March 31 – Ending the Month Strong

Today was a nice, carefree day. I had no responsibilities, nor did my wife, so we slept late, not waking up til just before 8. Then coffee and a late breakfast after finishing devotionals. My wife writes a much shorter one, posted only on Facebook. Mine was 514 words long. After breakfast we ran errands. I love having that time together with my wife! I began editing after we got back home and spent a couple hours editing. I did six days worth, some of them had some areas that needed extensive editing, just saying, and then did some work around the house…the kind that I was supposed to be doing in retirement. I do have a lot of editing to do, so I may need to spend a lot more time editing in April and May.

Today’s Devotonal – 514 words: March 31 – What You Can Expect As a Follower of Christ

I should point out that a friend is doing a special promotional deal to help us go to Rwanda. If you go to Driftwood Coffee Company and make any purchase, they will give a portion of the proceeds to us in support of our work in Rwanda. They have great coffee – we’ve been buying from them since the beginning of their company, and the owners are amazing people. They ship anywhere in the country. They use a direct trade approach so they get to know the farmers they purchase from. Check them out!

March 21 – Re-imagining and Writer’s Block

Timing worked better this morning. I got the devotional and the challenge writing done early today. Then, I went to my short story where I’m dealing with notes from an editor that are causing me to make some changes and I stared at where I left off. Then, I did something else. Then I went back, and I did something else. Finally, I wrote about 350 words…and every one of them was a struggle.

Devotional: 415 Words –  March 21 – Out With the Old, In With the New

Challenge Writing / Back Story – 556 words

Main Short Story – 350 words.

I need to keep on writing…..

I did get a nice offer to help us with our trip to Rwanda. Driftwood Coffee will be helping us out of the proceeds from their web based sales from April and May.  Fine coffee, beautiful mugs, and cool T-shirts. Check them out!
