There is absolutely nothing like a good rain storm to get me in the book mood. I love the sound of raindrops on the pavement, the pattering on the roof, and the splash as a car drives by. There is something about the music of water that penetrates my soul and just makes me smile. Sometimes it's a sad, slow smile.
I love to light a few candles and gaze out from my couch in the corner to see the water stream down my window and dance on my sidewalk. It's the perfect setting for me to work on my current novel or site and read.
And my mug is never far away.
