Second to that are the perks of being self-employed--setting my own hours, not having to commute, peace and quiet. (less)

Technology and me

Okay. I set out today to post a short blog with a photo quote from my upcoming book, Before the Dawn, followed by some discussion of the London Blitz in World War II, and I was going to end it by adding a link to a book of maps on the subject that I, being something of a map nerd, am going to add to my 'to read' list.

That was approximately seven hours ago. And you'll probably notice that there is Read more of this blog post »

“Love makes fools of us all, I fear.”
Candace Camp, The Courtship Dance

“I'm sorry."

"Sorry? For what?" He straightened and moved a bit closer, sounding honestly puzzled.

"I am not much of a conversationalist, I'm afraid. I am not used to - to any of this. You must find this terribly..."

"Terribly what?"

"Boring." She faced him squarely then, for she refused to shy away from difficulties.

He let out a short bark of laughter. "Boring? My dear Miss Bainbridge, boring is definitely something you are not."

"I don't know how you can say that," she retorted somewhat crossly. "There is really no need for you to be polite. I haven't said any of the things I should. I have been blunt and no doubt impolite. I have never danced before with any man I haven't known since I could toddle. And now I cannot even come up with the most commonplace remark."

His chuckle was low and warm [...].

"Oh, you know what I mean." Really the man was maddening. "You shouldn't laugh at someone who is admitting their grievous social ineptitude."

"What else should I do?" His teeth glinted in the darkness. "Let me assure you that I have danced with a great many girls whom I have not known since childhood. And I have heard a great many commonplace remarks. It is, quite frankly, a relief to enjoy the quiet and cool of the garden without hearing that the weather is quite nice this evening or that the breeze is most refreshing or that the party is so enjoyable.”
Candace Camp, A Winter Scandal
