This weekend saw the end of the Sydney Writers’ festival. In previous years I haven’t been able to attend any of the festivities, but this year I was determined to make it. I mean, how can I call myself a writer if I’ve never been to the writers’ festival in my own back yard?
So, I booked into some author talks and went to the family day activities with my hubby and daughter. And it was wonderful! Every time I go to a course or an author talk, it cements in my mind that this is definitely the world I belong in.
I could spruik for pages and pages about everything I heard and learned, but seeing as I’m pushing a deadline on my WIP, I’ll let the authors themselves do the talking and share with you some of my favourite quotes from their talks.
I mean it doesn’t get any more inspiring than that, right?
What a wonderful festival. I’ll definitely be going again next year, and one day, just maybe, I’ll be there as a guest. You never know.
Have you ever been to a writers’ festival? Do you have a favourite writer quote?
