About Me

I'm a writer and library worker who wears many hats. I believe a good book and a good piece of chocolate are the keys to a happy life.

Another New Adventure

In the past week or so I wanted to upload a video I put together to go with a marvelous Christmas message. My sadly lacking computer skills failed me and it wouldn't upload. So, you missed my very uplifting Christmas message. Oh well. Best laid plans of mice and men and all that.
I am still finding myself knee deep in various writing projects and they are beginning to wear on me a bit- they're starting to take the fun out of writing for me so I'm working on refocusing on the blessings this week.
One project that I've taken on is definately falling in the blessing category. I've slowly been adding my voice to the wonderful contributing authors on ldsblogs.com. You can find my entries at http://discipleship.ldsblogs.com/. It's been a wonderful chance to refocus on the gospel when my writing is currently surrounded by the cares of the world. I appreciate the opportunity they've given me to share my testimony and thoughts.
If you're reading this, take a moment to share: what is the greatest blessing you get from being a writer? I need my cup filled, but I fear there might be a leak at the bottom.

I haven't figured out the blessings of writing yet. I am feeling like I don't like it so much right now, being at the end of the semester. So theres a fill up for ya--at least you are out of school!!

She's doing a fantastic job at it too. Be sure and drop and check out the blogs she's written about being a disciple of Christ.

Alison, if you're feeling this burned out, maybe you need to take a little time off and recharge. When you come back, your writing will be that much stronger.

Rooting for you!

Judy, You're right- you've got more guts than me. I'd never dream of getting *grades* on my writing!
Thanks Candace, it's good to know that something I'm doing is having the needed effect.
Tristi, you read my mind! I just recently came back from a self impossed isolation vacation (for many reasons). It did wonders for my spirit and creativity.
