Refreshing Hearts One Sentence At A Time
"Bare branches in winter are a form of writing.
The unclothed body is autobiography.
Every lake is a vowel, every island a noun."

Just a little heads-up for anyone interested in getting some tips on writing or communicating more effectively with yourself and others -- I have been invited by the Early Chamber of Commerce to speak at the August luncheon at Mi Familia. I've been working on my "speech" (if you want to call it that. It's really a list of tips and ideas) this week and am growing more excited every day! Tonight I am going to watch Star Wars to refresh in my mind the classic hero plotline. I'll have to suffer through it with some popcorn and maybe some decaf coffee! Wink!
I might post my information from the luncheon on here afterwards, for anyone who cannot attend. I would love to see you there, though, and you can enjoy a delicious lunch with that awesome queso and sour cream sauce while I give some tips, examples, and reminders about finding joy in our plotlines and honing our communication techniques.
And yes, you do exist in a plot, and on the current page you may be in the Big Gloom, experiencing a catalyst moment, or twisting in a turning point. What will you do? How will it effect your story? And will you be the hero or the antagonist? And what does all of this have to do with a thesis sentence?!
But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. (1 Corinthians 1:9)
