Top Drawer News — The bread, the pumpkin, the routine, and the comma

The bread, the pumpkin, the routine, and the comma… Sounds like the beginning of a joke. Or maybe a fairy tale.

Once upon a time, a weary writer, dizzy from an overdose of bread and pumpkin, tripped over a routine comma and fell into the dark world of misplaced punctuation.

Or else the bread, the pumpkin, the routine, and the comma were three stops on the author express this week. Yes, four subjects and three stops. That sounds more like the fairy tale in which we live. 🙂 Toot! Toot! Let’s get the train moving.

Once upon a time… Errr, that is, on Tuesday, we baked breakfast bread over on Sloane Taylor’s blog and talked about commas. Sloane is a great editor and we had a lively discussion about this topic during the edits of our upcoming mystery novel release, Murder by the Books. Yeah, we’re word nerds. 🙂

On Friday, we created a pumpkin cheese ball for Divine Magazine. No discussion was involved and no commas were misplaced. 🙂  Click here for the recipe.

Finally, we explored the transformation of routine in this week’s book bubble. The world of routine is not always dark. Until it is.

What dark worlds have you been exploring?
