We're all fine here, um... how are you?

This has been an "interesting" week to say the least. With my beloved being home again (YEA!), and the kids in the middle of standardized test week, me trying to pull together some minor projects around the house, working on some short stories, and all of the other routine things that happen around my little "dojo"... my mind has really not been on blogging much this week.

Oh! One thing I would like to comment on for all you writers out there. I have been having trouble keeping track of my story ideas for this really long short story I want to write. I must have three different notebooks I have scribble notes in, not to mention some Word documents, so I have been searching on-line "how to outline stories". There are a ton of useful websites, but I am suffering through information overload. :-) There is a program out there that has a really flashy front. If the program is half as useful as the website is designed, then I will be forking over the license fee when the trial period is up. The program is called "Liquid Story Binder XE". I am going to give it a try over the weekend and see how much I like it.

If anyone has good advice on how to write a story, how to submit stories, or just plain story writing experiences, I'd love to hear about them.
Verse for today:
Proverb 16 : 1-6, ESV
The plans of the heart belong to man,
but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes,
but the Lord weighs the spirit.
Commit your work to the Lord,
and your plans will be established.
The Lord has made everything for its purpose,
even the wicked for the day of trouble.
Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord;
be assured, he will not go unpunished.
By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,
and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil.

Ummm - didn't take the time to look at the webpage but how much is the fee? Let me know if you like it or not...

Look up An Wallace on FB whom is under my friends - she has just recently had a book published!

I am sure she would be willing to give you a couple of tips...

Uh ... did you have a slight weapons malfunction or something? I assume everything's perfectly all right now.
