This Writer’s Journey

Writing is a journey, one I truly love and enjoy, but it can sometimes feel rather lonely. Hour after hour, alone, at the computer, pouring your heart and soul into each word. But I’ve learned I’m not alone, in fact, I’ve been blessed to be in contact with some amazing people, both writers and non-writers.

I want to share a bit of that with you. Each week I’ll be spotlighting someone I’ve come in contact with during my journey. Thanks for stepping along side of me—all of you—during this exciting time!

Dry Ground

It’s pretty interesting how Lori and I crossed paths. Total God thing, you know? I get this random email asking about writing. Somehow, she tracked me down when she moved to Arizona. She’d decided to take the next step in writing and sought out some fellow writers.

I happened to respond and since then, I count her as a very close friend. Both in relation to writing and non-writing!

Early in our friendship, we embarked on a getaway out to California to attend a small writer’s conference. The four-hour journey allowed tons of time to get to know one another.

Lori’s got a fantastic story, but one thing that stood out to me during that time is her ability to see into things. What I mean is, she can take a concept, movie, song…whatever…and find a deeper meaning behind it.

It’s freakishly amazing. You should head over to Dry Ground. That’s her blog. Click on the LESSONS I LEARNED WHILE READING A VAMPIRE SAGA on the right column and you’ll see what I mean.


Though she’s moved away from Arizona, we still stay in close, For that I’m grateful.

I can only wait until the day we meet again. Thanks, Lori, for stepping along side me during this crazy, awesome, scary, fun road to publication.


Musical Monday

So, my friend, Lori, had this awesome Toby Mac song on her blog last week. Now, I’ve loved Toby Mac for a long time, but when I watched the video Lori had posted, I fell in love with Toby Mac all over again.

After watching it, I went right to iTunes and downloaded four songs. I’ve been listening to them non stop since.

So thanks, Lori, for re-introducing me to Toby Mac.

Here’s my choice for Musical Monday

City on Our Knees by Toby Mac.





Have a great Monday, everyone!

Circle of Friends Award

Ahhh, my sweet friend, Michelle Sutton, honored me with this award.


Ever meet someone who makes you smile when they do? My friend, Michelle, does that. How ’bout someone who makes you giggle when they do? Yep, she does that as well.

When I joined ACFW and then its local Chapter CWOW, I got to know her better. She’s become a good friend and such a great encourager on my writing journey as well.

Okay, I’m supposed to list five things I love to do. Gosh, there are quite a few things I enjoy doing, but here are a few:

1. Road biking wth my sweet hubby.

2. Writing

3. Reading

4. Hanging with my friends (both in person and online chats)

5. Listening to music

God has brought so many wonderful people into my life, I’d like to mention just a few:
