Heya Ben!

I'm Craig from Brisbane. I read your intro on visionwriters and thought I'd friend you. But Shhhhh! No-one else knows I'm here.

My career sounds a lot like yours. I lecture in Creative Writing at QUT up here, and dabble with novels and screenplays.

Look forward to reading you!

Pythons

...How do you get attacked by a python, anyway? Does it drop on top of you from a tree? Trips you over? Rushes at you and swallows your head? Obviously pythons are successful hunters but I would've thought that catching people would be tricky. Or do they wait until your back's turned and you're squatting as you study something on the ground, and then- POW!

I dunno. Just seems weird to me.

Re: Pythons
i guess it drops on you, wraps around you, and then opens its jaws wide and swallows you up...

i guess.

I'd be thinking - Holy Crap I'm being surrounded and crushed to death by a Python who's gonna eat me whole. What a stupid way to die, Pythons aren't sposed to eat people. Even in death I'm being bloody gibbed
