"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


For the curious

I've had a few people ask me how I'm doing overall on my book, as well as what it's going to look like format-wise. I've also mentioned that I have some other projects on the back burner, and some were curious about them.

SO, to satisfy your curiosity, be sure to check out my "Book Progress" tab. I have a fairly accurate total word count there (I update it each time I finish writing a chapter), plus some details on what I'm planning the book to look like. I also jotted down a bit about the other books I feel led to work on (at some point in my life!!)

Oh, and one MORE fairly big announcement (well, to me, anyway!). Starting with February, I'm going to be the regular host of the meme Monday Manna. (click here for more information) This incredible meme was started by my dear friend Kristen Schiffmann of {dancing} in the margins and Exemplify Online. She and I were both hosting it, but with her busy schedule and new ezine, she has passed the privilege on to me. I hope you will participate!

Thhhtthhhhttthhhat's allll, folks ;) Have a blessed weekend.


  1. I look forward to continuing the meme with you! Wonderful idea about your book progress.

    My writing blog is http://godlygraffiti.blogspot.com

    I share my writing journey with anyone who is interested:-)

  2. In a thousand ways, I've been trying to get over here this weekend, but just couldn't. Here now and congratulating you on your continued progress with all your many writing endeavors, especially the book. I'm working on a collection of devotionals for a proposal called (interestingly enough) "peace for the journey." Some new stuff, some old, adding questions for a "further pause" at the end of each reflection and prayer.

    I may look at self-publishing it down the road, but for now, am just trying to think about the layout, etc.

    Have a great week. Know that I think about you from time to time during my week, and even when I'm not here, I mean to be!



Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
