Writing Utensils

So, confession time. I have a thing for hotel pens. I’m one of those people who is very particular about what I use to write with. It has to be a good pen. Not a gel pen, or a roller ball, or a felt tip pen. Not for longhand writing. I need a good ballpoint pen with a slim body and blue or black ink. I’ve found that hotel pens are the best!

On a trip out to CA a few years ago, I took home 3 pens from a resort in Temecula. Those are, by far, my favorites. I used the last of them just recently, and I was sad. I’ve also got a few from a Westin hotel and several from a JW Marriott. I love those too!

I’m headed for an overnight in Chicago this coming weekend, and we’re staying at a hotel we haven’t stayed at before. I hope they have good pens!!

Dreaming of Storylines

My new office space is working out splendidly! But I need a different chair. *cracks back*

Book two in the Elementals series is coming along, but for the first time, I’m worried it won’t be ready for release by the middle of May. I don’t like that. I seem to be stuck on one point, and it may seem like a little thing, yet, it’s killing me because I can’t get past it. So I’m going to set it aside for a few days, let it simmer, and work on something else. That usually helps. I’m super annoyed right now though, because I had a dream last night that I remember feeling very excited about. Like it was the answer to my problem, and I remember kind of nodding and thinking, “Yes, this is brilliant!” And of course, when I woke up, it disappeared. Bah. I wish I could record my dreams and play them back the next day. I think I’ve lost a lot of great ideas in my sleep!
