I know I said I wouldn’t talk (much) about writing here, but I have to show you:
Look at these AMAZING card holders I found at work. 😊 😊 😊
I was grabbing a bottle of water from the break-room and there they were, just sitting there all alone on the counter, abandoned. I checked to make sure they didn’t belong to anybody (even let them sit for a couple hours) but when they were still there at the end of the day, I figured it was safe to call it – and I don’t feel bad AT ALL. These two beauties have inspired me to:
- Get going on my branding, because I want some sweet-ass cards to fill them
- Visualize my table when I finally attend a book expo as an author (gotta put my cards somewhere, right?)
- Realize I might need two different card-holders for a reason (details coming soon!)
So there. That’s it. This post was mostly about me getting a bottle of water from the break-room and then stealing stuff I found nearby. It just happened to be cool, amazing, super-inspiring, career-developing stuff. That I found next to a refrigerator. This is my life.
There are other, more exciting things that are happening, but I’m not at liberty to discuss. Actually, I can—I just don’t want to. Not now. Right now is the time for celebrating people who leave unwanted goods for lower totem-pole employees to grab and keep. And to use for inspiration to one day book a table at an author/writer/book convention/expo.
You know what they say: first come the cardholders. Then come the fans.
P.S. Shut up. They say this. And if they don’t, they will 😉
P.P.S. If you read AW and want the scoop on how the first draft of RTD is going, check out my Patreon page where I post snippets of my progress. That’s right, baby. Sneak Peeks of first draft crap. How are you not already there reading it?

It sounds like next to the fridge is like our coffee area at work. Whatever people don’t want, they put there, free to a good home! They are very cool cardholders. Woot for the steal!
Woot!! Now I know where to go shopping 🙂
I get it. I’m a sucker for trinkets and gadgets that advertise my writing… cards, card holders, book markers, etc.
I love them all! Now I’m on a hunt for more cool stuff…
Is it weird that I have cards but no card holders? Nah. Sounds about right, actually. 🙂
Oh, I wasn’t planning on the cardholders at all, but…love at first sight, you know? Plus, they totally inspired part of my branding so DOUBLE win 🙂
Those are gorgeous! Great find!
I know! I love them!!
