  1. Lord, I know I can't pray for every need or request given the world over. But I can pray for the few I know about and remember. My strainer-memory doesn't help me recall them all. But You know each and every one I forget. I pray You will answer each one to the fullest.

  2. So I made this book cover last year with one story about prayer in mind, but I thought of another just this morning. Now what?

      OH great. Never mind. I lost the second idea.

      you must write down your ideas immediately. If you lose the thought pray and ask God to bring it back. If he doesn't remind you, he did not want you to write about it.

       

      Keep a journal next to your be for possible dreams that are vivid and may be a message from God.

  3. Could I ask you to do me a huge favor?

    If you want to share something with me, would you share about it - and the link if possible - in a message? I often get confused and lose information. Or I just don't see it in time. I don't want to do that, so would you do that for me?

    If it's too hard that's all right. I'll keep trying to find what you post for us to read, anyway.

      Of course! Sorry.  :$

      Not your fault at all. It's just the way my brain works now. 😕 I should be the one apologizing to you.

  4. image.thumb.png.cd7dd7b921afe3ac0547463bfb748c80.pngThese book covers are from from quite some time ago. But I saved them (for some reason).

     

    Not sure why I'm sharing this photo with anyone who cares to look at it.

      I never throw anything I've written away.  I would keep them all.  Look to see if a particular one speaks to you and pull it out to see if it goes with any theme you have already written. I am currently trying to catch up on critiques so I can post under editing.

  5. You're welcome!! I figured if they can help me, they can help others, too.
  6. If you need some help writing your story, I got this email today and thought it was worth sharing. Hello, In case you're feeling stuck with the story you want to write, here are some ideas to help. If you're having trouble writing the beginning... 1) Try starting in the middle of the action. You don't have to write the story in order -- you can always go back and write the beginning later. And, often, the middle of a scene makes for a great story beginning, pulling the reader right into the action. 2) You can start with one of these first lines: - "No, absolutely not!" she/he/I said. _ Please let it not be ___________. Use your creativity to fit the line into your specific story idea. If you're stuck partway through the story... 1) Try making your character's situation much worse. Back your character into a corner where s/he will be forced to take action and get your story moving again. 2) Introduce a new character who will shake everything up. A difficult parent, a toxic former friend, an old lover whom your character has never quite gotten over... Throw this character into the mix and see what happens. Happy writing!

  7. Wow. I hope you find a book for this. That's a lot to deal with! PRAYING!
  8. Don't give up! God is with you until the end of -- whatever. PRAYING!
  9. I had almost forgotten about my account at [Dropbox.com]. I don't plan to do this with everything, but I think I will start using it more often. Who knows? Maybe I'll actually get something accomplished.

     

    Now, I will continue to use Scrivener, as well as OpenOffice, but for some reason I occasionally have "moments of inspiration" - spurts, really - of what I think of as "writing genius". ^_^

  10. Come on KR....Do you know how many times Thomas Edison failed while trying to create the light bulb? Maybe you haven't found your genre yet? Maybe you  are upset with me.  (Talk about narcissism!)  I've been off because some of my land friends have demanded my attention. I'm sorry I haven't been here in days. 

       I came up with a scathingly brilliant ideas for you and me for self publishing!  The first one I've had for a while.Do you own a smart phone or a camera?

     

    I want to self-publish a book online with you.  Are you interested? Are you interested? You notice I haven't invited any of the  other's to work with me...Only you. Now you have to answer me or I'll quit and baby I have some good stuff.  

     

    Sincerely , 

    MaryKaithe

      An idea, you say? Sounds cool. What might that be?

       

      Self-publishing together would be pretty cool. I've tried to find a writing partner in the past, but had no real success. I'd love to hear what your ideas are. :)

       

      As to Edison, I think I heard it was over 1000 times?

  11. Sometimes I wonder...

     

    - What's the point of trying to do something that so many others are already doing? With more success?

    - Why do I think it's all right to keep on trying to write when I've experienced so much failure in the past?

    - Who am I to think I'm going to be successful when the world is currently in a downward spiral from which there doesn't seem to be any escape?

     

    And all with a TBI. :( 😢-_-

     

    Sorry. Pity party.

      I understand how you feel. I have felt that way myself. But God has brought me back to writing so many times. About the time I tell Him I want to give up and do something else, I get a wonderful comment from a blog reader or a high number of views on the website for which I write.  I do not compare myself and my writing with anyone else's. 

       

      God is the one who gives us this gift.

      Honestly, I don't think I compare myself to other writers/authors. But I guess maybe it's possible.

      Thanks for the encouragement, though. I needed that.

      Hey...KR  what did I tell you about negative thoughts.  They are lies to keep you doubting your unique calling from God.  Get out your baseball glove and I'll get out my bat... so catch a negative thought and pitch it to me, I promise, with God's help, I'll hit it out of the park, beyond the reach of mortal men.

       

      Love You,

      MaryKaithe

  12. If it's all right, I'd like to share several of the premade covers I made a while ago.

    Sadly, this doesn't mean I'll ever make book covers like them anytime soon. I truly wish I could shrink the images.

    Anyway...

      I'm all for at least trying it out. :D

      I've actually considered coauthoring in the past. I never did find anyone suitable to the task, though.

    3. MaryKaithe

      MaryKaithe

      yes please do.  I would love to see them.  If I don't answer you right away, it's because I'm tryihng to catch up on my critiques.

    4. KR LaLonde

      KR LaLonde

      My past coauthor attempts? I don't think I kept anything I wrote then, actually.

  13. I forgot to mention: Only good for ONE DAY from what I've been able to tell.
