What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Monday, February 12, 2007

What a week!

I'm working on the next post in the series here, but it's taking a little longer than I wanted and I know some of you are certain that I'm never going to post another thing here. Ha. I am really enjoying this writing about writing theme and intend to keep going for as long as I can, it's just been a rough week. Last Sunday I lost my dog, Captain, who had been my faithful little pup and companion for 16 years, and then I had a scare with my heath, a rather bad one, but thankfully by and through Christ, my Great Physician as well as the doctors things seem to be getting under control once more. Anyway, I wanted to post this and tell all of you who have been praying for me that I can definitely feel the love and support, there are times I know the only way I made it through is because of your prayers, the love of Christ, and the support of my family. How's that for drama? :-D I think I'll just watch comedies this week and read funny books. Alright, well watch for that post later, I've got roughly an hour before work and I want to get some writing in before I leave.
