Last week was massive. I’d been sweating on feedback from my agent on my current manuscript and was greatly relieved when her verdict came through as a big thumbs up. First hurdle crossed! I’ve subsequently made a few minor edits and that manuscript is now ready for market.
The other welcome news to filter through was that there’s some interest in Game as Ned in America, which is fantastic.
I was also approached about speaking at a Centre for Youth Literature event in 2009, which I’m greatly looking forward to. I have long thought Melbourne is blessed to have the Centre, along with its super website insideadog – both of which must have added punch to our city’s successful bid to become a UNESCO City of Literature.
Throw in my father’s birthday, booking Coldplay tickets, cycling approximately 100 kilometres, two School Council-related meetings, catching the latest James Bond flick, and my editing job, and it all made for an action-packed week.
Can’t wait to see what this week brings…
