During one of my morning quiet times, I posed this question:
What needs to happen for me to feel accomplished?
I'd made a list of things I desired for this year, and as I read over that list, I asked myself, "what would it take?"
Take care when you throw a question out to the universe. God is listening, my friends.
January 16th is Appreciate Your Dragon Day.
How did this day come about, you might ask? Well, it turns out that one of my favorite authors is behind this fun day!
Back in 2004, Donita K Paul who wrote the Dragonspell series decided there needed to be a National Day set aside for these marvelous beasts.
Crystal, from the White Road Chronicles series, and I both agree. So, in celebration of all things about dragons, I'd like to present some fun things in today's blog that's all about dragons. You can start off by clicking the picture of Alyra and Crystal below for a fun puzzle. Let me know in the comments how you did.
Read on, and at the end, I have a special offer for you...
UPDATE: Winner has been determined and I'll contact that person soon.
Last week, we talked about how things went in the Story World in 2019. Today, we'll be looking ahead!
This week, I'd like to share some of my vision for 2020.
First off, I'm determined to have a plan. I've always been a "come what may" kind of girl, but not anymore. I'm tired to running to keep up. This year is my big step in getting ahead and sticking to a plan.
Wish me luck. 🙄
As 2019 came to a close, I decided to make a State of the Storyworld post to update everyone on how this past year went. I have to say, we started off strong in quarter 1&2, but then came the summer and .... well? Life Happened.
Overall, Jackie Castle rocked the keyboard this year over J. R. Castle. But we'll get to that in a bit. In our defense, between family moving into the castle, bringing two little gremlins with them, and the death of a dear family member around Thanksgiving, I'm surprised I was able to get as much done as I did.
So, here's a recap of this year's accomplishments, in case you missed something... read on-->

Jackie Castle and J.R. Castle
During the Thanksgiving holiday, our family lost a dear member.
We expected it, but yet, we didn't. We'd so hoped he'd hold on through the holidays, but cancer doesn't follow any rules, and doesn't care about one's wishes.
Needless to say, it was a very bittersweet week.
In the midst of heartache, stress, and mourning, God showed up. I'd catch glimpses of Him working good out of the bad situation. Some of the glimpses came from small things that worked out for the best. Other glimpses came from His children and my church family.
This will be my last release for 2019!

Welcome to Snowflake, Colorado—a small town where wishes come true! When six old high school friends receive a letter that their fellow friend, Charity Hart, wrote before she passed away, their lives take an unexpected turn.

It sounds like fun. It reminds them of when they were secret angels in high school together. But the friends soon discover that it isn’t as easy as it seems. With the clock ticking, will they make it happen in time?
Join Mia, Caro, Nate, Sara, Holly, and Taye on their journey to make a wish come true—and find love along the way.
