Week In Review: *Muffled Shrieking*

Hey everyone!

So this week, I got my Etsy store up and running, so you can check that out HERE if you want signed paperbacks. 

Something you might want to be part of: I was recently accepted to another honor society and as part of my induction, they recommended putting together a "goal-setting support team."  I thought it'd be a good thing to try out.  Basically, we'd meet online once every week or every other week, talk for a few minutes about our goals and any problems we have had achieving them, and give each other feedback and support.  Kind of like an accountability team as well.  If you are interested in being part of this group, please comment below or email me.  We'll probably use Facebook Messenger or email for the group "meetings" and just set a day where we can talk as opposed to a specific hour, thus alleviating issues with timezones and schedules.  Anyone interested?  Please let me know ASAP!

I'm also going to send out the first newsletter on Monday, so sign up HERE if you aren't on the list already.  I'm hoping to have the freebie book ready by October-ish for you all!

Whew.  With that out of the way, this week was...somehow a whirlwind and boring all at once.  I got a lot done but I suppose it was boring, thus the odd illusion I just mentioned.  As I said before, I set up my Etsy store, took care of schoolwork, had at least 3 panic-stricken days after receiving a flier in the mail about ordering a class ring from the university (read as: IT'S MY SENIOR YEAR HOLY MACKEREL) followed by the realization that this semester's GPA will determine what level of Latin honors I'll hold for graudation.  No pressure.  And I'm pretty sure I did a bunch of other things too, I just can't remember because I'm hung up on that whole "graduation" thing now that I thought about it again...oh, and I set up an online portfolio too. 

Currently Reading: Every Now & Then by Karen Kingsbury and Overcomer by David Jeremiah. 

Current Projects: I didn't write again this week...except for an article for my college's newspaper.

Current Bible verse:  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Hebrews 1:11 KJV).

How was your week?  Are you looking forward to fall, or are you more of a summer person?

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 …
