As Jill stood waiting at the luggage pick-up with her two children, she couldn’t help but be aware two men were watching them. She didn’t know if the men had been on the flight, she only knew she felt uneasy. She was beginning to think this new journey they were embarking on was a mistake and her father was right about traveling so far from home alone. It was the most independent decision she had made since her husband disappeared one year earlier. She had faith he would be back, everything would make sense, and they could put this mystery behind them. No one else shared that belief.

Here is your scene:
Dean hadn’t entered the old cave since he was a child and now standing at the entrance he had apprehensions remembering what had happened in those damp cavernous rooms. He flipped the flashlight on and began his trek. If Dean was right, his life would be very different when he emerged.
Are you better than you were yesterday? That is the only gauge you should be using to compare yourself!
For sometime now I have been tossing around creating a private group on Facebook for a few author friends. Well, I did it this morning! Yes, I belong to some very large groups that are great but I find the bigger the group, the bigger my inhibitions become about sharing my stuff. I also get asked many questions on a weekly basis about starting a blog or getting published. There is a wealth of knowledge out there on the net and learning this stuff doesn’t just happen over night. It takes time. Lots of time and the self-publishing industry is changing the face of publishing like we have never seen before and putting the power back in the author’s court. We have so much more control now and it is an exciting time to be a writer!
With that being said, there are a lot of things that authors can lack in– a community! This is important!! As the saying goes, “Writing is a solitary art, but that doesn’t mean you have to be lonely.”
If you are a new writer, established, or you have fiddled around with writing a story and never finished, this group may be for you.
I created a group. It is a private group. It WILL be a helpful group. It WILL be a respectful group.
If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of then answer these three questions:
#1 Are you an aspiring writer of Fiction, Fantasy, or Sci-FY?
#2 Do you need a community to bounce ideas off of?
#3 Are you a Christian? (Yes, I went there! 🙂 )
Tell me about yourself! If you leave a comment with your email I will send you an invite to this group. Now to avoid the spammer bots that slink around the web when you type your email don’t place the .com or space out each letter and I will figure it out. I will then comment that I sent you an invite so you can look for the invitation!
I haven’t been as active on here as I would like to be. My time has been focused on a new/old project that will be published soon. I have been working on this project since 2013 and now that I am expecting the book cover any day I feel like I can breath a sigh of relief! SO, when I saw this picture, it reminded me that carefully crafted words cannot be rushed. They take time and they need to be *done well*.
Hope you are having a great Wednesday!!
