Delayed surprise!

This is my second posting today, but I want to tell you about my surprise.  Our yesterday got all turned around – the  way life happens sometimes –  so we forgot to pick up our mail.  When my husband brought it in early this afternoon … yippee!!  The book I won – A Black Tie Affair by Sherrill Bodine – had arrived in Friday’s mail!  It was postmarked Jan. 26, so took about 11 days to get here from Florida.   That’s not bad.

I am excited to read this book, which just became available January 1.   Sherrill personalized my copy for me and included a publicity photo of herself.  Also, in response to her note on an included postcard,  I will be writing to Sherrill to let her know her book has reached its destination.

The next time I mention A Black Tie Affair it will be to share my thoughts about it.  🙂

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

Are you an information gatherer?

It is a beautiful but very cold wintry morning here in NS, but I don’t mind much since I’ll be inside most of the day.  🙂  It’s a great day for writing or reading, so I will get some of that done later today  (I hope!)  as I am not one to play in the snow anymore.   BRRRRRRRRR

I continue to post on my page called My ‘have read’ list, adding to it as I finish a book.  I’ve added to it twice this month.  Eventually, there will be books added that I finish reading this year but started months ago.  Often I will take a book with me to read while waiting for my turn in the doctor’s office or some such place.  Because of that it takes longer to finish those ones.  Do you do that or do you just hope you will find interesting magazines on hand when you get there?

Are you one who prefers to make conversation with the people around you?  I did that last week, talked with the lady I sat next to in a waiting room, and it was quite interesting.

Are you a watcher and listener?  Do you get story ideas that way?

What are you reading these days?   Or what are you brainstorming about now?  Or what is it that are you listening for, searching for, gathering tidbits for?  Do tell!

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
