First, and most important, it was wonderful to read in the weekend papers that the killer of Sunshine Coast schoolboy Daniel Morcombe was finally apprehended. Although this is not a happy ending obviously for his grieving family and friends, at least they have the consolation that justice will now be served. I followed this case along with many around Australia with interest and feel great pride in both the investigating officers, the public who supported the search and most of all – the amazing family who kept the search for Daniel going. A darling, beautiful boy – rest in peace, Daniel.
I’ve finally reached the 50,000 word mark on my Currawong book and so I can treat myself again. Hurray! Yes, it’s a really rough first draft but it’s there for me to work with. I also have a spot of good news from my agent which I shall post here as soon as I get the go-ahead.
For those who were curious about what I treated myself with last time I reached the 25000 word mark, this is it – a lovely book by Fleur Wood which combines cooking with some vintage-inspired images of super-cool people enjoying their food in style. It’s a lovely book to dip into and enjoy the images. This 50 000 mark, I shall have to treat myself with shoes.
Keep Inspired and Creative. Thank you for visiting me. xx
