Grant year: writing Skin Deep

This year I was lucky enough to receive an Australia Council New Work grant to work on my novel, Skin Deep. Here's how my year panned out...


  1. January

  2. Now that grant year has begun, I'm planning to document the process to some extent. I think it will be useful to myself, and also will come in handy at the end of the year, when I've got an acquittal to hand in.
  3. Well, yesterday was my first official 'grant day' and, wow, what a difference a day makes.
  4. Saw plenty of tattoos on show at Noosa/Noosaville. I take a good look at every design I see now.
