friday 5: engine engine number 9

play along here 1. What are your primary considerations as you decide what to wear on a typical day? During hockey season… is it a New York Rangers game day, as it is today? Because if it is, it means wearing a Rangers shirt and/or hat, and my Henrik Lundqvist jersey during the actual game. […]

play along here 1.What musical instruments have you played? I think I have a complex when it comes to music. My dad had perfect pitch, could play any instrument he put hands to.

play along here 1. What did you do too much of this week? Work. I’ve had back-to-back manuscripts to edit, long books with short suspenses. Plus, I’m working on another novel of my own, so it’s been all about time management. 2. What did you not do enough of this week? Read. But that’s, at […]

play along here 1. When did you last give (or serve) something you cooked to someone not in your residence? Oh, wow. It’s been a while. Since before the pandemic. The Christmas before, actually. I always make a ton of Christmas cookies, enough for us at home and enough for the worker bees in the […]
