At least we won't need to water our lawn for a few days. So in spite of the mess, "Thank you, Lord, for the rain."
On a happier note, I was blessed to receive my new book this week: Miracles in Tough Times (Guideposts Books: New York). Don't you just love that? God's timing is always perfect. One of my close friends said, "Mary, be sure to read the Introduction to the book again." That's where I say that tough times don't last but tough people do. So how's the old adage go? "Only your best friends can tell you that you have spinach in your teeth." Okay, I get it--it's time to practice what I preach. Thanks, Barbara!
Anyway, here's a photo of the new book. And if you're celebrating these tough times, too, you might enjoy getting a copy to read. It's a collection of true stories of how God intervenes in our lives during our most difficult days. You can order it through the Product Store at http://www.CreativeEnterprisesLtd.com.
So what are you writing? I'd love to hear about it.
Meanwhile, here's another installment in our Writing Myths series. I hope it's helpful.
C. S. Lewis once said of his writing, "I try to leave out the parts that people don’t read." And that's great advice. Don’t beef up your manuscript with strings of adjectives. Keep it moving! And your readers will keep moving with you. Blessings, Mary
