Emily Knight seems to be doing pretty well at the minute. People are becoming more aware of it and are saying great things. I just need to get this campaign going asap. I've been asked to be a blogger for Brit Writers AND join a panel at my old uni for a discussion on digital publishing. Very excited about this! Awaiting news to see where Emily will be stocked in bookstores. Eek! Hopefully it's good news.
Emily Knight facebook page has gone from 1,444 likes to.....2,866!!! Thank you gorgeous people for liking - don't unlike now! My aim is to get 10,000 likes by December. Yes I do know it's in 2 months but a girl can dream right?
I've almost finished The Hunger Games trilogy. I love, love, love it. Quite surprised how similar Katniss and Emily are, great minds eh Ms Collins? Strong female lead characters is what the world needs, I wish I read Hunger Games when I was a kid. Children are so lucky with the diversity they get in books now - there's still more diversity to be done but it's in a pretty good place.
I've had a break from doing Dance as I've been trying to complete Emily Knight 2 by Christmas. I do have a title but that's for another blog. But I'm hoping to do a bit more dance in November. Teaching dance everyday (apart from Saturday) is super challenging but when I think back to being in Monsoon Accessorize, I realise how grateful I am to be in the position I'm in. How many people at 24 years old can say they earn a living doing the two things they love?
MYSELF held auditions for the youth company ME.I, now all females and boy was I blown away, so many strong dancers. I'm so excited to see what they do on this UK scene. I predict a lot of FIRE! Aleta came up with a great logo for them as the I LOVE ME.I one flopped - it's ME. I LOVE UK DANCE. Get it? And imagine the love as Union Jack Love Heart. Very cool.
It was Nick Adam's leaving St Mary's show and wow. We went out with a BANG! I really do forget how amazingly talented people are and St Mary's was over bursting with it. It was amazing seeing all the old faces again, I felt like I was 15. It was especially cool dancing with my very first crew Poison Ivy. When I got the facebook message, I almost dropped my phone. I was at first a bit hesitant but then I thought screw it, it will be a laugh and it really was. It was a great send off for a great man and I'm so happy my childhood into teen years were spent at St Marys. If it wasn't for Nick I wouldn't be teaching dance and have travelled around America and Jamaica. Who knows what kind of hood rat I would of evolved into. So thank you Nick. Living Legend.
Driving through Chingford, my driving instructor Costas goes, 'Are you feeling okay?'
'Yeah, why?' I said.
'Because you're driving really good!'
Haha everyone is a comedian.
Mum caught Fergie chasing a fox......yeah, I don't know what to say either.
