It's ridiculous how quickly the months seem to pass, and then I realise I've been neglecting my website AGAIN.
I think I did manage to make it back here sooner than a whole year had passed, but not by much.
While I was busy elsewhere I was:
Where does writing fit into all this? I think we've all heard the saying that there's a time to reap and a time to sow; which seems apt, considering my interest in gardening and harvesting edible produce to use in my cooking experiments.
I've been sowing. I've been thinking about my characters and stories while I tend to other things. Like work and study. I've been daydreaming and plotting and reflecting. Some of my writing friends might call it tuning into the muse. Others think of it as refilling the creative well. I do think of it as sowing the seeds of future stories. I've been tending more than one garden, and I hope to soon have some strange and wondrous fruit.
It's a little shameful, but I haven't added anything to the news page for 12 months. But does that mean nothing much has happened?
In that time I have:
What will the next year bring? Hopefully I can check back in here long before that!
You'd think I'd be used to it by now but the way time passes so fast can still catch me by surprise. It's so easy to carry on about your day-to-day activities and then suddenly another month is almost over, and we are easing by the half-way point in another year.
Yikes! Time to take stock, have a look at what I've achieved and make some plans for the next six months.
To mark the occasion, here is a photo from a recent trip to Katoomba in the Blue Mountains, NSW, It already seems like too long ago!
Here we are! All fresh and shiny with a new author webpage and blog. Out with the old and in with the new.
And surely everyone does love a makeover. Don't we all wish, too that there could be a do-over as easily? Hmm, that gives me an idea for a story... back later!
