New Blog Post: Living in Asia, every day I am reminded of the importance of community. At harvest time I watched as my local neighborhood came together every da...y to help each other with the laborious process of sun drying freshly harvested rice on large tarpaulins spread out on shared roads and bike paths. It made me think that as writers, we too can benefit from coming together to harvest the rewards of our hard work collectively. In Bali for a week we will do both. We will follow our own inner journeys and we'll spend time with our own community to share, support and inspire each other.
This can apply to any creative venture you do.
This sounds interesting

Welcome to Chasing the Rainbow - the first in a three part vlog about the writing process of my first novel, 'A Wild Ride to Love', where a reluctant undercover... agent falls in love with the bikie leader she was sent to bring to justice.
It's intriguing where that initial spark of an idea comes from. It hits you out of nowhere and a story is born. What triggered your inspiration for what you have written, or are writing? Drop me a line I would love to hear from you. Writers minds are a fascinating place.

Good memories of ABC Open days blogging in the https://open.abc.net.au/explore/3059 and journeys in blogging: http://www.writingqueensland.com.au/blogging-the-north/ - June
Don't forget that due to the Federal Election next Saturday our meeting date has been put back a week. July 9th Healthy Harvest Café Mission Beach - see you then.
PS The homework for this month is to write 500 words [or less] about the rivets in the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Don't forget you are 'creative' writers - get to it.
Looking forward to workshops with Kate in October - can't wait
