“Honestly, there’s no point in arguing who was responsible for the Abraham do-over. There was a lot going on then and frankly, I don’t think there’s anything to be gained by pointing fingers. I mean hey, the big guy commands Abe to sacrifice his son and then — ahem — at the last minute it’s our job to let him know that it’s just a test?

As I mentioned, I’m trying to wrap up a fun little novella* that I’m hoping to post here in the next month or so.

Just heard through the interwebs that she bucked up her courage and sent her most recent manuscript to the publisher of her dreams. And got a phone call from the editor saying she was up until 3 a.m. reading it because she couldn’t put it down.
Yes, I’m just a little bit envious, but in a really good way. This is inspiration. And sooo exciting!
