Woah! So it’s scary to think how long it’s been since I posted. I hate that I’ve gotten out of the habit but I have an excuse. TRANSOM. It has consumed me true and true. All I’ve been doing for the past 8 weeks is radio. Radio. Radio. Radio! But bizarrely I haven’t really listened to any radio. I’ve been soooooo fucking busy. [I’m finally getting a chance to do that. I’m listening to Reply All while I write this. It’s taken me a while to get into this show, but it really is very cool. Definitely check it out.]
So… what have I been doing for two months? Stressing the shit out of myself. Ha! And I’m really in the middle of that right now. I think I’ll look back at this post in a few weeks and be like what the fuck Ciara. This is not going to be the most amazing post. This is just a chance for me to basically reconnect and say hey!
The course has been going great. Very bloody intense. Lots of alone time to research your topics, conduct your interviews and produce radio! It’s non stop to be honest and it’s about to come to the end. Today is Sunday 8th November. This time two weeks I’ll be back in Dublin. I’m quite mixed about that. Dying to see family and friends but I don’t know what I’m doing next. I’m looking for a job in Radio [in Ireland and The States. I’d love to come back here] and writing of course. Hence the need to get back writing asap!!!! But I am still writing – radio scripts. Which is great to keep the oul pencil skills ticking over.
Anyway, I’ll post again properly soon. Actually the next piece I’m going to post is a little dated but it’s really relevant to the piece I’m working on and desperate to finish for next week.
Next Wednesday 18th this will all be over and then on Thursday we’ll be having our listening party. Oh god, scary!
