Yesterday I sent in a requested three-book proposal. I now have 3 proposals out there for a total of 5+ books. Please pray that God would open the right doors at the right time, and give me lots of wisdom as I'm in a waiting period. There are still many things I can do now to prepare for when those contracts come in...like...
I took last night off to scrapbook with a friend. I love to scrapbook, but being me, tend to do everything a bit overboard. So instead of having a family album, I have that, plus separate albums for each child. When they head off to college, they'll each have 4-5 albums filled with memories of growing up. Abigail already has 3 and she's just 7! It felt great to get the family album caught up through 2005. I'm sad it's that far behind, but I'm catching up. :-) And enjoyed the chance to be creative in that fashion.
I'm also reading some non-fiction. I don't take as much time for pure fun reading of non-fiction as I'd like. I'm reading Man O'War -- if I had the book in front of me I'd tell you the author. It is really well written. It tells a complex story in a way that keeps me turning the pages. In honor of reading that I watched the first half of Seabiscuit while scrapping. I LOVE that movie. They did a masterful job of translating a complex book onto the screen. Laura Hildreth did a wonderful job with the book, and I love the features at the end of the movie. Those often tend to be my favorite part as I get a behind the scenes look at why the producers and directors chose to do things the way they did.
I've always loved horses. Wouldn't be surprised if sometime I have a series set around a horse farm or race track. I've also got a book on Secretariat that I'll dive into next. I so love the step back in time! And when you had amazing thoroughbreds to the mix, it's just about perfect!
So what are some of your passions?
