Resident Author Programme
My most recent project is called the resident author programme. As I can convert manuscripts into e-books and help others build simple websites and even create Amazon Author Pages, I have begun to use those skills to help a group of old people in a nursing home to write their autobiographies and upload them to Amazon. If you like the sound of this project and would like to know more about how to set it up in a nursing home or community centre in your area then click on the link to Write Your Autobiography the Easy Way to find out more. This a project that can be carried out with groups in a community setting or with individual on a one-to-one basis.

And Now for Some Inspiration
A few years ago, a young man came up to me on the street one day and said that the message I wrote that Christmas stopped him from committing suicide and saved his life. Of course, the truth was, he saved his own life. I simply wrote something that inspired him to find a reason to keep going. If you want to know more about the Craighead Christmas Message and some small projects you can do yourself to make a difference then
You never know, you may just save a life.

I promised you free downloads, and here they are
- Mobile Users: you may need to get an app to view these zip files if you can’t normally open zip files.
- PC Users: you should be fine, but if you have a problem contact me
Why have I given you two panto scripts, a group constitution and examples of the paperwork you need to write to set up an athletics race?
In providing these resources, my aim is to show just how little time you need to spend to set up something as complex as an athletics race or an amateur dramatic society. I’d also like to think that if you are looking to run a drama workshop and need something to work with, but can’t pay performance fees or royalties to use something from an agency, the two scripts I’ve given you for free will tick that particular box.
Of course, if you use what I’ve given you, I’d love to know how you get on.
