Our new world-count monitor

9 01 2014

At the Berry retreat, we had a peacock act as our word-count monitor (see photo above). At Oberon, we had deer (although they were less interested in our word count). At Keri Keri, we were too obsessed with waterfalls and Rye Park was too far from anywhere to have anything (except a ghost).

Well, here at Jindabyne, we  have a new word-count monitor. Introducing Spiky Ernest* the Echidna!

Isn’t he cute? So far, Jo’s the only one to see him, but the rest of us have plans.
