I've been busy outside my writing as well. On Sunday 18 March we held the 'Flights of Fancy' SpecFicNZ/NZ Book Month event. It was a great day, and both the readers and the audience enjoyed themselves. I was very nervous in the lead-up because I've never organised an event before, let alone an event open to the public. But it all went smoothly, of which I'm very, very glad. I had a lot of help with the event: the NZ Book Month team were supportive, as was the rest of the SpecFicNZ Committee; the staff of the Air Force Museum were great; Paul Mannering was an excellent MC (I don't know what I would have done without him); the readers were all so enthusiastic and gave such excellent performances; and my beloved became the driver / carrier of burdens / sound technician (i.e. he did all the things I forgot I wouldn't be able to do alone – like he always does :D ). I didn't do everything perfectly, but I feel like I have learned a lot through organising 'Flights of Fancy' and I'm glad I volunteered for this challenge.

Ok, I LOVE THOSE BOOTS! I am wearing my jealous face, those are some beautiful boots and I wish you wore my size so I could mug you and steal them. :D
I am mega proud of you for your dedication to your writing (partly of course out of self interest because I want to read it), and also for your ability to pull together an event like that (which I wish I could attended and like to think I was at in spirit). You are brilliant. Also, big ups to your man for helping out!
