Writing and editing and critting

Why am I writing yet more thoughts on this? Because I’ve got another short story in for publication. This one I had no time so I ignored my rules and submitted without having it edited. This is something I deeply regret, truly. Although they’re still publishing it and sent it back to me with some structural edits. […]

Writing, and writing, and writing…

It’s another of those articles because I haven’t the brain space to find something about books and what other people are writing. It’s all about me and my degree today. I’m now one third of the way through my Bachelor of Arts in Professional and Creative Writing. As they say, practice makes perfect, although in […]

I bin writting

I feel almost like a real writer this week. I’ve been doing lots of writing for uni and for the magazine, Wordly, put out by Deakin Writers. Don’t get me wrong, I need to do lots of writing this trimester, there’s good reason there. Let me ramble for yet another Friday and talk about what I’m studying […]

It ain’t here

Last night was the launch of the magazine that has my short story. I know you’ve been waiting and waiting but there isn’t an online version of it and I’ve been asked not to share it until after the next magazine comes out. In three months time after the launch of the next issue I’l be able […]

Musings

I’ve been doing a lot of musings on my blog on Fridays lately and not a lot of useful stuff, for that, I apologise. It is really only because I get to Friday and my brain has shut down. I’ve been between study trimesters and logically I should have plenty of time to do things […]

Things are crook in Tallarook

This is a little article I wrote a few weeks ago about some issues I was having with getting some assignments done on time. I’m naming and shaming because it’s easier that way. Things are crook in Tallarook, the saying goes, but things are much crooker in my house. Wednesday 7th December we lost the […]

Haunted Zine Launch

You know those times when you neglect to take your own advice? That’s me, today. I tell everyone when they’re blogging to make a schedule and stick to it but today I completely forgot about it and so I’m running slightly late. It’s not the end of the world, but it is rather annoying. Last week I […]

What do uni and the Book Expo have in common?

It’s the pointy end of the trimester, I’ve one week of classes left and then all assignments must be in the following week. One of my four assignments is almost done while the others are in moderate stages of research and just beginning. The due date for the last one is the 9th October. Just one minor […]

Some thoughts on 8 Mile and rapping

I had to read the script for this movie for uni a couple of weeks ago. All I knew was that it was about rapping and that Eminem was in it. It took me till half way through it before I was hooked big time. I’d never read a script before and was fascinated and intrigued […]

Cogitations about uni

One thing I’m really grateful about with uni is that they write every important thing down for us. Every single date, time, piece of information about assignments and lots more besides. It then becomes out task to get it right, read everything and make sure we get things in on time. Sure we get reminders in […]
