Embarkations

Hi friends,
My daughter Bea has created a new blog, Adventures in Hats, which is about hats, yes, and about writing, and the writing life. Just looking at her illustrations makes me smile. I hope you can check it out.

  1. I will do that. Now.

    • Dear Carol,
      I might have figured this out. If you click on the red words “Read more…19 more words” it will take you to her blog and, I hope, let you follow her. If you didn’t actually go there, but read it on my blog, it probably wouldn’t accept your e-mail because you are already following Writing Between the Lines.
      Fingers crossed!

  2. So creative, but it won’t accept my email address to follow.

    • Dear Carol,
      Thank you so much for visiting. It’s odd that it wouldn’t accept your address. I wish I knew more about the technical side of this. ( Bea was the one who helped to set me up with my blog.)

  3. loved your blog. can’t wait to start getting them. hope this comment goes through. the last one said I didn’t have your correct email.

    • Hi Linda,
      My friend Carol also had some problems with the e-mail. I’m not sure, but I might have figured this out. If you click on the red words “Read more…19 more words”at the end of the reblog, it will take you to Bea’s blog and, I hope, let you follow her. If you didn’t actually go there, but read her post on my blog, it probably wouldn’t accept your e-mail because you are already following Writing Between the Lines.
      Fingers crossed!

  4. So creative, I loved it. Thank you dear Naomi, have a wonderful day, love, nia

    • Thank you for the visit, Nia. Her drawings just make me smile, and they really capture Bea’s personality.
      Love,
      Naomi

  5. Hilarious! Look forward to seeing what adventures Bea has in store for us! What a talent.

    • Hi Suzanne,
      She is finishing up a steampunk novel about an airship and is working on a graphic novel, so we might get bits and pieces of those, and a peek into student life at Stanford. Thanks so much for visiting Bea’s blog.

  6. cute! how old is she?

    • Hi Darla,
      Bea is a college sophomore, 19 years old. She is polishing up a steampunk novel and working on a graphic novel. I just love the expression in her drawings–it really captures her personality. In my post Written in Stone, you can see the resemblance, especially when we are in the hat store, trying on hats.
      Thanks so much for visiting, and taking the time to comment.

  7. A new blog to follow! I love her cartoons…my daughter keeps a cartoon book of house quotes (basically, funny & random things that get said at her house)…what a fun way to tell a story!

    • Hi Scilla,
      Thanks so much for visiting. I love that your daughter keeps a cartoon book for saving memories. I used to have a Bea and an Eli book, and I might have sketched a couple of drawings, but mostly I just wrote down in words the things they said that I wanted to remember forever, but which I knew would fade in a few days as knew cute things filled my head.
      Bea is polishing up a steampunk novel with an airship that is a prominent story thread, and she is working on a graphic novel. Thank you for supporting her, Scilla.

  8. Such a talented lady! The drawings are delightful and precious. 😉

    • Hi Tess,
      Thank you so much for visiting. We just picked Bea up at the airport, and she was very grateful to my friends for stopping by. Thank you, as always, for the kind word.

  9. I love her drawings…so much talent! The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. 🙂

    • Hi Jill,
      Thanks so much! You are too kind. I’m sure Bea will make much better use of her talents than I have gotten around to, and I’m very proud of her.

  10. Sounds fun, Naomi. Thanks!

    • Hi Kathy,
      Bea is posting weekly on her new blog, and somehow managing to stay on top of her NaNoWriMo word count. Thanks for checking it out, and taking the time to share your response.

  11. Hi there Bea. You tell a good story in pictures… wishing you good luck and many adventures.

  12. Looks like fun!

  13. I sure will and this is a promising start. So lively! 🙂 Hooray for Bea! 🙂

    • Hi Jamie,
      Bea is working on her third manuscript, and won the Stanford Boothe prize for freshman writing last year. I’m glad to see her venturing into the Blogosphere. Thank you for giving her such a warm welcome!

      • That is wonderful news, Naomi. Please say “congrats” for me. I think she comes by her talent honestly, as the saying goes. 🙂

      • Dear Jamie,
        Thank you. I certainly will pass that on. Here is why I am wandering around with a smile on my face:

        Naomi, the postof yours that scheduled to go up tomorrow has had me in tears so many time. Just lovely. Lovely!

        Many blessing for a happy Thanksgiving and know you and your work are valued and on my gratitude list.

        Warmest regards,

      • Dear Jamie,
        I do know that you can relate–your son sounds like a sweetheart.
        Thank you for all the encouragement you have given me, and now my daughter as well! I know you touch so many lives and are a powerful force of goodness.
        Best wishes to you and your son for a very happy Thanksgiving.
        Love,
        Naomi

  14. What a fun first post Naomi! I look forward to following her adventures 😉

    • Dear Madhu,
      Thank you so much! She told me she is looking forward to following you too. She has a special interest in history, travel, and photography, so I know she will love your blog as much as I do.
