I love to write.

Seriously.

I mean I know, as an author, that seems like a given, but I just felt the need to share that morsel with the world! Despite the tumultuous day I’ve had today, I just sat down to write a bit on Broken and literally the world just melted away. I am so thankful that God has given me a gift. Never have I found something that has given me such fulfillment and peace- that has to be a gift from God, right?

I know this is kind of a random post, but I just felt like I should share this. If you are out there wondering what your gift is or what you’re called to do, just find that thing that takes you to another place; that thing that makes your day better no matter what. Maybe it’s reading or sports or music or serving others- whatever it may be, if you can find that thing that God has given you, you can make it through anything!

Until next time. . .

So, life has been busy lately and I haven’t got to sit down to blog in quite a while. I’ve done a Goodreads Q&A session, the Broncos were obliterated in the Super Bowl, I’ve made some progress on Broken, and the groundhog saw his shadow. I’d say a lot has happened; lets catch up, shall we?

-I got the chance to do an awesome live Q&A on Goodreads. You can check out the conversation here. It was so much fun!

-The writing group I am a part of (The Greenwood Writer’s Group) has asked me to put together a page so we can invite new members! So, if you’re in the Greenwood area, come on out and join us!

-We are also gearing up for our first annual writers event! The Writers Unite Charity Event and Booksigning will take place on Oct. 25. Click the link for all the details! (There’s also a really cool Writing Contest we are hosting for students in grades 3-8!)

-I am working away on Broken (Book 3 in The Trusted Series) and hope to have it finished soon!

-I am considering entering Trusted and Destined in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. Considering is the key word. Any suggestions on this?

-I filed my taxes! (I know, not that exciting, but it took forever and I’m glad it’s done!) Also, this was the first year I got to add “Author” as part of my occupation. 🙂

-We got a new puppy! His name is Hunter. 🙂 He’s a Catahoula and although I wasn’t thrilled about another dog at first, I have to admit he’s growing on me.

And, I’m certain there has been a ton of other stuff that has kept me from blogging, but that’s the gist of it. Just checking in to let everyone know I’m still alive and kickin’.

In the mean time, here is my new motto:

Until next time. . .
