Week In Review: Winners (Literal) and Losers (Metaphorical...?)

Hey everyone!  I want to start on a good note, so I'm announcing the winners of the giveaway!  Last week I announced the start of a giveaway for PDF copies of Beautiful Chaos and Something New.

The grand winner of our giveaway is the lovely Angela R. Watts of The Peculiar Messenger!  While I head off to email her prizes, why don't you give her a follow on Facebook?

No second-place winners to announce, according to Rafflecopter.

Now for the week in review:

This week was...a week.
My thoughts on this week are below, artfully captured in gif format.

(On a side note, I was thrilled to find this gem while I was looking for reaction gifs.  Never have I seen something that was so perfect for describing this week.  Or my reaction to it; either way.)  

 I was ready for time travel to be invented by Wednesday or so.  That was when I spent the better part of the day, from 9:00AM -2:00PM (when I just gave up and started on schoolwork), emailing and messaging back and forth with various folks from college because legitimately everything was going wrong.  Some other things started to work themselves out by midweek, I have to admit. But we're on Saturday now, so maybe the worst of the weird, the communication failures, the college class mishaps, and the unexpected are done with?  Like, for the year, please?

That being said, before I have to run off and do an exam that was, wonderfully, scheduled for over the weekend, some updates:

Currently Reading: Uh...nothing this week, but I just ordered  several books and I'm waiting impatiently for them to arrive.  Even though I just ordered them yesterday afternoon and they haven't shipped yet.  I'm still watching...and waiting.

Current Projects: Again, nothing this week.  Too much "putting out fires" and not enough "hey I have free time!  Yay!"

But let it be said that I had several things I wanted to work on.  Just couldn't this week.

Current Bible Verse: To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1, NKJV)

Oh, and make sure you check out these "ICYMI" announcements from Wednesday, HERE and HERE, about something I'm collaborating with H.S. Killian for!  I recommend just checking out the first link there, which is to her post.  Hers is about a hundred times more logical, and I haven't been able to elaborate further on mine because...well, see above dissertation.  

And make sure you sign up for my newsletter HERE.  The first of the monthly newsletters will be arriving to your inbox September 17th and I promise to be more upbeat, albeit still snarky (c'mon, that's who I am).  You'll also be put on a list to receive a free copy of Everything And Nothing once I get it published, which will be...sometime soon.  

How was your week?  Any exciting book mail that you're waiting for?  Sound off in the comments below!  I'll be checking in on the comments after I'm done writing my eulogy.  

(That caught your attention, right?  Eulogy?  It's for a college course, don't worry.  Somehow if we can write our own eulogies for communications class, we're golden for this week.)

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 …
