  1. “Never underestimate the power of a good cup of tea.” Damn straight. There’s sometimes more power in a good cup of tea than in all the oceans of the world. 🙂

    Also, penultimate is a fantastic word. One of my characters stirred a little at “making strangers,” but he hasn’t given me anything solid yet. Here’s hoping he changes his mind.

    • You don’t realize it, especially if you drink tea very often (you start to think the English are merely exaggerating), until you have a day when you are just walking around feeling like the living dead and all ill and depressed and then you drink tea and it’s like – sunshine, hallelujah chorus, what is this sorcery?

      I hope your character continues to stir.

  2. Making Strangers was the perfect prompt for chapter 4 of Asteroid Rake. I’m already looking forward to the next prompt to see how my protagonist will respond to his current situation! https://quest4peas.wordpress.com/2015/01/22/asteroid-rake-ch-4/

  3. I’ve been baking a lot lately, “famous secret” reminded me of cookies.
