  1. It’s good to know your work is finding its own reward. To your blog readers who haven’t taken the plunge — It’s a great read!

    P.S. Directorial tip: never touch your hair on camera.

      Laurna – 🙂 Many thanks for the endorsement and the tip. The darn stuff just falls forward. I need some glue . . .

      • During my brief career in theatre we used many types of “sky hooks” in this department, short of staples and nails (used in other departments). Hidden hair pins, smoothed-over teasing (back-combing), hairspray, a slight change or addition to the styling are solutions that spring to mind. Maybe that’s why teleprompters were invented: so the actors did not have to bend their heads to read a script. You could post your script “writ large” behind your camera and read without holding your copy. That would also free both hands for dramatic gestures. I wouldn’t want to disturb the “Masterpiece Theater” effect, however.

          Laurna – LOL. Boy, it would have to be some-big piece of paper, as Newfoundlanders say. Some big. I suspect a podium might work better but, in truth, I am likely to get all the technical details sorted about the time I finish doing them.

    Great stuff, Isabel
    I just downloaded a copy onto my Kindle, and will include a blurb about your project in my next week’s blog.

  3. Congratulations! Perseverance is always needed, and I am glad you are now rewarded. Inspiring!

      Judith – Many thanks. I suspect it’s better to have written a book than to be writing one, but a lot of life seems to be like that. 🙂
