I know...I know...Novel Update is late

I know. I didn't post an update on my novel last week. I am sorry and will try not to do it again. This is a little early for this weeks update, but I will combine the two and make this an update for this week and last week.

I have decided not to enter any more in the computer until I get a lot more done. This will allow me to concentrate more on the writing and not the revising, which I do when I type into the computer. I have completed chapter four and have gotten a good start on chapter 5. I'm not as far as I would like to be, but I am still working on it and will continue to work on it.

For those of you who remind me each week that I forgot to update, THANK YOU! You are keeping me on my toes and holding me accountable.

Smoking on private property

Let me start by saying that I am not a smoker and I prefer to visit establishments that are smoke free. That being said, Oklahoma is talking about banning smoking in eating establishments. Is that a bad thing? Well, for health reasons, I would say no, it isn't a bad thing, but if you think about the implications, it is a bad thing. Smoking is a legal activity. The eating establishments in question are private property. The government is telling the owners of these establishments that they (the owners) can not allow a legal activity on their property. It is eroding our rights as citizens. If you want to say that I can not allow smoking on my property, you need to tell me that smoking is illegal. Next thing you know, they will decide that deep fried foods are not healthy (I know, they aren't) and say that deep fried foods can not be served, or other such nonsense.

Let the owners/operators decide if smoking is allowed in their establishments. If you don't smoke, don't go to a smoking establishment if it bothers you.

Thursday Update

Well, this week, I have been lazy. I wrote a little and did some reading when I usually do my writing. I have been reading the first book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series: The Lightning Thief. I have a few more chapters of that to read, but will work on my writing as well. I do need to get everything that has been written, entered into the computer.

The Armor update

Again, I didn't update on Thursday, for which I am sorry. As of yesterday, I have completed 3 chapters and part of chapter 4. Haven't gotten it all in the computer, but it is written.

I have been asked what the book is about. I don't want to give away too much, but I will give a brief synopsis. The Armor is a story of demons and angels and spiritual warfare. The main character is a young lady named Kayla who can see the spiritual realm and interact with it. I know how it starts and how it ends, but am getting excited to find out how it gets there.

I hope you can read it when I am done with it. The hardest part of the process will be getting it published.
