Hello everyone! How are you on this rainy Tuesday? It has been a crazy few days - the weeks leading up to the anniversary date were the best I've had on this 17 year journey while Sunday, the 3rd seemed to crash around me. Yet I needed that too, and God knew it. Many bottled tears, fears and stressers were released and laid at his feet.
So goes Monday, so goes the week! Well Monday was redeeming. Between getting into the dentist because they had a cancellation to have my tooth fixed, hearing from the agent (she was more than understanding for my blunder), and my mom was feeling better - a great way to start the week. I talked with news channel 9, they called for an update and enjoyed a wonderful conversation with one of my friends (to whom I have talked to in months). The day didn't go as planned yet God blessed me with the change.
The afternoon ended with joining my NYSUT family and others to show our solidarity before I went to my last memoir writing course. I received honest and helpful critique and positive comments. Although we didn't conclude until after 10:30 p.m. - it was worth every toothpick used to keep my eyes open. ;)
I have some more photos from my wedding album from Heidi and have decided to share a few more between now and Easter. I also have found some other photos that highlight her personality, and mine. Thank you for your prayers, posts and encouragement. It has been a blessing to my entire family. ;)
Yesterday's Writing Accomplishment: (Friday - sent book proposal out for the first time to an agent) Finished Chapter 8, finally! Attended last Memoir Writing class for our sharing session. Received great critique for the 2,000 words I shared. Confirmed a weekly "Writer's Night Out" with a woman from class and read through newspaper clippings from 4/3/94 - 4/6/94
Today's Writing Goal: Certificates for ORC writing contest printed and attached, finish reading newspapers - read Gram's journals for first few days and any notes I might have journaled, research and recording for next couple chapters
Tomorrow's Writing Goal: Start writing Chapter 9
