Week In Review: Life -- It Goes On

All in all, I guess that's all I can say.  Life goes on. 

(Credit to a Robert Frost quote for the title)

Well, I'm hoping to get back on track with the Wednesday blog posts on October 3rd.  The week before last was insane with studying for exams, and this week was when all 5 of those exams hit (not to mention the...5 or 6 sub-exams and normal assignments).  I actually would have been able to write this Wednesday, but it just turned out otherwise.  As I mentioned on the Facebook page (if you follow me on there), Wednesday I was waiting for the farm vet to come out for an emergency visit.  Unfortunately, the outcome was not favorable.  This is an older picture of the horse, but one I always liked.

I concur, Hawkeye.  (It's been a long week, more like).  

Anyway, hopefully next week isn't quite as catastrophic.  Before I get hung up on more college stuff (one class just posted a sizable exam for next week)--I was wondering what kind of content you'd like to see on Wednesdays.  So I'm asking you to vote before Oct. 3rd, either on here in the comments section or on whichever social media platform you'd like....
A) Behind the scenes for Guide Me Home 
B) Behind the scenes for Keeping Cassie
C) Writing tips for short stories, because of Everything And Nothing 
Sound off in the comments, and whichever gets the most votes will be covered first.  Thanks!

Currently Reading: Not that much.  I'm kind of brain-mush from this week...if you can't tell.  And if I randomly start typing in Spanish, that's because I was working on my Spanish exam before writing this and in at least one instance, I had to delete some text from the blog post because it was some weird Spanish-English mix...I don't know what I'm doing anymore. 

Currently Writing: Everything And Nothing.  Hey, one good thing about negative emotions from this week?  Great poetry angst mood there.  I could do without it though.

Current Bible Verse: "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen" (Ephesians 4:29 NIV).  In light of the current political atmosphere, I think it needs saying.  Regardless of which side of the aisle you err to, it's important to not let ourselves deepen the divide because we can't be prudent with our words.  

How was your week?  I feel like this is a loaded gun, but since that's how I roll, what are your thoughts on the current political atmosphere -- with Ephesians 4:29 in mind?

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 …
