Season XVI – Alphaday 8

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 8, Season XVI. We have just – nonchalantly – passed the halfway mark and there’s no sign of exhaustion as we prepare to complete the course. Far from it – and why should there be? The more Alpha energy we put into each Alphaday, the brighter our combined talents shine,…

Season XVI – Alphaday 7

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 7, Season XVI: the first Alphaday of 2020. We’re now in the 3rd week of the 3rd decade of the 3rd millennium and I hope this auspicious convergence of the lucky number 3 will bring fulfilment of your hopes for the future on all levels. We’re picking up the Alpha…

Season XV1 – Alphaday 6

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 6, Season XVI. Our Alpha-rhythm is moving steadily with its powerful beat, sweeping us all along in the flow. Do we need a little break just now when we’re fully immersed in what’s going on and waiting impatiently for what follows? Well, we’ll have one anyway. There’s a time for…

Season XVI – Alphaday 5

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 5, Season XVI. We’re making good progress – through the Alpha Season for starters, and that implies nothing more than following the programme as set. The more vague ambition is that we’re also making good progress in absorbing something that will help our ability to assess and improve our personal…

Season XVI – Alphaday 4

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 4, Season XVI. We’re moving on with everything we’ve got – our routine rolling smoothly and covering a variety of writerly topics to keep us on our inspired toes. It’s your input that provides the material for our shared benefit. Today’s agenda is a feast of writerly goodies that might…

Season XVI – Alphaday 3

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 3, Season XVI. Our season is now in full swing after the gentle lead-up while we set everything in motion. It’s now up to you to make the most of it and join in all things writerly from the actual writing and feedback, to sharing your experiences and your background…

Season XVI – Alphaday 2

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 2, Season XVI. We’re still cranking up the Alpha machinery and we’ll have to wait till next Alphaday before we’re in full flow. We’ve started well and there was plenty to get us going in our opening session. Our trusted Alpha team has been busy preparing for Alphaday 2. Every…

Season XVI – Alpha Day 1

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 1 Season XVI. We’ve put a lot of Alpha seasons behind us, and we intend to add many more – and making them better every time. It is my privilege to set the Alpha machinery in motion. I give it the initial push, and then – with the willing and…

Season XV – Alphaday 13

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 13, Season XV. Our annual break is coming up and this is our last formal Alphaday. There are only three items on the agenda but two of them concern the final flourish of this season and the planning of the forth-coming season. That should give you plenty to mull over.…

Season XV – Alphaday 12

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 12, Season XV. We may be winding down and working our way towards our well-deserved annual break in Alpha activities, but the operative word here is still ‘working’ and we have quite a few tasks lined up for you which I expect will appeal to your writerly instincts. Today’s agenda…

Season XV – Alphaday 11

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 11, Season XV. While I was doing my duty as your coordinator and busying myself coordinating the various items on today’s agenda, I caught myself committing a writerly faux-pas: the single word ‘last’ popped up more often than is compatible with a decent writing style. We’re approaching the end of…

Season XV – Alphaday 10

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 10, Season XV. We’re ready for another full Alphaday with all the writerly treats you’ve come to expect, and I’m confident you’ll enjoy every part of it. From now on, and until the end of this season, however, some of our items will appear for the last time until after…

Alphaday 9 – Season XV

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 9, Season XV. Moving on in full flow and ready for another influx of writerly goodies. I’ve said it before and I’ll repeat it because I believe our group’s true worth lies in this: we don’t teach – we learn. There’s so much to take in from such a varied…

Alphaday 8 – Season XV

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 8, Season XV. We continue our Alpha routine, which isn’t really a routine because there’s no sameness about it – quite the contrary. Every Alphaday is different with a fresh input from all our members that brings us new insights into what it is to be a writer and to…

Alphaday 7 – Season XV

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 7, Season XV. We’re already halfway through this season. This is not a culmination to be followed by a downward slope, though, far from it. We’ve reached the top, true, and we’ll stay up here for a while yet, within our tried and tested Alpha framework, and let our writing…

Alphaday 6 – Season XV

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 6 and to the year 2019 which is still uncharted waters with a wealth of opportunities waiting to be snapped up. I hope we’ll make the most of it and enjoy the pleasure of words that perform the desired tricks to perfection. With Alpha we’ll continue to share our passion…

Alphaday 5 – Season XV

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 5, Season XV. This is the last Alphaday of 2018 and I expect you’re ready for a mid-season break. In fact we’re only just over a third of the way through, but I think we’ve packed a lot into this first part. We’ve been treated to a wealth of varied…

Alphaday 4 – Season XV

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 4 Season XV. We’ve now settled comfortably into the full Alpha routine. ‘Comfortably’ is perhaps not the best word to describe the dynamic energy that drives us forward with everyone joining in, making Alphadays the trigger for a varied and stimulating amount of writerly activity. This Alphaday is no exception,…

Alphaday 3 – Season XV

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 3, Season XV. This is one of our favourite Alphadays: all the elements have been carefully assembled; the scene is set, the players are in place, performing and doubling up as audience. We’re ready for the first Alphaday with a full agenda. The season is now finally in full swing…

Season XV – Alphaday 2
