There’s something about a new year. It holds promise. You open up that new diary and marvel at all those little squares just waiting to be filled.
And I’ve already started filling them!
Among the birthdays and summer catch-ups there’s the KidLitVic writers conference in Melbourne which I have bought my ticket for. So. Ex. Cited. It makes me feel like a real writer! I can’t wait to meet other writers and to hear what the publishers and people in the know have to say.
January in Australia brings heat, fire and flood but it also brings the smell of gum leaves in the north wind, blushing tomatoes and nodding daisies. It’s easy to feel positive about 2016 when there’s such a nice opening number.
I hope your, and your loved ones, year is as wonderful as ours will be.
