Sometimes I think about things that have absolutely nothing to do with Mennonites and drinking, or with novels I am writing/planning.

When that happens, I might also want to write about these things.Those are writings that belong in the Enchanted Cottage Notebooks. The enchanted cottage is the work space out in my back yard. It’s a good ten paces from the patio where I enjoy cocktails in the summer. It’s a nice place to think and write.

The Notebooks are empty right now but they might fill out with time. I am interested in a lot of things other than Mennonites and cocktails and the particular novel and I am writing. We’ll see. I’ll be sure to let you know.
