Friday Night Dinner and Book Blurb

You may remember me writing about a series launch Barry and I went to a couple of weeks ago. The series is called 'Friday Night Dinner' and the first episode is being shown at 10:00 pm tonight on Channel 4. It's written by Robert Popper who wrote 'The Timewaster Letters' and 'The Timewaster Diaries', 'Look Around You' and a few episodes of 'South Park' among other things.  I'm looking forward to watching it again.

The other thing I'm excited about is a new meme being organised by Lisa Ricard Claro of 'Writing in the Buff. It's called 'Book Blurb Friday' and starts next Friday, March 4th. Basically, the objective is to write a book blurb prompted by an illustration Lisa will post on her blog. You can find out more about it here. The first photo has been posted so, if you think you'd like to participate, you have a week to think about the book the photo might accompany!


  1. Hi Janice - I checked out the Book Blurb idea, and saved the photo so I can look at it until Friday. Trouble is, it is looking right back at me!
    Could be an interesting meme. It never ceases to amaze me how different people can see the same photo in such widely divergent ways.

  2. That meme sounds interesting. Think I'll go check it out now. Enjoy your series:)
    Happy weekend

  3. Thanks for your comment on my blog and for the shout out here. I so appreciate the support and hope this new meme will be fun for everyone, as well as create some great ideas for stories. Thanks again!

  4. I'll have to check out the book blurb meme! Hope I have time to participate.

  5. The book blurb meme sounds fun, as does the TV series. Must've been interesting to attend the launch.

  6. Just been over to have a look at that meme - looks so interesting. Now if I can only squeeze it in with all the others... Have a great weekend.

  7. Sounds very interesting Janice, I'll have to come back and read your first contribution.
