If you don't understand the title of this post, no fear; you'll understand by the time this is done. :D
First of all (of many, that is), I am BACK! Yes. :D Can you tell? I've been back for a while, but the intoxicating combination of heated writing, amazing books (Jeffrey Overstreet!), and internet problems lured me away from the blog.
My first mission trip, for those of you who were wondering, went wonderfully. I may post a debriefing post on my other blog soon, so keep a lookout.
Second, my editing on Novel #1 has gone officially fantastic! I've rewritten in nearly 3500 words today alone. And I have finally found a title (a working one, at least), after many days (or years) of searching; Quest for the Kingdom.
Give me your opinion on it! :D
Third, J. R. Parker's book, Kestrel's Midnight Song, was just endorsed by Wayne Thomas Batson! That makes me jump. Strange. Anyway, he compared it to Paolini's writing, so if that doesn't interest you, than nothing will. Click here to check out his post on it.
Fourth (yes, I know--this is getting long), it is far too hot here in the Midwest.
Fifth, these select lyrics, from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, always tickle my funny bone. :D
When I think of his last great battle
A lump comes to my throat
It takes a man who knows no fear
To wrestle...with a goat
At the time, they [the brothers] were speaking of Joseph and his blood-stained coat. It makes me laugh so much. :D
Sixth, would you, readers, mind if I posted a review on a nonfiction book? Obviously, it's good enough for me to post a review on it, and yes, it's a Christian book. But I'm not going to reveal the title just yet. :)
Lastly, my followers jumped while I was gone. Only one more follower until I reach the big 25. And then... *evil laugh*
Something Tolkienish shall happen... Moohahaha. :D
[PS; For those of you who didn't get the 'Probably Texas' bit, I went to Arlington, Texas on my mission trip.]
