  1. Oh. Not to mention I have WAY TOO MANY book covers made. In essence, I wasted money to purchase photos and a photo-editing program. *shrugs*
  2. That's true. The problem with me of all people writing this type of story is that I've never, ever lived through something like this. Except in movies and other books. I'll think about it, though.
  3. Thanks. I don't think I'd ever be able to write a story that serious. I never get that involved in things to do with battles and wars. Not to mention those 2 are fairly distant. But I do think what you say works best. I wonder if any of my friends are writing a story like that? I'll ask.
  4. I have lots to do in order to get "all caught up" on a number of things. Not to mention my writing. I had hoped so much to do lots of that while I had "nothing" to do. Alas, it did not happen. I was able to get some minor writing done, but I was so busy that even just riding in the car was taken up with ... I honestly don't know what. But my brain wouldn't connect with my creative side. 😕


    So, basically, I have nothing worth adding to my story. 😕

  5. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Sarah!!
  6. As you might guess, this title is most-likely more suited for a book about daydreaming or endeavoring to leave one country for another located "across the way". Thoughts?
  7. This book cover using one photo that a friend gifted to me is probably more fitting for a story about someone with a chronic illness/pain. The title pretty much demands that it be so, from what I can see. What do you think? Also, how do i make the pictures I post smaller?!
  8. Still no progress on my main writing project. 😕 I have more I could add here, but, of course, it's in writing and not on the computer yet.


    Tomorrow will probably be fairly busy, but I'm hoping to get some writing and transferring done the next day. But--sigh--no promises. 😕

      Take your time, things will come to you.

      GOODY!! I'M BACK! I can't tell you how glad I am to be able to once again post on here.

      I thought for sure I'd get lots of writing done in the last two weeks. But my parents kept me so busy a lot of the time. Whenever I did have opportunities to write, my mind was blank. Or twisted in knots from being so busy/tired. I'm not sure which.

  9. UPDATE: I have managed to do some more writing. Car rides-> LOVE 'EM (usually)!! Sadly, I've only managed to type up Chapter 4 of the story I've been posting and I can't post it in the thread right now. Sorry. 😕 I'll get to that as soon as I can!
  10. Well, that didn't work out. My parents and I are leaving tomorrow for a mix vacation-and-business trip of sorts. Maybe I'll be able to post something more. Maybe not. Hopefully I'll get more writing done, at the very least. CHEERS TO U ALL! GOD BLESS, ❤️ & HUGS!!
  11. I don't know what's currently going on with my "website/blog". Or if you can even call it that. I've removed nearly everything from it and it's basically just sitting there. I want to start fresh and use different content. But my parents and I leave tomorrow for a trip and I don't know when I'll be able to get around to it. Or even back on here. I've been terribly absent lately. 😢
  12. I'm really hoping to write and post one more chapter before the next couple of weeks get too ... crazy.
  13. I don't want extensive critique for this piece, because it's something I came up with "on a whim" and typed right here. Just some opinions would be awesome.


    Martha Brady remained seated, wordlessly observing the man who attracted her attention almost from the moment he was introduced to the congregation of her church two Sundays ago. Her cheeks flushed as he moved up to the podium.


    Shaking hands with the man in charge of leading the small group of believers in two or three hymns each week, the object of her affection turned to face the people sitting at attention in the auditorium. Clearing his throat and opening his Bible to the New Testament, he looked up from its pages.


    "If you would," he said, "please turn to Matthew chapter 4 and read verse 19 with me. We will then continue studying in chapter 5." Clearing his throat he looked down at the pages in front of him and read.


    And he saith unto them, Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.


    Glancing up he posed a single question inspiring thought and consideration in Martha's mind.


    "Are you willing to follow Him?" He then cleared his throat and began to pace behind the pulpit.

      Clearly simple question with a very deep question.

    2. MaryKaithe


      Yeah!  you're back.  Missed you much.  Will write more after grocery shopping 


      Praise God for everything,

      Sorry I missed you, @MaryKaithe. And the next 2 weeks 😮 are looking uncertain when it comes to getting online. Hope all is well with you and yours!! GOD BLESS, ❤️ & HUGS!

  14. Well, tomorrow we'll be traveling to the other church in the afternoon - giving me almost 2 hours both ways - so maybe Monday. Maybe. We have stuff next week.
  15. I probably missed knowing the answer to this question, but even with the possibility that I'll look ignorant and foolish ... have you ever considered writing your auto-biography?
  16. I realized recently that I should not be so focused on becoming published. I should be writing for God's glory first and foremost. That's what I actually thought I was doing, honestly, but I realize now that I've placed far too much confidence and hope in my writing. It - like my book cover designing - is "okay", but not nearly good enough to be publicized anytime soon.


    Granted, any time after "soon" isn't looking like a possibility because I absolutely refuse to write non-Christian, non-biblical content. It won't be easy for me to possibly think about something else. I really do have "the writing bug". But I can't be so focused on writing "my own thing" - even if it is to glorify God and give Him praise.


    I'd like to thank @MaryKaithe on this site for inspiring me to say/do this. And while I believe writing is what God wants me to do - it being one of the few things I can do at all - I seriously need to stop thinking of it as my only avenue.


    Like my mom has said: I need to get a real job and write on the side. That way I'll be able - maybe, possibly - to take care of and support myself if my parents ever "meet their end" before the Lord's return.

      Oh! And @suspensewriter, too. And @HK1. And ... well, and ANYONE ELSE who has read and commented/liked my writing.


      No comment, @Sarah Daffy

      Thank you for thanking me. :)

  17. Still doesn't make too much sense to me. But it having the word Christian in the name settles my nerves somewhat. Although, the word Christian has been thrown around quite freely.
  18. One can never pray enough. Or be prayed for enough. ❤️ & HUGS!
  19. So after the MANY YEARS OF FAILURES under my proverbial belt, maybe it really is time I stop trying to write. I'm not as good at it as I like to think. Or close to as good as some friends have told me I am. Those are fairly infrequent. I just have to face facts. 😢


    Mom keeps almost-badgering me to get help and find an actual job. I'm not always sure why she brings it up, but she's right. It isn't as if I'll be making a living writing. I'm not even sure I could write part-time and make enough money to get by.

      Get a job and write part time. That's what almost everyone does. Your book covers were great. I would concentrate on those and promote them.

    2. KR LaLonde

      I would do that, except that so many authors are making their own. Never mind that I pretty much lose money because I don't charge and arm and two legs. *shrugs*

      Praying for you!

  20. CPE? Travis is a really great mentor and friend. Helpful and kind and a whole lot more.
  21. Sorry that I haven't added anything new recently. I'm hoping I can do that in the next week or so. Well, if you want me to.
  22. Ah. Never seen it. Or even heard of it, to be honest. A downside to living in French Canada.
  23. Sorry, but that doesn't tell me a thing. 😕
  24. I shall be absent for a couple of hours. Just remember you're in all my prayers.

  25. Thank you for sharing this, @MaryKaithe. You're in my prayers. ❤️ & HUGS!!! I'm sorry. I must have missed something. Who is Pauline?
