When I'm not making PB&J and puppet shows or delving into history documentaries with the hubster, I find a little time to putter with words.
I've wanted to write a novel since I was five; last year, NaNo helped me realize that dream. Regardless is the tale of a young man who finds salvation in Jesus Christ in the earliest days of Christianity; he also finds persecution and the stark reality that he's still a sin-stained human...all told within the framework of real events from the book of Acts.
This year, I'm focusing on another character from Acts: Sergius Paulus, Roman proconsul to Cyprus.
I didn't imagine back then I'd write about Jesus, but I didn't know how He loved me then...or that my pastor would spend over a year preaching out of Acts, and I would spend every Sunday thinking, "Hmm...that's a story that needs to be told." Looks like I've got NaNo fodder for years to come.
