the blog virgin

I love to write. It’s one of my life’s greatest passions. I have been writing for as long as I can remember. But, for whatever reason, I have avoided blogging like the plague. It’s probably my perfectionistic nature. My writing tends to be quite personal, and most of it I don’t want anyone to see. The words I do share are ones that have been proofread and edited. And edited again. A blog is writing off the top of my head and sharing it with the world seconds later. Scary.

My darling husband blogs. Why, he wants to know, would someone like me not jump at the chance to blog? Well, I’ve decided to jump. He just designed a fabulous web site for me (will be ready within the week), and I know that my entrance into BlogWorld will make him smile. So, here I am! This isn’t so bad.

My first real published book comes out in 2 months. I’m really excited. It’s been my dream for a long time, and as it turns out, it was part of God’s plan for my life as well. The book is called “From Blushing Bride to Wedded Wife” and hopefully, it’ll be pretty cool. Book #2 has been approved for publication by Harvest House Publishers http://www.harvesthousepublishers.com as well. Yeehaw!

That’s all for now. Don’t want to use up all my words on my very first entry.

p.s. I’m 2 cm dilated, 80% effaced, and baby’s head is “way down.”
p.p.s. Don’t tell my husband, but I really, really want to try to have this little one au naturel (i.e. no epidural). I’ll let you know how that goes!
p.p.p.s. Are postscripts just for letters and such? I’m not well-versed in blog protocol.

    Marla- I’m so excited for you guys!  Joel and I are enjoying our job at a camp here in New York, but we think of you and everyone we know from Scioto often!  It’s great to hear that you’re doing well, and it’s so exciting to see your book being published! 🙂  Have a great day!
