2011 Launch Party for the Melbourne Writers Festival

On Saturday evening, my wife and I attended the launch party for the 2011 Melbourne Writers Festival. This was special for me. It marks a year since the launch of my book, Diary of a Schizophrenic, at the festival last year. A lot has happened in this year. I have written another book, and have become very excited about where my writing is taking me. We both feel like writers now, my wife and I, and this life direction is giving us both a sense of new found enjoyment.

The launch party was quite full, with lots of new and budding authors all eager to make their mark. Their was some very good hair, as all writers festivals should have. But there was a real and palpable sense of what is possible through the written word. Let's hope we never lose that.
