What a breathtaking start to Holy Week.

The rain held off for our Palm Sunday procession, I gifted two beautiful little girls with a signed copy of Kaylee’s Easter Treasure, and I got to see a dear old friend!

Monday I cried out with the rest of the world as Notre Dame, and Al Aqsa Mosque, two glorious sacred, pieces of history were on fire. Despite the gripping news and videos all over the Internet and social media, I persisted with my edits for my middle-grade fantasy novel and managed to get the rest of chapter one and two edited along with half of chapter three.

Yesterday I survived the gloomy depths of the editing trenches. I finished chapter three and managed to get a significant jump on chapter four. I am going to be honest; I am actually enjoying my editing process. Many authors say that editing is a nightmare, but I am loving the transformation of each chapter!

I have rearranged my writing schedule around our Holy Week services, which isn’t too hard. It will actually be a nice change of pace for me given that writing is a rather isolated profession.

Will you be taking part in any of the Holy Week services?

I will make all our services this year, but the Good Friday and the Great Easter Vigil. I will be travelling down to help my son move home after completing his final year at University. I am one proud momma bear, he has worked hard over these past five years and I am proud of the man he is.

As an English major with a minor in Education with a love of reading, I keep trying to talk him into blogging or co-authoring a book with me! You never know now that he will be home for a couple of months, one of these days he might even try his hand at writing or blogging.
