1000 Better Stories - Infinite Imagination

 


In October, I spent a few days virtually visiting the transition town of Dunbar to hear all about the work of development trust Sustaining Dunbar and to reflect on the life, work and resonance of conservationist John Muir.

A few years back, I had the pleasure of being able to visit Dunbar for real, working with The Ridge to create a comic which you can read for free online.

Making Waves

In the Before Times, back in the mists of "earlier this year", I worked as part of Inverclyde Libraries Making Waves project - developing and promoting local libraries as cultural hubs, spaces where creative activity can happen every day.

Our project was a comic club, The Splash Panel, which worked with a group of young people to create and share their own comic stories and explore how we read comics. We also collaborated on a 4 page comic, illustrated by Robin Henley, one of the winners of last years 2000AD / Thought Bubble talent search.

You can see all the wonderful community creativity on display, including our comic Kaiju attack on Greenock at the projects virtual exhibition.

Galoshans



All this week, I've been reading ghost stories for the Galoshans Festival, Inverclyde's traditional Hallowe'en celebration.

Tonights story is a little different, it's a reading from a work in progress, which is a little more horror based than the other stories. Maybe a 12A - 15 rating, depending on how scared you get of things.

Or maybe, I'm the one who's a big fearty and actually it's fine...

Galoshans Ghost Stories - The Berry Yards

These stories are maybe a bit scary for younger audiences, I'd rate them 12A.

Unless you want a wee fright, in which case, yer fine.

I maybe enjoyed myself a bit too much with the video for this one, but in my defence, I did used to program lots of text adventures on my 48k.
