My New Book Marches On

I was stuck at the bank all morning, arranging Aunt Joan’s finances and providing for her continued care. After what seems like an eternity of frustrated wanderings in a bureaucratic labyrinth, that business seems to be just about done.

It’s been a week since the Lord gave me, out of the blue, a big chunk of the plot of my new book, The Temptation (that would be No. 11 in my Bell Mountain series), and I have steamed ahead to write five chapters of it. Considering all the interruptions and distractions, not bad!

What kind of distractions? Well, yesterday the cops showed up to lead away some guy next door, after cuffing his hands behind his back. He was shirtless. I don’t know who he was or what he might have done, but it was pretty distracting.

Ah! But Lord Chutt found himself in a serious spot of trouble yesterday, and against my expectations, Ysbott the Snake has, at least for the time being, bailed him out of it. I can hardly wait to see what happens next.

But first I’ve got to write it.

    Praise God that your aunt’s paperwork is about finished, AND that you’re well on your way into your new book. I’m excited about that!

    What an unnerving experience you had next door. That’s a bit too close for my comfort level.

    And as far as Lord Chutt and Ysbott are concerned – what a twosome! My imagination is already working as to which one will think he’s outsmarted the other. I’m looking for an epic double-cross 🙂

    That is hilariously funny. 🙂

    Congrats on the progress so far.
