This blog is about writing as an Aussie, which is known universally as ‘Down Under’. Everything is backwards or upside down when contrasted with the Northern Hemisphere – particularly the weather! While my Northern American and European friends are celebrating the first snowfalls of the season, we are supposed to be entering summer. I say supposed, as it’s been anything but summery here – steady rain for the past two days and apparently three to come. There have been a few jokes around the place about needing to build an ark. The rain, however, is most welcome, as it’s a sign our decade-long drought has finally broken.
Having the unseasonally cool weather and lots of rain has been handy – it’s put me in the mood for MiCrow’s latest offering: MiCrow Winter 2010 – Into the Void. Have a read and check out the cool artwork. You will even find my first published images and a line drawing by me. Enjoy.
In the meantime, Ticonderoga Press extended the Dead Red Heart submission deadline to 8 December. I’m using that time to really bash my story into shape, with the assistance of a girl’s best editor, the fabulous Ms Jodi Cleghorn.
