Blessings!

I feel like God is constantly showering me with blessings lately. I'm amazed at what He has been bringing about in my life. I have been so incredibly blessed by joining American Christian Fiction Writers. Now I wonder why I debated about it for so long, whether or not to spend the money to join. It is well worth the membership price! Through it, I have opportunities for growth as a writer.

There are different 'loops' to join. They offer a writing workshop each month. They also have a loop for news, prayer requests, as well as a forum which is great for posting questions and finding answers from other writers - way cool. This month quite a number of us are taking the plunge and committing to write at least 10,000 words this month. That equates to about 40 pages, which doesn't seem like a lot. Many authors are choosing much higher goals, but I chose the suggested amount, just because I'm out of practice of regularly writing.

Just today I learned about a writing group for my geographic area as well as a group that specializes with 19th century America, which is my favorite time period to write about. I think I like that time period, because it was a simpler way of life. How I crave that! :)

Forgive me for going on and on about writing today. I usually keep these thoughts to my separate writing blog, but they just spilled over onto this one. I guess I just needed to share my joy!
