Haiku: Magpies

Living on the edge of the Nerang Forest, we are privileged to hear and see lots of varieties of wildlife – birds such as kookaburras, lorikeets, galahs, pulvars, to name just a few. My favorite has always been the magpie. They are known to swoop in breeding season, but they say that if they know you, they won’t swoop. Well, I get feathered visitors most mornings, and only once has a magpie swooped me!

Here’s a pic of one, and a haiku I wrote about the inquisitive and intelligent Magpie.

Sitting, singing, on a fence

Warbling a new day.

Cruise trip : Port Douglas & Cairns

I’ve not posted on my blog for a while.

Life has been busy this year (more on that in later post).

Its been studies, writing and work, although I did squeeze in a cruise in the middle of the year. We went to Port Douglas and Cairns, and it was beautiful. See pics below…

Now that my thesis is done, and I’m waiting for my results, I have more time away from studying.

Am working on my next novel, set around a witch. It’ll be a timeslip novel which I love writing! πŸ™Œ This one will be sent to a publisher…I’ve decided to go the traditional route with this book.

Does anyone have any experience of using both metods of publishing?

Traditional or Self-published?

I’d love your thoughts!
