Nothing like a pile of unfolded laundry to ruin the Zen-like ambience of your study.

    My study is also where we dry laundry. Phd never going to be finished…

    That’s why I’m often late for work. I know, the absurdity of being late to a paid occupation so that I can do unpaid work that only gets noticed if it’s not done…

    My whole house is an expo of not-done chores.

    But this is really good: I finally thought to get The Book at the same moment I had in my possession a credit card with actual CREDIT on it.
    So off I went as extremely pleased to see your novel surrounded by Helen Garner, Eleanor Dark, David Malouf, Kate Grenville, Elizabeth Jolley, and so on.
    It just looked very impressive, and now I am highly excited to receive it.
    To celebrate, I am not folding the laundry. Hurrah!

    I should elaborate…Australian Books Online as opposed to bookshop. It is posting itself to me as we speak. So Goody.

    Ah yes, one of the things I’ve noticed about being a work-from-home writer for the past three years is that the housework got done.
