Now the idea is to keep it that way!
The ABC’s are the ‘A to Z’s’ of novel writing, from Writer’s Digest. The photos are WWI propaganda posters and era photos that I’ve been using for setting, character inspiration, and historical accurateness. The verses are some of the theme verses for the book. I got the “Paris” and “London” three-wick candles from B&B Works for my birthday. They are my ‘hope’ candles, which means, of course, that they won’t be lighted until my book is published. 🙂 My favorite ‘A to Z’ is letter Q:
Don’t Quit.
“Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle,” says George Orwell, “Like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by [something] whom one can neither resist nor understand.”

  1. Wow! That looks great. It makes me want to re-organize my desk… I have an HP laptop as well (only it’s not blue) and I think I have that very same wireless mouse! (Well, obviously not the ‘very same one’ but one that looks like it:)

    1. That’s neat! The laptop (and mouse :-)) was a birthday gift from my siblings a year ago. I named her Nora, and I’m very thankful for her!
      I was just thinking about you, Priscilla! How is your book coming? I had some ideas in answer to your questions, so I’ll have to e-mail those to you!
