Stats Approaches: 79 Number/Social Media: 23 Dates: 9 Near Misses: 3 Lays: 1 I don’t normally list near misses but on this trip … Continue reading Belgrade Review
I got an email from a student called Mr S. He was asking about what to do if a stranger comes into the set and how often it happens to me. Specifically if they are a white knight/cockblocker/virtue signaller/”concerned onlooker.” This is an expanded version of my reply to him (I rattled off an initial … Continue reading Q&A: What Should I Do If A Stranger Comes Into The Set?
