I was going to let yesterday’s post, For Book Lovers (he he he), stand a few days. But two things came to my attention yesterday and I wanted to share them..
One, Karen found a book perfume that is much more affordable than Karl Lagerfeld’s new Paper Passion. (which is sure to bust anyone’s budget)
What Karen discovered is a line of highly unusual scents by Demeter. There are some really neat ones, sure to bring a smile.
You can browse them by clicking here.
Better yet (as the above is the amazon link), here is the actual Demeter website with oodles of neat scents.
Thanks, Karen! (she posted the link in comments, but I’m adding it here so everyone sees it)
They offer everything from Paperback (only $20) to Rain, Thunderstorm, and Wet Garden. Those three really appeal to me.
There’s also Salt Air, Laundromat (he he he… fresh linens, anyone?), and even Dirt.
I chuckled about the Dirt perfume.
Then I remembered how much I loved the smell of rich, loamy earth when I worked in my Munich garden.
So who knows?
Dirt might be an incredible scent for garden lovers. Or anyone who ever enjoyed walking through a wood after rain. Such a smell is alluring, hinting at older times, fairytales, and a more earthy primal world..
I could go for a perfume that would transport me back to where I took the above photo. It’s just such a magical site as described above. And, no, this time I won’t say where it is.
Although, I will share that it’s in Scotland.
This is one of those extra-special places that needs to be left alone. Those meant to find it, will be drawn there. If you’d like to read my original post mentioning this place (there’s a sacred well there), just click here.
If you were hankering for book perfume yesterday, now you can try Demeter’s Paperback.
And lots more, depending on personal taste. I believe there are even body lotions.
Now for something writerly.
Something else that caught my eye yesterday…
Editing is heavy on my mind these days, mired in revisions as I am.
Editing is also very, very important. Which is why I might fuss and fret about the Revisions Dragon, but at the end of the day, I know he needs to make his visits.
All writers need editing.
See here if you have any doubts..
Terry’s guest, Mel/Nell, presents a wonderful and concise run-down of what writers need to watch for when polishing their work. It’s probably the best piece on editing I have seen in a long time. Maybe ever.
You can read it here.
Speaking of editing, it’s that time again. I need to don my armor, grab my sword, and head into the cave.
Before I leave you..
