Okay, gotta admit. I'm not one that normally looks for signs, but this morning, when I read the title of my devotional, I nearly did a back flip--I said NEARLY (envision a balled fist jerked down in a firm *YES!*)--when the title of the devotional read: NOW IS THE ACCEPTABLE TIME. Yeah, I know. Fleece, like the stuff lining your pillows and jackets. But hey, two nights before I'd try to write on the sequel to my space opera, but I felt like God put a hand on my shoulder and said, WAIT.
HUH??? Wait? SIGH. Fine. So, I waited. The next day I fasted. Then, this morning, I wake up with THAT as my devotional. Needless to say, I embraced it heartily. *insert boogie dance* Now, I naturally realize that God's NOW is different from mine. Look at Abraham and Sarah. Look at the children of Israel (ew, ew, ew, do we have to go there??). But still, I KNOW what God has told me. I KNOW where the space opera is going. It's really not that hard at all (anymore) to trust God. I'm at peace. Don't get me wrong. My humanity sometimes whacks me upside my head, and I start bawling, wondering why I haven't received THE CALL. But it's kewl. As my daughter says, I'm good.
Well, at crit group last night, I made a horrific discovery. My Genesis entry--somehow--unbelievably--has two POV errors. As soon as my eyes danced over the fateful lines, I saw them. My stomach ROILED! ARGGGGHHHHH!!!!! They're minor, but they are still glitches. so, alas, my entry is NOT perfect (*presses hand to brow and swoons*). I'm so disgusted. Don't ask me how they got past me in the first place. I KNOW better. There goes first place and $500 *cheeky grin*. OH...and any day now, I'm expecting a rejection from that agent I queried at the end of January with this space opera.
Okay...enough rambling. I'm not feeling up to par, and y'all are probably bored by now.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have an awesome weekend. As for me? I'll be packing...we move in 3.5 weeks. EEGADS. His grace is sufficient for me...His grace is sufficient for me...His grace is sufficient...
