It's been a long time again since I posted. Haven't done a ton of writing but I did start a new novel or novelette or series of novelettes at the beginning of the month. November is National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to start a novel and write 50,000 words during the month. November isn't over yet but I know I'm not going to make it.
Several things have contributed to this. First, and I'm not blaming HaShem, The Name, I was all set to write Chloe's Sanctuary when He switched gears on me. All of a sudden I'm writing a contemporary story. This idea came about three days before November started. Needless to say I was not very well prepared. I've gotten about 18,000 words written but am stalled out. I'm not sure how to get where I want to go and whether the plots should be in one book or at least two.
Another thing is the new exercise class I'm taking at the YMCA. It's a great class. It's for those of us at a certain age. No high impact. More trying to get the old bones and joints working better. The only trouble is that it is at 11:00 AM three days a week. It really breaks up my day. I'm not really great at getting a lot done before class then the two hours total to drive there, take the class and come home really cramp my schedule. I also go to aqua aerobics the other two days. Plus new Bible Studies I'm in. Then I try to have my darling granddaughter an afternoon a week.
All said and done, I'm not getting as much writing done as I had planned. The good news is I've lost about 35 pounds since May. Hurray!!!
On the positive writing aspect, I'm working on some short devotionals which will become a series as I work through books in the Bible. I've got Philippians in rough draft form and I'm working on James. The series will be called Simple Thoughts on _______. Whichever book goes on the line. They will be coming out on Kindle exclusively in 2016 and be on Kindle Unlimited also.
Now for the real good news, for you. I'm offering special autographed copies of all my print books, regular print. These are at a discounted price of $11.00 each. You can order them through this page. Paypal is the way you pay. Shipping is included. Orders must be place by December 15, 2015.
