I'm So Confused

Today is Tuesday, August 28, and I'm trying to set up a blog. But I'm so confused. I seemed to have created three different blogs, but I only want one. Maybe the extreme heat in our area for weeks on end now, fried my brains.

I'm hoping that blogging will get my creative juices flowing better. I did have good news in the mail. A contract came from Bordon Books for a story to be published in The Best Dad in the World. That was a nice surprise. And Chicken Soup for the Soul: Celebrating Brothers and Sisters contacted me about a "media blitz" they are now having for the book. That's neat. My story in the book is "You're Too Cute To Be A Boy." My sons and daughter will get a kick out of the story, once they read it. I think. I hope! And I received my copy of the September issue of Catholic Digest, a few days ago, with my story in it. I'm on page 74, in case anyone reading this subscribes to it.

Well that's enough good news for today. I am going outside to do a rain dance. Hoping it will help end this long, dry period we've been in. And a little prayer can't hurt either: Dear God, please bless these beautiful but dry woods with some rain, soon, Amen!"

I'm confused too. I wrote a comment and it's gone. You have to sing the rain song along with your dance to get rain. Girl scouts did it and it worked. "The Lord is good to me, and so I thank the Lord, for giving me the things I need, like the sun and the rain and the apple tree, the Lord is good to me!"
glad you had a good mail day.
can't wait for the book!

Welcome to blogging, Renie! I'm sure you'll love it. I think you'll find that it does get a writer's creative juices flowing.

I'm sure this will be a successful blog, that's interesting and fun!

Yes, send down the rain, Lord!

Oh, thank you for the words to the rain dance prayer! I will dance and use the words today!

And thanks for the nice comment. This blogging is kind of fun. :)
