Hello, my friends. We promised to return when the summer ended, and fall seems to be quickly approaching. Here’s a quick update on the happenings of the Gsquared girls whilst we were away from the blog…
I, Gracelynn, have undergone a massive amount of change. My father was recently offered the job as worship pastor at Spring Creek Baptist church, and we’re taking the mission God has presented us with head on. As I’ve told you before, I was home-schooled for four blessed years, and that changed over the summer as well. My family had a heart to heart, and we decided to send me and my sister to Clarksville Christian School. It is certainly different, perhaps not even what I’d prefer, but I truly believe God has me here for a reason. Through the progressing year I’ve been intentional to keep this mindset; “So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.” 1 Corinthians 15:58
On another note, in the writing world, Gwyneth and I began yet another story (our third). Currently calling it “Revolutionary,” it takes place during the Revolutionary War from both Britain and America’s perspective. It has an insane amount of characters, and we’ve just begun to truly understand how to write them and keep their personalities their own. It’s tempting to make them someone whom we’ve already written. People always ask, “What’s your story about?” and I nearly always reply with, “Are you sure you’re ready for this conversation?” I’m sorry to disappoint, but I shan’t give you a summary. You’ll have to continue to read our blog to get the updates, and more importantly, clips from the story itself.
As for Four for an Omen, I can proudly announce that we have a mere seven chapters left to write before we’ll pursue editing. To continue with this beautiful tale, we’ll need all the support we can get. We currently aren’t trying to publish, and have no need to fund raise… yet. So as of now, we simply ask for your encouragement, and your prayers. Specifically, prayers that the King of kings will spark inspiration and creativity within the souls He created.
Over the summer we tried something new, and deemed them “writing challenges.” I gave Gwyneth a scene and a character, and told her to surprise me. She soon did the same for me, and we fell in love with the idea. It developed our ability to write on the spot, and strengthened our imagination. We have decided to post our challenges on the blog from this point on. They’ll likely include characters from our stories, thus giving you a sneak peek. Enjoy!
(P.S) Congrats to Gwyneth for passing her road test and getting her licence!
