I’ve been writing some little stories here and there in between working on my bigger project for younger readers and settling back into Brisbane life. I’m especially excited to be a part of Brisbane-based publisher Tiny Owl Workshop’s upcoming Pillow Fight! project, which will see my short piece, A Dragon Story, and other great works from local writers printed up on pillows for the Brisbane Writers Festival in September.
I also wrote a short piece about my super super cool dog Buddy for Illoscript, an emerging online arena for telling the fun stories you’d share with your friends over Sunday catch-up coffee/drinks. The great thing about Illoscript is they team your story with an illustrator who’ll draw a custom illustration for it. I love the picture Debs Lim did of Buddy wearing festival sunglasses and a bow tie, though I hesitated to show it to Buddy because he already thinks he’s cool enough.
Plus I have a story featured in the Summer issue of Canadian online pub Origami Journal.
Now it’s back to my YA work-in-progress, watching this, and listening to a lot of pop music.
