This year-long Friday celebrations series is my way of documenting the good things that have passed my way during the week and being mindful of these, and more.

Friday Celebrations 3

I took this photo the other day at the kids’ school. I’m loving all the green that’s starting to appear around the place! It’s so cheery.

What am I celebrating this week?

  • The biggest celebration is sending off my finished novel manuscript! Writing it has been quite a process, stop-start over the past three years, and I admit some tears have been shed over time, but it’s all worth it.
  • Our NAPLAN (link points back to my thoughts about it last year) results were released and the kids did great.
  • I finished my workshop that I’m going to present at the Melbourne Writers Festival tomorrow.
  • I have begun development of two more book projects.
  • I’m closer to announcing the date I’ll be launching this:

Make sure you get on the list to find out first.

  • The trailer for Victor Frankenstein was released this week. Now, let the record state that I adore James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe. But this… left me disappointed. The YouTube comments are rather lukewarm too. (The exception being for fans of the Penny Dreadful TV series. I can see their point.) So this celebration is more to do with the first 20 seconds of the clip itself and the adorable introduction.
