Spring Fever

A Writer's Corner

I have spring fever and that is not a good thing when we are told, not asked, “stay home!” due to the Coronavirus stuff. And yes, I have been doing that and enjoying playing in the dirt.

I’m not so sure my roommate feels quite the same way because she has not been active for a few years due to just trying to survive. The last couple of days we have had beautiful weather. Thank you Lord for the reprieve from all the rain.

Naturally I want to take advantage of the beautiful weather and the first day I told my roommate, “Get some old clothes and shoes on that you don’t care to get dirty. I’m putting your butt to work!”

I have several large “monkey grass” plants that line my walkway and they have gotten so big they needed to be moved.

Now that was no simple task…

Spring Will Come

Into the Foolishness of God

“Now is a time to find Jesus, hope, cultivate faith, groan for redemption, wait, and carry light and color into dark. Because there will be a time when you will no longer be standing at the window, searching, feet on the heater grate, heart groaning out of the weight of winter. You will be outside, with your face to the sky, arms raised to the Son. Your mouth will be filled with laughter, and your heartbeat will rise like a drumbeat to match your king’s. You will sing in rhythm with his heartbeat: The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad. And you will dance in the light and life of spring.” Christine Hoover 🌱🌱🌱

I woke up wondering if we will even have a spring. Big cancellations, bigger disappointments, general weirdness all around. No one is where they thought they’d be. 🌱Yesterday we read in…

I’m Ready!

A Writer's Corner

What a time we live in right now. Do you ever wonder what it will be like when all, or most, of the Christians are gone and the world faces a world where Satan is in command?

I have thought about that and to be honest, I can not even begin to imagine what will go on when I see the hatred, greed, and dishonesty that goes on now.

Watching the news, listening to people arguing and fighting over nonessential things during this pandemic of Coronavirus is astounding to me and yet it shouldn’t be, considering what an evil world we live in.

The Lord whispered in my ear as I stood gaping at empty shelves, “This is just a small sample of what is yet to come.”

Well, He also says we are to prepare. I’m ready…

I donned my hazmat suit and grabbed my Bible and off to…

My Epic Quest for Toilet Paper

Mitch Teemley

Due to the growing pandemic, most public gatherings in our area are cancelled. The public is making a run on local markets in preparation to stay at home. Toilet paper was the first thing to go! It all feels kind of primitive. Here’s my personal report:

Great sick-storm building. Tribe Healer say much cave and hut dweller maybe-sick. Big Spirit angry? (Probably Zug and his stupid boasting.) So we stay away from other maybe-sick tribe people. We stay in cave where nice and cozy. We make shadow pictures on wall, laugh much, pop roasted grubs on fire–my favorite!

But Neema complain she have no meadow grass for to wipe bottom-place-that-follow-her-wherever-she-go. She very clean. Much trouble. But look and smell better than me.

So I put on mammoth fur and go to Great Meadow where is much food and herb. It crazy there! I never see so many tribe…

Moving on Up

A Writer's Corner

Having submitted the one correction that I had, I’m not really surprised that I received the manuscript back in just three days for my approval of that one correction. Since it is only one correction instead of several the publishers editors usually do it right away.

So I checked it, okayed it, and clicked the “accept editing” for all of the corrections including the one I sent. This is THE benefit of having a publisher that will make no changes, not even a little one, without your approval.

So now my manuscript for Amy’s Quest is sent to the Illustration Department for the page design. What they do in that department is the type setting which is setting appropriate fonts and sizes, choosing the right character and line spacing, setting accurate page breaks so the pages look nice. My book doesn’t have any photo’s, charts, or drawings but it is…

Making a List…

A Writer's Corner

Making a list and checking it twice is really, really important.

I received my edited manuscript back today. Remember I received the manuscript with the publishers editing done and I was to go through it and was to make any changes that I wanted and to check their editing. Even professional editors can miss something. (and they did) It must be gone through word by word.

So I did that and sent back my correction sheet.

Here’s an example:

On the original manuscript I had: Amy lies on her bed and watches as

On my correction sheet I changed and added; Amy has finally stopped crying as she lies on her bed and watches as

Another example:

On the original manuscript I had; detective Collins and
his wife

On my correction sheet I dropped off – his wife and replaced with Susan. So it now reads: detective Collins and…
