"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


As Of Late: September 15, 2011

I'm smiling. :) Why, you ask? Because it's time for one of my favorite memes, As Of Late. I enjoy writing it up - but more, l love reading others' posts and seeing what THEY are up to.


This monthly meme shows up on the third Thursday of the month. It's an opportunity to look back on the past month and see what you've been up to lately - and share it with blogdom. Stop by Christy's blog and check out her post, link up at the bottom, and read others' posts as well. Just plain fun!

And it's MY turn. :)

Lately, I've been seeing the light at the end of at least SOME of my tunnels.

Lately, quiet is not quite as rare, but still just as precious.

Lately, I'm so glad I'm part of Living By Grace

Lately, I'm tired.

Lately, I'm adjusting to the fall schedule.

Lately, I'm reading in Isaiah, and absolutely LOVING it (as usual).

Lately, this book is totally wowing, and teaching, me.

Lately, I'm astounded at how fast my kids are growing up.

Lately, I'm savoring moments with my husband.

So, what's going on with YOU as of late?

Be sure to stop by Christy's blog and join in - AND read others' "as of lates."

Riding God's Grace Over Rough Roads


  1. Such beautiful things on your list sweet Joanne.

    Woot for lights at the end of the tunnel.

    I so understand that tired thing...especially this week.

    My SIL and I were chatting last night about how fast kids seem to grow... and so glad you are getting some wonderful moments with your husband.

    Isaiah is one of my most favorites. :)

  2. Lately, I've been tired too. :P

    Thinking of you constantly, Joanne!


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