April 19 – A Rest, Then Development

Still smarting from the writer’s block yesterday, after I finished my devotional of 582 words, I relaxed. I did some walking, some exercising, some playing and some reading, I finished The Venom Protocols by John Murray McKay. I left a short review and a 4-star rating. There were one or two issues I had with the book, but overall, it’s a good action-packed read. I continued reading through God Dreams. I walked. After a late lunch, I ran an errand trying to get some giveaways for a career fair I’m going to present at in about a week. I failed. Miserably. Then I got my haircut. Very much needed. Rolling around in the back of my mind was how to approach this time travel short story. As I came up with an idea, it fit into the online class I’m taking and I used the first page as my homework. Then, I finished another page and a few lines onto page 3. I had to add/rewrite a lot, but I’m happy with the direction the edits/rewrite is going. Oh, and while I researched something else, I found out that someone had left a good review of my first devotional book. It was nice to see that. Book 3 in the series is about ready to put online. Then I’ll go back and finish editing book 2 and the final re-edit of book 1. I have one step to finish for book 3. Then, I’ll run it through the Amazon publishing process and it will be orderable.

Today’s devotional: April 19 – Light the Lamps and Sweep the House

March 23 – Making Progress

I’m making progress. I did my morning devotional, although I was running a bit late, and then got my challenge writing done. Instead of working on the short story that had given me writer’s block, I worked on a different one for a local anthology and edited a little over half today. I should finish tomorrow, although tomorrow will be a busy day. Deadline to submit that work is March 31. Considering how my penchant in the past was to procrastinate, the fact that I’m almost done is amazing.

Today’s Devotional was 470 words: March 23 – Give In to Temptation or Trust and Obey?

The challenge writing was 467 words and I’m never sure how to count editing.

Daily Work, Request, Rwanda Trip

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…..
