Coffee’s wispy vapours

I sit quietly watching the steam rising form my mug. It is playful as it rolls and dances softly on the cooler air currents. There is potential for me to get lost in the steam this morning as my lazy mind rolls and dances with the wispy vapours. The window that provides my backdrop is a hazy snow filled sky that only ads to my desire for nothing more than the silence of this very moment.

If we were having coffee, I would marvel at the fact that 2021 is slowly coming to an end. I have only one other virtual coffee scheduled for 2021 and that will be on December 26. Wow! That said, I have decided that 2022 will be the year of coffees here at Brewing Coffee, Twisting Words & Breaking Pencils. So, we will have lots of time for catching up then.

If we were having coffee, I would share a picture from Halloween because the last time we shared a virtual cup of coffee I promised that I would. So, here it is.

If we were having coffee, I would ask you if you use Goodreads? I am looking for some tips and advice about how to grow my following there. I am also looking for tips and advice on navigating and using Goodreads in general. It is new to me. I took a Webinar on Goodreads as it relates to authors not too long ago hosted by Alessandra Torre. It was informative and I would recommend it. I took a couple other Webinars since we had coffee last.

How are you? Have you taken any courses or Webinars lately?

Weekend Coffee Share is hosted by Natalie the Explorer. I hope you have a chance to join us for a virtual cup.

  1. I’m glad to hear you decided that 2022 will be the year of coffees on your blog. I read regularly without using Goodreads. Perhaps it would be useful for you as a writer. Thank you for linking up with #weekendcoffeeshare.

  2. I have not use Goodreads in a long time. I use to use it to keep a “to be read’ list but it got so bloated. I have used to join some local book club for my next reads.. I agree with Natalie, I’m sure for authors it’s a way to connect with the reading community as there are so many users.

  3. Hi Shari.
    I recall sorta starting to use Goodreads, but never found a reason to keep it up to date or just explore. I may well have fully missed the value of it, but whatever the value is, I just never saw it.
    Pretty wild costumes in that photo. Do you ever do anything in a small way?
    Hope you and your family have a safe and memorable Christmas season.

    1. Yes, it is funny because I had opened an account so long ago with Goodreads that I forgot I had it. I have just linked back up, so we shall see how it goes. I have been enjoying it so far.

      I love Halloween, so I might go a bit over board. I like to keep the kids on their toys. Haha.

      I hope you and yours have a great holiday season too, Gary.

  4. I did that webinar with Alexandra Torre too – took so many notes and have done close to zilch with it. I do love Goodreads for keeping on top of my reading though… Love your Halloween photos. Have a great week.
