Providence

I'm learning more and more about it lately as it works in my life.

But first, an update. I finished NaNo with flying colours, coming out just a little above 50,000 words. Yay me! But I can't boast too much, even though this was my first time through, because the writing was easy, and I know others fought their stories more than I fought mine. But I'm pleased with myself, and I hope to get another crazy month's worth of frantic typing in come February with a few other friends so I can push even farther along in my novel.

In the publishing world, my sister and I just had a TV interview on Your Carolina, a local television station based out of the Michelin building in downtown Greenville. They were some really lovely people, and I had a good time, even though I had the serious jitters being on television for the first time. You can see the video up on their webside if you care to watch it. (Note: Jenny's voice was surgically removed and replaced with the voice of Minnie Mouse.)

And this evening, regardless of how tired I am after the interview, I've got a book signing at the Barnes and Noble in the Shops at Greenridge on Woodruff in my area. (Not to be confused with the town of Woodruff.) So if you happen to live in the area, stop on by! I'll be the gal in a suit of black armour with silver apple-leaf patterns. That's from 7:00-9:00.

Saturday evening and Monday evening (18th and 20th) will be busy with a book launch and another book signing respectively, one at the South Main Spill the Beans (free coffee if you buy a book!) and the Laurens Road Books-A-Million. (5:00-6:00, and 6:00-8:00).

So yes, I'm a busy girl. I still have Christmas shopping to do, and then wrapping all the presents I hope to buy. But if there is one thing I am learning, it is that, so long as you are not totally foolish with yourself and your time (and sometimes even then) God's providence is mightily good. My people are hacking time out of their busy schedules to stand by my sister and me, and even my publisher and his wife are dancing out of their routines to come join us. God has been very good to me, no matter how weary I feel.

And now this little unicorn needs to go crawl into her armour and get ready for the evening. Merry Christmas!
