I pride myself on never getting sick, but I’m sick now with a nasty cold. After a lovely bowl of chicken soup my husband Richard made (<3), I’ve retired to bed with my computer, watching YouTube videos on writing. 

Long ago, my daughter Carrie and I went to a Maeve Binchy talk at the International Festival of Authors in Toronto. The enormous theatre was packed, people sitting on the stairs. She was enchanting!

Later, I listened to an audio version of one of her novels while I was undergoing rather strenuous dental surgery, and I went though it like a breeze. Needless to say, I’m a Maeve Binchy fan. 

Here are two Maave Binchy YouTube videos on writing I discovered tonight, and I found them both delightful.
