Let's get chatting this month! It would be great to have some of the newbies on the board come and join us, then we could get some real action going here! You really can chip in about anything, respond to what someone else has said, or tell us about your day or how you're feeling.

I'm pretty busy this week, trying to get as much of the house packed up as possible. Still don't know where we're moving, but we ARE moving. Plan is to leave our apartment by the end of May.

I'm really looking forward to our friends coming to visit next week! They´ll be here with us for a few days. Then DH and I have to leave to go to a mission conference and our friends will have a couple of days to themselves before they fly back to the UK. So excited to see them and show them some of my favorite places!

Yay! Some short story magazines I ordered have arrived. I´m trying to read lots of short stories, to prepare for writing my own with this course that I've started doing. I'm really enjoying it so far. Hope the stories are good and interesting to read...

Hey Jennifer! I'm so glad that you came to join me here and so sorry that I wasn't here to greet you. I hope you'll come back! I usually check in here much more regularly but am in the middle of a pretty crazy situation at the moment with our ministry (DH and I are missionaries in Spain) We're getting ready to move (but don't know where) and everything's up in the air at the moment.

I've tended to work more towards non-fiction. I have ideas for Christian non-fiction books. But as a child I always enjoyed creative writing and so now I´m getting back into it. The short stories that I like writing are more relationship ones (not love stories, but rather human relationships, between different people) The good thing about short stories is that you can try different kinds of writing out. I'd like to try a crime story or something too. I´m hoping to try and get some stories published in some magazines at some point... How far along have you got with your book? Really looking forward to getting to know you better!

I hope we can get some more action going on the May chit chat thread. It's kind of quiet here at the moment...
