Colorado Christian Writers Conference Report 2015

First, a huge thanks to all who financially gave in order for me to go to the conference. Your money has been well spent, and I’m certain your crown will be enriched with much bling for having been so generous. What touched me more than your giving was that you gave cheerfully, and I am grateful. Thank […]

Credentials and Kerfuffles

For the past few weeks, I have been preparing for a Christian writer’s conference due to take place mid-May in Estes Park. In the book proposal I am working on, one question I have to answer is: What credentials does the writer have that qualifies him or her to write this book?  English/Lit major? Nope. […]

A Time for Rest

Recently, I’ve been asked by several people how my writing is coming along (and by “several”, I mean a whopping five – hehee), so here’s a quick update: I’m taking a hiatus. Well, I take that back. I am writing, but mostly in my private journals and in my head. I’ve ceased all regular blog […]

Writing Wisdom Needed

Last week, I thought I finally had a title for my book. I actually have about seven titles, but I thought this was the one. Because I am paranoid, and because I am told that when presenting a book to agents and publishers, I will need to know what other types of books are out […]

My WIP – A Letter to My Pray-ers

A quick update for those of you who are praying for the WIP (work in progress): I am in the throes of writing a chapter full of darkness. It’s not particularly fun. But it is particularly necessary. Because if you want to tell others of how Jesus has brought you from darkness to light, well […]

Workin’ 9-2, What a Way to Make a Living

  Honestly, the writing is still a bit slow going due to getting Jessie (my second youngest) ready for her move to Florida. I’m not quite to the point successfully planting the bompy  in the chair from 9-2. For instance, last night, I had to wait up and go get her at work at 12:30 […]

Prayer for a Poopy First Draft

Those of you who know me well will know that I’ve started writing a book. Three times, actually. Today, I started again. Anne Lammot says that in order to write, you have to first start with poopy first drafts (I cleaned that quote up a bit – it’s G-rated here). So, that’s what I’ve done. […]

The Silent Sickness (Part 1)

They say to write what you know. I’m not a highly educated girl, in terms of having diplomas and degrees in my grubby little hands. So – according to most people, I don’t know much. Most of my education comes from reading on my own, and since I am a sucker for awesome stories and […]

The Life of Me

It doesn’t quite have the same ring as The Life of Pi, but it’ll have to do. Sometimes, I just want to write about my every day life. I know it’s mundane, and you may click the X in the upper right corner with my full blessing. This is therapeutic for me, and somehow, I wonder if my […]

Oh Be Careful Little Mouths

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold       In settings of silver. ~Proverbs 25:11   Evening dawns, and I write a few short entries in my gratitude journal  … #19 Candlelight #20 Man’s best friend By morning, I forget I wrote the prior entries and accidentally write the same entry … #21 Stocked pantries […]
