Welcome to this week’s Romance Writer’s Weekly Blog Hop. If you’ve arrived from Brenda Margriet’s blog, hi, and thanks for joining me!
Brenda’s asked us all to share what’s in our bags. So with a little trepidation (because it can get scary in there) here goes!
I never go anywhere without it. I’d even go as far as to say I have a pathological fear of being stranded somewhere without a book. Like so many others I have about 200 unread books on there, just waiting for me to land on that desert island. Maybe one day!
NOTEBOOK & PEN
I’m an old fashioned kind of gal, so if I see some plot or character inspiration while I’m out, I like to be able to jot it down. That notepad is full of ideas and throwaway lines, ones that catch my fancy. And the older I get the more I need to write things down, otherwise I forget them!
This was given to me by a lovely reader and blogger at a signing event. It has the most delicious smell, and I take it everywhere with me.
BACH FLOWER REMEDY
This is supposed to calm me down when I get too stressed, except when I’m stressed I forget to use it. Doh!
I seem to be getting a collection of these. I have to keep the ones I use for work to put into my accounts. The rest, well I guess I’m just a train ticket hoarder!
Because I live in the UK!
PURSE / WALLET
It’s a big one, but it fits everything in. Notes, credit cards, receipts, they’re all in there and stuffed to the gills!
I was actually surprised to find so little in there. The reason for this is that yesterday I travelled to London for the evening, and had a good clean out before I left. I did come home with half a bottle of wine in there, but luckily for me and you, I took it out as soon as I got home. Otherwise this picture would paint a different story altogether!
Now let’s hop over to S.C. Mitchell’s blog to see what’s in his pockets, because I don’t think he carries a bag!. And when you’re done there, don’t forget to check out some of his books!
Until next time,
