writing joys

Last week I started my writing collaboration with Associate Professor Susan Danby from Queensland University of Technology. We have been contracted to write a chapter on children as communicators for an edited book on childhood and literacies. Our chapter employs Conversation Analysis to examine children's communication within pre-school and school settings. So far we have been to-ing and fro-ing via emails and almost produced a first draft of the chapter. The experience is a great opportunity for me.
