New Desk Set Up (Important for Writers)

I used to have one of those treadmill desks, Gentle Reader. Sadly, when I moved into a small apartment it was not possible. I struggle to write fiction and exercise at the same time, but I can read and do lots of other stuff online while I move. So I have invented this rig-up that has a much smaller footprint.

So what do we have here?

So far, it’s working for me.

Book News:
The Horn Book says of Waistcoats & Weaponry: “…the well-wrought steampunk/supernatural setting provides a vibrant backdrop to Sophronia’s fast-paced adventures and witty banter, and her difficult dilemmas regarding possible career paths and matters of the heart add emotional depth.”

Quote of the Day:
“First of all, one should use Indian or Ceylonese tea. China tea has virtues which are not to be despised nowadays — it is economical, and one can drink it without milk — but there is not much stimulation in it. One does not feel wiser, braver or more optimistic after drinking it. Anyone who has used that comforting phrase ‘a nice cup of tea’ invariably means Indian tea.”
~ A Nice Cup of Tea (1946)
