Today was a huge day for me. I got up really early and wrote 4,000 words. Being a lovely morning, I had my windows open and was treated to beautiful choral music from the church next door.
I abandoned the computer to have morning tea with my lovely niece, Emma who had travelled all the way from Byron Bay to see me.
Next on the agenda was the May Gibbs Literature Trust’s High Tea. It was a fabulous event. So many friendly faces, great food and wonderful chatter. I could go on about the fun, festivities, the venue etc, but I thought I’d let the pictures speak for themselves, so I’ve inserted them in a very disorderly manner at the end of this post.
Thanks to the caterers, the library, the bookseller and of course to Judith Russell and her brother Murray and all the wonderful volunteers who made it such a great day.
Thanks also to my Brisbane friends and colleagues from the writing community who came along to show their support; Michael Gerard Bauer, Sheryl Gwyther, Julie Nickerson, Karen Collum and Lynn Priestley:-)
After the High Tea it was out for dinner with my good writerly friend, Julie Nickerson – a great way to finish off an amazing day.
I’m happy to report that I have now written 15,000 words, and am considering the possibility that I might get my first draft written before I leave Brisbane.
And now, after a huge day and fiddling around for ages trying to get the pics onto this post, I’m off to bed:-)
