My 6-year old daughter just produced a 5-page graphic novel featuring talking dogs. She traced the dogs from a Sandra Boynton book and gave them word balloons. She's even included advanced layout elements such as off-panel speakers and thought balloons. Atta girl! Just be sure you get a good day job before you try to publish!

NOOOOOO!!!!! See thread on how having a day job helps writing and vice versa... plus I intend to use all my money to live the life of leisure I was denied by not having wealthy parents myself.

Speaking of ancestors, congrats on finding yours, Volgadon! What was their profession?

Yes, until such time as she becomes my 18-21 year-old.

The best thing today, for the vast majority of Victorians, is the fact that the bushfire threat has finally been declared over after nearly four weeks of fires, warnings, evacuations etc.

The other best thing is that I managed to get tickets to go and see the Sound Relief concert, which is a fund raiser for Bushfire victims. It took nearly an hour, and I had very nearly given up when I finally got through (the ticket company's system didn't seem to cope very well with such heavy demand). This will be my son's first official grown up concert which is kind of cool!

Acts performing in Melbourne include Kings of Leon, Jack Johnson, Midnight Oil and Split Enz (both reforming for this gig) and a few others. Can't wait!
