weekending and writing...

We spent the weekend with family for our annual get-together in north-eastern Victoria, a gathering of siblings, first, second and even third cousins.  This area is the place that inspired my entry for the Writers' Victoria Regional Members' Writers competition.  My Highly Commended piece has been published in this month's edition of The Victorian Writer - very exciting!  In the spirit of show and tell, I've attached a scan of the magazine to the blog - hope you enjoy it.  There was certainly plenty of story-telling this weekend and I'd love to capture these tales before it's too late.

Do you maintain links to your extended family and see them throughout the year?
Is there a special place in the world that you consider 'home'?
Has your family history been told?  If not, do you plan to record it?
