Re: Wk 2 Topic: ALL TALK, NO ACTION Challenge

Hi - Just sent in my entry. I am embarrassed and almost didn't hit the submit button. It is far below what I want it to be. I feel it should go in the 'Beginner' category! At least I completed the entry, and I enjoyed working on it.

Thanks for praying

Hi - Mike and I seem to have survived the situation standing on our feet! God is good. There are still things to work out, but we appreciate your prayers. God is so faithful, and we start this new year with a grateful heart. Thanks, we love you all. - Trudy for us both

Re: Almost time to start up again!

Hi Joanne - No wonder you're excited. Thank you for stepping in for Deb. We will miss her greatly in this role. But I agree with Shann, you'll do a great job. I'm working on my entry now.

Re: Travel articles wanted

Hi Nicki, I just talked with my husband, Mike, and he is happy to have you use his article "On the Tour Bus" for your new website. I tried to give you the link below. Seems sometimes I have a harder time than others. But you can find it under D Michael Newell in his Challenge pieces. http://www.fait...

Re: Writing Biblical Fiction

Hi Jan - This is not my day. I really did send a note early, and that glitched. I do want you know just how much your lessons are appreciated. Now I am embarrassed as I'm not sure this is link for my article The Good Samaritan 2014. At this time is should be the very first article there - as I just ...

Re: Travel articles wanted

Hi Nicki -

I am interested. Mike and I are headed to S. CA. this coming week. So, when we get back I'll get in touch.

We have both been overseas as missionaries. Some of the stories are quite unique and interesting.

Hope you have success in getting the website up and running.

More later - Trudy

Wow - I am excited to see this group coming together. Ashley, I had to chuckle at you being nervous about joining the group.

Re: General writing Accountability group desired to start

I'm a little nervous about this, but if it's not too late count me in. I sure need this kind of accountability.

Thanks - Trudy

I am finally back to 'normal' (whatever that is) physically. Looking forward to getting back into the Challenge and on the boards. I wan...

Re: Be a Better Writer--TELL, DON'T SHOW? WHAT?

No Jan - but her book handles things like POV, adverbs, adjectives, Dialog tags, Back story, sentence variety, as well as how to"show."

There are times it's best to tell - but I have a tendency to tell rather than show. I guess it's about balance. Trudy

Re: Be a Better Writer--TELL, DON'T SHOW? WHAT?

Hi - This time I have something to contribute. Shann recommended a great book to me by Amy Michelle Wiley - 'Bring Your Writing to Life'.I'd recommend it too.

Amy is great at explaining how to show/not tell. It is helpful. My problem is that it's far easier said than done!
