Conference – Oh My!

Conference – Oh My!

Hey y’all, Many of us are preparing to head to Dallas to stay in an ultra fancy hotel for the annual American Christian Fiction Writer’s Conference. If not this year, possibly some day in the future. So many writers show up with their hopes and dreams. A few go home with a contract. Some go home […]

Preparing to be Noticed

Preparing to be Noticed

I’m often inspired by getting my hands dirty. I’m not speaking figuratively here about discussing controversial topics, but literally worm dirt under the fingernails stuff. The task at hand today was cleaning up my irises in preparation for their short-lived exhibition next spring. After enjoying a few glorious weeks in April/May for three or four […]

Some diseases leave you and your loved ones in a state of “watchful waiting.” Words meaning that you can’t actively do anything to fix your situation, but watch and wait.

Praying the Words

  2 Samuel 14:14 “Yet God does not take away a life; but He devises means so that His banished ones are not expelled from Him.”   “Lord, please devise a means of keeping my child from evading Your grasp. Please devise a means of turning her from the broad road to the narrow one. […]

Just. Write.

You are born a writer. You must become an author. This takes diligence, persistence and perseverance. And a laptop.  I have heard this over the years, and it is true. But the pursuit of authorship can, if we’re not careful, strangle the writer in us. A handful of years ago I completed my first manuscript. […]

Waiting to Launch

Waiting to Launch

I stand at the end of the road- Sunrise Point. My hang-glider is almost ready. I chose this mode of travel because it suits my purpose better than parachuting from an airplane. I’ll be sailing out over what is now familiar territory. I’ve talked to experts, befriended people who have been there, learned to identify […]
