Girls Write Out
Sunday, November 04, 2007

I started two books at once. This has never happened before. One is
women's fiction, one is a chick lit. But here's what's different. I
started the chick lit because someone just annoyed the daylights out
of me with her chipper personality. I mean, how wrong is that? But
she was so spritely and happy, I wanted to go home and "school" her,
as my kids would say. So I did. In a book. And she'll never be the
wiser. But happy people shouldn't annoy you. Right? Today our sermon
was on authenticity, and that was it. I had my theme. When you're
too chipper, when in fact, you're living in ignorance, that is not
happy, that is ignorance. And her ignorance annoyed me. I wanted to
say out loud, "Girlfriend, you have NO clue what you're talking
about." But that would be rude. So I kept my mouth shut, even though
everyone in the room was thinking exactly the same thing. But I have
somewhere to go with my frustration. I can write a book!

The picture above is me, my daughter and my muse for Ashley -- though
she's not nearly as spoiled, she is JUST as much fun. And she was always married, so that part as with a lot of the rest was complete fiction. I'm Snow White
just in case you're confused.

Pray for Diann today!! Pray she will be at peace and the surgery will
ALL be over before she realizes it. That is the GOOD kind of
ignorance. : )

Oh, my goodness! Your daughter has grown since we went wave boarding!
Looks like you three had a good time. I may try your method for getting out frustration though 2 books at the same time sounds a tad daunting for my linear way of thinking.
Praying for Diann now.
Abundant blessings!

I just thought it was fun to get to show Ashley's muse. Di is in surgery right now, so keep praying. I will be so happy and relieved when she's out.

LOL Kris. We think too much alike...I think that one of the reasons God wants me to be a writer is so that I will vent my frustration that way rather than telling someone off to their face.

You made a PERFECT Snow White! Love that you show your Ashley muse, too!

Praying for Diann's quick recovery.
