Up and Coming!

I got that bug again.


I have to write. Something. Anything. And I want to share with my friends!

So, starting in August, it is my goal to post Monday thru Friday on my blog. I’ve designed a layout of sorts that will hopefully keep me on track. This way I’ll be able to get my blogs done quickly and still have fun with them. After all, what’s the point if I’m not having fun, right? Or, more importantly, if YOU’re not having fun?

Why August? Why not now?

Two reasons. The major one being that I want to give myself a little more time to “adjust” to having three children, one of them being a newborn. The other being that I have a lot going on this month.

My parents and sisters will be here this weekend—which is great because hubby will be leaving on another work trip next Monday. My family is staying for a week and then they are going to visit some other relatives and taking my girls with them! So the following week, being with only the baby, I hope to have a writing intensive week in which I will finish Dividing Spirits. Yep—that’s the goal. The last week in July, my girls will be back, so I’ll be getting used to taking care of all three kids all by myself. I’m grateful that I get to kind of “ease” into it.

Back to the blog—

I have some fun new things planned, posts which include Friend of the Week, Websites/Blogs to see, Product Reviews…and some more of the old favorites: Let’s Share!, Verse of the Week, and lots on the life and craft of writing.

For the rest of July, I still plan to update as much as I can. But more likely they will be life/family related…although, there may be lots of complaining and moaning and cheering during the writing intensive week.

I considered going offline for writing intensive week, but I think the only way I’ll stay sane is to continue to connect with my online friends. I’ll just restrict my time to early in the morning and late at night with maybe a brief venture in the middle of the afternoon. We’ll see…

So, I hope you’ll continue on this journey with me. What’s new in your life? What changes are in your future?


  1. Good to hear of your goals, Ralene! Congrats on the addition to your family! Sounds like you've got a plan! Looking forward to your new format. God bless! :)

  2. Ralene, I can't even imagine all that you're going to accomplish when the kids are older! You do so much now! Have a great weekend!

  3. Wow! You are definitely a go-getter, girl! I remember those days of having small children and newborns--lack of sleep does not contribute to my creativity, I have to say.
    Congratulations on sticking with your writing and keeping your priorities straight. You and your family are in my prayers.
