Melbourne Writers' Festival

I'm on my way, folks! To the MWF, of course. So excited! I'm really looking forward to learning from the amazing authors that are presenting. And I'm very excited about the book launches as well. Today will be pretty much non-stop - only half an hour between all my sessions, starting at 10 and finishing up at 6:30. And then going right back for another round tomorrow! :)

Now, quick update: I'm mostly reading screenplays at the moment. Although, I did cave and buy a novel when I happened upon it at the bookstore yesterday. I mean, c'mon, it's Mockingjay, people!! :) I've been editing a few stories and working on an essay, hopefully for publication, not to mention the schoolwork. And of course, I'm mulling over my screenplay. I've just thrown two unlikely companions into a deadly jungle, so now I've got to figure out what's going to happen to them...

Any suggestions? ;)

Don't know about the two characters in the jungle--but let us know about the conference! Sounds exciting...

Thanks, Kenda:) I think I'll just have to throw whatever jungle horrors I can think of at my characters and see how their underlying tension affects what they do. (i.e., Hmm, to save his sorry bum or not to save his sorry bum...) :p

The first day of the festival was great:) I'll do another post later today, to get into the details.
