Cold nights, cool days, and we're all waiting for summer!
I sent away the "writing assignment" last week, so it was back to the writing desk...and a Treacle Week for writing. It's not that the scenes aren't planned, far from it, it's just that one is inclined to drag, and I've tried several starts to find what works. Usually this means the scene is wrong, but I've just worked out a better start that builds the "right" amount of tension. Excellent! The second scene is improving - if only I had more hours to work on it! And with two training sessions (after work) per week for the next 2 more weeks - that sure cuts into my writing time.
A fabulous set of science "demos" (demonstrations) at a local school - thanks Sam and the Northern Hub group.
Last week I joined the MtBS Bush Action Team removing weeds along the summit path. A great group of people, and the depleted weed numbers always make you feel good. And when you get "paid" with a fabulous sunset (see below), it's worth it. Thanks Angela, and the team.
Bird news: STILL depleted numbers I did see a few wrens (in the tops of the casuarinas today), one grey fantail (one???), currawongs, thornbills (always good value), spineys, yellow-faced honeyeaters, and RBFs. The walk is always lovely, I never get tired of it.
And for sci-fi fans, "...at midnight on the 12th of August..." means only one thing: WAR OF THE WORLDS. Read H.G. Wells's fabulous book, or listen to Jeff Wayne's masterpiece. ULLAH!
