"It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address."
You've Got Mail is a classic chick flick for good reason, and this quote is too true! I love fall in part because of school. I've always liked school, and that became especially true in college. There's something utterly exhilarating about the new beginning represented by a new school year. It's an opportunity to reinvent yourself (if such an intervention is desired), to start fresh, to get a running start into your best efforts. It's also nice that it's less hot and muggy, and I'm certainly not averse to pumpkin spice, even though some folks overdo it now and then.
This year, though, I'm largely excited because my school-age kid has been making me crazy and my preschooler is very excited to start school. I am looking forward to having more writing/editing/submitting/publishing time!!! I'm hoping to have an announcement or two by the end of the year. This involuntary sabbatical from writing has been nice in some ways, but I'm excited to get going again.
who am I?
My name is Mary-Celeste, but my friends call me M.C. I am a writer, wife, mother, amateur gardener, sourdough bread baker, n00b video gamer, Austen enthusiast, tabletop gamer, Trekkie, and generally cheerful human being. I write Regency romances and I post about it here (among other things). Thanks for stopping by!
