There's a lot going on today!

First off, today, I turn 16!
This morning, I hit send for the first time, sending my entire book off to an agent for the first time.
I also am guest on Meghan Gorecki's blog! I am talking about creating a writing plan when life gets busy. Check it out on her blog, Every Good Word.
I hope you all enjoyed your summer as much as I did. School is coming on fast, and I am teaching a Creative Writing class to three kids this year as well.


  1. Hi Alyson!
    I just read your guest post on Every Good Word (which I also just found today) and then popped over here and fell in love with your blog! I also am a Christian teen, write novels, and have had to struggle with life/death, suffering, and the goodness of God; my brother was diagnosed with cancer when I was 13, and thankfully God let him live, but it really rocked my world and made me think deeply about what I believe. I don't blog that often anymore, but I'm going to be following your blog and you can send me a comment on my (dormant-ish) blog if you want to chat. :)

    1. I'm glad to hear how God's been working in your life, Ellie : )

     For years, I waited until I turned sixteen so I could sing that song. I didn't care that the two characters were falling in love. I just wanted to sing the lines, "I am sixteen," with accuracy. 
     Well, today I am seventeen. In the past year, I never got the chance to watch Sound of Music and sing along. This kind of made me sad . . . 
     Until I think back to all the times my sister, MK, sang the songs from The Sound of Music with beauty and grace. She fell in love with the movie just like had, and she doesn't care that she's not sixteen. She just loves music and singing. Listening to her was better than fulfilling a childhood dream.
