Summer is a coming to an end. Today’s the final gig for Nonsuch at the British Museum. Musical of Musicals is over and I’m almost done my dissertation. I’ll be publishing material from my dissertation soon, so look out for it.
Part of being a creative entrepreneur is learning to work on the fly. I had a dentist appointment this morning at 10 followed by a coffee meeting at 2.30. There isn’t enough time to go home between these appointments so I am faced with about 3 hours to fill. I could window shop, sit in […]
