Catching up...

With the redraft redrafted I've been catching up on the dreaded paperwork. It's inevitable, in the heady freelance world, that the attention does need to be occasionaly turned to some admin. But knowing that doesn't make it any easier, nor ease the feeling that time might be better spent staring into space dreaming up some other insignificant cock and bull story that I could waste my time on. When Richard Eyre took over at the National Theatre - nicely documented in his diaries National Service - the cartoonist Raymond Briggs issued a warning, via letter, against taking up the post. The warning included the following:

You are a creative artiste and
must not become a boring civil servant.
All artistes who get anywhere are
in danger of getting SUCKED OFF
into Administration.

So, with that in mind, I'll crack on with the paperwork.
