I spent my Saturday morning in a really lovely, relaxing and uplifting way.
And no, it wasn’t just because I ate breakfast on the couch (I know it’s a day off when my butt is firmly planted there as I eat my toast), and no, it wasn’t because I was in my PJs ’til past midday…
But I was in my PJs past midday, because I got majorly distracted at 11am.
I’ve done 5 online courses now with The Australian Writers’ Centre. It is truly an addictive thing if you love the craft of writing, and seriously, I can see myself doing more of them… at some point in the future.
For anyone that loves to write and wants to make it part of their work, even if you live outside of Australia, the AWC is a tremendous resource, I know.
Go to https://www.writerscentre.com.au/ for more info.
And at the moment, I think their online Zoom chats with esteemed writerly professionals are just awesome.
They have been running for a while now during iso, and the topic for this morning’s one was of utmost interest to me.
AWC founder Valerie Khoo was talking to a children’s and YA literary agent!
YA! That’s my genre. 😉
I accidentally stumbled across the Zoom chat reminder, and then started to listen… and then couldn’t put down my phone. I even asked a question about what trend publisher’s are looking for at the moment in YA, and along with getting my question answered, I walked away with so much information, tips and people to look up and read more on.
Most of all, I walked away with so much inspiration. It gave me purpose and hope and light again.
It’s a long road ahead, and it requires a heap of work. But at the same time, this morning’s Zoom chat filled me with as much excitement as it did focus, and I really feel I am on the right track.
A great frame of mind to start your morning? I’m definitely grateful for that.
