Writing

For those who have always known me, you will be well versed in my love for writing.

Currently, I have my first book being published.

Bartholomew, an Australian native bird known as a Tawny Frogmouth, follows the story of a young fledgling who strives to live his dream.

Simple dreams

Once upon a time, a long time ago, I believed in complicated dreams.

Dreams large enough to fill a nation and to encompass the world.

Now, approaching 40, I have a new and novel strategy.

You see, I’ve many unfulfilled dreams and this both makes me empowered and sad at the same time.

My new strategy involves taking all my dreams and simplifying them.

This means I’m busy boiling them down to the necessary steps that make up each dream.

And maybe, in the next 40 years, I’ll live all of them, with room for more.

Is simplifying dreams a better strategy than the one you’re using now?

How can simplifying your dreams make them more attainable?

Nanowrimo

Just to keep you updated, I’m participating in Nanowrimo, sort of.

My aim is to complete the initial draft of a book I’m working on.

At the moment it looks like it will become a Chapter Book for young ish children. The title at the moment, is The Festival, and it is all about a boy who steals and a man whose profession is lost. It is about how they change each other’s lives, and perhaps, learn from one from the other.

At the Illustrator’s is another book I’ve already written, called “Bartholemew.” This book, is aimed at young children, who may need pictures to enjoy as well as a story line. This book too, is about teaching values, and the importance of believing in oneself.

I’ll continue to update you as I go along.
