The four P’s: Paragram, performance, poetry, prose

Can we do it? Can’t remember whose idea it was but there are 55 days to go, although any moment now the clock will hit midnight and it’ll be 54. 

Some of our writing group has not ventured recently into the world of performance and I have to admit it was a long time ago when I last stood on a stage. My very first appearance was at the age of five when I played the Star of Bethleham in the school play. I had the only speaking part and rehearsed for many hours with mum and dad until I had it word perfect. On the day I managed to muddle the verses but hopefully no one noticed, except mum and dad of course. 

Paragram is the name we are calling ourselves as a performance group. This is a first for us but we are working hard to make sure our first appearance in November will go off with a bang – catherine wheels, rockets, sparklers –  anything we can keep back from Guy Fawkes night plus some more.

We are busy choosing our best pieces for performance and also for the book we are pulling together for sale on the night. Posters have been designed, tickets will be printed and sold. Remedies for cold feet are being sought. I hope I don’t muddle my verses this time!

My name's Jill but I'm Jack of all trades and master of none. I've been writing, mainly poetry and short pieces for a long time and decided to concentrate a little harder to see if I can master this at least. I paint both the house and pictures when inspiration strikes. I am a country bumpkin who loves to be outdoors and enjoy meeting interesting people.
