The internet is friend and foe to one and all. Search: ‘Writers festivals, Australia’. and just see how many appear. Its great that so much is available to the avid writer striving to be published. To make connections, learn from the best and to be able to ask the questions that plague us all. Now… which one will I choose? The ones close to home or do I venture further afield…or both? Why not both? I have placed my heart and sole into persuing the dream of being in print. Short stories, travel stories, sure thats fine, but the idea of having a page turning illustrated cover in hand is becoming a close reality.
Life has it’s twist and turns that it throws at you, a visit to family in Sydney and the humdrum of work have slowed things a little in this last week, but the illustrations still go on.
