Last night was our last Writing Race for Season 2 (and also my last race as moderator) and I would like to take a moment to reflect on what a wonderful season it has been.
Moderating the Writing Races this season has strengthened my belief that writing should not be a solitary pursuit. As writers it’s easy to find ourselves isolated and it’s only when you write in a group like this that you realise you’re not alone. I have enjoyed sharing the trials and the joys of writing with you all over the last three months. And what a fantastic three months it’s been.
We’ve had some awesome races this season and I would like to say a huge thank you to all of our special guest authors: Kim Falconer, Katherine Howell, Trent Jamieson, Peter M. Ball, Gary Kemble and Helene Young. Thank you for inspiring us and sharing your thoughts on the craft and business of writing.
Thanks also to all of the racers who joined me this season; I couldn’t have done it without your dedication and commitment. This has been a wonderful experience and I feel very fortunate to have been involved with such a talented and inspiring group of writers and authors. You have inspired me at each and every race and I look forward to writing with you at the as a racer next season.
