Where would I like to be drinking my coffee today?
One of my favourite coffee drinking locations was my grandmother’s cottage. It was those early morning coffees from my 20’s. The sun would be shining bright with the promise of a great day and the world around me would be quiet and still. I would pull my chair close to the water’s edge and watch the sun create blinding diamond patterns on the water’s surface. Whatever book I was reading would be settled in my lap while a sipped my hot coffee and enjoyed the sun’s warmth on my skin. There might be the occasional sound of birds chirping or the scurry of a chipmunk’s feet. As the morning wore on and my coffee cup started to empty there might even be the occasional morning fisher drive by in a motorized aluminum boat creating the soft lapping sound of waves breaking against the waterline in front me. Those peaceful coffee drinking mornings are a joyful memory that I associate to my coffee cup.
If we were having coffee, I would share with you that I opened an Author Instagram account. Some of you might know that social media platforms aren’t really my strong suit. I only opened a Facebook account for the first time in 2016… Anyway, I recently attended a webinar about social media platforms as author tools. In particular, this webinar focused on Instagram. I was curious about it so I opened an account. If any of you want to check it out, sharimarshallauthor. I made a video in my phone for the first time ever (yes, that is embarrassing) and I posted it to Instagram. Loved it.
If we were having coffee, that this week was pretty busy and definitely heavy on the computer front of things. So, besides the usual work and parent roles. I signed up for 2 online conferences. It was Fantasy Writers’ Week and it was also the week for The Women in Writing Summit. Loved both. Great speakers at both and great communities. I would recommend both conferences.
If we were having coffee, I would slide the full coffee pot and an empty cup your way. How was your week?
