I’ve taken a leaf out of my mate Toby Frost’s book and started carrying a notebook around with me (moleskine, of course, to prove that I’m a proper writer), in which I jot down gags as they occur to me. However, the main gag in today’s episode dates back to a long way before I thus equipped myself, so I’ve been looking forward to writing this one for a long time.
I read the episode out at this week’s meeting of the VWC just to make sure that it was OK and afterwards Kevin Bennett (see –>) came up to me and said to me, “Has the horse got a name?” and I had to admit that it hadn’t. There then followed a discussion as to what the name should be, and I think it was Ian Cundell (see also –>) who suggested “Harley”. Well, it was either that or Arnold. Such is the value of being a member of a writers’ circle.
Now for some really important news: Mrs Darcy has her own Facebook page at last! So do drop in say you like her. Think of it as being a bit like Rage Against the Machine, only with more bonnets and less intemperate language.
