As I mentioned in my last post, we were heading out on our family vacation - to Lake Lundgren Bible Camp - the next day. And now - just like that! - we're back! This being Saturday and a Weekly Wrap-Up, you might expect that I'd expound in great detail about our entire trip right now. And I certainly could do that, as we had a wonderful time, and I have much to share. But I won't. Not now anyway.
Instead, I've decided to "tease" you, dear readers, by posting a little each day for a week! So tomorrow I'll write about last Sunday, and on Monday I'll share about last Monday, etc. That way, I get to savor the memories a bit, and you won't be overwhelmed with one long post and tons of pictures all at one time. My girls would think that's too much "suspense." But I think you can handle it. :^)
For now, I will say that I accomplished one of my goals for the week: I did a lot of writing. I was able to draft seven articles and gain some direction for an eighth, all of which will eventually be posted and/or linked here. It was fun to draft the "old-fashioned" way (i.e, in a notebook) instead of on the computer, and I'm thrilled to have done so much. I also put together my "writing calendar" for 2010-2011, which begins on August 1. Having such a calendar for the past few months has made a huge difference in the frequency of my writing lately, and I'm excited to keep up the pace.
And, while I was gone, I received a nice gift: I now have over 100 followers! In fact, as of today, I'm at 102. As I said last time, this blog is not about the numbers...but it's encouraging to know that more and more people are apparently interested in what I have to say. After all, isn't that a big part of why writers write in the first place?
If you're reading this, I hope you'll make a point of stopping by each day for the rest of the week to read my posts about our camp week. And here's the real carrot: If you come back tomorrow, you'll hear the really funny story that explains this picture.
