I had such a great time at the Canberrans Taking On The World event at @cbrwritersfest today! Craig Cormick talking with Karen Viggers, Dan O’Malley and Cat Sparks . 
Some highlights were:
Cat saying she’s a fiction writer who accidentally got drunk at a party and got talked into doing a PHD. 
Dan saying he felt like he had ‘made it’ as an author when he saw someone in Woden plaza reading his book. (Aside from the fact that he has just come back from England after filming a cameo appearance in the HBO series adaption of his book The Rook...!!!) And when Karen realised AFTER getting home from her French book tour that every time she thought she has said ‘I’m so excited’ in French she’d actually said something sexual 😂

It is a curious feature of living in Canberra—particularly through a week as tumultuous as this one has been—that at the end of it, the principal actors on its political stage depart, some permanently, leaving behind something that feels to us locals very much like a crime scene. One almost feels like bringing in a “trauma cleaner,” such as the one Sarah Krasnostein writes about so compellingly. I am enormously excited about talking to Sarah about her fine, fascinating book at the Canberra Writers’ Festival tomorrow morning—it’s sold out! #cbrwritersfest #sarahkrasnostein #textpublishing #traumacleaner #canberrawritersfestival @portraitau
