Having just finished the last edit of Red Dust and farming, kids and just ‘life’ not allowing a lot of time for writing at home, I picked up my laptop and headed to town.
Plonking down at a cafe on the Esperance Bay foreshore I started to focus heavily on Blue Skies for the first time in about three months.
Re-acquainting myself with my main character, Amanda, and her world of “Kyleena” (the family farm), I failed to notice the beauty that was surrounding me that day, until I finished the part I was working on and ordered my second cappuccino!
The sea was flat, the yachts that were moored were bobbing gently and there were people swimming and running through the sea and up and down the beach.
How lucky I am to live in such an inspiring, beautiful place.
