Ahhh…fall…It is truly a glorious time. The weather is starting to cool off, I can pull out my most favoritist (yes a word…*shifty eyes*) clothing articles, and can pile the covers on our bed. LOVE IT.
Things have been kind of stressful for the last week. It’s been hard to write. I was in a little bit of a funk for a while. However, things are turning up and I have been reminded so many times this week of how God is good and provides for us. I’ve been reading through my current manuscript and I’ve been enjoying it so much! I got to a point about two weeks ago, where I thought, “This sucks. I don’t know how to fix this!!!” Reading through the manuscript has renewed my creativity for this current story and increased my drive to continue on to the finish.
Enough introspection. You came here for Wednesday Wanderment!
