If you're looking for a Saturday night church service in Windsor, here's a good option.
Have you ever wondered what a REAL nuclear bomb explosion looks like? A couple weeks ago, at the Historical Writers of America conference, I made a new friend--J. B. Rivard. In 1962, he witnessed tests of nuclear bombs. Here is his description:
#TECHNOLOGY! #SOCIALMEDIA ! THE TONGUE! We find ourselves firmly in the #DigitalAge. How then should we as Christians use such media? I wonder...does what #TheWord say about our speech apply to our texts? Should we think twice before hitting Send or Post?
Made in God's image, we are able to create. From the first printing press to the digital age, technology has been changing our lives. Working on my new book, a SciFi adventure with a touch of romance, I am more aware of technology in my life. Sandy and I are "digital immigrants"; we remember a time before televisions were in our homes, when we drifted to sleep listening to a transistor radio, when friends were people we talked with face to face.

Just made changes to my author software. StoryPlannerTools now has an extended synonym / antonym function.

The "Write Your Novel" class (coming up at a couple of venues over the next few months) is loosely based on what is provided in StoryPlannerTools.
Still writing. Next project is a Christian SciFi adventure with a touch of romance. BUT I'm taking a little break and heading to Wyoming for the eclipse. Hope you all are finding somewhere along the eclipse path to view this almost "once in a lifetime" event!
Thought of this short-short (590 words) story late last night:
I had never seen the sky so dark. The trees and our fields of wheat were lost in this unnatural shadowland as we headed west. The way was as familiar to me as the back of my hand, yet, in this awful blackness I hesitated.
“Hurry!” Above the grumbling of the world around us, my husband’s voice was clear. His hand reached back, barely visible in this stygian world....
