Well, what do you know. Here we are – Andrea and Ina.
There are times when the world comes together in a way that’s not quite miraculous and yet not simple coincidence. This blog is the result of one of those. Andrea and I met through a writer’s group on Facebook. I was fascinated in part because – though I had lived in Denmark when I was four – Andrea was the first person from Denmark I had conversed as an adult. Over time it became clear that we shared many things: we are writers; we are educators; we share ideals, and political interests, and an approach to communicating.
So here we are: this is our blog. If you’d like to know more about us as writers (in a formal way), please visit our About Us page.
We are still charting our way here, so both the look and organization of the blog may change over time. Among other things, we’ll be opening discussions on the writing process, sharing our writing lives, and providing many book reviews and interviews with authors, publishers, and other people who love words. Most of all, we want to hear from you – we love comments, and if you have an idea for a topic you’d like to discuss or see discussed, an author you’d love to see interviewed, a book that we must read, please share it with us!
Please watch for our Monday Coffees (something nice to wake up to!) and Connections (our Wednesday interviews and reviews). Our first interview will be with Regina Swint who’s a writer but who also serves in the U.S. Army; how do you sit out there in Afghanistan in the midst of war and keep up your writing?
Havin’ my coffee, and happy to be here. 🙂
Wanting a “subscribe via email” button, though…if you’re taking suggestions. 😉
de, what a terrific idea! thank you!
A terrific idea that I am sure will find a place in the hearts and minds of writers around the world! Raising my cup and wishing a HAPPY BIRTHDAY MONDAY COFEE …. YUMMM …
Raise my cup and wish HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MORNING COFFEE… There is a place waiting for this site in the hearts and minds of winters around the globe! Congratulations 🙂
Also thank you from me, Andrea.

Jeg synes at det er spændende koncept I er startet op med. Glæder mig til at læse mere.

Oh, thank you Joan – you did it!
We sure need all the best wishes in the world including from Sejer Island.

And Joan – we are and we will do our best.
Good to find you here. I look forward to you posts..
Thank you Amanda. We’ll do our best! I hardly can’t wait for that interview with Regina to be published here tomorrow. Andrea
Warm Midwestern (USA) wishes to you both! I look forward to many more Monday Coffees in the future!
Thank you Amy!
How exciting! Here you are! This is a lovely page, and I’m always in for coffee and poetry.
Thank you, Sara, for joining us! Coffee is way more fun with more people 🙂
Best of luck with your adventure Ladies! I may be an infrequent visitor, but that’s just a matter of semantics. I’ll be around when I can. Love the concept and the power of two. That seems to be catching on!
