'Reading! Reading! Reading!'

It has been a while since I wrote anything tangible for this blog! I am finding this year to be a bit overwhelming, but I think I am gaining momentum and can now move forward enough to finish what work I need to get done.

I've passed the 'feeling sorry for me' stage and now I have a second wind!
At this very moment I have been reading, reading and reading more! I have set myself a task to read as much as I can and hopefully gain as much knowledge about this writing caper as I can.

It helps to be a volunteer book reviewer who gets free books to read and write about.
I am excited to say that although it is an unpaid job, I am looking forward to having the chance to extend my writing abilities and to gain some valuable experience that can only benefit my writing career.
I found it to be a wonderful opportunity that I could not pass up and combined with my Uni workload and writing my novel, my life is now very busy (Not that it wasn't busy before!).

The Ballarat Writers Festival  (Saturday 3 September) was an inspiration for me to keep forging ahead and I look forward to the day when I may be lucky to be paid for what I love to do!

What is more important to me now is that I keep reading and keep writing and hopefully someone may see what I do and like it.
So back to reading! I must now read the final eight chapters of my first gig and then sit down and write two-hundred words! I do not always say that I am happy to sit at my computer; but 'Woo Hoo' I am!

Happy Reading!
