Morning glory

Every morning there are routines and rituals. Coffee, feeding the magpies, getting dressed – not necessarily in that order! – and doing a little writing.

For some reason the morning is my most productive time. Before dawn, even, which isn’t hard at this tail end of daylight savings time.

Often I’ll get into a frenzy and an hour will go by as I pour out my heart. Some news story, some Internet conversation, maybe a blog post, and sometimes even some real actual writing.

And then the rest of the day goes by in interruptions and procrastinations and things that need to be done.

I don’t begrudge the magpies a bit of my time. They sing so beautifully, and are so grateful for a bit of cat kibble. More than the cat is, for sure.

And their glory lifts my heart; these wild creatures coming to me and singing their harmonies.

life, writing ,

Britni Pepper has always enjoyed telling stories. About people, places and pleasures. Her schoolmates loved listening to her stories about princesses and pirates and dragons, and once she looked up to find the principal looking on. "No, no, don't stop, Britni," he said. "I want to hear what happens next!" What happened next was university, a job in the travel industry, and a career of travelling the world meeting the most fascinating people. Britni has travelled to thirty of the world's nations and loves making up stories about fascinating people doing interesting things in exotic places. No longer tales about princes and wizards, but her stories are just as much fantasy as ever.
