Video: Great TV, an Inspiring Author, and a Humble Tango by da-AL

My husband I do a little dance for our dear cousins.

Someone said that a good story makes you both laugh and cry. To me, a remarkable story does all that while capturing the nuances of how each of us can be wonderful yet flawed. Bramwell, a TV show I only recently discovered, does it all. It’s from the 1990s, which apparently is so old that the closest to a trailer for it that I could find for you is this opening…

I’m discussing Bramwell to tell you about the inspiring screenwriter. Wikipedia notes, “Lucy Gannon once worked as a military policewoman, a residential social worker, and a nurse, and lived in a concrete council house with no central heating. She later moved to a converted barn in Derbyshire and now lives near Cardigan, in Wales.” Here she describes how she came to writing…

And here, my friends, is a tango that my husband and I danced for our dear cousins in Gold Coast, Australia…

What makes great writing for you?

  1. Oh wow, Gannon sounds like an incredible lady with such vibrant history, such tenacity to get to where she did. I agree that a good story captures nuances and the good as well as the human nature of us all, flaws and all. I also find a good story makes you feel something, it moves you in some way and makes you empathise with characters. Loved your tango video, it’s calming to watch… you move so smoothly, I wish I could do that!! Knowing me I’d slip over in heels on that shiny floor before even starting 😉
