🔥🔥 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…lunch out with workmates enjoying a great club meal. All returned back full and in serious need of a nap. I had Schnitzel Boscaiola. Maybe not overly healthy but damn enjoyable!
Today’s positive…first day back at work after ten day break. Hard to have to get up with the alarm, but once there it was nice to catch up with the few back early.
Today’s positive…I love how, in spite of my workplace being super busy and all of us feeling tired as we near the end of the year, we all still work together as a team to get things done. A positive fun workplace makes any task easier.
Today’s positive…team drinks at local club after work; a welcome relief after a high pressured week. The magic of laughter.
Today’s positive…in spite of work pressure being pretty high on a daily basis we still manage to have fun and crack jokes every day. Having a supportive and caring work environment makes the working week so much more enjoyable.
Today’s positive…our GM telling he wants to organise for me to go to our state offices and meet key sales stakeholders made my day. I don’t normally travel much for work, so this will be a nice change.
Today’s positive…enjoying a work dinner being treated to delicious seafood at beautiful riverfront restaurant. Felt very spoilt.
For some reason yesterdays post didnt process. Maybe my cold infused brain mucked it up. So here you have two for one
Today’s positive 2/9….waking to the sound of rain and being Sunday knowing I can stay in bed. Best feeling
Today’s positive 3/9 …working for an understanding boss who doesn’t insist on work getting done when you are not well.
Today’s positive….one of those days where everything was an uphill battle. Except we still managed to destress and have fun during our lunch break at work. The silly banter and laughter made the working day so much easier. Good workmates make all the difference.
