September 16th || So I have an announcement to make. As of right now, I am on a writing hiatus. We have a lot of good things going on this fall and I just won't have the time to devote to my family and my writing until January. So, until then, I'll see you around!
September 2nd || I am happy to announce that I am officially working on the read through as of today! As I read, I'm hoping to divide what I have so far into chapters, doing a little formatting to help me focus (having none of this done is driving me crazy!). The goal is to completely read through the first chapter today!
August 27th || So today was exciting! I hit the end of May! It was so fun and I even got to use a bit of wit and humor in the prose so that was enjoyable :) And now I have reached a decision. I am going back to the beginning and fixing some trouble spots. The story has changed a lot as I developed it and it is quickly becoming a bit of a mess in my head, so I thought it would be good to go back and straighten the tangle. I need one story, not three mish-mashes of a story vying for attention. So starting tomorrow, I am rereading!
August 18th || I just hit May 20th! So excited about some stuff coming up in the story and I can't wait to share it all with y'all!
August 13th || I am happy to report some progress! After a writing slump, I have been able to get some more consistent writing in the last two days and I have just finished the 12th of May! I hope to finish the month out over the weekend, so we'll see what happens!
But that's not all I got done today! I brainstormed with my mom and she figured out the perfect way to un-stick one of my sticky problems from my story, so now I know how to end it!
I realized I should have said who died last time. My apologies. My Mom's dad, my grandfather, passed away at the end of July. He was saved, praise the Lord, and will never know pain again!
August 5th || It's been nearly two months since I updated this page! My apologies! I'm getting back into the swing of drafting after some ministry travel and another death in the family. But I am pleased to confirm that as always, God's Grace is sufficient. I am now in the 11th of May, 1865! It's so nice to be done with most of the major historical events, which are quite stressful, let me tell ya!
Well, hopefully, I'll be back to doing my weekly updates now!
