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 my goodness–how I love the tango. Exquisite, sexy, romantic, poetic! I watched the earlier videos of you two as well. Thank you for this treat. I have many “favorite” TV shows—all either European or from the UK, at least one from Canada, and several from Australia, and New Zealand. We stream Acorn and MHZ Choice. So I understand your love for “Bramwell.”

  2. This is why I love blogging – posts like this –
    Give a little bit of the blogger personal stuff and then a tidbit about something readers want – (like a book – food – or a show as you shared here) I am going to watch the other two videos now ….

  3. What a fascinating person Lucy Gannon is – such an interesting interview. Her writing process is unique as she has no formal education but is totally devoted to doing something she loves and obviously loves to write.
    As for your tango – you and your husband are wonderful dancers, a delight to watch.

  4. I never heard of the series you mention, but then I didn’t own a tv in the 1990s. But the trailer looks interesting.
    The screenwriter is an inspiring person, I must say!

    And your tango, nothing “little” about that … you are getting- or are already – quite the experts.

    I like different things about different authors. Sometimes it is the story, sometimes the protagonists and the way they are portrayed, sometimes the language in itself …

  6. I like novels, simple stories, or a fascinating stories, page turners and the word flowing smoothly, like your tango with your husband 🙂

  7. 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 😉
