Journey of Choice 012

If you’re subscribed to my writing newsletter, then you know that nope, I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year. 🙂 I haven’t done it yet, actually, as Novembers tend to be super busy for our family. BUT… I am going to try really hard to get 20,000 words done in Choice. Already I’m lagging a little behind and need to step it up. Prayers really appreciated as I’m in the home-stretch!

 

 

 



What is one of your favorite things about the Civil War era?

Journey of Choice 011

Time for more quotes! One of the things that I “dreaded” the most about writing Choice was the battle scenes. I’m not so sure I’m doing a swell job with the rough draft, but it’s coming. In fact… I think I like writing fighting scenes!

 

The following quote about the Hornet’s Nest is true history. A regiment is supposed to be 1,000 men. From what I’ve researched, The 18th Missouri never really reached full strength. But after the Hornet’s Nest, there were only about 300 men left in the regiment who were not killed or captured.

*spoiler alert* Yes, one of my characters that is close to Nat ends up captured by the confederates in this chapter! 🙂

Before I share more quotes, I just have to say, y’all are an amazing encouragement! I’ve not really shared many WIP’s as I go along… there is the pressure of people wanting me to finish this, and I’m just trusting in God to help me reach “the end.” 🙂 In the meantime, enjoy another glimpse of Nat’s life, and thank you for your encouragement and excitement!!

 

Yeah, I’m liking Zeke and Nat’s relationship. Kind of an antagonistic type of love. And then, let me introduce you to one of my top favorite characters. This guy is loosely inspired by my younger brother, Samuel. 😉

 

And another character who “popped up” there is Gregory. He’s not a favorite of mine, but he serves a purpose, so he needs some room to shine.

The following quote is between Grits and Camden. Those two… I envision their relationship and am hoping to get that idea clearly on paper.

Fall Freebies and Deals!

Trust me, ALL I want to do was forget all this “business stuff,” find a swing, and read. The weather is gorgeous right now!! But… I used a little bit of self-control.

How many of you like to read when the weather gets cool and snuggly? I’m definitely there! Guess what? I’ve linked up with several authors from Clean Indie Reads and there’s a pretty sweet sale going on right now. You can find all the info (you know, for freebies and discounted prices) HERE. I haven’t read many of these books so I can’t personally endorse them, but you can look through and decide what suits you. 🙂

 

Oh yeah, some of my books are there. 😉 Coffee Cake Days and Letters from a Scatter-Brained Sister are free. Journey to Love is discounted $.99.

Other books to look out for at CIR are by my author-friend, Faith Blum. If you like Western romances, there ya go. 😉 You’re welcome! 😀

 

 

Journey of Choice 008

I haven’t been doing so well keeping this blog updated. My apologies.

Right now, I’m back to focusing on writing Journey of Choice.  I’ve had some rough days, but God has been so very gracious in helping me get past those and I’m making good progress once again.

For those of you who like stats, here are a few:

  • I’m at a little over 24,000 words
  • I just started chapter 14
  • I have no clue what my “goal” word count or chapter count is. 😉
  • I’m really liking side-characters Camden and Grits 😉

Now for some quotes. Some of these I’ve already shared on here, but they’re improved — in graphic form. 😉 These are also going backwards from chapter one (I know, some of you have already read excerpts up to chapter six; bear with me!)
