FUN FACT I am extremely nervous!!!!!
FUN FACT I came across this event via Facebook (they may be listening into my conversations but I’ll allow it this time seeing as it’s an event that I was interested in attending)
Maylands is a riverside inner-city suburb approximately 4.5 kilometres (2.8 mi) northeast of Perth centred on the Midland railway line on the northern bank of the Swan River.
The suburb was developed during the 1890s and is an administrative locality within the City of Bayswater (having been mostly within the City of Stirling until 1998), bordered by the suburbs of Mount Lawley, East Perth and Bayswater. Maylands railway station provides easy access to the City centre and beyond. The railway line was originally built in the 1880s, and the railway station was extensively refurbished in 2000. Recently a shared bicycle / pedestrian path was built to link Maylands with neighbouring suburbs via the shoreline of the Swan River. There is also a small yacht club and a golf course.
Maylands was once a source of clay for brick and tile making at Maylands Brickworks, and the pits from these activities are now part of a golf course and residential area. It was home to Perth’s main airport which serviced all kinds of aircraft and even flying boats until the early 1960s, when the airport moved to Perth Airport. The facilities were then converted to a training area for the Western Australian Police Service.

A WEEK BEFORE
I begin to seek out a support worker who I can attend the event with and can support me if needed.
I set out on a quest, the object of my quest required great exertion on my part, I had to overcome many obstacles, typically including much travel.
Ok, so I elaborated the last part of that by heightening it for dramatic effect!
In actual reality I merely sent out a support worker request via a hiring site and booked a support worker, I was just trying to make it sound more exciting!
THE DAY OF THE EVENT!!
It’s Saturday morning, it’s 7.45 am AWST. It’s cold and I’m tired. But my support worker has shown up and we drive the 32 mins to Maylands.
We arrive by 8.20 am. The event begins at 8.30 am. And finishes at 12.30 AWST.
I have bought along a note pad, pen, water, snacks and lunch.
The event begins.
AFTER THE EVENT
I am exhausted! But the event was worth while and informative. I certainly learnt a lot and feel confident moving forward with my novel writing.
Thanks to my support worker for taking me and making me feel calm in an unknown environment.
Carry on the Conversation
