Yup! It's a pretty fantastic book.
I haven't read Divergent, though I might think about it sometime! My favorite book is "Stepping Heavenward" by E. Prentiss.
Find Jesus! You can read about Him in the Bible. The book of John is a good place to start! Your life won't be perfect, you'll still have trials and tribulations. But through those, you'll have peace, hope, joy, a loving Father, and eternal life!
Pemberly Digital is the only one I really watch. Blimey Cow sometimes, too.
My book is called *Reaching Home.* I teach creative writing, and I teach it because I enjoy it and I need a job. :) Uhm, sure, yeah, I've had that happen before. Usually I talk to God and read the Word and I feel a whole lot better. Well crafted writing inspires me. And when I lose someone I love, it helps me to write about it.
I honestly don't follow actors or actresses. I couldn't say.
It's a challenge to write 50,000 words in the month of November. And who introduced me? Well...you wouldn't want me to give away the name of my classy undercover skate-fairy agent, now would you?
"Be Thou My Vision," if I had to pick a favorite.
Honestly, I really don't know.
Playing games, playing softball, reading, and watching movies.
I'm not really a holiday kinda person.
Sleep, tea, food, medicine, college work, blogging, paper grading, book writing, phone calls, answering emails.
Writing, journal, calligraphy, reading, exploring, blogging, music, singing, spending time with kids.
Yes. Probably too much.
Wow. Well, first of all - if you are suffering from another disease, you should hit me up so I can encourage you personally. :) Hm. 1) find Jesus. 2) Stay in the Word constantly -- whether you're reading it or listening to pastors preaching the Word. Have it with you all the time, and have it in your head, ready to fight the enemy's lies. 3) Choose joy. In your walk and in your talk. Joy is a journey - don't expect it to be there immediately and without work. Work at it. 4) Find godly people in a similar situation to encourage you. Emphasis on *godly*. You need people who will pound scripture in your head. 5) Don't hide it. Use it. I don't mean by blurting it to the world. I mean by platforming it. God's given you a tool, right? Don't watch as it goes by. Answer someone when they ask a question. Use it to encourage others, to build people up, and use it to further the gospel.
That's hard to answer. It really depends on what I'm writing. If it's an article or short story, coming up with material is a lot simpler. Usually I just wait for the Lord to speak, and then format and write it. If it's a book....I get ideas for books all the time, in the every day things I do. But just because it's an idea...doesn't mean I'm going to actually write it. The qualifications for an idea I use would have to be 1) something I could write. Sci-fi, for example, is not my forte. 2) It has to be something I'm overly excited about. 3) It has to be something God is speaking and 4) There has to be a message to the idea that I want to get out through the form of a story. If a book fits all those qualifications, I spend a couple of months outlining, changing, plotting, formatting, and creating the story around the idea. Then I write it. After that, 4-6 months are devoted to editing.
No, I've never been outside the US.
Yes! Very much.
