Monthly Recap: December 2015

I'm writing this month's recap from Birmingham, UK. It's cold and windy outside - very different to the Christmas weather I'm used to. But it's great, more Christmassy really - especially when the fires are going and you're decorating two Christmas trees in a week with a mug of mulled wine in hand... But I digres...

Monthly Recap: November 2015

Well, November is certainly up there with the craziest months of the year. I have no idea how I've even got the energy to tackle putting this into a post, but here we go... November saw the launch of Kindling Volume II, developments on the novel front, new freelance clients, multiple friends coming back from ...

Monthly Recap: October 2015

So it's three weeks until the Kindling II launch, four weeks until I fly off to the UK and then not long at all after that - it'll be Christmas! Is it just me, or has 2015 been the fastest year ever? As we reach the end of October, I feel like I've got a lot to tell you, but knowing what's on the horizon for ...

Monthly Recap: September 2015

Can you believe it's the end of September already? Where did the last nine months go, seriously? Well, it's been a mammoth month for me, with developments on both the book and the Writer's Edit fronts. After the challenges of the last two months, I definitely needed to feel as though I was moving forward for a change. ...

Monthly Recap: August 2015

August has been another slow burning month. It's that time of year where there's so much in the works but seeing the results are a little way off yet. Unfortunately for me, many of my projects are long term ones - books like Kindling II and Red Hands aren't things that happen in a matter of weeks, and Writer's Edit ...

Monthly Recap: July 2015

For the past week, I've been debating with myself just how honest I'm going to be in this month's recap. On one hand - there's definitely such a thing as 'the overshare' on blogs, and I don't want to submit readers (whoever you are) to that. But on the other hand, it would feel dishonest to paint my 'writer's life' as ...

Monthly Recap: June 2015

It's Monday again, and the weekend flew by seemingly just as fast as the whole of June did. Seriously, where have the last four weeks gone? They've been a blur of dreaming up a Writer's Edit office (no, that's not a reality... not yet anyway), ploughing through Kindling Volume II submissions and prepping for July's ...

Monthly Recap: May 2015

It feels like I need a month just to write this recap! At the end of last month's wrap-up, I said May was going to be massive. As I sit down to write this post, I'm not sure 'massive' does it justice. May has seen the Sydney Writers' Festival come to town, a surge in Kindling II submissions, new additions to the ...

Monthly Recap: April 2015

April was one of those months where there was a lot going on behind-the-scenes, but we haven't quite seen the results yet. There's been settling into new jobs, freelancing, talking with publishers, training new writers, shortlisting for Kindling Volume II and tonnes more... My Book: Currently, Red Hands is still ...

Monthly Recap: March 2015

I'm going to end up saying this every time but - the last 30 days have been so busy! With my father's birthday, my parents' 25th wedding anniversary, my sister's 21st and cousins' combined 30th and 40th - it's a wonder I got anything done between all the family commitments! But get things done I did... My Book: ...
