I’m approximately 10,000 words shy of ending my second novel. As I wake up and fall asleep though, something mysterious is happening. While I dine at the home of my current characters, I keep hearing someone (more than one person, actually) pounding on the door. They are undeniably persistent. You’ve seen the scene in Lord of The Rings (I apologize, I don’t remember which one—I think maybe Two Towers) where the Orcs pummel the door of the safe tower with the enormous flaming log? That’s what the characters of my third novel are doing to my thoughts. Lessons on courteousness, timing and patience will be a must as I first meet them on the page.
I’m a columnist for Exemplify Online and my first article, How-To Fight Fair is featured in this month’s issue.
My article, Give Me Your Eyes was published in the WEFC Weekly this week.My short story, The Pond is featured (along with Katie Ganshert’s story) in Christian Fiction Online Magazine this month (August).
My children have been growing each day, too. Because of this, I’m making concerted efforts to spend time with them and pour into them.
I’m reading a lot of books right now, but am basking in the greatness of Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl (book review soon to come).
My ten year wedding anniversary is fast approaching.
I’ll soon be posting an interview with an amazing author who has dedicated herself to a noble cause.
I just received gorgeous jewelry in the mail from a talented artist (will be attaching a button to my blog soon so you can peruse her jewelry).
It’s Monday, so I’m over at Live Beautiful.
That’s all (for now) folks!
What's new with you? Are you aging with grace and/or opening doors?
