Week In Review: April Showers Are Actually Marvel Fan-Tears

Next week is the final week of classes before finals officially begin.
I need to get a move-on with a story idea I intend to send to publishing houses this summer.
And...
I just watched Avengers: Infinity War yesterday.

The culmination of 10 years' worth of movies. I won't say anything more than that, except that if you're a Marvel fan you need to turn off your social media because there are a lot of trolls posting very real spoilers online, and it's a movie well worth watching spoiler-free. And I'm very glad that the next movie is coming out in just a year because...you'll see.  If you aren't a Marvel fan, I apologize--rant over in a second. If you are a Marvel fan, this one's for you guys. You'll need a hug after you see the movie.

That aside....

Currently reading: Still the Star Wars book--it's not that it isn't interesting, I just haven't had the time to read it.  Ugh! 

Current projects: I'm working on My Compass Home edits and this week I finished the first (horrendously rough) draft of Something New.  ICYMI, this week I also self-published the play I've mentioned a couple of times, "A Town Nativity" and it is now available for purchase.  Finally, I'm working on that manuscript I mentioned above.  I have no clue how many words I wrote this week, but it was a lot and I was actually starting to get a callous on one of my fingers from drawing it back and forth across pages for prolonged periods of time...

Current Bible verse:  "Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses.  He calms the storm, so that its waves are still."  (Psalm 107:28-29)  Calm...stillness...sounds like a great idea to me.  Good luck to any college students starting finals -- or high school students heading into the last month of school!

...Frankly, I can't really think of anything else news-worthy that happened this week, so I'm just going to leave it at that.  My brain's zapped from the four-hour-long psychology statistics exam I had yesterday.  Long story short: the coding software hates me and I hate it, so I suppose we're even. 

How did you guys' Camp NaNo goals turn out this month?  What are your plans for the weekend?  Or (spoiler-free, please, for the sake of those who haven't seen it yet) thoughts on the new Avengers film?

Week In Review: From Zero to Sixty

I wish I would have thought about taking a picture of my class to-do list this week before I started crossing things off, because it totally filled an entire copy page...with small handwriting. But the important thing is that it's done with.  Mostly. For another week.

 Anyway.

Currently reading: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comics and Star Wars: The Last Jedi by Michael Reaves.  (Non-canon.) I'm also reading Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, partly for school and partly out of interest due to the Thor movies by Marvel (although it's Loki I'm reading up on). 

Current projects: My Compass Home, formatting A Town Nativity for publication, and I'm getting ready to start play practices for my church's 150th anniversary play.  I honestly don't know how many words I wrote this week, but between this week and last, I filled half of a composition book and then wrote on the computer some as well, if that counts for anything. 

Current Bible verse: Peace I leave with you, …

Blog Tour: Review of "Beyond Her Calling" by Kellyn Roth!

Hey everyone! Instead of the boring "writing tips" post that I had planned for you guys this week, I am excited to be reviewing Kellyn Roth's new release, Beyond Her Calling, as part of the her blog tour. This was a beautiful book and I loved pretty much every part of it. Let's get to it, then!
Beyond Her Calling "At twenty, Ivy Knight feels as if she hasn't accomplished anything of worth. Her life stretches on before her, empty and pointless. Though her faith in God and her mental abilities have strengthened, she still doubts herself. Does God have a purpose for a socially awkward, often confused and frightened young woman?
Jordy McAllen has just returned to Scotland after his education in London. Though he has accomplished a lot for a farm lad such as himself, he fears that what everyone has always said about him may be true: he won't really make a good doctor. Determined to prove himself, Jordy snatches up the opportunity to become the doctor in …
