Falling off the Wagon

So it seems I’ve fallen off the blogging wagon. Considering it’s been over a month since I’ve posted, I suppose you could even say I was catapulted from the rickety wagon. In fact it feels a little like I crashed the darn thing. Life has been a bit hectic of late, both within my work and personal life. But I wont patronise you with excuses – instead I’ll offer up a (hopefully) placating summary of my last month:

  • Worked on final edits of Squish Rabbit, who is about to hop off to the printers
  • Embarked on an interstate move from cold and rainy Adelaide to cold and rainy Brisbane (why do I always take the weather with me?)
  • Volunteered at Brisbane’s CYA conference – for a more eloquent summary of the day than I could write, go visit Kathleen Noud
  • QWC featured Squish on the cover of their Writing Queensland magazine – you can download a desktop version of the image here
  • Attended Australia/NZs international SCBWI conference in Sydney (and got a little merry with all the lovely children’s writers/illustrators and publishers) – visit Chris Cheng’s blog for a great summary
  • Featured as guest blogger on Katrina Germain’s blog for a father’s day special in celebration of her delightful new picture book ‘My Dad Thinks He’s Funny
  • Missed out on weeks worth of sleep and then struggled in vain to catch up

There’s my attempt to resurrect the wagon of my blog. So am I forgiven?
