Today’s positive…learning, once again, that too often life’s challenges are wrapped up and in disguise. Once we move out of the “poor me” phase they are really opportunities for growth teaching us valuable lessons about ourselves and the world we live in.

Today’s positive….meeting with Joel Naoum from Critical Mass regarding best publishing strategy. Highly recommend it to anyone not sure of next step or where to focus.

I now feel I have a much clearer idea on what I need to do next and I’m excited about getting stuck into it.

Today’s positive….to read the banter between my daughters in our messenger group is a joy; the oldest on a holiday in Japan and the youngest doing a short roadtrip across the US. The adventures and the fun both are having makes me smile. So glad they are having these marvellous opportunities.

Travelling is a great educator and such fun.

Today’s positive was stepping out of my comfort zone and submitting my photo to the Canon Light Award. I didn’t win but I felt like a winner just by submitting and being reviewed and critiqued. Brief was for a natural urban landscape shot with more than one story. Mine was “composting or littering Mother Earth”

A great learning experience. Now I just need to find the same guts and polish up my novel for submission.

A full day out today attending the Sydney Writers Festival at Carriage Works in Redfern. A perfect autumn day enjoying lunch in the sun with a friend getting inspired by some amazing author talks. Especially loved learning about how to disappear (might need that for one of my characters in my next novel). Of course I returned home with a bag of new books to read.
