on my desk monday

Writing supplies!

I'm trying to write my new novel "Return to Sky" which means I need hair clips to hold back my growing-out bangs (I chose ones with goldfish to bring me luck!) and candied ginger. All my novels have been fueled by a steady ingestion of candied ginger. I usually eat the Trader Joe's brand but for some reason my local Trader Joe's has been sans candied ginger lately...which means I've resorted to Whole Foods and their expensive Australian version. Sigh. Hopefully, this will at least last me a chapter or two!

I always ate rolls of "Smarties" candies when having to write reports, etc.... I will have to give candied ginger a try next time!

BTW, I removed my previous post due to a typo:)

Sweet writing supplies!

Good luck! I love that you need a steady supply of sweet ginger to keep you going. And those clips are so cute!

I *LOVE* Trader Joe's stuff, but there aren't any close by us. My uncle in California sends us boxes of Joe-Joe cookies every Christmas.
I've never heard of candied ginger before, but it sounds yummy!

Do you have a hopeful release date for "Return to Sky?" Me, my daughter, and many friends are anxiously awaiting for it!

Thanks, everyone for your encouragement! If I am able to keep "Return to Sky" on schedule, it will be published in the Fall of 2012. But don't hold me to that!
