The stories I tell you here generally fall under four categories:
- The God Chapters: This one is still new to me, but also old at the same time; I explain that as best I can here. And this one is so exciting to me because it’s the one that gives me the most moments where the stars whirl and align and I understand the universe in a new way…and then another day they whirl and align again and I understand the universe in a new way again. Seriously, God is my favorite because not only does He always, always exceed my imagination, but I will never get to the end of Him. Ever. There will always be new heights and depths to discover and explore, and it’s never going to be a disappointment. But this one is also more difficult to write about simply because it’s so hard to put into words; you should see how often I stopped and waved my hands at the screen just while I was composing this paragraph. God, y’all. He can make a writer wordless. paragraph. God, y’all. He can make a writer wordless.
- The Writing Chapters: I learned to love stories early in life. I didn’t have much chance, maybe; my parents are both readers. But I’ve always been grateful for that. I have been making up stories in my head for as long as I can remember, though I didn’t start writing them down until I was ten. And I’ve never really stopped. I write YA Christian Fantasy most of the time, sometimes I write poetry, and occasionally I write several pages of other things. I plan to publish a book eventually, and in the meantime I look forward to the day when I might find a writer-friend who loves words as I do.
- The People Chapters: There are people in my life. Aren’t you surprised? Being an introvert, I am not necessarily good at human relations but I still find them fascinating. I like to say that I don’t like people, but I am passionately fond of persons. In these chapters I tell you stories about the different people in my life, ranging from the man I wake up with every day to the random stranger who I only met that one time but I will not forget them quickly.
- The Adventure Chapters: Every so often, we’ll do something new and unexpectable and often slightly scary to me. And after it’s over, I’ll love to remember it and I will share it with you in these chapters.
Of course, there’s more to my life, things that don’t fall inside these categories. But these are the things on which my days turn, and these are the things which I will most often write about.
So come join me, read my story, if these things interest you. Ask me questions, if they make you curious. Tell me so, if they give you a connection to me. Or walk out the door without a word, but keep your eyes open. You have a story, if you just look for it.
