It seemed like a farewell to #whadjuk land in #fremantle today. This is a favourite spot of mine - the staff have never failed to make my life easier whenever I have come here and these days I really value that.  I am moving away soon. It will be a hectic February partly due to that. Fremantle is my Australian home town. Whadjuk/Nyoongar people have always been welcoming to me. This is where I got citizenship. This is where Mayor Brad Pettit will run you over with his bike if you are walking…

Went across to #leederville today to Oxford St Books to grab hold of a new #motto #notebook for my #bulletjournal.  I like these because they are dotted because they can pack a lot in and because they are small enough for a handbag. This is my third one so far. @mooney.jessica.rai picked out my new one - the yellow and white - saying to start something wonderful for me. The blue one says live your wild dreams and I have been using it since July. Each one generally takes about six months or…

Insomnia Australian Summer 2018.  Sometimes I can't sleep. Work ideas run through my head. Or the temperature is too off kilter. Or my body just won't switch over.  Tonight it is 17 degrees overnight in Perth and the electric blanket is on but I am sick. It's a sore throat and sinus headache like thing rendering me quieter than usual. The kind of sore throat where the roof of your mouth is constantly dry and you discover you never knew how much you depended on that part of your mouth to form…

So last night I got woken up by my sister yelling that @mandysillybob had won the The Fairway Literary Award in English for The Other One at the @gallelitfest   I have rabbitted on about this book and others and perhaps that seems strange to you but here is the thing.  I am an author too. I know how important it is to have a cheering squad and to have support and people who believe in your work. And I am an editor and if I have edited your work then you can be sure that that final version…

Notice anything strange? I am dealing with hackers at the moment on my website.  Thankfully I never ask for any personal info or store it on my server space and this is relatively minor because you can still read and use my website as you normally would. If you do visit my site do not click on any strange links in the headers (links in the posts and sidebars are functioning normally). It should not be able to infect your computer or browser - this is so far merely cosmetic.  I felt I should…

Life is kind of full of online meetings and skype calls at the moment. Everyone in Australia is back at work and I am rushing to keep up working from here as a #digitalnomad . I had great fun speaking to the @australianygs yesterday bar all the technical issues. Shout out to @raiaofsunshine Jasmina Marianne and @meadow.argus my fellow panellists and thanks to the collective/committee/crew for organising it.  Also Happy Thai Pongal to everyone celebrating!  #writeratwork #writer #speaker…

Working on the new book for @ksp_writers_centre and @varunawritershouse Foundation Fellowship and thought this would be a good book to pick up for research. Have no idea yet if it will be any good or not. I am looking for something that gives me a good idea of how the police work in Sri Lanka.  If you know of any other books that wouls be good for research let me know. #srilankanauthors #srilankanwriters  I talked a bit today about what I have done this week for the #foundationfellowship and…

Attempting to #brainstorm in the #bulletjournal #bujo for 2018 in order to organise myself work wise. I think my brain has wandered off a bit though.  I use Compendium's Motto series of notebooks dotted and small. They last about six months. It is time for a new one so i will close this one out with January and start the next with February.  I will hopefully put together a post on my #bujoideas #bujosetup #bujosetup2018 #bujogoals #bujogram #bujoindex #bujojunkies and show you pics soon.  I…

#tbthursday #tbt #auspol While politicians lie to you about the extent and existence of African Australian crime in Australia I would like you to remember something: a few people don't represent an entire group and you cannot discriminate against people based on race like this. It is hateful it is illegal and even politicians and media organisations are not immune if someone brings the Racial Discrimination Act down on their heads.  And I wanted to share this. This wonderful book of short…

Australia passed legalisation of same sex marriage rights today. Am celebrating at The Court. It feels like the badge should come off but we still have a fight for equal rights for everyone in all sorts of contexts. There are indigenous rights and refugee rights to consider and fight and legislate for. So celebration tonight keep the fight going tomorrow.  #lgbtqia #pride #intersectionality #equalrights #lovewins #samesexmarriage #humanrights #indigenousrights #treaty…
