Yes I've been away teaching and travelling. All great consumers of writing time but what benefits in ideas and a chance to observe and learn.(As well as catch up with one part of my lovely family.)
I particularly loved seeing specimens of the bottle tree- how amazing!
As well as a chance to indulge in a passion I've never lost - looking for little beach treasures and lately sea glass is top of the list.
A few lines written in my note book, various short poems all written for a collaboration project with my daughter Tamara for the Bendigo Writers' festival coming up soon, were the main pieces written.
A meeting with my editor and publisher has given me more direction also in the re-writing of two manuscripts. Now to re-establish writing routines.
How do you manage to make writing, creating a priority in your life?
