Writing Tips for the Practical-Minded #8: Because even I can't be practical-minded all the time...
I have confessed to you people that I write in a recliner. And I had described the first month of writing a new book in these terms: reading for a living. And there's truthfully a good dollop of thinking for a living thrown into the mix, so when I saw this photo, I had to share it with you. I wish I had taken it, but no. I got it from icanhascheezburger.com. Enjoy!
Mary Anna Evans has degrees in physics and engineering, but her heart is in the past. Her series character, Faye Longchamp, lives the exciting life of an archaeologist, and Mary Anna envies her a little.
Faye Longchamp's growing list of adventures include Artifacts, Relics, Effigies, Findings, Floodgates and, coming in October, Strangers.
Mary Anna is a co-founder and board member of the Anhinga Writers' Studio.
