The emergence of new life. Struggling against my not so green thumbs and patio life this snowpea is pushing through the challenge. Gives me hope.
🔥🔥 HOT OFF THE PRESS 🔥🔥
“King of the forest, old Silverback, fell down with a thump on the soft mulch-littered ground, and the whole forest held their breath. They realised something was wrong.”
A teaser for my children’s short story which I am SUPER excited to announce is now finally available in print as part of the Sutherland FAW anthology Webs of Life; a collection of short stories written by the many talented writers in the group.
It has taken several months of planning and organizing, and we can’t wait to officially launch the book at our Writers Unleashed festival on Saturday 17th August at Gymea Tradies in Sydney.
Also had my first taste of a writer’s reading yesterday. My workplace organised a BBQ and had me read the story. Was nerve racking and exciting at the same time. Happy to say the story was well received with lots of laughter and congratulations from everyone.
Enjoyed sharing that part of my life with my colleagues. To work at a place that encourages and supports employees in a life outside of work is heart-warming.
I’m feeling a bit more like a real writer today and it feels damn good.
If you would like a copy please DM me. Pre-orders before the festival at a discounted rate of $12 plus postage.
Today’s positive…my 20 minute morning yoga session is now preceded by 10 minutes of meditation. Perfect start to my day and my downward dog is definitely getting better. No longer feel like a stiff old whale going through the routine 😁
Today’s positive…feeling good about starting the rewriting of my MS. First chapter done.
Today’s positive… an all round successful and inspiring day. Our writers festival went super smooth and my consult with Lex Hirst from Pantera Press was extremely helpful. Feedback was very positive and some excellent constructive tips on tightening it up. I now know what I need to do next and Im feeling motivated and keen. But tonight its feet up and glass of wine for this exhausted but happy girl.
Today’s positive…proud to be involved in our local festival Writers Unleashed. Such a privilege and worthwhile experience.
Only 10 more sleeps
Today’s positive…chatting to my writer friend from last year’s NaNoWriMo reminding me of the great connections made and the beauty of giving ourselves permission to focus solely on just writing. Think I might just have to do it again this year. Who else is joining again…maybe? 😁
Today’s positive….writing up the newsletter for my local writers group every month is fun. Sent it out tonight. I love doing the research for the content and hopefully it helps improve my writing.
Today’s positive….nice to finish the week with a sense of achievement. Not only on a personal level but at work too. Makes you feel relaxed and at peace.
I think this weekend calls for some celebrations 😄
Today’s positive….on a roll. Another writing submission finalised. This time for The Next Chapter. A great initiative by The Wheeler Centre in Melbourne. Exhausted but feeling good.
Please send some positive winning vibes my way 😄🌷
