My Dear Reader,
Thank you for your patience. Simply put. Writing with twin infants is NOT easy. But things are changing. My husband recently got a new job and we moved from Iowa to Tennessee! We wanted to be closer to family, and felt like God was telling us to go. This being said. I am getting more help with the kiddos, and will be depending on them this November.
NaNoWriMo is fast approaching, and I am preparing. Before November 1st, there will be posted for you a piece entitled With Father Through Fire. It is an allegorical story about a Father and daughter on a camping trip. For NaNo itself I have been preparing to revamp Prince of Slaves as I promised long ago. I’m working out a new plot structure, and am really going in depth with pre-writing and planning. And you will be getting some of that posted as teasers as I go. I want to know these characters in side and out and have every scene planned so that I can post a chapter regularly (every week or every other) and hold myself to that standard. November then will be spent actually writing Prince of Slaves (which will probably have a title change). So when December rolls around, the chapters will be ready to post, and I will simply need to go back and do some tweaking and editing.
To be honest, as most writers I have a lot of self doubt and fear when it comes to writing again. Even as I’m writing this, I’m not feeling very inspired or “in the zone”. I feel like I’m just throwing random words on a page, ranting and rambling to my friends hoping they make some sort of sense out of all of this. But, as it is written love conquers fear, right? And, well, I have a heart for you, my reader. I might not know who you are across the screen reading this, but I desire to let you know: YOU ARE IMPORTANT. YOU ARE LOVED BY THE CREATOR. YOU ARE PUT ON THIS EARTH WITH A PURPOSE. My prayer is that you grow closer to the King of kings with every word you read.
In God’s love,
Amber Skye Mileusnich
