Collaboration

GroupFlowers Writing may be a solitary experience, but bringing a book to life depends on a team of collaborators. And fortunately, the publisher of my next non-fiction book has an exceptional team. And not just with books, but with life in general, a good crew of collaborators, or friends, make all the difference in life.

A Budding Project

  first spring buds BUSH PEA Aug2014 Most things that bloom, regardless of being a flower, or an artistic work start off as a small bud. And I'm hoping that the manuscript just forwarded to my publisher, a budding project, will bloom fully and vibrantly, delighting many readers.

Pursuing An Idea

BabyTern&MumOnBeachCreativity is a fascinating process. Critical to it, and I'm speaking from a writer's perspective, is the capacity and determination to pursue an idea - be it fashionable or not. And to believe in it. Relentlessly. It was like that with my first book, published in 2006. And so it is with the current two!         Image: Baby and Mother Tern, Lord Howe Island, Australia Text and Image copyright Michele Gierck www.michelegierck.com.au

Patience

BirdPecksGumnutAug2013 Wildlife photography and getting your book published have their commonalities. Both require patience. Waiting and hoping. Wondering. What will happen? Waiting some more. Then finally, finally, often when you've almost given up, that magical moment arrives-- like this honeyeaster pecking at the eucaplyptus silver princess. Or an equally delightful agent's call. As always, I wait in hope. Text and image copyright Michele Gierck www.michelegierck.com.au
