Hey there, you crazy dA kids!
Since I haven't had a chance to speak with everyone in so long, I figured I'd write a quick post to let you all know how things are going!
Jenn and I are coming up on our four month anniversary on December 3rd-- we've already been married a quarter of a year, can you believe it!? Since last we spoke, I've taken up an extra position at the church as Administrative Assistant on top of my duties as Children's Ministry Director. It can be stressful at times, but I enjoy and it's great to be able to invest myself in the lives of others and help serve our community.
As an added answer to prayer, Jenn also finally just got a job working as cafeteria support at a local charter school for kids with emotional problems. She's worked in the food services industry for longer than I've known her and she says this is the best place she's ever worked! Plus, we get to bring home food everyone so often, and it's actually pretty tasty!
On the book front, after doing a complete read-through for Jenn, I somewhat rewrote the first chapter of the book and broke it into three. Now Carr has more of a character in those chapters and we see more of the respect with comes with his position, as opposed to just being some troublesome guy just running around doing things and completing tasks. Now Book One is in Jenn's capable hands for editing, and, once that's done, I'm hoping to begin to pitch it to agents. I haven't ruled out self-publishing, either, but I want to try the traditional method for publishing first. In the meantime, however, I'm making great headway into Book 2, and by 'great headway,' I mean I've complete the first scene in seven pages. haha
Anyway, those are the big updates that I can think of for now, though if you have any questions, feel free to shoot them my way! I'm quite excited for our first Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up and am looking forward to all that the holidays will bring! Likewise, I do miss talking to everyone around these parts and hope you're all doing well!
Ciao for now!
