Last weekend I was so honoured to be a part of Michael Whites book writing course. I was always the quiet kid in school but last weekend I asked 101 questions. It got to the point I had to hold myself back otherwise we wouldn't have got through the course in two days!
I never knew I had the ability to really write until I started this blog, I felt I could pour my emotions into my posts and it would just flow. It was my therapy, my way to vent.
Before I was introduced to Michael he asked my manager Deborah if I considered myself a writer? I whole heartedly responded with a no. I didn't have the confidence at the time to think I could ever achieve that title.
Since meeting with this amazing book guru I think I might have a chance at being a professional writer. I have learnt to take myself to a place that I am able to descriptively write about my sight, sound, touch and smell.
With all he has taught me I'm able to make my writing come alive. I couldn't do that before I met you Michael White, for that I thank you whole heartedly.
Watch this space for my book debut!! https://michaelwhite.com.au/real-book-guru/

Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger 10/10. Twelve-year-old Sophie Foster has a secret. She’s a Telepath—someone who hears the thoughts of everyone around her. It’s a talent she’s never known how to explain. My friend introduced this to me, but I honestly did not have any high hopes for the book, as the online reviews all said it was bad. When I started reading it, I was very pleasantly surprised! What I thought was more a children's chapter book was a pretty good YA novel. I'm proud to say that I am a member of the KOTLC fandom now and waiting for the newest book! -Ainsley
Wishing and wanting and wondering is part of being a writer. There is much about this journey that is so mysterious. Why do some books get picked up right away while others percolate for years? Why are some put in a drawer and don’t get published until an author has written three or four books more books? At the end of the writers conference today I was left wondering, what will my story be? When I got in the car to drive home I was reminded of this little stone that was gifted to me by a kind older woman. She told me to hold it if I felt nervous while pitching my novel query today. I did feel nervous but also ready for the next stage. Have you ever felt curious about your writing journey? Did you ever make a wish? Or take an unexpected turn on the path? I’d love to know 😍#writersjourney
Hello everyone. Recently, a book created by someone very close to me had been published. I had read this book, personally, and it is AMAZING! The author goes by J.W. Barlament and the title of the book is The Plight of a People, which is now available on Amazon Kindle for $2.99. I strongly recommend this book for a great read and also for lovers of epic fantasy! If you're interested and have any questions please let me know. 😊 And thank you for any support!
• Thank you all for the support. For allowing me to express my thoughts through words. I appreciate being able to be vulnerable, connecting to people, and reaching others through my poetry/my words.🙏🏾

Me being my short self and fitting into random nooks and crannies😇A Court Of Mist and Fury by @therealsjmaas, this is the #2 book in the ACOTAR series 😍
BOOK REVIEW//(No spoilers) UHHH! I love this book so much, I'm literally in awe at the fact that Sarah J. Mass can create such a good story line. I thought that A Court of Thorns and Roses was great, but this takes book writing to another level! The characters have grown even more and you truly learn who is 'good' and who is 'bad'. This book has just enough twists that it makes it interesting and not annoying. I also want to add that the characters' life stories, as well as how descriptive the emotions are, are so convincing and well thought out that it seems like Sarah J. Mass has actually been through these situations. Who knows, Sarah J. Mass could secretly be a faerie?
We've organised a few events outside our usual monthly meets, like this event with the wonderful @alisongoodmanauthor
We took a break after after our favourite venue closed but we're looking at what we can do for next year.
Are there any events that you'd like to see our group organise?
