"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

No Need To Panic :)

This is something of a crazy week for me - the kids head back to school a week from today, and I've got lots of things I need to get done (both on and off the computer!), so I really do not know if I'll get much if any blogging (or reading of blogs!) done over the next several days. Plan to at least have something up for Fiction Friday, but no guarantees beyond that.

Will be thinking of, and praying for, many of my dear regular readers, and of course I'd SO appreciate your prayers in return. It's not a bad time - just a busy one :)

Thanks so much, ladies and gents. See you back when I can!

  2. Ah...the approaching school year always brings more schedules and less time for us to do the fun things-like writing and reading blogs! I'll be right in the same boat with ya next week, Joanne! Praying your busy days bring a sense of accomplishment along with the hectic hours, too.

  3. I know exactly how you feel, Jo...
    Ty is getting ready to head for Harrisburg, PA...for 2 months training before he leaves for Shenshang, China for 8 months! And Fred is leaving for Germany for a week!!
    Hang in there and do what is necessary and be blessed in all you accomplish!

  6. You're speaking my language, girl. Take a break and tend to the homefront. All will be here when you return.

  7. Love to see your heart shining through your priorities even more than your posts, Jo. Though I miss them, it means more to me to see you right smack dab in the center of where God wants you to be.
