Land of Ink and Coffee

At left, coffee black as ink as photographed by Jon-Isac Lindberg. Jon-Isac has waived all rights to the image making it public domain but we like to attribute our photographs here on Mayhem, even when the artist is so generous as to allow any use.

It's more a half cup of coffee, isn't it?


The summer season of trials and visits has past. I went almost nowhere but the procession here through the house was substantial.

I could manage a kind of writing schedule (not daily, alas) and so made some progress. Now though, the disturbance has past and just the balance of summer remains.

There is little as productive as a break once in a while.

I've a new stream of stories, new characters, a nice clean desk (cleaning is a consequence of visitors especially when the library becomes headquarters for "camp cub"), and a joy for returning to the discipline of ink, transcription, revision, re-writing and ....submission.

So, off to do some writing. At the shop all day doing what I do which had fallen behind as well.

I hope your characters enjoyed the break as much as mine. A few more murders have popped-up in the interim. Imaging that? Shocking,

Of for trouble. You too.

Glad you're back to it! A clean desk would be nice (says Elizabeth, glancing over at a spot of clutter). And coffee (and murder) is a must!
