Summer Windows and Winners!

Congratulations to Irene L, the winner of our giveaway of HOW I LEARNED TO FALL OUT OF TREES by Vincent X. Kirsch!

We are on the last days of a busy summer. We at Teaching Authors thought you might enjoy seeing what our working space looks like!

This is my workdesk. I'm working on revisions as I take Harold Underdown and Eileen Robinson's Kid Book Revisions Summer School 2019. It's a lot of reading and writing and more reading and writing!




But, I have help! This is Apollo.




We are best companions.




But sometimes, all this reading and writing can be exhausting! Apollo knows what to do.





When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name:
His ineffable effable
Effanineffable
Deep and inscrutable singular Name. 
(The Naming of Cats, by TS Eliot) 

I hope you are enjoying your summer days!

My best companion in writing is Ira. He's a task master...but also can be caught in rapt contemplation. Ha!
