Insecure Writers and Upcoming Releases

Today is the Insecure Writers Support Group post. Each month we post about writing related things that we feel insecure about. This month I've felt more busy than insecure, as I have on my plate:

  • Organising a Writers Retreat - a whole weekend of writing workshops in a gorgeous rainforest setting (for the curious: http://www.rainforestwritingretreat.com.au).
  • Presenting author talks - I've been invited to schools and organisations to talk about writing
  • Continuing my children's writing workshops.
  • Teaching. I've put in my application to teach again this year.
  • Learning. I'm undertaking my Masters in Writing through Central Queensland Uni, mostly I'll be doing research and writing a historical novel.
  • Finishing and releasing my children's novels. I'm writing The Invisible Kid, editing An Accidental Mystery and finishing off Waracknabeal Kids.
Lots on! But I just take it one small bite at a time and I'll get through. Oh, and I should add to that list, releasing my next novel Undead Kev. Finally all ready to go to the printers! Here's a sneak at the cover:

  7. Goodness...I love all you do for the kids and for other writers. I've been watching you and have found it difficult to keep up. I can imagine what it's like as the one doing it!

    You rock. You really do. You actually boulder, you rock so much. Hugs.

  10. Congratulations on the new book, and I like the cover too! I'm envious about the writer's retreat; I've always wanted to go on one but I don't have the money yet. Someday, though...
