Writing and Gàidhlig Updates: Month of March

It's far too warm as I write this update, but the forecast for the weekend promises cooler temperatures and snow on Monday! Very strange, but I can't say I haven't enjoyed the sun.

I've already posted most of what follows in social networking feeds, but I thought I'd consolidate it here for the sake of a proper update. On the writing front, the big news is the Scheherazade's Facade Kickstarter campaign, which is three-quarters of the way funded after its first week. Mòran taing to all who have promoted and donated to bring this anthology to print. Your support has meant a lot to me.

In other news, I've filled the great, grizzly plot hole in the center of my novel in a flash of inspiration that left me thinking, "Oh yeah! Of course that's what happens!" I'm a little later finishing up than I had hoped, but at least it's all downhill from here. No word on the agent front yet, but I'll post an update when I have news.

On the Gàidhlig front, many good things are happening. Sgoil Ghàidhlig's milling demonstration for Grade 3 teachers is next Thursday. In April, there will be two song ceilidhs for those of us who want to practice the Gàidhlig songs we're learning. In May, there's a great evening of entertainment on; the Taigh-Cèilidh at the Military Family Resource Centre in Halifax, and later that month there will be another milling demonstration at the Sackville library. Details about all these events can be found on the Sgoil Ghàidhlig News page.

Dìleab continues its Gaelic Family Night gatherings at the Port Wallis United Church beginning today. Details can be found here. Other workshops and events are in the planning stage as well, and I'll post information about those as soon as I have it.

Finally, I've heard noises about the live An Cliath Clis CD recorded last year, but nothing solid yet. That's another thing I'll post about when as I know something certain. I also haven't seen anything yet about the release of the short film "The Fiddler's Reel" except that it should be soon. Again, I'll keep you posted.

That's it for now. Enjoy the lovely weather, if you've got it!
