So the next time I’m in Brisbane I’m going to CORNER this lady – she is bloody lovely. Aside from that obvious attraction, I’m hoping some of her writing attributes might rub off on me. She is highly organised, uses time wisely, can juggle many balls, and I wouldn’t mind examining her brain for the component that helps […]
How was your week? I found this on my feed somewhere, I think, but when I looked back I couldn’t find it again, so basically what I’m saying is if you know you shared it with me, I’m sorry but you get no credit today. The author, Rufi Thorpe, gets heaps good credit, though (I don’t know […]
That looks very codey and mysterious, doesn’t it? So, I have been tagged to do this by the lovely Sandy Fussell, who will be doing a Where the Magic Happens post later in the year (one that made me teary, no less), but who also does a fantastic wrap up of the weekly web activities of […]
I love the way Rebecca Lim’s mind works. I also love her work ethic. Sixteen books, y’all. Sixteen! And in exactly twelve days time there’ll be one more when Afterlight comes out in Oz.

Is on SBS On Demand, so you can watch it for free. It’s not perfect, but that made me love it all the more. Thomas Middleditch, as lead, is just charming. It’s a slow grower, but it’s funny, and some of the sub plots are Alice-down-the-rabbit-hole-WTF-whoa, which I always kind of like. I only found it […]
If you’re making things, you might find this interesting. I wrote to Chris after I’d watched it to tell him how it had helped me and I got a lovely email back in response (wasn’t expecting one, I really did just want him to know, but it was a nice surprise, that’s for sure). (I should […]
