The dominant smell is apple. It is almost a green apple smell with a sugary overlay. The taste is reminiscent of caramel and it leaves a lingering candied aftertaste. The temperature is just right and each sip of my apple crisp macchiato slides down smooth.
If we were having coffee, I would share with you that I participated in Inkers Mini Con last weekend. It was a digital conference with presentations from industry experts and authors. I really enjoyed it and found that offered a lot of great information. The main Inkers Con runs in July this year. I haven’t signed up yet because I am waiting for my July schedule to firm up first, but I hope to be able to attend. If you are curious to know more you can find the website, here.
If we were having coffee, I would share with you that while I take a short break from editing Book One I have been working one book Two. I have written 3 chapters of this new manuscript and I am starting the fourth. This first couple of chapters have taken a bit longer to commit to paper than I expected because of the introduction of a new character that I can only descript right now as beyond average. I also had to develop a new item that is essential to driving the plot of this new novel.
If we were having coffee, I would share with you that it was literacy week at school this week for my boys. One of the activities was wacky hair day. It just so happened that the boys both got temporary hair dye for Christmas this year so we used it for wacky hair day. I haven’t dyed hair in years and the three of us really enjoyed this experience. I think the part that was the most fun for them was the end result of blue hair (and yes blue was the goal).
If we were having coffee, I would smile and slide the coffee pot to you so that you can take a turn sharing the events of your week.
