I’m still experimenting with updating each area in my blog’s tagline ( writing ~ faith ~ life ) and here’s how this past week went…

As I mentioned in my last update, I realized a couple of weeks ago that – at least in this moment of time – if I don’t write some fiction in the morning, the fiction doesn’t get written that day.
That realization, and admitting it to myself, led to making fiction writing part of my morning routine.
This is easier said than done, especially as I’ve been in the process of changing my night-time and morning routines to something that works for me… and something that’s different than anything my night and morning routines have been in a very-very-long time.
All of that is still very much “in process” and (for me) it can feel overwhelming to try to change lots of things at once… but I knew implementing a routine of morning-fiction-writing needed to be a priority.
So I made a plan and put it into place and it’s been working for me.
My overall morning routine is still something I’m trying to figure out, but I’m writing at least some fiction in the mornings – and that’s kept the writing momentum going.

With October over and my writing of Ephesians completed, this new month called for a new challenge. My writing of Ruth in September and Ephesians in October came about from a group I’m in – and this month, the group challenge consists of daily verses related to giving thanks.
I’m participating in the group challenge, but I’ve been so blessed by writing out complete books of Scripture, I decided to write the book of Philippians this month.
Philippians is very important to me personally, in large part because of how it helps with my anxiety.
So I’m writing verses and passages about gratitude and thanksgiving, and I’m also copying out the book of Philippians… spending time in the word of God.

Last week, my husband and I celebrated 30 years of marriage.
And the overflow of that joy spread to everything else.
