Can you think of a title for my new book?

Front Garden dry creek

I’m just about to submit the first five chapters of my next non-fiction book. ALL I NEED IS A TITLE. IF YOU CAN THINK OF ONE I’d sure like to hear it. Just drop a line on the contact page of my website http://www.michelegierck.com.au

This book is a post-injury come-back story in which the bush, the ocean and a bloke (a fellow) all play their part.

Here’s the pitch.

When Michele, a broken down sojourner (kind of Liz Gilbertish), meets Mac, a dedicated river scientist (think a young David Attenborough), she is drawn into his orbit, the gravity of which propels her onto an uncharted trajectory.

If you’d like to know more about this book, like the title and publication details, just sign up to the newsletter on my website.

New places, new perspectives … and inspiration.

The great thing about getting away is visiting new places, getting new perspectives, and firing up your inspiration. How stirring nature can be.

Believe in Yourself

A project I’ve been working on for some years has just been offered a contract. For creative people, the need to believe in your work is as essential as your own determination and persistence. This gumnut reminds me that sometimes we have to stand alone for things we believe in, regardless what others say, hoping one day a little light will shine on us or our creative endeavours.

Dive In, Splash About, Enjoy. Be Creative

BlackbirdAfterBath

One of my favourite backyard visitors, a blackbird, plunges into the bird bath. The blackbird looks pleased, perched on the bath’s rim, feathers dripping. And so am I, with my new bird bath–a recycled gardening pot.

Sometimes joy can be as simple as watching the antics of a feathery friend diving in, splashing about, enjoying. And being creative is so much fun, especially making something new out of something old–something even tweeting visitors can delight in.
