A Little Intrigue with Your Coffee?

Strange small town? Check. Characters who run the gamut from wacky to lovable to sinister? Check. Coffee? Oh, most definitely.

The odd happenings of Applewood, Connecticut, are chronicled in the online serial Sketches from the Café Confictura. In Episode
3, “Roscoe Belesprit’s 9½ Rules of Writing,” it becomes clear just how badly Roscoe’s once-gifted writing salon students have been affected by the 11/5 quake. They need Roscoe’s help, and to get it, they’re willing to do whatever it takes . . . no matter how ridiculous.

Bonus: Check out the new "To-Go"
writing tips following the post!

PL Takes a Little Time…

Pollyanna's Library is a blog that offers ideas about what to read or watch tonight. With so much great new and old entertainment available at the click of a button (or lots of unnecessary clicks of buttons, if you're like me with remotes and laptops), fun books, movies, and TV shows are easier to access than ever before.

If you’re in the market for a novel or short story that walks that line between entertaining and thought-provoking (and maybe throws in a little time travel), my newest post encourages you to “Take a Little Time with the Stories of Jack Finney.” Finney’s a great pick especially now, with a dose of humor, hope, and nostalgia.
