I began writing this blog in June 2014, not knowing what would come of it. I jumped in without knowing much and kept going. The first one was about aging parents. Seven years later, I’m still writing a blog and my parents are still aging. That’s special.
I don’t follow the advice of books and articles that say a blogger must pick a specialty and stick with it. That’s how you get followers, they say. I’m such a rebel. While I want followers who’ll read my books, I’d rather have friends who like to hear what I’m doing and comment back on what they’re doing. I’d rather my blog be like a communal letter than someplace you go to for instructions on writing or editing or being retired. You get all that in my “letters” plus more.
I write about everything. If you go through my archives (on the right side of the Sunshine, Inspirations, and Journeys page), you’ll find travel, family, cooking, projects, social issues, Bible studies, and the list goes on. I’m just an ordinary person trying to do something she loves. This place gives me a voice after feeling like I had none for most of my life. I’ve started putting Bible verses in my blogs because we, myself included, need to remember who is in control.
I want to thank those of you who take the time to read my blogs. You don’t know how much I appreciate your time and comments back to me. It means a WHOLE lot. I hope you’ll keep coming back to see what strange musings are here. I hope I can entertain and brighten your day and maybe even give you something to think about.
I also want to say thank you to those who read my books. I get so excited every time I see someone is reading my ebooks. You keep me going and working hard to give you the best books I can.
As an update for my book-in-progress, I have about four chapters left to write in the first draft. After that, two or three more drafts will happen before it gets shipped off to an editor. It’s tentatively named either Not For Love or Money or The Slide into Love. (If you want to comment on which title you like better, please do!) It’s a romance novel set in a small town in Colorado over the Christmas holidays. A heartbroken woman is caught in an avalanche but is pulled to safety by the grocery store owner. What he doesn’t know is that she’s there to buy property for a megastore that will put his out of business.
I may try to go the traditional publishing route on this one to see if I can do it. That means I’m not sure when it will come out. If I have no luck with that, then I’ll self-publish again and keep you informed on the release date.
Again, thank you for all you do for me.
And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17
