Marlijn Weerdenburg will perform on Friday at 6 p.m. during NPO Radio 2's first online festival. The presenter and actress released her debut album Marlijn on March 13. The performance can be followed via YouTube and NPO Radio 2.

My debut album was released on Friday the 13th. I should have known, of course. That it is not convenient. The Corona virus took over the world and every planned promo for the album immediately felt wrong to do so. So we stopped everything, with pain in my heart, because it took 2.5 years of work, love and energy. Everything felt out of place. Still actually, so unfortunately peanut butter. Who knows it might come later. Now we first have to take care of each other. The elderly, the weaker of our society. I am thinking, for example, of Veerle, from the series 'Just ff different' that I made last year. She falls within the risk group, my own father; with only 1 kidney and a chemotherapy past. My neighbor who lives with a lung disease, so let's keep our distance. Stick to the measures and if you are bored. Then there is music. For example from Dutch soil. That can offer comfort, make you happy or bring you closer to your feelings. @ nporadio2 has its first online festival, to support the artists of Dutch soil and to make it a bit more cozy at home in your living room. Because people, let's make it as nice as possible in those living rooms! Next Friday evening, I will be singing live from my living room, for you. And that same evening many more artists follow, from their own living room. @judyblankmusic, @dannyveramusic, @mellvintagefuture, @edstruijlaart @deardarlyn @douwebob @steffenmorrisonmusic @elskedewall @voltage_nl and @ilsedelangemusic.

My humble dream is to lift your spirits while we're #socialdistancing (heck, I want to lift my own) and storytelling is the tool I know how to use. So I'm writing an interactive serialized romance novel for @voguemagazine. It's a fictionalized modern love story called #VerifiedStrangers - A chapter a day, Monday through Friday, for as long as it takes ... and you can vote via poll which direction it should go next! First chapter is up now! Read along and let me know which way you want it to go (polls are up on Vogue's IG stories every Tuesday and Friday) and you will ultimately decide who (if anyone!) Our protagonist, Ally, ends up with. I hope you are all safe and sound. Sending love and hopefully some happy entertainment. The link to read along is in my bio! Oh - and ask me questions with the hashtag #VerifiedStrangersOnVogue and I'll answer some on IG stories and in comments too! Will you tell me what moments made you laugh, cringe or relate?

Paulien is still publishing the book

Although the book presentation of Japan in a hundred small pieces will not take place in April, Paulien Cornelisse has decided to publish the book after all. "Because I notice myself that I sometimes have a really bad need for things that have nothing to do with corona. Not to exclude it or to deny what's going on. But because I don't want to freeze the world either," he said. the writer.

Look dear followers, here I am meeting with my publishing team, which is nice but also very much needed. When I was writing my new book 'Japan in a hundred small pieces', the world looked very different from now. I find it bizarre how different everything feels now. I had planned a book presentation (in April), but it is canceled. I also thought: should I only publish my book much later? Are you waiting for a book about Japan? If there are no more important issues now, I have decided that the book will be published in mid-April. Why? Because I notice myself that I sometimes really need things that are not related to corona. Not to shut it out or deny what's going on. But because I don't want to freeze the world either. Fun things that have to go on must continue. Japan is a country that has interested me since I was five and has loved it for a long time. The book is ready. It goes to the printer. And hopefully it will come to you! In any case, you can order it in advance via the link in my bio, then you will receive a (signed) copy sent by @scheltemaboekverkopers. And other bookstores will also succeed, whether their shop is open or closed. My secret wish is that in a while people everywhere in the Netherlands will be sitting on their couch reading about that nice Japanese woman who was already in the tenth century (! ) wrote columns. Or about that mysterious beast that eats your nightmares. Or about the jeans brand Edwin (is that Japanese then? Yes!). And that all those people are gone with their heads, in Japan.
