So we continue the apparently mammoth task of writing up a few sessions of the writer’s festival. I really am a master at procrastination.

This is taking me ages to write up, but I better do it soon because I didn’t take many notes (because when I did I felt like I was at work, so I stopped) and I’m in danger of forgetting if I don’t. Overall this year’s festival was really enjoyable, and I’m not sure why that is. Certainly all the writing advice that was given out wasn’t anything new to someone like me, who spends a lot of time
procrastinating reading about writing online – write what you love, write what you want to read, read a lot, take notice of the world around you, etc. Despite that I still feel like I got a lot out of it.

A.K.A DECISIONS, DECISIONS
It’s time once again for the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival. Originally I thought there was bugger all on, but then I looked at the programme properly, and found some stuff. And of course there are clashes, because why on earth wouldn’t there be when I only want to see a handful of things over three days.
