March 28 – Working

Not much interesting to say about today. My wife went to the doctor and gets to wean herself off of her wrist brace. That’s good news. She’s healing. She has an appointment next week about her ankle. Overall, she’s improving. I did find out that something was wrong with the reporting about finances for our trip to Rwanda. Some people told me that they had donated, but nothing was showing up, not even our deposit. Apparently there was a mistake in the algorithm and we’ve had some donations which is nice. My writing today was spent editing and I got nine days, or almost 5000 words, of my devotionals edited. I have tutoring tomorrow, so I might not get as much done, but I also plan to give one short story a last look over before I submit it for inclusion in a local anthology. Then, I need to get back to my time travel story. My editor, E. A. Copen, gave me some good ideas that I’m working on in my rewrite. (She’s also a pretty cool author!)

Today’s Devotional was 392 words: March 28 – Becoming a Citizen of the Kingdom of God

While the devotionals in m book have a different format, you can get a glimpse of my writing style in my everyday devotions.

March 18 – Sunday Writing

It’s always difficult to find time to write on Sundays. We leave the house by 7:45 AM to go to church. We have duties, usually, in both the 8:30 and the 11:00 worship services. We have Sunday School at 9:45. So we’re there from 7:45 til about 12:15, depending on how long we talk afterwards. I come home, fix lunch, and then I do a Bible Study at a nursing home from 2:00 to 2:30. Today, we had a meeting about security at our church at 4:00 that lasted til about 5:20, then I had to shop and get food for the next few days. I came home, fixed supper, ate, and then got to do my story writing. Today I finished my devotional before church.

Some Christian writers I know take Sunday’s off from writing to get a full day of rest. Sundays are a day of service for me anyway.

So, today’s writing: March 18 – What Does It Take To Believe? 473 words. Then, 481 words on my back story. I had fun using a Mary Poppins reference in a story set in 2035.

Tomorrow – Lucy plans on driving herself to work, so I should be able to spend most of the morning writing. I have chess clubs to work with from 2:30 – 5:30 (driving time included.) We’ll see what else I can get done.
