So, I’ve been pretty quiet on the socials lately. Because I live in Melbourne.

Yeah. Nuff said.

Last lockdown, we were all grappling with uncertainty. Switch to me documenting all the everyday things I was grateful for… and the posts to remind myself. But as anyone who is going through it can attest, lockdown mk II has been a very different beast – am I right, fellow Melburnians? The focus this time round has been trying to help my two small humans through what has been an abysmally disappointing and unsettling time for them, while also fighting to get work.

As the brilliant wordsmith and ultimate pragmatist, Jacquie Byron, once said to me – it’s all about the hustle, lady. So that’s what I’ve been doing. Massive upside being I’ve finally achieved a personal milestone – to see one of my articles published today under The Guardian’s masthead. The depth of its Arts (caps used advisedly) coverage is absolutely stellar ⭐️ and gives the sector the voice it so desperately needs. I couldn’t be more proud of the association with them.

So – “Can Hollywood on the Gold Coast help save Australia’s floundering film and TV industry?” You’ll have to read it to find out.
