>> It snowed like three Wednesday mornings in a row this month. It'd be warmer over the weekend, and then snow midweek. Kinda cool. ;P
>> I had some crazy conversations with my family. Not that that's unusual...
Tucker: Why does food get cold but drinks get warm?
Me: Because we like our food hot and our drinks cold.
Tucker: Not necessarily. What about coffee? Or ice cream?
Me:....Ice cream doesn't 'get cold'. Unless you like, put it in the freezer.
Tucker: No, no, you don't get it.
Me: Mhm. Okay. There is no logic here.
*at play practice*
Someone: *gives the cue for the guy who's playing Jesus*
Tucker: *walks out, flipping through his copy* Where are we?
Me: Go back, Thomas. We need Jesus.
Other narrator: We all need Jesus, Faith. It's not just you.
Mom: Why isn't all our grass the same?
Mom: Seriously! In some places we have real grass, and then we have this weird other grass, and then we have spots of just weeds!
>> Our church youth group put on an Easter skit! No pictures, but I would say it was a definite success. :D
>> I read my critique partner's new book. (Translation: I flailed over her new cast of characters and left 9274 comments in the document that were 78.3% inside jokes and 21.7% helpful stuff.) (But hey, at least I can do basic math.)
>> Amy and I did a 'one-arm day' in the name of research. We attempted to spend the entire day doing most tasks with only one arm/hand. I believe I can speak for both of us in saying that it was more difficult than we expected. ;)

|| Writing. ||
Things in the writing world went pretty well this month! I'm specifying writing world here, because most of it wasn't actual writing. But that's okay, because I'm still around the stories and all. <3
(Come to think of it, the only writing I can recall was a short story that I wrote off of a song I heard. Speaking of which, would y'all like to read something like that on here?)
On the publishing side, some things that happened were...
~ Love Needs No Words was published in paperback and ebook formats.
~ I finally published an ebook version of Dandelion Dust on Lulu!
In other news... *deep breath* I've had some inspiration in the area of War Tears. (Yes, my 127k word baby that's sitting alone on the shelf right now... *cries*) It's not enough to dash into edits yet, but I do have several handwritten pages of notes. So hopefully I'll have more soon. I've been praying about it, and I think I'll be able to dive back into it come June. *fingers crossed*
I'd originally planned to get into the editing of A Soldier's Freedom this month, but I ended up setting that aside and considering it my Camp NaNoWriMo project.
I also had some inspiration for another aforementioned story!
