This week’s topic was chosen by KD Fleming in celebration of her book, Her Hometown Reporter!
The reporter is looking for a story that’ll be his ticket out of his small Georgia town. With her political connections, legal assistant Gina Lawson could help Toby realize his aspirations. Their friendship is just an added bonus, but falling in love isn’t part of his five-year plan.
Gina’s devoted to her family and community, and doesn’t plan to ever leave. Though she finds her favorite reporter maddeningly irresistible, she must guard her heart. But when a betrayal of trust threatens to shatter both their dreams, will Gina and Toby learn that they share the same values after all?
So I’d like to begin this month’s Writer Wednesday post with a confession. Even though I had this topic in advance, I failed to actually WRITE the blog post in advance. And, although I am working on my latest book every day, I am currently 3,000 or so miles from my office. Is this daunting? It could be, if, um, I had not (over the years) developed coping ‘work-arounds’ for the times procrastination bites me in the…a-hem…finger.
First I give you (direct from a broker’s photo) my current office, which is actually a built-in in my TV room. This suits me just fine because I’m actually far more comfortable tapping away on the couch. (And I am aware this is very, very bad for my wrists…but it’s very, very good for my word count).
While I cannot choose a favorite office object, that red feathery thing above the lamp is somewhat dear. If you are wondering what that little feathery red thing is, well, it’s an official mummer doll purchased at the Mummers’ Museum. And if you don’t know what a mummer is, you are not from the greater Philadelphia region. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Mummers:
I pilfered pics from a very-long-ago post (so long ago I no longer have this office) to show you ‘my favorite office objects’ runner-up division. These two things also make me laugh. A writer’s clock permanently fixed to adult beverage and a cup with a Tigger I purchased at RWA Nationals in Orlando (conferences are fun-fun-fun-fun) which is attached to a mug made from a photo of a theater set my talented nephew built (I’m a proud aunt).
