Wishin’ I had a big ol’ pot of tea this morning. I can lay away some tea, you guys. It’s serious. Occasionally, I like some tea with my books, too. There’s nothing like sitting in a big comfy chair with a slew of blankets and a nice pot o’ tea. Maybe sometime this week, I’ll get to live out that fantasy. It’s been a really busy week over at my place. If you read yesterday’s post, you’ll know that I’ve been pulling some LONG hours with lots of major projects to accomplish. So, since I’ve got to skedaddle and get a bunch done, here are some other peoples’ posts for you to enjoy! Raise your cup of tea to Wednesday Wanderment! And….we’re OFF!

Random Facts About My Writing and Reading Habits
>> I LOVE series books. Probably my favorite “genre” of books are series books. I adore them because you have ample time to connect with the characters and the story doesn’t end after book 1.
>> I’m pretty hesitant to let friends borrow my books. I tend to not see them for a LOOOONG time when I do. So, now I’ve started forcing friends to offer me collateral–something valuable they’d want back–in exchange to borrow. 😉 It’s bad…I know…
>> Favorite writing music this week is: OCRemixes for video games, Distant Worlds, Gladiator OST, and Skyrim OST.
Happy Wednesday, all!
