I'll admit, it's been an extraordinary couple of weeks. My life is not usually like this. If it was, I think I'd have cardiac arrest from sensory overload.

Melbourne Writers' Club: It was great to connect with fabulous people in the writing community at Melbourne Writers' Club last week, which is a monthly networking event organised by Sandi Sieger, editor-in-chief on Onya Magazine.

SXSW: South by South West in Austin, Texas is always a mind trip and this year was no different. It's five days of ideas, ideas and then some more ideas.
