Searching for a New Story

Good morning Fans,
I don't have a story again today. Sorry. I was going to get some of "Hymns in the Hills" ready, but that didn't happen. I think it's because I'm missing a day or two. Not sure which days, but it can't be Friday already.

This week has been busy teaching Writing Classes and getting things ready for the Widows' Luncheon that was supposed to happen tomorrow, but due to a forecast of freezing rain tonight and tomorrow, we had to decide to postpone it. (Many people live a distance away.) So that'll hopefully take place next Saturday. But things didn't get decided until last night.

I worked in Cubbies on Wednesday night, so I didn't get anything written.
Earlier this week I heard that a cover designer was having a sale on all her pre-made covers. So off I went to look at them. Well I saw one. Actually there was more than one. But there were two I really liked, but one in particular caught my eye. But I didn't have a story that fit it. So the search began. Could I come up with and write a story for that cover? I figured if I could at least get a good start on one, I could get the cover and then finish the story. Well I started writing on Tuesday and got 1k written of a story. But after looking at the cover again yesterday, I don't think this story will fit it. So I either start again, or I forget it. Not sure what I'll do. I also have Hymns in the Hills that needs written. And eventually I'll have to write my June and July stories.

Oh, the other thing you might be interested in is the Christmas story that I finished, got corrected and am working with a cover designer. I would have done the cover myself, but all I could think of was a burning barn. Not exactly what you'd think of for a Christmas cover, right? And this is a different sort of Christmas story. It takes place in AZ.

If you haven't already heard, my February story is now published. I just haven't added it to my website. Maybe I can do that this afternoon. It's called "Forget Not."

Well, hopefully I'll have something for you next week.

Have you been writing anything?
Do you have bad weather forecasted for tomorrow?
Have you been reading any interesting books?

Yes, I've been writing! In between reading, that is. ;) I've got one story that I'm reaching the end of the first draft. Then I'll clean it up a little and let it sit before I tackle it again. It was originally supposed to be about 10,000 words. It's over 40,000 now. =D
I don't know what's forecast for tomorrow, but if it's anything like it has been, no bad weather here. Though I'm not sure I think there's such a thing as bad weather. =P
Yes, I'm reading some interesting books. Right now the most interesting one I'm reading is "Make a Joyful Sound" by Helen E. Waite. It's an authorized biography of Alexander Graham Bell and his wife Mabel Hubbard Bell. It's amazing. What little we've learned in history about Alexander Graham Bell didn't give me a very accurate picture of him. =)
I hope your luncheon turns out well when it happens. =)
Thanks for another interesting post!

Great job on your writing! Isn't it fun when your stories grow longer than you thought they would? Of course if you were trying to keep it a certain length, then it can get frustrating. ;)
We got ice. It came in a very light mist and froze on everything. On Saturday morning things just looked wet, but they were ice. The mist continued all Saturday. Church was cancelled Sunday because everything was still so slick.
That sounds like an interesting book.
Glad you enjoyed this post.

I'm always delighted when someone else falls in love with the characters from my first book. :) Yes, Ed and Phil are some of my favorite characters as well. I had so much fun writing about Uncle Philip Vincent Bartholomew Wallace III. Poor Phil, imagine having to write his name out on school papers, or things of that sort!

Thanks for commenting!
