I've spent the morning poisoning two of my characters. Not an easy thing to do:) But it's for their ultimate good. I was reading through the manuscript and hit a dull patch and this was just the remedy. I decided to poison them on a whim, fully intending to take the scene out if it didn't work, but it seems to have worked. Oh, those poor people we create! We just heap trouble upon trouble atop them. I'm glad I'm the author instead.
Sometimes it's just plain work to keep that manuscript moving. I tend to want to go off on narrative tangents and internal monologue like this here which can slow the tension and action down mightily and lose readers like you...
Though some, like my beloved friend, Mary Bailey, say they like my more narrative style:) Bless you for that!
Speaking of remedies, I've come up with a solution for my schedule. I'm going to have to cut back on blogging so often. I'll be here a couple of times a week should you miss me. Although considering all the blogs out there you might not:) Just think of me writing furiously behind the scenes which is what I dearly love.
Speaking of wonderful blogs, I've made some new artist friends whose blogs bless me immensely and thought I'd share them here. We've become acquainted through The Frontiersman's Daughter. Laurie is from Texas, Nancy lives in Alabama, and Heather is from Oklahoma. If you take the time to visit, I know you'll be blessed!

When I see the art of these ladies I'm so thankful God gifts each of us to do something for His glory. And I'm thankful these women reached out to me because of a simple book! Each of them are in the sidebar under my blogs of note so you can get there in a quick click:)
