2021 Goals Midpoint Check-in

This was supposed to be my quarterly check-in. I found it in my drafts folder today. Oops! I am usually a stickler for having these types of posts go up on the last day of the period they refer to or the first day of the following period, but here we are. 😂 This yearContinue reading “2021 Goals Midpoint Check-in”

What I Achieved in 2020

When I posted my 2020 Writing Goals on the first of January, Australia was basically on fire. My city was shrouded in smoke, as were others, and N95 masks had sold out across the country. At the time, we thought it couldn’t really get much worse. March 30 was my first day working from home.Continue reading “What I Achieved in 2020”

#FlashFiction – “Not the Last”

Today my lovely friends at Swell Publications posted the following writing prompt on their Facebook page: “If you only had one day to live, what would you do with your time? I can’t decide whether to save the world from impending doom or go get froyo.” My story is not so much a “one dayContinue reading “#FlashFiction – “Not the Last””

My Author Photo Shoot!

So most of the photos I have of myself are connected to the local theatre productions I’ve done over the years. I’m usually wearing makeup and contact lenses. Which is all fine, but theatre!me is quite a different vibe to author!me. This year I met Stephanie, who is still in high-school but already has anContinue reading “My Author Photo Shoot!”

2020 Writing Goals – October Check-in

At the start of this year, some writer friends and I chose a word as the theme for the coming 12 months. Mine was LEARN. I’ve definitely been learning. And now we’re on the downhill run towards the end of the year. In some ways, it feels like the months have dragged on beyond belief, andContinue reading “2020 Writing Goals – October Check-in”

Snippet er… Sunday? – September 27, 2020

Yes, I’m leaving the graphic up even though it has the wrong day on it. Soon I’ll get back to regular Saturday posts. 😂 I got some lovely responses to my flash fiction on Wednesday, so thank you for that! Apart from flash fiction, I’ve spent the last week getting back into my edits andContinue reading “Snippet er… Sunday? – September 27, 2020”

#FlashFiction – “The Longer You Stay…”

Hello all. I know, I know, it’s been a month since I last posted anything here. Apparently my brain can only cope with one creative pursuit at a time and for a while, The Thornthwaite Inheritance: The Musical was taking up all my creative brain space. Doing an original musical was a new experience, andContinue reading “#FlashFiction – “The Longer You Stay…””

Snippet Saturday – August 29, 2020

Hi everyone! I know it’s been a month since I last updated here. I thought for a while that I was going to get back to my novel, but then I spent several weeks thinking about that and not having the energy to do anything about it. I had thought if I were only toContinue reading “Snippet Saturday – August 29, 2020”

Snippet Saturday – July 25, 2020

I’m scheduling this post because I’m running around a bit today – my birthday party is this afternoon! My birthday is actually tomorrow but I have a rehearsal for the musical I’m in… which will probably mean extra cake and stuff, and honestly, I love rehearsing… but also means there’s no opportunity to get togetherContinue reading “Snippet Saturday – July 25, 2020”
