Three Things 27.09.2017

NaNoWriMo WRITER FRIEND: Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year? ME: (without thinking) Yes. The next thing I knew, I was part of a National Novel Writing Month 2017 facebook group, had brainstormed a story outline, and reactivated my profile.  

Duly Noted

I’m off to Canberra on Sunday for the final day of Noted Festival, where I’ll be doing a reading for The Fearless Writing Project, spending all my money at the Independent Publishing Fair, and running a teen writing workshop about story structure.

#WriteEveryDayInMay 2017

One year ago, I set myself a challenge. Inspired by the Rock and Roll Writers Festival, The Lifted Brow’s experimental writing competition, and a pile of incredible YA novels, I decided to write 1000 words every single day throughout the month of May. 

Scrapshot – July/August 2016

Hightlights of the past two months have included: traveling to Sydney for Janos Jersch’s Shooter/Producer course at AFTRS, seeing Ghostbusters and Absolutely Fabulous at the cinema, a weekend in Melbourne for Glenn’s birthday (including lunch at The Cuckoo, and seeing the stage production of Matilda), catching up with hometown friends, live music from Josh Pyke and Sarah McLeod, receiving an ACRA nomination, going on the giant flying fox at Pennyroyal with Georgie, indulging myself at the Latrobe Chocolate Winterfest, and many more delights that I can’t quite remember off the top of my head.

Transitions

Last night, at roller derby training, I did my first transition. It took over half an hour of one-on-one practice with my incredibly patient coach (Thanks Thor!), but I got there – I safely and smoothly transitioned.

Blog-dentity Crisis.

In which I ramble about blogging and the meaning of life. A photo posted by Britt Aylen (@snapoutofbritt) on Aug 23, 2015 at 12:20am PDT Alright, how’s it going, alright?
