Every time I write a new book, I get myself a new mug.
Each book will involve numerous cups of coffee or tea and it’s important to have the right mug to humour the Muse.
This is the current mug. I got it while I was visiting Ontario last October at a pottery place called Pinecroft.
The Muse also enjoys teatime at Pinecroft.
And walking around the grounds.
Admiring the leaves is also very useful for inspiration.
Kissing the frog has been known to help the Muse.
But the surest way to inspire the Muse is tea with friends.
With this new mug and all the inspiration attached to it, the new book should be out by October. Wish me luck!
What a great idea and a lovely choice this time. Your photos are lovely. I love the fall colors. My book project is usually chocheting. Sometimes an afghan, sometimes a small project (hats this year) and I make dozens of the item. Good luck with your blook.
So I attach a MUG to a project and you CROCHET a project. Who knew? I wonder what other writers attach to their books . . .
I hope you post the crocheting that goes with your books!
I’m all about jewelry. I buy or make a piece for each project. I have a polar bear ring with a Canadian diamond for my diamond laundering novel – not yet released, I’m afraid. And I made a whole series of pieces for the Frost Family & Friends series each incorporating a trademark a sterling silver snowflake.
I love those “Frost Family” pieces.

My treat to myself for a new book is a bead for my writer’s journey bracelet. Love your photographs too.
This is a beautiful idea!
