A Smidge of Energy

Happy after-midnight! Clothes are in the wash, the TV is showing entertainment news and I think I might have a smidge enough of energy left in me to write. But I’m probably going to waste it, because that seems like my thing. Sigh. Also, my legs are nice and smooth! Yeah, that’s generally not something to be happy about, but I’m appreciating the small pleasure of the smoothness. So good.

Oh, well, off to do something. See you later!

Gateway Books

One of my favorite authors is Kim Harrison. I found her book Dead Witch Walking in the library and I started reading it in the car on the way home. It harkened the beginning of my using the library system and the opening up of a while new world. I’m done ways, it feels like the first book that started me REALLY reading, even though I’d truly been a reader all my life.

Something about her books, just opened me up to trying new books, with different covers, different sizes, different styles. Her books made me braver. I so admire the quality of her work, who she is as an artist.

I hope one day that I can help someone be braver and emboldened, to try new books and authors and discover some new worlds that might otherwise not have known about.

Her books were more than just a series. They were a gateway to more artwork that spoke to me and still does today.

How lucky I am to have found the perfect magic of library and book.

I can only wish everyone the same.

Happy After-Witching Hour

Snuggling up on the couch with the puppy is wonderful. I’ve got some work to do tonight. But first, I must waste time. Sigh. I need to work on my BICHOK. I need so much more of that. Any suggestions on how to keep the wordy love alive during the day? I’ve been too tired at night lately.

Have a good night!

Good Morning!

Dad bought tortilla chips with onion dip. See? This is what happens when people diet. They forget which chip goes with which dip. Blech! In other news, tortilla chips are sharp.

Back to writing goodness! Have a great day!

Words for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

I’m tired already, but I came up with this idea sometime after midnight (when all good and crazy ideas are born) to make today all about the words. I was tired then, too, but I had this idea that sleep would make me less exhausted. What can I say? I was a starry-eyes dreamer. And I still am. 🙂

Wish me luck! 🙂
