The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

Days 29 & 30 NaNoWriMo

is National Novel Writing Month, 
a month long challenge to write a novel 
throughout the month of November. 
It's official--we're done!
Both my daughter and I have finished our novels, with one day to spare.  Last year, we were down to the eleventh hour.  We kept trying to update our status at but faced a clogged website.  This year, we wanted to avoid that.  I hope to read through my story tonight and tomorrow to assess it.
Of course, the question is: Did the novels go the way we wanted them to go?  No.  We did free-style writing.  That means that we let our characters live out their lives.

We had every intention to follow plans and plots.  In the end, we went with what our minds dictated.  Is that wrong?  I don't think so.  I think our minds just ran on creative lines.

I've grown in my writing.  Again, I've learned some truths about myself.  My characters allowed me to explore relationships and concepts.  I am so grateful that our family and friends have followed us and allowed us our eccentricities as we worked on our craft.

Thanks so much for all the cheering.  We have greatly appreciated it.
