For the last part of July, I was determined to get my writing back on track. I chose to write a fun little story about the day to day life of two females becoming friends with a huge disadvantage of one being a dwarf and one being an orc. I had a great time and want to continue with that but not as often. I will try to make Wednesday as my story telling day. Of course, warning, I tend to be very spontaneous and may get out of order. Besides, friends, family, life, church, and puppy tend to want tons of my time and I like to be there for all of them. But I will try for once a week.
What I really want is to be working on my second novel. I have 80,000 words already finished and only have 30,000 words left. My plan was to have it done by February…2015. Now I will be happy to get it done by next February…2016. Life keeps throwing me curve balls. But I will try to write a blog post every Friday about my work on the novel. It will just be short and to the point.
When I first started the blog about four years ago (with a yearlong break), my goal was to write about my journey to holiness. I loved the process. I still love the idea of the blog topics, but I want more. Part of my journey in life encompasses my writing fiction work as well as anything theological. So, I am going to go back to the roots of my blog and on Monday write a post about other things nonfiction. One of the topics I have wanted to write about is mental illness. It is a very scary topic, but also very near to my heart.
So, my followers, the new schedule of my blog will be as follows: Monday is nonfiction, the world according to Lisa during her journey; Wednesday is the further adventures of Argora and Vilenok; and Friday is updates on “Pursuing Knowledge.” Please, feel free to hold me accountable to getting it done. Also, I would love your comments on this post and all postsJ
