I hear the Brisbane Writers Festival is coming up again soon. Some of the 'Fringe' events look like fun. I think I'll go along to a few.
My own writing is still plodding along. A get a bit cagey about telling people about what I'm working on until it's almost finished and I'm at the revising stage. However, I can tell you it's a dark fantasy/erotic romance, specifically a 'were' story (not werewolves, were-something else), and it's gotten a little stranger than I meant it to be. That could be a good thing, I can't tell yet. I'm still trying to think up a title. Sometimes those don't come to me until after I'm finished. Updates to follow once it's a bit more polished.
