Take a look behind you

Normally I do “This Writer’s Journey” on Fridays, but today, I had to post something my sweet Mother-in-Law wrote back in 1988. Today marks one week since she was laid to rest. She went home to Jesus Monday October 24th and we said our final goodbyes on Friday October 28th. During that funeral service, I took the podium and read a poem she’d written. The family found it while looking through old photographs. Those of you who may be new to the blog and don’t know my deep connection with my mother-in-law, her name is LYNN.  Yep, same as mine because[…]

Insecure Writer’s Support Group

It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. We post the first Wednesday of every month. I encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs. ~~~~ Thanks, Alex for starting this fun blog fest. I’m all about support and encouragement to help people through worries and fears. This is my first time participating in this and I wondered what the heck I’d write about. But then[…]

Once upon a time…

I write romance novels. As in fiction. Paranormal-Urban Fantasy-type fiction. But for the past fifteen years, I’ve been witness to a real-life fairy tale-type love story. My Mom & Dad-in law. My sweet MIL was admitted to the hospital this past week. Seems the cancer has started its final attack. At the moment she’s resting comfortably, surrounded by her two sons and her husband. My hubby sent me a picture that rocked my world. It helped me understand the whole idea of true love. The true meaning of through health and sickness, ups and downs, until death do us part.[…]

I’m in IOWA!

Okay, no Iowa jokes….well, only if they’re funny. Yep, I’m here in Iowa for a few weeks. I’m super excited, too, because I get to spend time with Charlie’s parents. You might remember Lynn from my posts about her here and here and here. Yeah, I kinda like her (and her son…LOL)  Anyway, I came to Iowa to hang out with her and help around the house as she works to get stronger after her big surgery so she can face another round of Chemo. Oh, and I’m sure we’ll be talking writing–JUST a little bit. Considering I have to[…]

Hopeful. . .

Back on January 18th of this year, I wrote a post, The Meaning of a Name. Now, I love names. Probably because I’m forever looking for the next unique name for my characters.  But my post back in January, I shared with you the reason for my name…Lynn Rush. For those of you who don’t know, that’s my pen name. I hope you click on that story if you haven’t read it because it’s in honor of my mother in law, Lynn. Today I write this post with another heavy heart. Lynn’s going through that same surgery today! 9am Central Time.[…]

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! Lynn Boeyink Okay, now I know you might be[…]
