What’s up with Darlene? I just wrote a lengthy introduction about my health problems. Boring! I’ll shorten it to say I struggle with periods of sleepiness and alertness. When I’m sleeping as much as twenty hours a day, I get very little work down.
Last week was like that. I’m on the rebound. I’m working again, and I’m excited about the possibilities ahead.be
I’ve been invited to submit a proposal for a 34-week course in writing for home schooled writing students. What an exciting opportunity, to play a small part in training a new generation of writers!
I’m also finishing my devotional-writing project for the Living Loved project. They’ll be releasing a month-long sampler within a few weeks. I still have several remaining to write.
I’ve also been writing material for guest blog posts, working on my August column for Book Fun Magazine, and I’m about to finish up my third straight month of writing poetry. Here’s one of my efforts from yesterday, which reflects my ambivalent mood:
Excel: A word to celebrate
A statement implying all’s well
A bell ringing praise at the gates
A date by which time all must gel
Foretell disaster if I’m late
For excellence lost isn’t swell
