What one does when sick: Maeve Binchy to the rescue

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.

    Thank you Sandra – I’ll definitely watch these! I’m sorry you’re sick and I hope you feel better soon – Tudor (because if I don’t sign it, I’ll be rather unhelpfully labeled “Facebook User”)

      Thank you, Tudor! I’m such a sissy. I suspect I’m at the worst of it. x0x

    Maeve had so much to share and yet remained a very private person. Have just finished reading her biography and there is so much we didn’t know that she had to share.

      Thank you, Jean Anthony. I didn’t know that there was a biography of her out. I would indeed be interesting!

    I did enjoy, very much. I hope you’re feeling better!

      Yes, thank you, Lilian. I’m 100% fine now. There’s nothing quite so wonderful as good health returning! I’m glad you enjoyed the Maeve B. videos.
