Well it is well past my bedtime. However, I've been playing with my blog. I'm trying to learn more about ways to enhance it. I should learn how to post first and foremost. This is the third time I've written this post and tried to save it to the blog. They say the third time is a charm - we will see.
I am learning more and more though. Check out my butterfly picture and bible verse I've added.
Also, check out the little fishes at the bottom of the page. I've also added a couple of links to websites that I like. Well I had better sign off and get myself into bed. Until next time.

Today has been an exciting day. We have begun the course on characters and their goals taught by Ane Mulligan. I feel privileged to have her as a teacher. I am also very excited to be part of the ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) association. In just a few short days I feel like I am a member of a writing community. It feels good. I have longed to have someone else to talk to about writing and this is the perfect forum. Not only can you ask other authors questions there are courses to keep/hone your writing skills. I am anxious to get back to writing about my characters Trixie and Dee Dee. It has been too long that I've left them by all alone. I hope that maybe someday I will be able to have a blog/website that will be an encouragement and learning tool for fledgling writers like myself. Alas, for now it is all I can do to keep up with the classes I am taking.
Until next time!

Today is the first day of the rest of my life. It is also the first day of the rest of my journey. I'm excited about getting started on that journey. I've made some steps that I think will be very helpful to me. I've joined the American Christian Fiction Writers. They offer support to writers in many different ways. I will be beginning a week long on-line class on charaters this week. It is being taught by Ane Mulligan. I talked with Ane over the phone the other day and I know she is going to be a real support for me. She was so helpful in to me in setting up my account with ACFW so I could get the most benefit out of it. She does not live to far from me so I am looking forward to meeting with her. Well, this is a good start and I hope to be back and write more about what is going on in my journey. Maybe you will want to come, too.
