At long last, the votes are in and tallied, and the winner of my copy of The Writer’s Desk is . . .

7.  The Mists of Writing (90 words)

For me – writing is a little like that long forgotten actress’s footsteps as she moves into droplets of  perfume scented air.  I  hear her light step as I spray the mist of another world into the air before me and then I walk straight in, and I am gone there. The scents and stories settle around me and cling to my skin. The characters lurk about the desk, sitting on old books and sniffing at empty, long stemmed glasses. I sit at our desk for a while. Then I write.

For those of you who haven’t met Cecelia, you are in for a treat if you swing by her farm blog, The Kitchen’s Garden:

I am a New Zealander living in America. For ten years I was a High School Teacher of Drama in New Zealand. Then I travelled to work in Europe. Six years ago I relocated from my job in the film industry in London to the Midwest USA. Together my husband and I are developing our property into a small sustainable farm. We are passionate about good clean food and healthy animals and healthy land. Being frugal, and bucking the consumer trend sounds scary but is actually fun. It is simple. And we really love our simple life. It is a good life.

Celi shares the view from her window, the aromas of her kitchen, delicious recipes for onion jam and carrot cake, and the antics of the farm’s residents ~ cows, sheep, pigs, dogs, cats, chickens, roosters, peacocks, and peahens.

It’s a Full House . . . so they’re adding an addition ~ an outrageously wonderful granny flat/guest house/ writer’s retreat.

Congratulations, Celi!  I’ll contact you for your Snail Mail address so I can put your prize in the post!  In the meantime . . . here’s your crown!


Thanks to everyone who submitted, read, spread the word, commented, and voted!  You rock.

Aah . . . that’s better!
