READING V WRITING
When I’m not having an internal war over my current word count and lack of progress on the writing front, I can usually be found reading. Scrap that, always found to be reading. I must say it’s turned into a little bit of an obsession in recent years. I have often wondered whether I may not cook so many ‘cajun’ style meals if I’d just put down the book whilst I’m using hot appliances. You can imagine my utter delight when I discovered that the wonderfully talented Kerry Greenwood has produced yet another Phryne Fisher murder mystery masterpiece. I can’t really claim that, having not read read it yet can I? Though I have every confidence that it will be utterly amazing, as how could Phryne ever be anything other than sublime?
I’ve recently read Kimberley Freeman’s (aka Kim Wilkins) new novel, Lighthouse Bay, which gave me a top up on Australian history. I have to admit I’m a bit of an admirer of Kim Wilkins, her work in the writing industry is nothing short of inspiring. After a failed attempt at attending one of her workshops earlier in the year, I’m hopeful that one day I’ll get there and hopefully be all inspired to write like a devil.
My current read is new author Courtney Collins’ book The Burial. The main character of this book, female bushranger Jessie Hickman, was of particular interest to me. I’m only really in the early stages yet, but its seems to have a unique style, which I’ve found quite a nice change really. It’s easy to find a style that you like and stick to it rather then expand your interest. I’m looking forward to hearing her speak later in October.
