My most magical moment of winter is that first time I dig out my warm jacket and find a fiver folded up in the pocket from last March. #floridagirl #idontdoice #pocketchange #imrich

Instagram post 2176029768456154078_350620689 Fascinating and thought-provoking book talk tonight at @atlantahistorycenter where former US Attorney @kent_alexander and former Wall Street Journal reporter @kevinsalwen discussed their new book The Suspect, about Atlanta Olympics bombing suspect Richard Jewell. That’s my former @ajcnews colleague @bertroughton on the far left. Bert directed the paper’s coverage of the ‘96 Olympics. On the far right is former longtime @wsbtv news anchor John Pruitt. Packed house for an amazingly thoughtful panel discussion of a troubling episode in Atlanta history. Great to see so many former reporter pals in the audience. If you’re interested in books, the History Center has a great lineup of programs coming up! #booktalks #journalismmattersnowmorethanever #oldreportersneverdie

Instagram post 2175744893769586070_350620689 Fiction. It’s a messy business. You’re making up stories about made-up characters. Over the course of the year or so I spend with them, they become real—at least to me. They’re stubborn, ornery, unknowable, with motives and desires they don’t easily reveal. Damn you, fiction! (Shakes fist in air. Goes back to work.) #amwriting #authorsofinstagram #imakethisshitup

Look, a squirrel! Major distraction. On the other hand, I did finish writing a 🔥 sex scene today, so there’s that. #amwriting #authorsofinstagram #squirrelsnest #squirrelhollow #carriagehouse #alittlesexalittlemurder

Instagram post 2170496490089399148_350620689 Hey friends. This is why local elections matter. These five Florida dopes make up the county commission in Citrus County, not far from my home county of Pinellas. Because of their personal political agenda, they voted to deny funding for digital subscriptions to the New York Times for the county library system. They are the ultimate #floridaman. Please y’all, get out and vote today. Vote for enlightenment, equality and education. #soapboxrant

Instagram post 2169435847546482288_350620689 Hope you loved watching #merryandbrightmovie on @hallmarkchannel last night—or today. I’m the meantime, I’m writing away on my summer 2020 book—and plotting a stair runner for the Squirrel’s Nest, which is our under construction carriage house. I bought this beat up Oriental runner for $20 years ago from a SCAD student in Savannah. It’s 14.5 feet long. And then I found another similar runner at an estate sale yesterday, that’s 20 feet long. Thinking the longer runner will work for the first set of stairs, then the second, pictured here, which is about 6 inches wider, will work for the landing and the second set of stairs. In between writing today, I’ve been pinning DIY stair runner tutorials on Pinterest. If you want to see more of my inspiration for the carriage house, etc. check out my Pinterest boards. #squirrelsnest #squirrelhollow #diyhomedecor #vintagestairrunner #hoardingissues #amwriting
