“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”
~ J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye


I might be a little quiet the next few days. The Byron Bay Writers Festival is on this weekend, starting today. How lucky am I to live in a place that is home to so many good things?

But anyway, I digress. Writers festival! Three days that celebrate all things books, writers and the craft of putting words onto the page!!!

I have my program here, and I’ve circled all the many speakers whose events I’d like to attend. Of course this is all happening right in the middle of a very heavy course of lyme drugs, so I may end up napping under a convenient tree, or propping myself up the back of the coffee tent with a blanket over my knees and a sleepy smile on my face.

I get very tired right now, so it’s a big ask to be out and about for three days, but how can I not? So many of my favourite authors and speakers will be there. So many of my writerly friends will be in town.

And I must confess to hoping that as I sit at the feet of those who’ve gone before me, I might pick up some tips for my memoir, over which I’m currently agonising. You know the one – that time in my life where I was living in the Kimberley, going through that enormous spiritual and psychic awakening…

Who knows, perhaps I’ll see some of you there? I can’t promise I’ll have any energy left over for blogging in the next little while, so if I don’t please understand. There are lots of posts already here you can dip back into in the meantime.

Have a fabulous weekend, and be kind to yourselves,

Lots of love and hugs, Nicole xx

Hi! I'm Nicole Cody. I am a writer, psychic, metaphysical teacher and organic farmer. I love to read, cook, walk on the beach, dance in the rain and grow things. Sometimes, to entertain my cows, I dance in my gumboots. Gumboot dancing is very under-rated.
