Celebrate the small things

There's a definite tinge of autumn in the air. The days are getting shorter and the leaves are falling. Local shops are displaying an appealing array of cosy sweaters and fur topped boots and, for the first time in months, I feel like closing the curtains, lighting the scented candles and settling down with a hot chocolate!

I love writing at this time of year, I find it so atmospheric.



I received some really positive feedback on my ms this week and I am looking forward to settling down and working on it over the next few weeks. 

I also love this time of year because Strictly Come Dancing is about to start. Time to dig out the sequins and sparkly shoes!




Thanks to Viklit and her team of co-hosts

  15. I haven't heard of that show, but probably b/c it's a UK one, I'm guessing? Dancing is fun to watch, especially when you're one that has no talent in it whatsoever- like me! Enjoy your autumn days. =)

  18. I haven't seen much autumnal weather yet - I bought woolly tights and everything, but it's just too warm... And getting warmer again next week, did you know?

    I don't watch Strictly. But I'm loving the current Doctor Who series - that's how I know it's autumn :-)

  19. We're definitely on the same page regarding autumn! It's a bit warm around here, but the weather's pretty beautiful and the cool nights are just beginning to tinge the trees with that smokey palette. Add the premiers of all the new shows, and I can't resist this season! Happy Fall!

  22. Nothing like some positive feedback to get one excited to get back to a manuscript.

  23. Glad you got positive feedback. That's great. I can't believe autumn is near. It seems to me winter has just left. Why year passes so quickly?

  24. Congrats on the positive feedback.
    I do love autumn. It's coming into spring here in Australia. Wanna swap? ;)

  25. It's always great to hear positive things about what you create. That's wonderful.

    As to fall, it is a special time. I love the light and the colorful leaves.
