SPECIAL EDITION – REMOCTWRIMO

“I would return again someday, at least I prayed I might. I prayed both that my friends wouldn’t search for me, and that they would. I told them not to come after me; I hoped they would.”

Finished the [GO BACKS] for The Tilting Leaves of Autumn and jumped right back into The Silent Song of Winter with Fetch-n-Forward. Five times in now, and I’ve somewhat of a process to this release bit—from the formatting to cover reveal and release events. Next go ‘round, I’ll have master docs to start fresh—makes it all oh-so-much easier!

 

Meanwhile, I’m a researching and writing fool. #amwriting  #NaNoWriMo  #NaNo2017

 

I do love how these stories are overlapping and intertwining, each new one going back to the previous ones, and tying them all together! Can’t wait to get to Simone’s story—The Whispering Winds of Spring#May2018

 

“I’ve always had voices—er, stories in my head. I once said I should write them all down so someone could write them someday. I had no idea at the time that someone was me!”

BLOGWORDS – Sunday 29 October 2017 – FRONT PORCH FELLOWSHIP – ALL CREATION WORSHIPS

FRONT PORCH FELLOWSHIP – ALL CREATION WORSHIPS

 

 

Several years ago I was walking around a small lake. It’s a favorite spot, and I take the walk whenever I visit there.

This particular time I had been listening to a certain praise and worship CD, and one of the songs was playing in my head.

 

 

As those words sang in my mind, my eyes looked up at the trees—and I wondered (as all good authors do) “How does a tree worship God.”

 

I had thought it an idle thought. Until He answered me.

 

 

So simple and yet so profound.

 

And as all good writer also do, my mind took it another step.

 

 

Of course I knew the answer, even then.

 

 

And with an algebraic turn, or perhaps putting the pieces in a puzzle, that meant that I worship Father by writing.

 

So today (Saturday) as I was sitting outside, basking in a miracle moment today, and praising Father for this long awaited thing, I glanced at the trees.

 

And I was reminded of what He told me those years ago—to worship Him, I be what He created me to be.

*note the use of “be” vs “do.”

 

So, and pardon the license with grammar, but I be writing. I be working—and worshiping Him—as I write.

 

And that brings me even greater joy.

 

 

Wha about you? What has Father created you to be? What do you do to worship Him?

“I would return again someday, at least I prayed I might. I prayed both that my friends wouldn’t search for me, and that they would. I told them not to come after me; I hoped they would.”

After my amazing day Wednesday, yesterday was more “normal” for me. But it was a weird day, too—SO | MANY | INTERRUPTIONS!!! Mostly good, all annoying… But I got through 60+ pages in #TheTiltingLeavesofAutumn #November2017. Next is my [GO BACKS] and beta reader notes, then it’s on to formatting and upload to CreateSpace!

Who know, maybe I’ll even have some time for Pearl (#TheSilentSongofWinter #February2018) today, too!

I love how these stories are overlapping and intertwining, each new one going back to the previous ones, and tying them all together! Can’t wait to get to Simone’s story—#TheWhisperingsWindsofSpring!  #May2018

BLOGWORDS – Friday 27 October 2017 – FIRST LINE FRIDAY – WEEP NO MORE MY LADY by MARY HIGGINS CLARK

FIRST LINE FRIDAY – WEEP NO MORE MY LADY by MARY HIGGINS CLARK

 

Welcome to First Line Fridays, now hosted by Hoarding Books!!!

Tell us your first line in the comments & then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating!

 

 

 

THE BLURB:  

Elizabeth Lange has arrived at Cypress Point Spa in Pebble Beach, California, weary of heart and soul. Still grieving for her beloved sister, a famous actress who plunged to her death from her Manhattan penthouse, Elizabeth is determined to unearth the truth about how Leila died. Dashing multimillionaire Ted Winters stands accused of her murder, but Elizabeth has doubts.
Along the windswept cliffs of the Monterey coast, in luxurious bungalows, between gourmet meals and beachfront walks, uneasiness stalks Elizabeth while she begins opening doors to the past. As glimpses of the dark truth about Leila’s life and death — and about Elizabeth herself — start to crash against her mind, an ominous wave from an unexpected source threatens to engulf her entirely.

 

THE FIRST LINE:

The Kentucky sun was blazing hot.

 

MY THOUGHTS:  

If I’ve read this one, it’s been so long I don’t remember… but it’s Mary Higgins Clark, what’s not to love!

 

GENRE:

Mystery and Suspence

“I would return again someday, at least I prayed I might. I prayed both that my friends wouldn’t search for me, and that they would. I told them not to come after me; I hoped they would.”

 

I actually felt amazing yesterday and am hoping it’s the adjustment in my medication and not a fluke… That’s the thing about autoimmune disease and chronic illness, the unpredictability. Not knowing from one day to the next is almost worse than the actual illness…

Still, an amazing day for me may not even be a busy day for a healthy person, and the tasks I accomplished, while ordinary, were gold star moments. Still, while amazing, I tire easily and had no energy for both revisions and writing… Good progress with revisions / edits for The Tilting Leaves of Autumn—release day is just over a month away!

 

Feeling pretty good today, and not so much on my plate, hoping to get some writing done today, too!  #TheSilentSongofWinter, #February2018

 

I love how these stories are overlapping and intertwining, each new one going back to the previous ones, and tying them all together! Can’t wait to get to Simone’s story—The Whispering Winds of Spring!  #May2018
