Just Another Ordinary Day…Maybe

Not much really to update about. Life’s been pretty ordinary, though busy.

I’m still working on finishing this first draft, although I’m really struggling with the end. I’m not sure how Naomi is going to escape her from her kidnappers, or how she’s going to even be found for that matter. I had some ideas, but then I realized that I’ll have to add back one of the POV characters that I originally deleted. So, now I get to go back throughout the book and put in those once deleted chapters again (good thing I still have the original draft that had them!). But that also means that I’m going to need to add them fairly soon for my critique group or they’re going to be seriously confused (as if I haven’t confused them enough with the constant midstream changes).

Oh well. I suppose I’ll just write what I have planned in the summary. Generally things change along the way as I’m actually writing the chapter, so maybe some epiphany will hit.

On the non-writing front, my next two weekends are going to be insane. Saturday is a rather unexpected wedding, which my husband just found out two weeks ago he was in. I only just found out the bride’s name three days ago! 😛 We get to be there bright and early at 8:45 in the morning. I’m so bringing a book to read while Phil is off doing the picture thing and I wait for the wedding to start 😛

After the wedding, I’ll be making a trip to this new bakery I found to pick up donuts for church. Actually, it’s not new, it’s been around since the 1960s, but I only just discovered it. They’re open 24 hours too! Not many bakeries are open all day like that. And they have the best donuts–I love their caramel nut glazed donuts. Anyway, I need to get a dozen donuts to bring to our “Sonrise Service” on Easter. Gotta admit, not looking forward to getting up at 7 a.m. (so NOT a morning person) but it’s once a year and it’s Easter so why not? 🙂

Next weekend is my writer’s conference in Cincinnati (Hamilton actually). Definitely not looking forward to getting up at 6 that morning 😛

Can I say I’m just looking forward to the next few weeks passing by quickly?

One Year Ago

One year ago today, I married my wonderful husband.

It’s hard to believe an entire year passed already…it all went by so quickly.

Of course the wedding day went by in a blur. I just remember before it I was seriously nervous (since I hate being the center of attention) and kept having visions of me tripping down the aisle in my gown because of my inate clumsiness, or being so overcome with emotion that I’d be crying and unable to speak the vows clearly.

None of that happened though 🙂 In fact, I didn’t cry at all–I smiled and was on the verge of laughter the entire time 🙂

We had a small wedding; four bridesmaids and four groomsmen and just under 100 guests (I wanted even less than that, but he’s got a slightly larger family than me).

I remember the nerves I had getting on the plane the following morning to North Carolina. I’d never flown before then so I didn’t know what to expect. I realized I’m not one for flying though–I was getting a bit motion sick on landing. But it was definitely worth it! We went to Emerald Isle, North Carolina and it seemed like we had the entire bed and breakfast to ourselves (we were the only people there at the time). The weather was perfect–about 75 degrees every day with no rain. And I’ve realized that if I ever visit again, it’s going to be in October because there are no tourist crowds, which made it more relaxing.

So much happened in that one year…but it still went by so fast! I wonder what the coming years have in store for us?
