Stress


Philippians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."


Last night, I laid in my bed and stared at the ceiling. I couldn’t sleep. This past weekend we took my big sis to college. She is going to do great. She is studying to be a mechanical engineer which isn’t going to be the easiest thing in the world. She is on the reserve team for their NCAA soccer team. I have no doubt that she will do awesome.
It’s still sad to see her go, though. I cried multiple times. We shared a room, and now it’s just mine. We shared responsibility, and now it’s just mine. I am the big sister now.
Throughout the weekend, I never made the time to sit and talk to God for longer than three minutes. Last night I did. She was going through some stress. I didn’t want her to stress out, she would be fine. I wanted her to know that there would be no problem. I know it sounds stupid, but I ended up stressing out because I didn’t want her to stress.
This verse couldn’t be any clearer. Don’t be anxious. God really does have it all under control.

Writing a Book With Two POVs and a Linear Timeline

I've never been one to write an "easy" story.

Even the project I'm working on now, one I began almost four years ago, was one of complex construction. Mainly, this book was made up of two side by side points of view. Two different characters told two different stories that only intertwined at crucial points throughout the plot. Before I even began, I knew that it would be a difficult story to write without causing mass confusion. 
I'd never written a story anything like this before (and even now, I'm editing to change one of the storylines completely), but I knew one thing:  {My time-line could never back-peddle.}

This would prove an annoying decision, but one that drastically improved my story. Every story is different, but I can outline the logistics of what I did to make this linear timeline possible. 
First, decide your primary main character. With two stories, not just two perspectives on the same story, your story will appear to have two main characters. You…
