I wrote an article for Hecklerspray about how an independent Scotland would kick ass at Eurovision.
(Also if you want to re-live Saturday’s Eurovision experience, we live blogged it here.)
This week on 12 Books in 12 Months I chat to The Rogue Verbumancer about characters I’ve loved and lost.
And here’s my weekly Ten Tracks post, featuring details of upcoming Roofraiser gigs.

Interview with White Heath and The Valkarys for STV Local
Guest post for Mslexia on finding your voice as an author
I helped out with live coverage of election night for The Edinburgh Reporter (manning the twitter, taking photos and uploading results posts) which extended from 8.30pm on election night until 4pm the following day.
I did a post on my personal blog about advice I’ve received on freelance journalism which blatantly belongs here, I have just realised. Perhaps I’ll post it here later.

Oot – The May edition of my What’s On column in the Broughton Spurtle
Interview with Friends are Friends (formerly Epic 26) – The penultimate article for STV Local in the series about the bands involved in the Sick Kids Charity CD, No Colour Too Strong to Paint, which will be launched this Saturday (May 7) at Maggie’s Chamber in the Cowgate. Unfortunately I can’t go, but I’m sure it’ll be a good night.
