Every day, I go to Borders, order some tea, select a few "friends" (novels) to keep me company, and I sit down and write.
I usually order this yummy white tea flavored with berries that smells like homemade blueberry muffins. Yum! It’s this golden, clear tea color--very pretty.
They have new pots and glasses which are also clear, so you can study the way the sunlight shines through the tea.
When you drizzle honey into the tea (also a pretty, clear, golden color), you can see it settle to the bottom in pretty little ripples. On the bottom of the cup, it winds in a mass of curls, even more golden than the tea.
What’s weird is, when I stir the honey, the tea suddenly takes on this milky, pale gold.
Clear tea + clear honey = milky tea.
That about sums up my writing day today. How I managed an excruciating 500 words, is beyond me. It’s at that point, where I’m feeling a little lost. I need to organize all the words, outline, and then keep going.
I prefer that to happen around 15 - 20,000 word mark. Probably not a good sign it’s happening at the 10,000 word mark.
Boring writing day, boring blog post. Ugh. On to more interesting matters:
How’s your writing going? Your reading? Your day?
