The first month of 2018 comes to an end. Is it insane or what? This year started with me making and praying about a lot of goals I’m praying to reach – I want to glorify God and do my best always. January was a difficult month – but it held goodness, too. Yahweh is always good.
In January, our beloved Ulu went home to Yahweh. It was very, very difficult – Kody came in yelling she fell into the frozen pond and things just… fell from there. It is a long story and my soul still feels tired to try and explain it. In the end, we fought hard and so did God and Ulu, but we had to put Ulu down. I do find joy in the fact that heaven gained one incredibly kind curly mare.
- I earned my blue belt. Kody got his green belt AND HE PLACED TOTAL HIGHSCORE IN THE POINTS! AHH!
- Did my first live speed shop on my mom and sis’ Paparazzi Facebook page! If y’all wanna see my face and REALLY NICE JEWELRY be sure it check it out, yo!
- It snowed. Not too much and it wasn’t too good for snowballs but it was still OK.
- School, school, some more school.
- Went baby gift shopping with Mom and Tory. So fun! And cute.
- Babysat, as usual… my nieces are the greatest… and Kody’s a good uncle because this happened:
World Of Writing
Whew. What a month as far as words went. 😉 I got some final feedback/emails from my amazing betas on Seek. I have a few more to hear back from but all is well because not only are they sweet… but I started having major tech issues – the Google Doc blocked us from touching it. SO. I had to copy/paste the rest of the chapters for everyone and I can’t edit/resolve comments… but the journey goes on! God is with me and no difficulties can stop me, because God is with me. 🙂 The feedback from my betas is helpful, useful, and I am very grateful to each of you! God bless and a big hug! My plans for Seek is a bit up in the air but I am praying to have the edits finished up by the end of April. I may use it as my Camp NaNo project.
I wrote in Jump some more this month and actually did a post where I introduced my baby so… go check it out. ASAP. I plan on finishing Jump in February and then putting it aside for a break before editing it, sending it to alphas, etc.
This month of January was a blessing in my writings. I’ve set goals. I’m praying. I’ll do a post about this all later, so hang tight!
I read a total of seven books in January and they were all amazing!
