Bible in 90 days: day 50.

Case had his sentencing postponed. His wife says this is a good thing, and other things are happening that might be the miracle that was prophesied for him.

I came across this passage from Jeremiah today that seems to apply to him:

7 “But blessed are those who trust in the LORD
and have made the LORD their hope and confidence.
8 They are like trees planted along a riverbank,
with roots that reach deep into the water.
Such trees are not bothered by the heat
or worried by long months of drought.
Their leaves stay green,
and they never stop producing fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7-8

I pray Case and the family will stay green despite the drought and heat of injustice.

Writing: Doing my line edits for Sushi for One?, which aren’t very bad at all, thank goodness.

Here’s an interesting fact for all you writers—out of the entire manuscript, my line editor gave me ONE COMPLIMENT. The rest of the comments weren’t mean or anything like that, but no warm fuzzies or hand-holding here.

I’m not complaining—my crit partners are like that, too (My editor is actually nicer than my crit partners). But it occurred to me that some of you guys might not realize that once you’re contracted, your editor doesn’t have time for cheerleading.

Put up another post on characterization at my Story Sensei blog.

Oh, and I discovered in my line edits that I also made up a new sea—the Kyoto Sea. LOLOLOLOL

My editor did NOT let me get away with that. :)


  1. Praising and wondering at what God's doing in Casey's situation. I know in my heart it will glorify God in ways we never expected. God is so amazing!

  2. Thanks for the tip re: the editing process. I think we aspiring types sometimes mistakenly think everything will be glamorous and fantastic once we sign on the dotted line.
