It's been one of those weeks...you know the ones. They're massive, they're messy, they're the get through it one day at a time type. Everything seems to skid out of control and events move faster than you can keep up with.
But that also means that wonderful things are happening. It's been such a wonderful week, for both me as an author and the tutoring and literacy work I do with local students. The Lit Factory creative writing competition is heating up, and the Creative Writing Course that I am co-hosting with Jessica Davidson is now THIS MONTH. Crazy! Any Bribie locals or those who can get here, I'd encourage you to get on board with this one. It's going to be a cracker.
I had some wonderful kiddies come and pose for me for the local paper...unfortunately, most of my students were doing their normal Wednesday afternoon routines (some are unfortunately ill too) and couldn't make it to the shoot on very short notice, but I know they'd be just as excited as these guys were if they could have been there.
Friday morning started with a text my from Dad, pointing out my mug in the top left corner of the local newspaper. I was really happy to see the enthusiasm from the local paper about what we do with the Lit Factory, and to welcome a new tutor into the Lit Factory network in the same week. We have a trifecta of announcements, but I'm saving the third for a few days while I get my ducks all lined up.
In the meantime, I'm planning on enjoying some writing time this weekend - I need my happy place. Can anyone order in some rain for me? That would be wonderful! Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful days out there: may you be spoiled with all the socks and jocks your loved ones can supply!
