When the Australian Women Writers Challenge launched in 2012 I signed up and it really did stretch my reading habits, but the real win was the challenge to REVIEW. As an author, I happily read widely. I read constantly (well, sometimes I sleep). But reviewing was scary.
AWW12 changed all that. Now I enjoy the chance to stop and think about a book I’ve read and try to distil its magic into a few words so other people can decide if they want to read it, too.
So I’m signed up for AWW13. Franklin level this year. Eek! I mean … bring it on! 😉
