It's been a bit quiet at my desk lately, which is unusual for this time of year. It's been Book Week season here in Australia, and with it comes a normal flurry of activity and author visits etc. Unfortunately I've been unwell for the last couple of months and as a result have had to cancel all but one of my scheduled visits.
I hate cancelling author visits! Not just because I love interacting with children around bookish themes, but because I hate letting down the teaching staff and leaders who have put so much effort into planning ahead for these types of visits.
My creative output has also slowed down as a consequence of my ill health, which had been disappointing. But I'm plodding along slowly on a couple of priority projects, and am hoping for some answers and improved health in the meantime.

In high school I used to write what I'd call 'thinks' - little bits of writing about whatever topic or issue I was mulling over at the time. I still write these little pieces.
