Photo: Heart of Stone
When I opened one of the windows in my office and a stack of papers on my desk was disturbed by a sweet, rose-scented breeze, I settled matters with this little hand-carved Italian alabaster heart.
Yes, I know; alabaster is a white stone. But it turns out that alabaster's porous nature allows it to be dyed just about any color when it is brought to a certain temperature. I like this candy-apple red. Have you ever seen a more perfect paperweight for a romance writer? Well, apart from a RITA statuette, I mean?
I'm planning to do some heavy-duty romance writing today, so I'm signing off now and will blog at you again tomorrow. Everyone have a lovely Thursday.
