Bibliophilic Bookworm

~ Notebook #10 ~ bibliophile - a person who loves or collects books. bookworm - a person devoted to reading or studying. Guilty as charged. When you can swoon at the olfactory interaction of books--burying your nose in them to inhale their great scent--then you (I) might have a book-loving problem. I can't get enough of them. [...]

Notebook 9 | Waving the White Flag

I'm baaaack! Yeah, I wasn't gone long and as I stated last week, you know what this quick return means. Details below. How 'bout that NaNoWriMo experiment?

Notebook 8 | . . .

Hooten. Finally actual scripting had [...]

Notebook 6 | Write-or-Flight, the Phone Awaits Also

Y'know, something normal people do all the time without quibble. [...]

Notebook 5 | Write-or-Flight, the Page Awaits

#ruckology #writeorflight When you have to be productive but you're on-the-go a lot, not at home in your study, not in your comfort zone, yet if you don't get those ideas out and down on paper you will lose them, possibly forever. I am usually loathe to do significant writing by pen and paper, but [...]

Notebook 4 | Random Deep Thought 2 . . .
