WELCOME TO MINT TEA AND ELEPHANTS

Picture it. You are hunched over an old typewriter. Your silhouette is illuminated by a solitary lamp and the halo of steam from your fourth cup of tea. Clickety-clack, clickety-clack, ding! You’re writing a novel. Not just any novel. The next literary masterpiece… This is how I’d like to think I look when I write because reality, though dramatic (hair pulling, audible sighing, existential crises), isn’t that elegant. I’m new to the world of fiction writing and I’m blogging about it.

Wait, there’s more! “Write a lot and read a lot.” My mission is to read and review the 178 books on Uncle Stevie’s booklist in On Writing. I’ll be visiting every second-hand bookstore that I can find to stock up on those titles. I’m not a rich author. Yet.

Thank you for visiting and I hope that you enjoy my musings.
