  1. Plotting out new story ideas is the best. And bookstores--if I'm looking for a specific book, I prefer shopping online, but there's nothing more fun than browsing in a bookstore.

    1. I know, I love it too!!! it makes me feel so creative and artsy and BRILLIANTLY SMART, which lasts all of six words into the actual rough draft...haha! But it is fun. :)

  2. Mmmm new recipes, Thanksgiving, bookstores... sounds like a great October! I was enjoying some lovely gnarled sycamore trees this morning -- the tops are just beginning to change color.

    1. I'm looking forward to the rest of this month! So far it's been brilliantly fall-ish and full of beautiful colours.
