For some odd reason I found a great place to write on Saturday mornings, if I'm working that is. Thanks to a wonderful thing called public transportation I'm in Copenhagen an hour before I have to be at work. What to do? Coffee - of course. The worst of bad chain coffee shops, in Denmark, has turned out to be my little sanctuary for 45 minutes once or twice every month. I wouldn't be caught dead drinking their awful designer lattes with synthetic flavored syrups, but they make a decent regular coffee and their carrot scones are awesome.

It's strange how much you can get done in 45 min, especially with all the noise from the espresso makers, kids and just general loud people... I got the outline for a chapter done, a timeline and notes for an original story I've been thinking about.

The great thing about working in a SF/F book store is that you are always surrounded by magic...and I need that magic to work for me lol.

P.S.: The banner in this post is my first banner ever...okay not true I just changed it. The one that was on here before was my first, but I didn't like it.

My First Award...

The amazing Missie from
The Unread Reader just passed along this Award to me. Thank you so much, søde (lol it means sweetie in Danish).

Here are the rules: Recipient must post their award on their blog mentioning the person that gave it to them. Then they must pass it on to 10 others & leave a comment on each of their blogs to let them know that they have won. You must also post 10 things that make you happy.

There are only 8 on my list because I don't really follow a lot of blogs.

And the award goes to:
Brandywine Battlefields-Living, Writing, and Homes (For just being a wonderful and supportive woman. I love you dearly, Yankee mom). Lindsay Jo Photography (Sweet, loving and beautiful person). Txone (My awesomesauce beta). There's No Place Like... (My American Sis. Fantastic writer and amazing artist).
Randomness at its Finest (Goddess and talented writer).
Kristin likes fiction (I love this blog. Great place for book recs).
The Unread Reader (I know Missie gave me the award and thus already has one, but she's done such a great job with her blog so she's getting another award).
Be Careful What You Wish For (I'm sending Pencula over with this award lol).

Hmm 10 things that make me happy? Honestly, it's all probably going to sound very cliché. They're not listed in order. - here goes:

- Knowing my dad is no longer suffering and is off somewhere having beers with Zeewriter's dad.

- Of course getting this award. I didn't even know there was such a thing as blog awards.

- My wonderful job (I never thought I would find a job as amazing as the one I have).

- My fanfic girls. I love you hard!

- Books!

- Remembering my Bff's 6 year old son lending me a teddy bear to cuddle with on our trip to Norway, and her 12 year old daughter giving me a home-made card (a mini pic of the New Moon movie poster) telling me how happy she was I decided to go on the trip with them (she signed the card "Team Edward").

- Pear pie and eating ice cream with a fork.

- My trip to NYC.

- My brother stopping by the shop yesterday with a cup of coffee for me.

- Getting a gift in the mail from my American family.
