Shoot!  It's Wednesday, isn't it?  I completely forgot to write a blog post, even though I thought about it all week.  Whoops....

Anyway, I'm working hard on Something New for Camp NaNoWriMo, and it's at about 39,000 words right now (although I haven't begun working on it today so that number's probably gone up a little bit...hopefully).  I've mentioned before that music is a big part of my writing process, and this is one of my favorite series as far as music goes.  It has a lot of my favorite songs on here you go!  I've attempted to capture the general mood, feeling, themes, and aesthetic of the book in this playlist.  

Braver Still -- JJ Heller
Pieces -- Stars Go Dim 
If It's Amazing Grace -- Stars Go Dim
All I Have -- Stars Go Dim
Heaven on Earth -- Stars Go Dim
(I just really like Stars Go Dim, okay?!  Go check them out!) 
Primrose (From "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. 2") -- City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra
Your Favorite Color Is Green (From "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. 2") --City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra
Stampede -- Lindsey Stirling & Alexander Jean
Hidden Falls -- Taylor Davis (The inspiration for their first dance at the wedding...) 
Empty My Hands -- Tenth Avenue North
To Build A Home -- The Cinematic Orchestra
This Is Us Score Suite -- Siddhartha Khosla
Mine -- Taylor Swift
Busted Heart -- For King & Country
Without You -- For King & Country
It's Not Over Yet -- For King & Country

(....I also really like For King & Country.)

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.


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 …
