What Have I Been Doing?
We headed to the beautiful Mid North of South Australia and stayed a night in Quorn then two nights at the Melrose Campground. Cannot recommend this place enough. It was October long weekend so every man and his dog as well as his bike were there but we were still able to find our own patch of trees to pitch a tent. I had a massive burst of inspiration while we were there and had characters for a whole new book streaming into my head.
I attended my lovely SARA (South Australian Romance Authors) Group and discussed sagging middles. Of the story kind of course! I get so much information from this group, it only highlights further to me the need to have a local community as well as an online community.
We did the Halloween thing. I gotta say this event has really grown on me. I started off saying, no of course we’re not going trick or treating, that only happens in America! And have quickly moved to embracing it fully. There’s something about seeing a ninety year old woman waiting outside her house with a big smile and a bowl full of goodies that makes you think, “Wow, if she gets a kick out of this then so am I!” So, we made puff pastry pumpkins, witch finger biscuits and headed out for a picnic followed by trick or treating. Can’t wait for next year!
What’s coming up next month?
- Is November the official open of Christmas? I think it’s going to have to be. I’m getting so excited this year and I don’t know why!
Anyone got anything exciting coming up? Or even something not exciting coming up?
Drop me a line and let me know!
