NEW YORK DAY SIX: BATTENING DOWN FOR SANDY

 Queues at the supermarket - Lucy Robinson Blog Hurricane Sandy

Wow! After years of talking about bollocks, I now find myself writing a breaking news current affairs blog. I AM IN THE PATH OF HURRICANE SANDY. I AM IN MANHATTAN. I am one of millions of people who have spent today getting candles and water and crisps and possibly quite a lot of cheese too, cos I love cheese innit. Oh god I love cheese. Anyway, just like Fran, my protagonist in The Greatest Love Story of All Time, I suddenly find myself lined up to report on a major news event. Unlike Fran I am not going to start punching … Continue reading

A BIT O’ NEWS

 Ryedale Logo

Hello friends. Just a few of little bits of news from, well, me. RYEDALE BOOK FESTIVAL Firstly – and I love this – a group of drama students from the Kirkham Henry Performing Arts Theatre Company have spent the last few weeks scripting and rehearsing a scene from my debut novel, The Greatest Love Story of All Time, and they’ll be performing it at Ryedale Book Festival this weekend. Yours truly will open (and probably spoil) their dramatic interlude by reading a short extract from the book. Afterwards I’ll be doing a Q&A. I am totally thrilled that these talented young … Continue reading

Bang, went my face. I fell out of my high heels.

Well, it happened. Publication day came and went. My book (pictured – once only, I promise) is out there, in the world. Feck! I didn’t knob up my radio interviews too horribly, although I did have an awkward moment when one of the presenters made some gag involving my name. The gag was clearly designed to invite a reciprocal response but the problem with that was that I had already forgotten his name. An uncomfortable silence ensued as we both waited for me to remember. Eventually, somewhat wounded, he soldiered on. Other than that, all was well. I signed books, talked … Continue reading

Hush… There’s a deathly hush all around…

When I was twelve I wrote the lyrics for a song which began with the line above. Let’s just say it together, atmospherically: Hush…. There’s a deathly hush all around…. Oh, it was a classic. A few lines later it went “There’s gonna be a riot if it stays this quiet…” I mean, I was destined to be a writer! Oh, Robinson. Riot and quiet? Bless you, my little love. Bless you. Anyway. That’s sort of how it felt when I woke up this morning. There was a deathly hush all around. An eerie stillness broken only by an unseen finger that … Continue reading

Happy Easter, my friends! Hmmm. Normally Easter Sunday sees me locked in a resentful face-off with a boiled egg because I am unable to eat sugar and thus cannot stuff my face with chocolate. Naturally, it is always the boiled egg’s fault. Or, I will spend the day trying to outwit my parents’ dog Grouse, whose determination to steal any chocolate stored within four feet of the floor is matched only by the determination of Simon Cowell to fill the world with dreadful music. This year, however, I have to say I’ve barely even noticed that it’s Easter. I’m grateful to … Continue reading

Who ate all the fromage

Oh oui oui bloody OUI, readers! J’ADORE PARIS! Flaming arseballs, it was amazing. Why the hell did I wait until I  was 32 ? Well, I suppose I know why. And yes, as reasons go it was on the slightly silly end of the scale but since I outed myself at least five girlfriends and several blog readers (hell, they’re my girlfriends too!) have mailed me to say that they too have been waiting for lurve to arrive in their lives before going. If you are reading and you are one of these people, allow me to inform you that you’re making a … Continue reading

Robinson goes to Paris

HI THERE my dear Readers. I write to you in a state of great excitement. Firstly, I’ve just been to see Penguin, my publishers. It’s only six weeks until my novel is published – less, maybe – and they tell me that the retail world is going mad for it. And reviewers, bloggers, all sorts of people are loving it. I cannot put into words how extraordinary this news is to me. Honestly: I finished the thing and thought it was absolute turd. To think that something I’ve written is actually enjoyable to normal human beings is just beyond awesome. … Continue reading

Lucy Robinson is not so bad you know

I was talking to my friend earlier today. She is one of the most disgusting people I’ve ever met. Think you’re talented? Forget it. You’re not. Not next to her anyway. Think you’re creative? Pah! Good-looking? Bad news, my friend! She’s better than you! She is creative, she’s funny, she’s clever and she’s absolutely beautiful too. She is a photographer, designer, blogger, branding consultant, pianist and piano teacher and best of all she’s created this absolutely marvellous children’s brand called Florentine and Pig which is just the most wonderful jumble of cookery, hilarity and creativity in the world. If I was a … Continue reading

I AM GOING TO BE A PUBLISHED NOVELIST! WTF?! I cannae believe it! I’m very sorry to have kept this from you. But here, if you’re … Continue reading
