On Tour

April 22, 2008

A proper desk
Posted by Meg Tilly

I know that many of the readers of this blog are already published authors and people in the book world.  But I imagine that there are quite a few followers of this blog, who perhaps hope to be published and what-not, and perhaps there is a reader or two.  So, I thought, in the spirit of building community and breaking down the gap between the mysterious world of the author and the rest of the world, that I would let you see how a right, proper writer’s desk should look.

On the off-chance that someone might think that is too much candy for one person to have managed to accumulate in the only two and a half days on tour.  I shall not sign my name.  I shall be…the mystery blogger!

Hmm…I wonder if they put our names at the bottom of these things.  I should have looked before I wrote this.

Oh well.

Oh, yum, Meg! Those of us on the Northern tour found our bliss in a Prince Rupert sweet shop which sold Walkers Licorice Toffees. Absolutely necessary to the creative process…

I’d keep a close eye on that stash if I were you - David has the “Jones sweet tooth” and will stop at nothing to satisfy it.  I know because I am his big sister and have the same sad affliction.

Oh, thanks a lot, Gail! She’s going to see me coming a mile away, now.

I’ve been doing a pretty good job of picking off her dinner plate but I may as well just give up on the candy right now.

No fair revealing trade secrets!

Theresa was also dispensing other goodies on our road trip, like apples and the now indispensible zinc lozenges to sweeting up the tongue before readings. Apparently, you’re either a believer or you’re not!
