This year held amazing changes. Right in the middle of writing my first novel, my desktop computer died. My hero husband promptly went out and got a laptop for me. I still love it! I finished the novel, Heart at War, in March.
A few months later I went to the Write to Publish conference in Chicago, Illinois. God astounded me by ordering my steps and crossing my path with people that could dramatically impact my future! Plus, he blessed me with several new and dear writing friends. I got busy with revisions and Heart at War evolved into a trilogy. Figuring out how to write a novel proposal on my own felt daunting, but eventually, I found some good resources and the proposal launched into the agents care for consideration over Thanksgiving weekend. In the meantime, I am working on revisions to the second book of the trilogy currently titled Heart in Healing.
As a family, we adopted two sister puppies in July. Hope and Angel have added joy (and work) into our daily lives. Angel seems to have become extraordinarily attached to me and follows me around, well, like a puppy dog! Hope is smart and playful. She likes to cuddle at night.
Two thousand nine laid the foundation for my writing career. I am excited to see what God will do in 2010!
