Sunset – Glasshouse Mountains – Australia.
Life is Beautiful.
MY COUNTRY – Dorothea MacKellar
I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror –
The wide brown land for me!
The First Draft
The way I was taught to write in school and university/college is a process I have had to unlearn in order to start writing novels. Novel writing is like everything else in life, something one needs to take an apprenticeship in.
