When my mom passes books down to me they can be super random. I wonder sometimes about the aspects of my mom’s brain that I obviously know nothing about, because she can read Tale of Genji one day and a fluffy romance the next. I’ve obviously inherited this from her, but it’s super weird to see it in cold hard print! Like looking at yourself in the mirror and suddenly realizing that…yes, there I am! ...

I have a number of “fancier” pens but this one is my go-to. Twsbi Eco medium nib with Diamine Moon Dust. Dark enough to look conservative, but sparkly if you care to examine it. ...

When the temperatures dipped down into the 40s I said oh no. My husband, the New Englander, said oh good the flowers will love it. So I went out to enjoy the daffodils. But I had to bundle up with an extra jacket 😂. ...

New desk arrangement! Just in time for spring. What you don’t see is the terrible Japanese essay in front of me. Ugh. Why does writing a page take me two hours? ...

My makeshift standing desk. And I must not be getting enough snow because I’m turning to YouTube for more. No, that’s not Gojō Satoru waving at me, nope, definitely not. #winter #newengland #AmWriting #writersofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #healthyliving #standingdesk #newenglandliving #amediting #snow #snowfall #gojosatoru #jujutsukaisen ...

I have always loved shadows, especially really long, skinny, ghostly shadows. I used to stare at my own shadow as I walked to and from school. At those times of day, they were long and skinny like this one, except that this one was taken at 1:22 pm. What a difference latitude makes! I would never have guessed back in those Hawaii days that this would someday be my view. #hawaiimemories #kamaaina #shadows #winter #newengland #newenglandliving ...

Stole my daughter’s drawing table for a few minutes and got to work in natural light for once. It’s amazing how important the direction that your desk faces can be, especially on short winter days. Just a few minutes of not squinting and avoiding shadows really cheered me up. ☀️ 👍 ...

A meditative cup of tea for my writing session. Organic assam from The Tea Spot. Go slow, is what I’m thinking right now. #amwriting #amediting #tea #goslow #slowproductivity #tortoisenothare #focus ...

Turn up the sound! Love the sound of falling snow. Zero degree temperatures. Can you believe that there are animals out there in the woods, totally ready for this? Magical! #snow #snowfall #quiet #winter #coldweather #peaceful #newenglandweather #newengland #babyitscoldoutside ...

Today’s ambience video choice, courtesy of Sound Forest. It’s a little early for me to be sick of winter, but there you go. This is what I need right now. Big writing day today! #view #sunshine #ocean #ambience #amwriting #amwritingfiction #writersofinstagram #writerslife #tiredofwinter ...

This is my response to the dreaded “feels like” on the weather app. Right now it “feels like” 11 degrees. No thanks. #winter #winterweather #coldweather #newenglandweather #newenglandwinter #warmandcozy #hygge #hyggehome ...

I ordered some yuzu from Frog Hollow Farm in Brentwood, CA and then didn’t know what to do with it. Discovered that you can add the zest to lots of things, even soba noodles! 😋 #foodie #japanesefood #japanesefoodlover #yuzu #winterfood ...

It must be January! A nice snowfall for the end of Christmas and the beginning of Epiphany. I’m loving the hush. Hoping to get a lot of writing done today while I put away the Christmas tree. ...

Happy New Year! 🎆
.
I took a little social media break in late 2021. I occasionally scrolled through a few posts but mostly stayed away. I thought about removing social media from my life entirely. But I kind of like seeing what people are up to, and as a writer I spend way too much time alone in my own head.
.
So I’m back, but in a limited way. Because as you can see, there are other demands on my time.

Eating at my desk today, but feeling happy! I have such a cozy work corner, I’m super lucky. Of course, it’s cluttered, but hey…empty desk=empty mind, right? 😉 if you have a great workspace (or if you know of one), please share!
