This was the last pic taken with my camera, which then decided to utter its last gasp.
Of course, if I’m honest, I knew things had gone awry way before then. It was actually around the time the air conditioner stopped working at my accommodation, and my restless night was explained by a room temp of 28 degrees C.
Fortunately, all these things were material and could be remedied – a new camera and a canny air con technician soon had things back on track.
And in fact, I had a lovely morning at the art gallery and the State Library and was treated to a tour of the Queensland Writers’ Centre.
I returned to my apartment to the great news that many of my writerly friends had been awarded in the 2010 CBCA Notables and Shortlistings. Congratulations to all the worthy winners. The full results can be viewed at http://cbca.org.au
It was also an exciting day for me because I have been appointed the new Kid’s book blogger at Boomerang Books, and you can check out my first post at http://content.boomerangbooks.com.au/kids-book-capers-blog/
Okay, so I haven’t reached my 5,000 word goal today, but the night is still young:-)
Glen was right, life can be a lot harder than not, but that’s what makes the successes all the more sweet.
