Today

1. Make tea.

2. Set flowers on the table.

3. Remember to love the quiet morning.

4. Write. For a while I’ve been slapping down ideas, most landing splish-splash or scattered, trying to keep faith that if I kept slapping down more words, raking away others, something would start to look good. Yesterday a few phrases glimmered and my faith feels stronger. Though there’s a long long way to go.

  1. Jeannine, I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your book! I am moving in something like four days, and I went to the library to pay off my fines and turn things in. And there was your book! So I grabbed it anyway, and ignored all the packing to read it. So fascinating!

  3. Rose! Thank you, during such busy (chaotic?) days for grabbing Borrowed Names and taking the time to read and tell me you enjoyed it.
    Moving, especially with children, is hard, and I’m glad you found a few quiet moments. Good luck with all — I look forward to hearing how the settling in goes.

  5. I adored BORROWED NAMES, and recently gave it as a just-because gift for a dear friend. She loved it, too, no suprrise; and in turn, purchased it for another of her friends, who then bought copies for all 5 of her (grown) daughters. And so it is that the Jeannine Atkins fanbase grows. 🙂
    Hope this weekend’s efforts brings you lots of glimmery phrases.

  7. Melodye, I love those just-because gifts and thanks so much for choosing Borrowed Names as one, and spreading the word about it! It makes my morning to think of someone giving copies to five daughters!
    If I get one or two glimmery words lined up I’ll be happy!

  13. *sings*
    “White choral bells
    upon a slender stalk
    Lilies of the Valley deck my garden walk . . .”
    Have faith. Keep going. Something good will unfold itself.
