First, I have to admit that I didn't want to post.
Why, you ask?
Because...I don't want anyone to forget about BFF Sara Mills and her new journey. So, if you're stopping by for the first time in a while, please take a moment and read the previous post about how you can help my sweet, crazy, Canadian friend.
Okay--well, my biggest point for today is that I've got an article posted over at NovelJourney on Psychology in Writing. It's a subject near and dear to my heart since that's what I earned my bachelor's degree in (and hope to get my master's in some day!). I'm not a psychologist, but I believe God gifted me with understanding people, something I believe translates strongly in my writing. So hope on over there and check it out!
And this is just something I gotta share. Mother's Day is coming up, and yeah...we've had a ton of family drama (I'm learning that I've become the "strict" mother whose children are ready to ditch the nest...*sigh* Yeah, I need some ointment for that "burn"!), but it was so kewl when my mother-in-law emailed me the other day. They're celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary with a cruise of the Greek Isles (MAJOR DROOL here, right?!?!?!?).
And guess what my precious MIL requested for Mother's Day--a printed and autographed copy of the Dead Reckoning manuscript(my book that will be released in 2010 by Abingdon Press) to take on the cruise with her and read. HOW KEWL and humbling is that?!?!?
Seriously, it put me to tears. It also scares me. LOL What if she reads it and hates it--or hates ME! (okay, I know that's irrational, but hey, I can't help it.) In reality, this is a good preamble to the reaction of readers at large. I'm nervous, but excited!
