In other news.
With the Emerging Writers’ Festival in full swing this week, I thought I’d give myself a few props for having the guts to stand up last Sunday and read as part of their Speakers’ Corner event. They managed to squeeze me in at the last mintue and despite developing a rather large rash on my neck and feeling well out of my comfort zone things did not go too badly at all.
I will be heading to the Melbourne Town Hall this weekend to soak up some of the festivals panels, (I am especially looking forward to ‘The unspoken creative writing’ session with Tom Cho, and Chris Currie talking about his blog Furious Horses), before drinking tea (or whiskey) with my Glaswegian grandfather on the Sunday afternoon.
Also, Ruby Murray has just won the 2009 Alan Marshall Short Story competition. Congratulations kid! You continue to prove yourself a star in every way.
Sean is the spoken word cowboy, very cool. Check it out.
Note to self. Eating bread and honey at the same time as blogging is a bad idea. Sticky stuff.
