  1. Reading books that make them sound smart at dinner parties. : ) Good list!

  2. I’ve dreamed of an office overlooking the ocean.

  3. Great list. I’m with you on the office looking over the lake but would change the office to a log cabin. Starting each day by chopping wood, then brewing coffee in one of those old coffee pots on a big old stove before settling down to a day of free flowing writing… bliss!

      Hi Kay, thanks so much for commenting. I love the old coffee pots or percolators, they make the best coffee. I’m not sure I’d want to chop wood (lol) but a log cabin sounds dreamy. Make sure you stop back again, within the next week or so I’ll be posting an author interview and book giveaway. 🙂
