The Writing Life

An Irresistibly Sweet Blog


I was honored to learn this blog was nominated for The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award by author Tracy Ruckman. A great, big thanks to you, Tracy!

There are certain rules that come with this nomination. First, I must display the badge and thank the person who nominated me. (See above.) Second, I need to nominate ten other blogs and let them know. And third, I’m to share seven random things about myself or my blog. (See below.)

Ten blogs I find to be sweet:

Anita Mae Draper’s Draper’s Acres – Writing updates,  personal with lots of photos

Dora Hiers’ Heart Racing, God Gracing blog – Reviews, devotions, and fun “Thanks Givings” posts

Edwina Cowgill’s Musings of Edwina – Reviews and devotions

Heidi Chiavaroli’s New England Inspiration – Faith, writing and real life

Jillian Kent – Writing and real life

Keiki Hendrix – I’ve often taken advantage of her Vessel Project website

Nicole Miller’s To the Heart of History – Horses and history – Who could want more?

Phyllis Keel’s The Gifted Writer – Focuses on God’s work in our lives

Rachel Wilder’s Romance with Old World Charm – 19th Century Fashion

Reflections in Hindsight – Encouraging posts for writers


Seven random things about me or my blog?

I truly enjoy promoting the works of other Christian authors on this blog and letting readers know about the awesome novels being written by them.

After all these months, I’m still trying to get used to a half-empty nest. (The child does have college breaks.)

I’m probably one of the last people on this earth to sign up for Facebook. (Waving hello to my friends!)

My favorite part of gardening is putting a plant in the ground. I’ve been known to move the same plant over and over again.

One day, several years ago, I spotted a poster in a kid’s movie. It was created by Argus using one of the quotes I sold them. (Don’t ask which movie. I was too flummoxed to write it down and have regretted that ever since. In case the movie is ever shown again, the poster is hanging on a schoolroom door. It has black and white stripes like a referee’s uniform and says “Life has rules. Play fair.” Just in case…)

After twenty-one years of publishing small pieces, God gave me the go-ahead to write novels. We never know what He has in store for us.

The beginning of January marked two years of writing this blog. For a total non-techie…wow! 


Thanks for the opportunity to do this, Tracy!
