Travellin’ Man

I’m in Gippsland in the south-east of Victoria – staying in the same motel for three nights, which has to be a record. I have to drive fifty-sixty kilometers in different directions to reach my schools … Still, it’s pleasant not to be forever loading and unloading the car. Especially since the weather here is stop-start showers a dozen times a day.

I’m gargling brandy like mad – medical purposes, for the good of my throat. Doing so many talks, my throat gets sore, so I need to anaesthetize it with alcohol!

Melbourne has become the disappointing part of this trip – only three schools, and often only part of the day. Whereas, outside of Melbourne, I’m visiting eight schools and almost always filling up the whole day. Very interesting- I’ve always said that regional schools appreciate an author visit more.

I won’t be short of things to do in Melbourne, though. I’ll need to spend every spare part of every day visiting bookshops, plus I’ve got a lunch with my publisher tomorrow week. Important discussion coming up!
