Now, a little more about me and how I arrived here….
I recall the school library being a wonderland of discovery, and a great refuge to escape the noisy playground. The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Dr Seuss, Pollyanna, Charlotte’s Web, to name a few. My reading list grew and grew, as did my love for books.
Skip, skip……tra la la…….into …………
Motherhood inspired me back into reading and writing. Reading picture books again to my child, I remembered what I loved so much at school. BOOKS!
I enrolled into a six month TAFE course in Professional Writing – Writing for Children. I treasure those months of learning in a very supportive and creative environment.
I wrote across all genres, soon realising picture book writing was indeed more challenging than first thought. I recall Mem Fox telling her audience at a book launch to ‘Write with zest!’ Great advice. So I wrote that down and kept finding inspiring words and quotes to keep me motivated. This is now a daily habit.
So dear reader, how does writing or reading a great book make you feel in one word? Let me know what you think about my blog. I would love to hear from you.
Happy reading & writing!
