🔥🔥 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…treated myself to a delicious Thai Gang Dang curry on my way home from work. The beauty of living in a city with so many choices of great food.
Today’s positive…working from home today. Nice treat not having to commute and get dressed up. Happy Friday all.
Today’s positive…when you spend most of your day in an air-conditioned office it is so nice to head outside for a short break and feel the sunshine warm your body. A perfect day in Sydney.
Today’s positive…on a tight work deadline this week. Managed to get it all done on time, and that sense of accomplishment is making Friday evening even sweeter. Happy weekend all.
Today’s positive…after a long day at work it feels good to hop into bed early and just relax to the sound of the rain outside.
Today’s positive…a great start to my week. Early morning mediation followed by short yoga session. Productive day at work and tonight I managed to get to the gym and put together newsletter for my writers group. Feeling pretty good about my day. How was your Monday?
Today’s positive…team drinks at local club after work; a welcome relief after a high pressured week. The magic of laughter.
