Who’s Coming Back?

I’ve decided I’m a terrible writer…

That’s right, boys & girls; you heard it here first before you hear it anywhere else! Ha.

I loved writing this blog. Every single post – good & bad, short & long, significant or less so – meant something to me.

This blog, it helped me through the dark times & ensured I remembered the good. But I stopped, abruptly with no warning; discarded it like a broken toy on the side of the road (or a simile less dramatic) as bigger, better, newer ‘toys’ came calling (obviously, by ‘toys’ I mean writing jobs).

It’s been so long since I last blogged (I like that word, it’s my new favourite) that I actually can’t remember my last blog and I’m far too last to look (yes, it only requires me to touch one button on my screen but, you know, that’s just how I roll). It was probably about 7 months ago and detailed, unnecessarily, the frustration at having to wait for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Yeah, because everyone wants to read a blog about waiting around & battling boredom (!).

Anyway, it’s been so long since I last updated this blog that life has inevitably changed & I miss this blog. I miss, in all the chaos of my new writing jobs (which I love) & exciting new business ventures, being able to spill my thoughts – rawly and without much coherency – out onto this digital page and write – solely – for fun. For me. Yep; it’s completely self-indulgent and no; I don’t care. You shouldn’t either because, let’s face it, I’m frigging hilarious and that. Just sayin’. Yeah…

So…

Get ready world – Sophiewho’s blog is coming back with full, unwavering and unapologetic force. Or something. Maybe not. But it will be coming back and it will be good (I hope) and, whilst I won’t be able to update it as much as I once did, I’ll be making every effort to do so as much as I can for as long as I can.

Happy blogging!

Until next time, please follow my theatre company on Twitter (I love it now – how much I’ve changed) and check out the online magazine I’m Deputy Editor of because… Well, we’re COOL and we do GOOD stuff.

Oh, and one more thing (probably not, actually)…

Happy Mother’s Day!

Every single Mother out there is amazing and I’m constantly confronted and inspired by strong women who confidently juggle work & Motherhood on a daily basis.

Being a Mum is tough, being a working Mum is even tougher but, for every tough day are 100+ beautiful & rewarding ones that make it all worth while!

Since I was last here, I graduated from my Masters, had a play professionally produced in Camden, set up a theatre company with 2 incredibly talented friends, signed 2 more theatre contracts for productions in London later on in the year, got myself a job as Public Relations Officer of my local Borough Council’s annual business awards & became Deputy Editor of a wonderful feminist art magazine – promoting women in business and in the arts.

It may seem like an impressive workload whilst being a Mother but, honestly, I couldn’t have done any of it without the support from my own, working, Mum.

Lastly…

I wouldn’t change any of it for anything!

Chow for now (or something less pretentious).

Who’s Manifesto?

I’m a Writer, not a socialite. I’m not going to claim to leave you smiling and laughing to yourself merrily once you’ve slaved over this page and I’m not particularly interested in forcing you to like me.

What I am interested in are words. Words and people watching. Oh, and passing cynical judgements on ‘current affairs’ and social taboos I like to think I understand…

I won’t sit here and tell you how to do your make up or pretend I know what you should be wearing during these harsh winter months in order to fit in with the superficial fashionistas of this empty, consumerist society.

I won’t masturbate all over this website with stories of my daily social dilemmas or a coherent spreadsheet recording my weekly bowel movements, you know, just for your ‘reading pleasure’.

I have more respect for you than to subject you to such dull and unnecessary bouts of self-centred idiocy. I hope.

What I will do during the course of these currently virginal pages is this:

– Love
– Hate
– Discuss
– Explore…

… And generally have the balls to express my own opinions on the world around me in all it’s vile and illogical glory.

I hereby declare, from this moment fourth, my innermost thoughts at your scrutiny.

Be ruthless. It’s just more fun that way.
