  1. It opened for me. I look forward to reading it!
  2. Okay. I had only started one forum/topic-- Whose POV? --and has forgotten how to do that (my reason for "exploring" so far today). Now that I've done it a second time I think it'll be established in my brain. Hoping I don't forget again. I like to organize myself (or at least have that appearance), as well as have separate "places" for different things. Which is why under this forum/topic (am I able to change the "name"?) I hope to begin topics for a number of "short stories" that I've made book covers for. Since I can't sell book covers (they aren't that good, I guess) perhaps I can use some of them. That's kind of what I had in mind when I first started learning how to make book covers. Except I devoted too much time (and yes, money) to it.
  3. WOW! 😮 I'm up to 1,001 Community Reputation points = Excellent.

    Ahem. What are those?

  4. I think if I ever plan to see that movie again I'll need to rent it while it's still only 5$ on Google Play.

      LOL

      He goes to this church. He was actually saved under the former pastor's "tutelage". He's roughly eight or nine years younger than me, so I think of him as another brother.

      He helps me with some of the translation work I've been doing. He's one busy guy: Trucker (Wed. - Sat.) and sometimes ends up getting back so late that it's too late for him to go home - so he sleeps at the church when that happens.

       

      He's studying Greek to better comprehend the Bible (first language, after all). He studies via Skype with the former pastor (or did), though I'm not sure why, since the pastor is very busy and has a family. He also works with my dad on translating some English Bible lessons into French. Plus he helps me.

       

      Like I said: Busy guy.

      Prono?

       

      I avoid some movies simply because the language is too much for my ears. I guess my being a preacher's daughter gave me a sensitivity to them that can be fairly strong.

       

      Of course, then there are those I watch anyway, trying to block out the bad words. I often find myself replacing said words with my own.

      I am, yes.

      And it's Quebecker - so far as I know.

      Used to read Kathy Reichs books about Temperance Brennan.  She put a lot of french in her books.

      Thanks for being so understanding.

      I may not have cried, but.... I'm pretty sure I'll have plenty of emotional scenes in my book. Well, plenty more.

      Have you seen all the Marvel movies?
       

      What about Breakthrough or Unplanned? (haven't seen either)

    4. KR LaLonde

      KR LaLonde

      Not all, no. Most is how I'd best describe it.

       

      I don't think I've ever heard of Breakthrough. And as far as I know, Unplanned is banned in Canada. -_-

  8. EXACTLY! I'm not sure how to tell a story about my artwork. The book covers are almost always based on story ideas, not the other way around. Very few come after the story is written. Err, summarized. Thank you for your encouraging words. They mean a lot.
  9. Did I mention this before?

    Prayer request (urgent): A writer friend I've known for a few years has been having some heart problems for some time. I only just learned about it. 😢

      Praying!

  10. Such a good verse often taken out of context. Thank you for sharing!
  11. Just another shot in the dark. Since I can't participate in these often - if at all - I decided instead of canceling my subscription for emails to just share them with others. Are you able to read what's provided? I copied the page where the opportunities show, so hopefully you ocan. https://www.freedomwithwriting.com/freedom/uncategorized/3-greeting-card-companies-that-pay-25-to-300/
  12. I know. But my brothers got most of the genes I'd love to have a few of. Height and memory, mostly.
  13. Wow. Wish I had even a partial photographic memory.
  14. I'm in the middle of chapter 4. I hope to post it in the next couple of days.
  15. I've been considering that I'd like to go off-grid. Not for long, I'm sure. Though forever sounds pretty good sometimes.

      I've honestly tried that.

      And while I still do my best to not use my computer for any reason at least on Sundays, I often find that I'm too weak. Especially when I have literally nothing to do.

      I read two books while on my respite.

      SO JEALOUS!!

       

      I take a break (or so I think) occasionally with little or no progress in many places.

  16. 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.

  17. 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?

    1. KR LaLonde

      KR LaLonde

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

    2. MaryKaithe

      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.

  18. 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.

    1. Sarah Daffy

      Sarah Daffy

      Of course! Sorry.  :$

    2. KR LaLonde

      KR LaLonde

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

  19. 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'm impressed!  Those covers look great!

    2. KR LaLonde

      KR LaLonde

      :D I'm pretty sure there are more because I've made some since making this collage. But this is a majority.

    3. KR LaLonde

      I've been seriously considering the need to remake a number of them. Not only was I working with more inferior tools for many of them; I'm also not the best cover artist out there. I'm not expensive (at least I don't think so), but few people purchase any. Oh well. *shrugs*

  20. You're welcome!! I figured if they can help me, they can help others, too.
  21. 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!

  22. Wow. I hope you find a book for this. That's a lot to deal with! PRAYING!
  23. Don't give up! God is with you until the end of -- whatever. PRAYING!
  24. 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". ^_^
