Sunday is the next WriteSpace Retreat – the forecast is for cold and wet weather, perfect writing conditions.
I’ve baked the ginger kisses, packed the Gewurzhaus tea and the specialty blend coffee, the fruit loaves will be baked tomorrow and I’ll be making a big pot of soup. We’re ready for another productive day.
As well as looking after Melbourne writers I have a series on my personal blog where I meet writers in cafes (or convents or whisky bars…). It’s called ‘Words Out: plotting Melbourne’s future literary map’ and my latest, and very entertaining, conversation was with Paddy O’Reilly. It happened to be on the day her latest collection of short stories was released, so I’ve added that to the reading collection for my WriteSpace Retreat writers.
