I've finished my review of Dido and Aeneas at the Royal Opera House. I'm kicking myself for not taking better notes during the performance, especially since I'm not used to writing about music and can't pull from my memory to flesh this one out very well. Just four days later and WHOOSH! It's nearly all gone.

Now that I've fed the monkey I can get on to housework. Ooh baby. I lead such an exciting life.

Why dont you send some of your reviews to a local newspaper. They might well pay you for them, or sort out free tickets for shows you are reviewing.

I wish I felt like that was possible! This is a really competitive market for writers and the quality is really high - and there are other bloggers who write far better than I do. I don't think there's any chance of me getting on anywhere here.

Did you get the email I sent you about whatsonstage.com recruiting?

I did but I kinda flipped through it since it was my first day back at work. I'll have to read a little more thoroughly!

I know people who have succeeded, and you write better than them. I suspect most writers just dont even try to submit to print publications.

My ex used to write theatre reviews for the Edinburgh Evening News - and I used to get dragged along to shows (Ok, some of them not so dragged ;)).. so I used to meet the reviewers, and read what they'd written, fairly often.

I think there's a bit of luck in getting selected as a "stringer" reviewer for a print publication - send them a good review to look at when they need someone else, and you're in.

But I do genuinely think you're good enough to do it, if you wanted to.
