Time on Tuesday: Big Ben

This week I’m adding a new regular blog feature: Time on Tuesday. Time has suddenly become a major plot point in PHOEBE FOGG AND THE LOST LIBRARY. I’ve also noticed that time is something people in our society obsess about a lot: there’s never enough time, we all wish we had more time. You get the picture.
I invite you to explore time elements with me here each Tuesday. We’ll start with Big Ben.

Here’s what author Annie Dillard has to say about time:
How we spend our days is how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour and with that one, is what we are doing.
I challenge you to spend some time creating today. Writing, drawing, painting, cooking, wherever your passion lies, make time for it!
I’d love to hear about it.
