Doing research as I am writing a scene. A character is very proud of her new wood burning cook-stove.
Provides warmth and has an oven, as well as four burners.
I can imagine how much better this would be over using a fireplace to cook.

Got my first review on my newest book. - Very happy to have a good one, generally I don’t read reviews once they start rolling in. (It’s dangerous to one’s creativity.)
I believe every book has an audience. There is no guarantee when you write that you will be a best-seller. The thing that is guaranteed is that when you create something there are always those that will want to pick it apart. Some may love, some will hate it.
I haven’t figured out the reason yet. All I know is that I write from my heart and do my best. The rest is in God’s hands. I will keep telling my stories until I am done breathing. Then it will be someone else’s turn.

A vintage kitchen. I find these little peaks into the daily life of our ancestors fascinating.
Not sure what the kettle with a stick through the top would do but just makes me want to do more research.
Time to start cooking. :)
Lady Reading by a Window by: Thomas Benjamin Kennington circa 1900
The soft glow of the light through the window inspires me. Beginning a night of writing but wanted a glimpse into the past to get me going.
