Hey Mum, I Love You and Writing-life days
Yesterday was one of those emotionally high and low writing-life days. Wonderful to be looking at ‘almost-finished’ artwork for a 2015 book; devastating to learn that a book I’d been researching and working ‘on-the-inside’ for months, is already being done by someone else; and exciting and slightly perplexing to learn that ‘Hey Mum, I Love You’ has sold out of the first print run – perplexing because now we are all scrambling to find enough copies for the launch on May 3!
Today I am ordering the launch cake from the wonderful crew at the Greensborough Cake Decorating Centre – ‘Can they make a pig?’, writing an important proposal, while a fresh, new story is knocking on my head. We are so lucky to be creators and captured by the world of writing for children.
