Today is a day for mustering courage in applying for writing jobs…which requires more writing. There’s only one type of tea I turn to when I need a jolt, but not a “big” jolt – oolong. As if by serentipi"tea", my Canton Tea Club delivery arrived.

Granted, I’d already reviewed it and done a write up for this offering, but it was one I couldn’t help tearing open again. It was almost as perfect as her older sister. That and it was as tart and buttery as I remembered the first time.

If you would like to learn more (as well as see my personal history with Dan Congs), go here: http://www.cantonteaco.com/blog/2012/10/canton-tea-club-week-3-xing-ren-dan-cong/

In the meantime, I’ve got a rant about steampunk to write, and jobs to apply for.

Yay.

Update: The steampunk blog in question, if you want: http://www.lazyliteratus.com/1834

I should…uh…probably apply for jobs now.

Much courage to you! (My perpetual whine is that it’s not fair being a writer in a world that no longer reads.)

Good luck with the job applications :) I believe that writers are important people even in this day and age, if you can write something that inspires even just one person then it’s all been worth while.

@gmathis – Actually, that’s not quite true. Children these days are reading at a far greater level that most adults over 30. Problem is, I don’t know how to write for young adults…er…yet.

@ch3rryprinc3ss – Thankee, dear. I believe so as well. Or at least, I have to believe it for my own sanity. Heh.

Wishing you all the best on the hunt!

Thank ya, dear.

Good point. Thanks to a librarian buddy, I’m rediscovering YA literature and enjoying it immensely.

@Gmathis – Anything by John Green is magical.

Profile

Bio

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
