it's been a long time since I took care of my blog, a lifetime has come and gone in a year
and I'm well again and waving from a May Gibbs Literature trust fellowship at Rothbury on Ann
in Brisbane. What a gift of time in my career and life when I need it most.
I have several writing projects to juggle and with the perspective of a year's illness I am more
discerning/practical/ruthless and begin to realise how much I want to write and create.
I have had a year of no writing and no reading. I wasn't well enough to do either of these important things, but armed with a suitcase of bits and pieces of manuscripts I am forging ahead and ripping to shreds those bits of stories I have held onto for years and I just don't think they will work anymore.
and entering competitions, just like I used to do when I first entered the writing arena.
It gives me purpose, a sense of satisfaction.

Thanks May Gibbs Literature trust and Judith Russell.
