Hello readers! I just wanted to give you guys a heads up on some changes happening with the blog.
I’ve grown and changed a lot since beginning this blog back in July of 2009, and I’ve been thinking, it’s time it grew and changed with me.
The first change I’m sure you’re all wondering about is the name. Why did I change the name? Well, because this blog isn’t just about writing now. Yes writing will still be a big part of it, but it is no longer the main part, and for me, the name just didn’t fit anymore. My goal as a writer will continue to be writing for the glory of Jesus Christ, that will never change, nor will the main purpose of this blog, to encourage a new generation of writers to join me in writing for His glory. Because of all the changes in my life, my goals, and my writing, I just believe it’s high time to give this place an update.
I have lots of new plans for the blog. One will be to share recipes as I begin a journey of learning to cook my favorite things without sugar, and eventually, without wheat. I will be adding another page called “Creations” for easy access to these recipes.
I also plan on adding new writing categories to help with world development, character development, story development and a few other things.
Another thing that has changed a lot are my books. That page is due for an upgrade, as well as “Book List” and “Research Tools”. My about me page needs an update too… Pretty much all my pages will be getting an update.
I also plan on adding more pages and categories as my life continues to change. I have lots of new ideas for this blog and I am excited to see where it goes this year. Who knows, maybe I’ll be writing on here more. 🙂

Hey readers! Check out this awesome giveaway on a friend’s blog!
After 4 years of sporadic posts containing everything from my art to short stories to musings to random thoughts – my blog has now reached 10,000 views!
To all of you viewers who are not foreign spammers or my mom (although yes, Mom, I do appreciate you…), I bid you a hearty thanks! In fact, I would like to do more than just write thank you. How about…
That’s right, I would like to use this milestone as an excuse – *ahem* – I mean… an opportunity to give away something that I love greatly and know you will too.
A Donald Miller book! 😀
To correct myself, not just one, but three Donald Miller books!
You ask: How can it get any better??
Answer: It can’t.
Copying and pasting from Amazon, here are the descriptions of the three books:
Through Painted Deserts is a road-trip memoir about…

First – I’m back! 🙂 Vacation was absent of business. Oh! What bliss! And, my grandparents bought me a sword! I’m in heaven! My first stainless steel blade. Here is a picture:
It’s a short sword replica of a Medieval Broadsword. 17″ blade and over all length is nearly 23″. I’ll take a real picture of it some time soon and post it. 🙂 Second (incase you are wondering) – I did work a bit on Stephen of Scarborough part 20 while away, and the whole part will be posted on Wednesday.
Thirdly – Revision on my novel is resuming. Don’t really know how I feel about it. I’m just tired and have let myself wonder away. I gave it back to God last week and felt encouraged, but it’s an ongoing battle I have to fight every day. I don’t hate the novel, actually, I like it a lot more than I use to, it’s just a LONG HARD process, and my very first novel, not to mention very first time revising a novel. I’m learning as I go, which takes a lot longer then you would think. I guess the good news is I have 3 1/2 chapters left, and nine weeks left before my dead line, (and I WILL meet this one.)
Lastly – I’m looking forward to getting back into a more organized routine. This blog, my new blog (www.connectthedotsablog.wordpress.com), and the novel are all very important to me and things I really feel God has called me to do. The problem with keeping up and continuing has been me, I’m a lazy, selfish, want’s what I want sinner. It’s a hard lesson to learn that you can’t do everything yourself, or control everything for that matter, but I’ve been learning it, slowing, but I’m learning.
That’s it for now. I hope you all had a great Easter!
