Cake, pie and coffee, anyone? It's always a good time when writers get together for lunch.
If you've ever wondered what writers talk about, it's this:
- book ideas, characters, juicy plots
- how much we loooooove writing
- the endless possibilities in the fictional worlds we dream up
- the next book deal :)
What I've Been Up To
Writing a lot! Getting encouraging news from publishers! Washing tons of rowing zooties (yay, Aussie rowers!!) in the lead up to Head of the River, packing lunches, vaguely hearing my husband and son get up at 4:30am to drive to the boat shed before school. Driving to the train station to pick up my tribe. Fun lunches with the girls. Early morning training with crazy fitness friends. More writing. Some copywriting! A little of everything.
I seriously love my life. And I'll never apologise for that, or dim it down. Are you with me??
There's a bit of a fiction going on that Life (& writing) is all very hard. We're too busy. We're frantic. But that's not my story. My story is this: everything can be appreciated. All of it. Remember the shot of my perfect pumpkin pie and my filthy bench top? (Um, I'm just realising my life seems to have quite a lot of pie in it...ha!)
That's my life. That's yours. Perfect + Not Perfect.
There's good in everything if you look for it. My husband, who spent years as a handsome young navigator in the Canadian Navy and then the Royal Australian Navy, always says this:
He's so right. He really is.
This Weekend, Be A Lighthouse
Remember I talked about this before? Right now, this second...
Stand still. Appreciate your life.
Be YOU in all your weird glory.
I hope you have fun today.
Love, Catherine x
P.S. If you want my EASY pie crust recipe, I'll post it on Instagram. I'm @catherinegreersydney and that crust is 100% the best ever. Everyone says so...
