Alrighty, folks. 2017 is here to stay. Well, for a while, at least. ;)
Let's skip the introduction and get right into this post. ('Cause who reads the introductions? I mean, really. xD)
Basically, I'm here to let you know of a few changes. *looks around* I know, changes. They're not my favorite things, either. BUT. I think these are good. ;)
First off, I'm sure you all noticed the blog name change. Whimsical Writings worked great for these first two years as I established my writing a bit, and got to meet so many wonderful bloggers. But this year, one of my goals is to get more serious with my writing, and soo... I thought a name change was in order. Thus, Whimsical Writings for His Glory. I chose this name, because I feel it best represents what I want my writing to be about. Yes, I do still want my writing to have a whimsical, old-fashioned feel. But above all, I want it to be about Christ. Our Savior. I pray everything I write may be used by God for His glory. Because He gave me the gift of writing, and my ultimate goal is to point others toward Him.
Okay, secondly. Umm, yeah. So. I made a website. This ties in with the whole "taking it more seriously" thing. This is a huge thing for me, because I've been putting it off for forever. To be honest, the thought of taking being an author to the next level scared me. And it still does. Part of me still wants to be the little girl who can write, but doesn't really have to take responsibility with any of it. But time changes things. I'm not writing just for fun anymore. I'm old enough to be an adult. (Okay, technically I am an adult...) And I know God is telling me it's time to take the next step and not stay behind the safety of what is comfortable and familiar. New seasons in life come along, and I'm excited about this season. Though still a bit uncertain.
Anyway, here's the website link. I know it's not perfect yet, and I'm still working on it, but I'd love to hear your thoughts. :) http://writingforhisglory.weebly.com/
And thirdly . . .for all those of you who have been politely trying to figure out when A Question of Honor releases . . . I have a release date! *drumroll* You can check the "Published Works" page.
Or you can just stay here and I'll tell you. ;) Lord willing, it'll release on March 3rd. Exactly two months from yesterday. So I'm excited about that, and I hope y'all are too! To all my beta-readers . . . I know, I've made you wait a while.;) Stay tuned for the cover reveal and other exciting stuff as we get a bit closer!
Well, I think that's all I have to share with you today! Thank you all so much for reading, and I hope you're having a wonderful first week of 2017! Are you making any changes this year?
