Dreams come true in New York City and for me, that was visiting the iconic Strand Bookstore!

Apologies for the average photos, as you can probably tell we were caught up in some cold weather and taking these photos was really hard with frozen fingers!

Welcome to my super random Halloween post!

I have always wanted to carve a pumpkin. It’s been a bucket list goal for me but I have never had a chance to actually do it. Usually, I end up working Halloween or something else comes up. Halloween is really not that big a deal in Australia. There are definitely people who celebrate it and try to go trick or treating but it’s not as big a holiday here as it is in America.

I am working this Halloween, but  I had a whole weekend off work and so I decided to go and pick up a pumpkin, because why not?

Does where we write affect how we write?

I personally feel like the answer is a big yes, but it’s not just about where we write.

Writers are creatures of habit and it’s very common for writers to have rituals that help them get the job done. Some people are night owls and write their best work in the dark. Other people can only write after they’ve had a wine, coffee or tea. There are millions of variations on writing rituals, it really is about the person and what works for them.

Hey guys! I’m here today to have a quick chat about an amazing Melbourne festival that’s on at this very moment!

The Emerging Writers’ Festival is an incredible opportunity for young writers to immerse themselves in the world of books! The EWF offers heaps of fun and interesting masterclasses, panels and other events that are so inspiring to be a part of. It’s on right now and goes until the 23rd of June!This year I actually decided to volunteer at the EWF this year. It was a great decision and I’d REALLY recommend it to anyone who wants to work in the book industry in any way because it’s a great chance to make connections and meet authors, publishers and other bookish friends!
