However, sometimes when I sit down to write I get writer's block. I went through the ritual of making some hot tea - decaf Earl Grey, to which I added some lavender buds - and settled in front of my laptop, and proceeded to go blank. I stared at the mug...one of those inspirational Barnes and Noble mugs with the picture of books on flower stems, and a lady in a summer hat clipping the books like roses. If only I could just snip my book off of a flower stem and see it in its final glory!
My answer to this writer's block was to post my first blog for 2012. Here's hoping the ideas are flowing again soon!
