Here I am again back in prison. I was let out for 3 days only to be caught for grammar and bad spelling infringements and dragged back kicking and screaming. They have put me in a cell with people who have got tens of thousands of followers on their blogs. People who never have to use a grammar check and know how to spell broccollii. I’m here till I get my act together and make the content of my posts more engaging.
In reality though, I was back on the set of the new TV series directed by Stephen Merchant. Filming in Shepton Mallet prison again. I can’t go into mush detail as it hasn’t been released yet, unlike me.
The photos I have put up are of me and some of the actors playing prison guards. Nothing to do with the show just taking random shots in the green room. I truly lovely bunch of guys. I hope to meet them on another production on day. And…saying that, I have just had a message from the casting company to ask if I’m available to film for a new drama next week and guess what…back in Shepton Mallet. How weird
Luckily enough I had some time on my hands to visit the city of Wells while I was down in that in Somerset. Gob smackingly beautiful. The oldest and only remaining medieval street in the UK, an amazing cathedral and such a fantastic oldy worldy feel about it.
Ok. Right, here’s the thing. I have been so wrapped up recently in getting some more stories published that I have neglected my website. The food, the travel and other stuff are feeling left out. I didn’t realise this would be a full-time job and I’m not complaining, I love this, I just have to spread myself out a bit more. The idea was to get more stories in print on various platforms so I could up my profile which would increase the chance of a publisher taking my book on. I have had about ten rejections and one acceptance from Abergavenny small press, here’s the link.https://www.asppublishing.co.uk/ian-mc-naughton-5 It’s a story from my book. I’m going to leave off the magazine submissions for a while I’m give some tender caresses to cardiffstoryweaver.
Here are some more pics of Wells.

( yeah, see what I mean? I’ve gone AWOL on the real reason why I am here) Things will get tastier on my blog as time goes by.
