Posts Tagged ‘juvenile diabetes walk’

It’s that time of year again! Every year I walk in the JDRF Walk (for juvenile diabetes) in honor of my preacher’s daughter, who is now about nine years old (I think) and was diagnosed when she was five. This year, she has a problem with her hip joint (they think it’s a complication from her diabetes), so her parents are going to pull her in a wagon or push her in a wheelchair so she can still participate in the walk. I always walk with the family, and we’ve added a few extra people to the group this year.

I’m asking for donations again (no amount is too small!). I almost hate to do this on my blog since I haven’t posted anything in awhile, but I’m going to try to remedy that soon. Anyway, if anyone is interested in donating, email me at lauralynnelliottauthor@gmail.com or message me on Facebook, and I will give you the link to donate online. I’m not going to post the link here for privacy reasons.

The walk is this Saturday, so I need all donations by Friday. I’m not usually this late posting this, but I wasn’t sure I was going to post it until today. I HATE asking for money. But this is a good cause.

Thanks!

Just a really quick check-in before I get ready for church this morning.

I finished April off with about 4,000 words over my goal for the month. So that’s good. I took the last two days off from writing to do other stuff. Yesterday, I walked over 4 miles in the Juvenile Diabetes walk. Then I went to a Mother’s Day banquet yesterday afternoon hosted by my mom’s church. Sometimes there are other things we have to do besides write.

I’m kind of stuck in the plotting for my second Hemlock Ridge Mysteries series written under my Catherine Lynn pen name. I have the basic plot, but there’s some important stuff I’m not getting. I’ll probably go ahead and start writing, because a lot of my ideas come WHEN I’m writing instead of before. That’s why I like pantsing better. I think better during the process of writing than the process of plotting. I’m trying kind of a combination of both. I know the basic things I need to know for the plot, just not all the details. Does that make me a “plantser”? Hmm, a new word.
