TEA AND SYNCHRONICITY???

So, I'm sitting here pleased as punch with my new tea of choice.

Yep, I drink tea. I also mainline Diet Mtn Dew and have an affinity for

frozen coffee drinks, but, this post is about tea.



Celestial Seasonings Tea.



I love the little boxes the tea comes in, each one bursting with

artwork and little side quotes. It's definitely tea for the soul. I

remember years and years ago when I first found out about these teas. I

thought they were really cool.… Continue

So Long, Crossing Jordan...

Okay. So, I'm a Crossing Jordan fan. Have been since it first

aired on tv. And tonight, it's lights out, so long, farewell. The final

episode (as NBC chose to cancel the show) airs tonight.



It was already the season finale'...and now, tonight's show is the last

of the last. Sure, the show is already in sindication on A&E, but,

it's not quite the same. No more new eppisodes to look forward to each

week.



So, to the cast and crew and everyone… Continue

Weird Coincidences...

Today, I have received not one, not two, but, three nudges to get writing!



1. This morning in a non-writing related email, I read about a

historical incident in Scotland that I'd previously researched on the

web as a part of a potential storyline. It was something of a surprise

to see the topic pop up on the screen without having done a search.





2. A published writer took the time to add an encouraging post on my spot over at BookPlace. Thanks,… Continue

BUMPS ALONG THE WRITING ROAD...

Today I'm at least thinking about writing, but honestly, I've had

a bit of a dry spell. The stories are there. In my head. They are just

not on the page. Or in my word processing program.



To help me through the hurdle I bought a handful of neat little

journals and special pens last week at the office supply place. Okay.

Who else can spend forever in the office supply? Hands?



I love looking at all the paper stock and sorting through the pens… Continue

Foot in the Door...

Welcome to my crimespace place. Grab a cuppa, pull up a chair and enjoy.



I write mysteries and romantic suspense and love to read. One of these days, one of my manuscripts will be published. :-)



When I'm not writing or reading, I work in a bookstore. Whooo! Books. Books. Books.



When I need a break from the books, I piddle on the violin.





I also write about what I'm reading over on blogger.… Continue

Hi Beth, and thanks for the invite. Fascinated to see that when you're not writing or reading, you're working in a book shop - wow! Good luck with getting your writing published. Keep the faith!

When I was growing up in New Olreans, I'd take the city bus from Araby in St. Bernard Parish into downtown NOLA. It took three transfers, pass graveyards and schools and shotgun houses. Finally I arrived at my sanctuary, the public library. The first time I was about twelve. I ran my hands over the books and selected a corner where I could hide and read. The first book I settled on was by a man named William Faulkner, and the title was The Sound and the Fury. I'd never heard of him, but it looked fine. I opened the book, sat on the floor near a window that overlooked the circle and I heard a whisper. "We are each in our ordered place." Now would you believe that "each in its ordered place" is the last line of The Sound and the Fury? Twisted childhood memory or the ghost of Faulkner? See my blog www.beatitudesinneworleans.blogspot.com where I just posted one of my stories from the short story collection called "Each in its Ordered Place," in addition to excerpts from my book coming out in October. Best wishes...

Hey Beth,
Thanks again for the invite. I hope you like the book. The second in the series comes out in September (Blood Poison).
I've read and enjoyed a bunch of your posts. I wish I could get it together to be more involved in blogging, etc.
Keep in touch!

Hi, Beth, thanks for the invite. I didn't know about the Crossing Jordan thing...now I'm sad.

Hi Beth--Thanks for befriending me. Always happy to meet another book freak. Sorry to hear about Crossing Jordan. I feel your pain. I'm still mourning The X-Files.
Amanda
