Re: Reaching Out to Authors

I've written to authors whose creations I enjoy and appreciate. I did write a snail mail once. This was someone who lives in the same state as me, and she wrote a most amazing book, filled with wonder and magic. I'd never written to an author before, but her book was just so ... perfect. She answere...

This week's words are:

necklace, sunrise, potion

She walked along the beach at sunrise, carefully scanning for sea glass that she could use for a necklace or bracelet. Pausing to watch the colours in the sky change and brighten, she sipped at her coffee as if it was a magical potion. [44 words]
