Randomness and Rain
I have to admit right off that my mind is clouded much like the sky outside my window. There is much I would like to share with you today, but my thoughts choose not to obey. Everything is coming forth in random order. Sitting here now, I fight the temptation to work on a different writing project.
Walking at Dawn
Most mornings, I get up before the sun rises and head out the door for an hour long walk. Too many people have said to me “things start to go downhill when you turn forty.” While I’m sorry that may have happened to them, I choose to be stubborn and do what I can to not let it happen to me. So, I’ve been walking for a few months now. I feel better than I did before turning forty. I feel healthier and I’m starting to look pretty good. (Yeah, I’m a little cocky about it, but it’s been a while since I have felt this way!) The results I’m seeing are not just in my physical appearance. Walking has also started helping my inner self.
For the past week, I’ve been guilty of mentally checking out where my novel is concerned. I was able to have a wonderful face to face meeting with my publisher last Sunday about everything we need to move forward, not just on the novel, but on other projects as well. It was a very productive and positive meeting, but I left it with my head spinning.
I have been on this journey as an author for two years. As I have traveled along this road, I have met some amazing people. I have learned many things from authors willing to share the knowledge they have obtained, but it wasn’t until last November that I met an author that would turn out to be a great friend.
Miles to Go Before I Sleep
It’s early Sunday morning. I’m up before my alarm, my mind awaking before my body is ready. A Robert Frost quote “Miles to go before I sleep” is echoing through my brain as I try to focus on the tasks of the morning.
Meet Miss K
K Wendt is excited to write children’s fiction that spreads both a love of reading and a love of God’s word. Her first work is an adaptation of the story of David and Goliath told in a sea-side setting meant to be shared with children aged 7 and younger. The endeavor was a family affair, with illustrations by her teen-aged son. She followed Duney with the story of a young girl, her father and a love of baseball in Susie. Then along came a spider (and a gnat) in Washed Away and the wonderful story of Billy the baker. Wendt has even added a book of poetry for women.
