Weekend Coffee Share – Sleeping through the morning

Organised by Diana (Part Time Monster).

Organised by Diana (Part Time Monster).

If we were having coffee, I would first catch up on your news as I sank into my favourite arm chair. You would no doubt roll your eyes, which I would miss because mine are closed, and lecture me about taking on too much. I don’t mind the lectures, they’re part of the game now. We both know I’m not going to change.

You might ask about the little cloud which has been following me around of late, and I would spare you the details of my personal dramas. I’d likely still have my eyes closed, but you’d have my full attention. The more we talked, the smaller the cloud would become.

Now that the the caffeine has hit my system, and I have my second wind, I would peer at you from beneath my lashes and we would laugh – I’ve never been a morning person.

We would talk about the month long blog tour I’m taking part in with fifteen other fantasy writers in June. I’d admit to feeling like a fraud because this is my first jaunt into fantasy writing. You would argue that I’ve been reading fantasy novels for years, so that qualifies me.

I would admit to having no news about the developments on my site, because I’m still in the planning stage. But I have a few ideas so we would no doubt talk about those.

I would tell you I enjoyed writing the piece of flash fiction for Silver Threading, and managed to use the line ‘the alligator was unexpected’. When I assured you it’s less than five hundred words, you would ask where you can find it, so I’d point you here. 

Now that I’m feeling almost human again, we would take a walk in the garden, because it’s beautiful outside. We would chatter incessantly, like the birds we hear in the distance, and set the world to rights.

Then I would bid you farewell, because I’m working this afternoon. At some point in the day I would head over to Diana’s place to catch up with my other friends.


Thanks for stopping by.




Sounds like a fun meeting and a busy month. Never sure if I should tell someone to enjoy work. Doesn’t seem to match up at times.

I’m always in awe of how many writing projects you manage to juggle! I look forward to checking out the blog tour in June 🙂

That blog tour does sound fun! I think you are qualified, look at all the fantasy related research you did for A to Z!!

The blog tour sounds exciting! You’re a busy (and very productive) bee! 🙂

    I’ve never taken part in a tour of its size, so I’m really looking forward to it. I get information through daily on the authors I will be featuring so it’s taking a little juggling, but it’s worth it!

    Which reminds me, I know you have a few things in the pipeline during the summer so, when you’re ready, I’d love to do a feature of you on Writing Room 101 🙂

      I was thinking that since Fantasy falls into the scope of my blog, maybe you’d like an interview for your first Fantasy release? Let me know! And I also have something else in mind to ask you (do you prefer FB messages or email?). I’ll let you know when I’m ready! It’s very nice of you to offer to do a feature on me! I’m hoping to organize things soon! 🙂

      That would be terrific! I’d love to do an interview 🙂 You can either PM me on Facebook or email – either is fine. I’ll look forward to working with you on your feature – organizing new releases can be tough, but it’s also fun and exciting!

Thank you for yet another great start to the weekend. I love the easy conversational tone of your writing. What a delightful morning we’ve spent together!

Thanks for reminding me that it’s Saturday! I knew it in some ways, but now I really know it.

I enjoyed catching up with you, and I hope the cloud is gone. It’s interesting to know that you didn’t think of yourself as a Fantasy author, because I definitely see your work as a fit in that genre.

I am a grandma now, which I think you saw on FB. Little Lilli is the sweetest baby girl in the universe.

I sympathize – I am not a morning person either. Never was, never will be. Thank goodness for caffeine!

Really enjoyed your flash fiction story! Very creative way to work in that sentence. 🙂

Sounds like a busy time—and no worries, I am not a morning person in the least, either. Hope you got to enjoy the beautiful day! 🙂

I love our coffees. We always take time for flowers and resting and chatting. Not true the rest of my week. I need these get-togethers.

Mornings are often overrated.. maybe we should have afternoon coffee?
I’m looking forward to hearing more about this June Fantasy Writer blog tour! I need to start looking at more blog tours, networking more… uhm, yeah, you’re not the only one who bites off too much at a time. You know that picture from The Cat in the Hat? Where he’s standing on a ball, balancing about a billion things at the same time? Yup, that’s me. 🙂
Thanks for the coffee!

    Ha! I’m right there with you 🙂 And afternoon coffee sounds perfect! I’m excited about the tour, and can’t wait to release the novella. I’m nervous though. I think the reason I avoided writing fantasy for so long is that it’s my favourite genre to read and I was terrified I wouldn’t do it justice! Networking helps, and the wonderful support and encouragement. That’s invaluable 🙂

I'd love to hear from you.
