“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…I was listening to my favourite podcast on the way to work this morning when I heard my name mentioned. I had left a review a few weeks back on ITunes and it was read aloud. I just sat there at the red light with a massive smile which lasted all the way to work.
Do yourself a favour and check out their podcast So You Want To Be A Writer and let yourself be entertained by Allison Tait and Valerie Khoo.
Today’s positive…joined the RWA (Romance Writers of Australia) last week and got invited to join the google chat forum. Lovely bunch of supportive writers with a wealth of interesting topics and info. Liking it heaps so far.
Today’s positive…a day in the city meeting up with the Write Here group. Love the inspiration you get when you connect with other writers and I love heading into the city. It always inspires me and makes me feel alive
Today’s positive…..as part of the committee for our local writers festival I feel really proud to be organising their content on Facebook and Twitter. Its fun and great writing practise. Check out website. If you’re in Sydney mid August come along and say hi
