Make up Your Own Clever Title for This One

Very first thing Groovy must say is that I edited that last scene I posted. I had a character saying "Oh my Gawd!" While that might be "realistic", it is not consistant with my own desire to always honor God's name. I have changed it to "Oh my word!"

So there!

The novel is going slowly because we have so much awesome familiness going on here; I'm only up to 12,510 words (should be at 21,671 by tonight - won't happen!) However, it IS going on. I find that very encouraging! I may not make the 50,000 words by November 30, but I have a story that I like with some direction to keep on keeping on. I've also netted (thus far) 2 original songs and the beginnings of a third one. Whoo-hoo!

Not much time to write today: 4-H, library run, kids' choir practice, and then....AND THEN....J-Man and Funsocksgirl will be here!!!

That's right, folks. I'll have all 4 children, my son-in-law and my daughter-in-law and all three grandchildren popping in and outa here for the next week.

So don't expect much posting! :D At least not until I've stolen all the pics that FSG will take with her more reliable camera.

OK...now I'm off to finish chapter 5 before 4-H. Toodles!

Well, I hadn't read the piece, but I"m sure glad you changed the phrase!

Sounds like great and wonderful things happening in your neck of the woods.

DC got a kick out of Mulletman's dream!

Thanks for being true to your conscience and removing the word.

I wish more authors had such a conscience.

Congrats on getting ANY writing down in the middle of so much awesome familiness.

You deserve a prize for that alone -- and I think your prize should be continuing awesome familiness.

"Oh my word!"???

I'm sorry, Groovy, but I think realism should be the decider here... I don't see anything wrong with your character saying... "Oh my gourd"

Tehe... that's what you get for encouraging me to write posts and then not bothering to come over and read them.


Oh look... Word Verification: CARMA (that's close enough for me)

I hope you're busyness has been so much fun!
