Good day all, we are on the eve of Nanowrimo and I am participating this year. I will be rewriting a story I began years ago and will be updaating my writing and progress over at quiet writer which can be found here http://debswritingcorner.blogspot.com/
I hope you all will hope over there and hit follow as we go through this month writing and getting ready for thanksgiving.
Goodness it has been a while since I have been here. Thank you all for sticking with me here as I wander to places unknown. Seeing my last entry was back in January I realize so many things have happened. A divorce, a death of a loved one and a new relationship started. Now I am and have been considering grouping all of my blogs in one spot. I was wanting to create one just for my story and book updates and other writing pieces and one for the daily thoughts.
( sorry about the high lighting- I have been trying to get rid of it.)
First I want to thank all of you who continue to read my blogs, and continue reading even through the hard times and gaps of the entries. And I hope you continue reading and hopefully learn from what I share or enjoy reading what I share.
Now second on to today's post:
Don't we all love the new year and a fresh start? After all it is the perfect time to start over or find a ne
For those who dont know what nano is, its National Novel Writing Month, and I have undertaken that challenge. It is a fiction story based on nonfiction experiences. In the past I was always able to find answers to things happening in my life, and I'm hoping this will help me find the next direction in my journey.
I always discover new things when I write a story, so we will see what new things I learn after I finish this story. Again sorry I have been absent.
Anxiety 1 Peter 5:7 “ Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
Now part two, of this journey. Today we talk about anxiety. Each day while I was waiting for a place of my own, I heard nothing. No phone calls no letters nothing. Soon days went to weeks and weeks into months. Finally after a misunderstanding regarding my name I got a place- a month before the month I was to have surgery and would be off my feet.
But those months anxiety filled me so bad noth
Hey there everyone. I could have named this curve ball 2 but then what would that really tell you. This year has not been one I planned for or expected. It took me 9 months - from January to now to begin to see the path and journey I have been on. And starting tomorrow I will be sharing some of the lessons I have learned and am learning as I recover from foot surgery. It was not as cut and dry as one might think. Hope you are still with me and I look forward t
Recently I began this blog to share my thoughts on writing and other short pieces. Well recently my husband has been diagnosed with lung cancer, and the blogs and web sites that I have started and found to be the center of my life have taken a slight back seat.
While I am still writing so I am not hoovering over my husband, the projects I am working on have changed. Marla will still be worked on, however Father God I believe has led me into a new direction with my writi
This has been a trying 6 months. To begin the whole down slide a few months back my husband and I had a really bad cold. The only thing that lingered when it was all said and done was a cough. Well we didn't think much of it at first. But when it didn't go away my husband went in to get it checked out.
Turns out he discovers there's a spot on his lung and the doctors wants to do more tests. At first I really didn't think much of it but over the months sense I've seen my strong
I just added Chapter three of Molly's Journey this afternoon, and will be working on a sequel next month during Nanowrimo. Molly travels from Australia to the US and helps bring equal rights to women here. The details are still unknown but that's the fun of Nanoing, figure those things out as you go. This new one will be on Amazon Kindle next year.
Hello to those who find there way here. I just looked at the dates and saw it has been almost five months sense I have posted anything. For that I am sorry. I have been working such things as improving my writing skills as well as working on a few free stories for you to read if you want something to read while you wait for the next book to appear on Amazon.
I will be taking a free online course in writing starting tomorrow and will last a few weeks.
This is one of the best Erma Bombeck quotes and it is perfect for Moms day. Happy Moms day to all the moms ..
When God Created Mothers
by Erma Bombeck Whken God Created Mothers Quotes (showing 1-2 of 2) “When God Created Mothers"
When the Good Lord was creating mothers, He was into His sixth day of "overtime" when the angel appeared and said. "You're doing a lot of fiddling around on this one."
I have been absent here for a while, for those who follow regularly I am sorry. I have a new job, that of no fiction writer. I have three books under my belt but in doing these books I think I see a theme I had not seen before.What is that theme you ask?
