Unfortunately today feels like a loss.
After Leeds last week and a screening of 9.
To 10 in a woodshed in Bristol on Friday.
To 4 in Newcastle today. I’m a bit deflated.
Actually I’m a lot deflated. I’m a 2 week old balloon. That you have to squeeze to prick with a pin because it’s too flaccid.
I knew it was going to be a hard one. Sales were bad for a while. So after a load of Social media, Tweeting everyone that has “Newcastle” and “mental health” in their profiles – and a few that didn’t .
I was even on community radio this morning plugging the night, and still only 6 sold. – and not all of them turn up. It’s hard not to take it personally.
My eldest saying to me “Daddy why are you leaving us again?” – traveling 5 hours to get here ( and longer back tomorrow) Feeling guilty that BrewDog have paid for my Travel and accommodation etc for me to be here.
When is the juice not worth the squeeze?
When the screenings are good they’re great. When they are bad I feel awful. Tonight I feel awful. Let’s hope the people in there think it was worth their time and energy.
