New story ideas are coming in spades


I have never understood that expression. Where does it come from? I understand the implied meaning, I can use it appropriately (well at least I think so...maybe not though...). But I don't get it. Is it a card game reference? Could someone explain this to me?

Well....I got distracted very early on this post.

Anyway. New story ideas. Overwhelming.

Dusty is still buried deep in the editing process. (Ugh. Editing.) I'm putting a tentative (emphasis on tentative) publish date at December 20th. Don't hold me to that. Courageous Heart is about half way done and I'm still working through it.

But now I'm also working on something else as well (because I guess I can't be satisfied unless I'm multitasking).

My new story is nameless as of yet (I only started it yesterday, after all). The plot is going to follow a girl who struggles with very deep seeded issues that I struggle with myself. Kaelyn (the main character) is going to tell the story of my life through fiction. From what I've written so far, I absolutely love this story. I'm learning to grow and change at the same time that Kaelyn is and it's a beautiful process. It's bringing healing to a part of my life I thought would stay darkened forever. But God has His own plans, and I'm loving it!

Don't worry, I'll tell you all about the plot and how it is intertwined with my life, I promise. Just not today. It's the darkest portion of my life and the deepest rooted sin and it's difficult for me to talk about it. As God is healing me, however, it is becoming increasingly easier to open up and share my story. So yes, I will share it with you. But you're going to have to wait.

At any rate, Kaelyn's story has now become my personal favorite (if authors are allowed to have favorites of their own creations). I'm super excited to see where this story goes. And I hope my readers will enjoy it too. :)
