Turn your short stories into a novel!
Thanks for this wonderful tip, Libby!
State Library of New South Wales Sydney
I had a five minute spot last Wednesday at the Society of Women Writers monthly lunch meeting at the State Library of NSW in Sydney. I was given the opportunity to stand up in front of a microphone and speak about my two books. It was a chance to confront my fear of public speaking and tell everyone ‘The Crystal Ballroom’ (Ginninderra Press) had been launched the previous week in Melbourne. I’d only spoken in public twice before, at the two launches. It was a very scary experience. Apparently, most of us fear speaking in front of an audience more than death. So, even though I appeared confident, my hands kept up their shaking for some time after I sat down again. But very pleased with myself for doing it. Those more experienced than me tell me it gets easier every time.

Husband is getting medical tests. I have the new job, teaching study and test-taking skills to medical students. Too much happened at the same time, and I have been wiped out for the past several weeks. Same old stuff! 😉 Have your new book, but haven’t had time to read it yet. Soon! 😊
congratulations on the new job. sounds good. hope hubby will be okay. fingers crossed all round.
