Speaking

On September 10, there will be a one-day ‘Teen Writers’ Masterclass’, for 12 to 17-year-olds, at the National Maritime Museum, Darling Harbour. It will be run by Anthony Eaton, Susanne Gervay, publisher Linsey Knight, and me. The details are here.
Also, I am speaking at the Abbotsleigh Literary Festival tomorrow, at MLC next week, and at the Melbourne Writers’ Festival on 31 August.
Thank you.

Yay! Melbourne!

Actually I commented a while ago about my sadness that the session was SOLD OUT. But then some time later I had a thought, and I thought, what if there were ticket-releasing fairies at work, slyly fiddling with the numbers? And I was missing out because I didn't believe in ticket-releasing fairies?
So I went back to the website, and sure enough, it had changed its mind and decided to say SELLING FAST instead.
So, thank you, ticket-releasing fairy! You are most kind!

Ohh. I missed the master class.
And the website tells me I have to type in "wivib" to post this comment.
Why wivib?

Hi Jaclyn! Just wanted to say I miss your blogging, and wanted to share this great review of Finding Cassie Crazy that I found on one of my favourite blogs: http://www.persnicketysnark.com/2010/11/review-finding-cassie-crazy-jaclyn.html#more

Jaclyn, I miss you! And I miss Liane. And, actually, I am a little worried, because both of you stopped blogging at the same time. So, I hope that's coincidence, and not that something awful has happened. I suppose, maybe something wonderful has happened and that is what has taken your mind off blogging? I hope so.

Sammy, thank you for missing us, and no, nothing awful has happened - we've just both disappeared into our writing for a while. I know Liane is heading towards 'the end', and I'm trying to get my first Cello book to start writing itself.

Zoe! Thank you so much for sharing that review - it was lovely!

Sabiya, that my blog appeared in your dream is truly an honour. Thank you for dreaming that. I had better make it come true soon, and get the blog started again. As soon as i feel like Cello is truly on its way.

Nat, the website says I have to type in gadvel. Why gadvel?

Lucie, I THINK i sent you an email, I hope I did. But at the moment I've got no more Melbourne plans. One day soon though. I loved that trip to Melbourne. It's a fine and intriguing city and the food was superb.

And Rebecca, it's long ago that you wrote this comment, so you will have forgotten, but I wonder if you were in the audience that day. It was a very good day, except when I got lost going to the festival and began to fear I would miss it.

Okay, I'll get back to Cello now. Thanks for the comments, everyone.

Of course I was! I didn't want to risk the wrath of the ticket-releasing fairies, after all. I mean, I'm pretty sure they don't like their efforts to be wasted.

I thought you were great, but I didn't much like the second session (the one where you were on with Lilly someoneorother) because the woman "hosting" was more like "interfering". Maybe it's just me but when I go to hear authors speak, I prefer them to actually get a chance to say stuff.

Errrrrrmm rant over, heh. Best of luck getting Cello to write itself!

Hello, I just found this blog and I wanted to say that I love you Jaclyn Moriarty. The Ashbury High books are pretty much my favourite books ever (and that includes Harry Potter :O).
I absolutely love Cass, Em and Lyd. I wish they were my best friends.

You are an amazing writer and write in a way that I have never read before. You have actually inspired me to try and write a book, which is saying something because english was my worst subject at school!!

-Cate :D

Dear Blackberry Hosted Exchange: THANK YOU, for being my regular reader; and I'm very sorry for the absence of posts. I'm lost in the Kingdom of Cello. But I want to come back and write more here soon. As soon as I can.

And dear Cate: thank YOU,too, and I must say I love you too, for saying such gorgeous things!
