Tag Archives: Wrong Love

Cat yawningIt is with a heavy dose of hot shame that I admit to neglecting this old website of mine over the past couple of months. Work on my play Love, Wrong Love (but love nonetheless) dominated matters for a time but with the ending of its succesful and borderline-glorious run last week, I can turn my attention to how my lovely stories have been doing out in the Wild World. So what’s been published? What’s been accepted? Is there any other GREAT NEWS? Read on…

love 10 poster finishedThis is the Town.

Stories and strangeness abide here. We are slaves to both. Three stories; love and horror, humour and hate. The Risky Proximity Players have come to share them with you.

Francie & Dennis Are In Tonight

Have you lost something? Did someone get swallowed and disappear in the dark? Well come on down for the one-night performance of Francie & Dennis. No refunds. No guarantee of catharsis.

When it comes to friends, Mantha Tallun will take whatever she can get. (Except Alice Cleary)

‘You’re the Bomb, You Twisty Plonker!’

She came from Outside. She knew places he’d never heard of before – Drumcondra Road, Cabra, Fassaugh Avenue. Exotic places, a full forty minutes up the road. It would not, could not last.

Three stories of love and loss, presented to you without comment or hope.

Welcome to the Town.

We do things differently here.

Fresh from their sell-out show High Five, Danny O’C! the Risky Proximity Players bring you Love, Wrong Love (but love nonetheless) as part of the 10 Days in Dublin festival.

dun poicIn what is turning out to be banner frickin’ week over at Chez Tugwell, my short story ‘Corben Dennis’s Dad’s Gone Mad!’ has been published in the latest issue of Scintilla.

It’s about a group of boys and the charming larks they get up to. Head on over and have yourself a lovely read!

onionYoop and Yazoo and big jammy kisses, my short story ‘In Passing Brass Onion’ has been accepted for publication by the outstanding people over at Cactus Heart.

It’s a silly story, partly inspired by the wall in our kitchen. ‘What?’ you may say, ‘How could you write a story about that?’ and I’ll just wink and keep on dancin’.

It’ll be out soon. Keep those eyes peeled! Like an onion!

In which Christmas occurs and not much gets done.

This is going to be a short one, naturally enough, and I’m writing this a full day early as my good friend Adam is coming to stay for a couple of days which promises to be almost too much fun. Anyway, Christmas is over and done with for another year and I have taken time off from submissions, have received no rejections, have tried instead to have a lovely relaxing time. And I have, for the most part. I am mildly ashamed of my pessimism in the last post in this series (go read for some mawkish whinging, if that is your thing) but I feel much better after getting it all out. As a good friend of mine used to say, it does you no good keeping it inside– get it out, walk around it, see how small it really is. Maybe she was talking about gallstones or something but I think it applies to this situation as well.

So I am in a much better place to attempt an honest next week’s end-of-year retrospective thingy which you won’t want to miss! (Feel free to miss it. I won’t mind! I won’t even know!) Anyway, with the understanding that I have done very little this week, let’s still ask– what have I done this week?
