Sorry for being the worst blogger.

We have so much to catch up on too. We should definitely start with the shame that is the delay on the On/Off book. Most of you have been so patient and not given me any more aggro than I'm having already in trying to get this project out the door (well, through your front doors) and I'm really grateful for that. Understandably some of you have been in touch illustrating your frustration in the delay, it has been over 13 months since launching it via PledgeMusic after all - for which I am so apologetic - I genuinely had no idea anything could ever take this long. The great news is the book will be with us before Christmas and is looking bloody magic apparently. In the meantime, here's MIA in an outtake from the On/Off shoot with her in Leeds that time. She's a great. Thanks and sorry again.

Chance To See: On/Off Prints

It's still going! The lovely and generous souls of Gibson Guitars kindly offered up their windows for 2 whole months for me to display a selection of prints from my War Child On/Off project. Please go have a look - you can buy them here if you'd care to and support the powerful work of War Child with a mere click of your mouse. Artists include: Muse, MIA, Arctic Monkeys, Take That, Flying Lotus, Paul Weller, Prodigy, Rudimental... The Gibson Guitar Studio is at 61–62 Eastcastle Street, London, W1T 2AA, just north of Oxford Street. THANK YOU.

Dave Eggers is my hero. Seriously.

I really really admire this person. So much so that I got embarrassingly starstruck and did a LOT of staring at him, which I hope wasn't too noticeable (or cringey). If you don't know Dave Eggers, my favourite works of his are The Circle and Zeitoun plus the whole McSweeney's thing too is a wonder BUT he also came up with the idea for The Ministry of Stories and now they're dotted around the world giving kids the chance to invest more time in their creative writing skills, after school and behind a themed shopfront. It's beautiful and brilliant and so worthwhile. Here sits THE LEGEND with Nick Hornby and Paddy Doyle, being interviewed at Second Home last week by three Junior Minister writers aged ten or so. Everyone laughed a lot including me, though I doubt everyone filled up 3 times and nearly cried. It's cos I'm a parent I'm sure but honestly, if anything was going to set me off it was this.
