It’s been a long week

August 20, 2011

I have had ideas like crazy for my novel. Have made good progress writing it each of the last six days. I can’t remember when I haven’t had one day each week where I couldn’t think clearly.. Anyway, Monday, I am going to look into writing more for publication. Really think I need to finish working, write some personal e-mail and call it an early afternoon.

The other thing keeping our family busy is the past week has been prayer week. I went every night texcept Monday. So that means doing all my work and personal things I want to do mostly before dinner.

However, some things are stirring around in my head, and I think this is going to become a topic on this blog.. Let me first say that I love my aide who’s coming now. She is in no way the problem. However, we’re having issues with the company my aides work for. And it is not just that company. Organizations who are supposed to work with the disabled most of the time seem to be very, very slow. Sadly, the center is having to deal with lots of red tape still.

I’m not sure if the problem is that people with disabilities have to work with government agencies. I want to do some research and look into these things.

I did it!

I’m a writer, have been writing for I’m not sure how long. But when it comes to submitting anything to publishers, I do not do well. Nothing feels like it is finished. I love writing novels. And believe me, none of my novels are finished. However, I do like writing articles as well. I would love to find an online magazine to submit articles to regularly. So far I haven’t found anything.

I am on several writer e-mail lists, and I will see different e-mails about places where people can submit this and that. Sometimes I think that I should submit something to one of these places. But I never get up the courage to write anything and send it in.

But there is a women’s retreat coming up at our church. And they want people to write devotionals. And I submitted something to them, and may well write more. I feel proud of myself. It’s a first step at least.

Once again

August 11, 2011

We’re heading out of town again today. We are going to see my brother and his family. I’m taking my computer, because I’m not sure how much I’ll be on. If people go places and I decide to stay there and work, I might accomplish something. My writing on my novel is going really well,, having lots of ideas on that lately.

Nothing new on the center. I would appreciate prayer on this. Especially because, well, my family might be moving to Hickory NC. We used to live there when I was younger. And of all the places we used to live, Hickory is the place we’ve gone back to most frequently. We have some dear friends there.

I’m not sure what this means for me. I would still love to work at the center, and make a life for myself here. But I have no idea if that will work. There is a lot I need to figure out either way.

On another subject, I love it that I’m getting feedback via Facebook. But if you could comment directly on this blog, it would help me. Thanks

We’re back

August 9, 2011

Yeah, working while on vacation is really hard. I didn’t do much Friday, Saturday and Sunday I did nothing.

I’m not sure what to say about anything. There is. sadly, nothing new on the center. My family is kind of in transition. But I’d really to talk to those I’m close to before going public with the information.

I’ve looked into writing jobs a little more. I’m very unsure what to do about anything right now.. Sorry this entry is so short.

On vacation

August 5, 2011

this is not the first blog that I’ve tried to keep up. And since we’re, hopefully, going to my grandparents sometime this month, I’m trying to work some on this trip. Easier said than done

We’re visiting some dear friendss. My family has kind of grown up with, they’re more like family than friends. We come and everyone is trying to catch up with everyone else. We know a lot of these people’s friends, so we’re catching up with them.. It’s kind of crazy.

I did manage to write a little. That’s unusual for a Friday. That was nice..

Confession is good for you, ain’t?

My title will easier to understand in a minute. But first let me say that much to my disappointment, there is still nothing new on the center. I’m not wanting to be a pest and e-mail them every other day, asking if there is anything new. Waiting is hard though. Th

I have had some ideas for my novel that I’m working on, but today things aren’t going that well. I’m reading a lot. And I guess that’s not bad for a writer.. I’m listening to one of my favorite authors of all times, Beverly Lewis. Lewis writes about the Amish, and most of her books I’ve found hard to put down. I’ve also just finished a novel on my Kindle about the Shaker. It was somewhat similar. However I also was disappointed in the Chaker novel. It just was not the same. I’m planning on starting another Amish novel. We’ll see if I find it captivating.

Not so sure what to do with myself lately. Haven’t done much more looking about writing jobs.
