Daily Diversion #437: Writing Space

I’m finally getting my new writing studio put together. As most of you know, our recent (okay, it was two+ months ago) move was ridiculous and awful. Unpacking things in my studio was pretty much at the bottom of the list. Better late than never, though. Here’s a partial view of the area above my desk.

John Steinbeck on the Magic in Story Writing

“If there is a magic in story writing, and I am convinced there is, no one has ever been able to reduce it to a recipe that can be passed from one person to another.”–John Steinbeck

John Steinbeck (November 1939)

Eleanor Roosevelt on Life

“Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can think bravely, excitingly, imaginatively; unless you can choose a challenge instead of competence.”–Eleanor Roosevelt (The Autobiography of Eleanor Roosevelt)

Shared for the last nine words of the quote.

Eleanor Roosevelt (20 July 1933).

Daily Diversion #411: Arty Self-Portrait

Recently I bought the loveliest, sweetest Victorian mini-mirror.

 It lives on my dresser, alongside a bunch of other pretty but almost wholly unnecessary bits and bobs.

A few days ago, I decided it would be fun to photograph images reflected in the mirror. 

Quite the challenge, that. 

First up? An image of myself, because it is the easiest thing to do with such a tiny mirror.

The Connected Worlds Podcast: Episode 2

The second ep of the Connected Worlds Podcast is up! In it, Kev and I discuss the writing process both in general and how it relates to EoWS

This is the first podcast we’ve recorded while living on different continents. Boy, did it come with some technical challenges! We worked through ’em, though. 

Thanks for listening!