God life force running through me regardless of what I write. So far I have written about adopting dogs, finding a cats potential and how to simplify your home, the one I just submitted was about backyard veggie gardening, the
Hey all today I am guess posting at breaking the window I hope you check it out. You can find it here http://www.breakingthewindow.com/2014/03/abuse-survivor-debra-johnson-story.html
It deals with my abuse and how I dealt with it and hat i did to get threw each day. Dealing with abuse is a hard thing to go thru and not many make it to the other side. I would like to think im one of those. However the abuse caused several other issues I am currently dealing with. Things
Trust. It’s something we all have. Or should have. But what about abuse victims such as myself? It is harder than most to start trusting others again after we have been abused and hurt. For we have no idea who we can trust. That’s because often times our trust has been broken by someone we did not fear or expect would hurt us.
Sometimes the attacks come on quickly as to catch us off guard. But other times and in my opinion and experience, it happens over time allowing a relationship betwee
This blog post is related to another friends blog and is entitled “The last 30 days”
The original question came from Carley at Worship Melodies. Her question was “If you just had 30 days left how would you spend them.”
Okay oftentimes I find myself day dreaming about the future and all the things I could do, want to do, or will do…in the future. But do we really have “the future”? We aren’t even guaranteed our next breath. Job 14:5..." Man's days are determined, you
It is only the 28th of Jan but I have already fallen behind in our yearly readings. But Thanks to Eileen and her suggesting YouVerse, I am catching up quickly.
Any way as I read Gen 12, I again stopped to reflect on what I could learn from the story. In the story Abram was told by God to travel to another land, but when he came upon the land which belonged to the Pharaoh, he instructed Sarai to lie and say that he as her brother, in order to spare his life.
I don't know how many know about my school issues but last December because it was getting too much and I stopped and took a break. Well now I am interested in going back. I spoke to an adviser and filled out the financial aide and will know something next week.
Not being in school and not finishing was driving me crazy, so I am finishing my degree on-line. Will let you know how things progress.
Well 2013 is behind us and a fresh new year is ahead of us. This year has been better then I expected as I had two books published and up for sale. But as of 2 minutes before midnight my newest Christian book went live on Kindle and I'm way excited. It's a 52 week Devotional and is perfect for the starting of a new year. Here is the link to all my books on Amazon if anyone is interested. The titles are

2 I'm Thankful for...
Have you ever woke up and wondered what your purpose was? Why are you here? So many of us have, especially when things aren’t going your way. I know I have. Sometimes I feel as if I’ve wasted days, sometimes I feel I am right where I want, should, or need to be.
I don’t know why I wake up each morning except that its God’s Will that I should be here and for His purpose not mine. And I thank him for that gift. Sometimes later than sooner because I am wrapped up in my own issues. But someth
Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year because it represents the birth of Christ, Our Lord and Savior. The following is a story of two couples. The first two people we know well, and the other two who we can along to make sure the first couple was never forgotten.
Hope you enjoy ( and get the story)
Mary and Joseph had been traveling all day but now the sun was just setting behind the mountain and it was getting dark. Mary was getting tired for you see she was carryi
With having 2 books out and one in the wings to go out by Christmas perfect for the New Year, its a 52 Week Devotional , I was looking around the Amazon author page and they suggest getting a website but as I look around I couldn't find any that would allow the wonderful followers to be added or subscribe. Does anyone know of a website that will help me promote my books blog and bring my current followers over and is free to use?
Over the last few days I have gone up and down with my writing. After all it is the end of the year and time for most people to wrap up projects or get rid wondering where of them that aren't working. But lately I was wondering where my writing passion went. None of the stories I had created had any interest to me and I just wanted to sit in a corner and eat.and eat and eat. To me writing filled me so food wouldn't have to but what does one do when writing doesn't come? For som
That is a question some are not sure how to answer. I was one of them. Now the question I often struggle with is what have you written that I have read? That question was asked of me about 2 weeks ago. I answered I don't know, I only have two things published and out on the shelf.
I now know that was not the correct thing to say. What I should have said is, I have two Christian stories out there they are "Romantic Married Stories" and "I am thankf
If you’re a writer like me, you have stories and characters moving in and out of your mind every second and all screaming for attention. But what do you do when they are all wanting attention like spoiled children? How can you satisfy them all at once? Throw them a party. Yes you heard me right throw your characters of all your stories a party. Put them in one big room and let them loose. That’s what I did with mine, well still doing. I have at least 30 stories only two are complete with t
