Last night (as you’ll know if you are a friend on Facebook or following me on Twitter where I have gone on and on and on and on and on about it) I had a story read out at a local event organised by White Rabbit.
It was held at The George Hotel, Ashford and the room was decked out in a 1950s Mad Hatter’s tea party style with the tables covered in flowers, playing cards, cucumber rolls and, most importantly, cakes.
The theme was ‘secrets’ and my story was read out by Gareth Brierley (who is one of the organisers, along with Bernadette Russell).
Gareth totally ‘got’ my story and read it out exactly (if not better) than it sounded in my head.
The other stories that were read out were so great, I was honoured to be a part of it. At the end, we were all given a copy of our stories, beautifully bound.
Thanks to Peggy at East Kent Live Lit for giving me the push to submit my story and thanks to White Rabbit for a fab evening.
Thrilled doesn’t begin to cover it.
