Talk is Cheap

March 18, 2015

Hello everybody.  I’m finally back, and like I have said before, hopefully for good.  Things are on the upward swing here, and having spent a couple of years trying to figure out what to do with my blogs since I have undergone a bit of app overload, not to mention overload with blogging, podcasting, and writing as well.  Well, I figured out one thing – like the title says, talk is cheap.  I am not going to mention any deadlines, or when I hopefully am going to have something out; it will just happen, and you will know when it does.  I am going to make small deadlines, but they are going to be for me, and me alone.  I have found out that it is the best way for me to work.  As a writer or artist, or no matter what you do, I’d reccommend this action.  Do whatever works for you.  Don’t let anyone else tell you what to do.  You have to find your way with God’s help.  

Ok.  Now for the news.  For the past few years, I have been prayerfully reading and Illustrating Leah Pauls‘ book, The Tale of the Runaway Toenail, and this Saturday, we will be taking it to Pagemaster Publications Service, a local publication service to see what they can do for us.  I am looking forward to this appointment. Once this project is done, I will be concentrating on another childrens’ book.  

Secondly, I have completed chapters nine and ten of Sword of Earth.  I am also beginning to write short stories that tell of each character’s history.  This will also help with the world building for future edits.  

Thirdly, I am still writing for the King’s Poetry blog, and doing a podcast.  Again, I am not going to put myself on a public schedule; talk is worth a penny or less.

Fourthly, I am starting another blog and podcast.  Yes, another blog.  I know I got overwhelmed by it all last time, but I tried to put myself on too strict of a routine.  That got into the “I should do this…”, and it got to be an obligatory thing, rather than something I enjoyed.  That was the thing that kept me away from everything.  Anyway, the Blog is going to be called VIBE Visually Impaired Blogged Ezine.  there I will talk about anything relating to accessibility, especially for the visually impaired.  I will rate gadgets, apps, give hints on how things might be done in the kitchen, how to be thrifty, and more.  I know it’s a lot, but this has been brewing in my head for many years, and now it’s time for it to get out.  

I will still occasionally work on my other blogs such as The Kent Chronicles as well, but what has been mentioned here is enough.  of course things will change as time goes by.  Hopefully this will all turn from pennies to dollars someday with the Lord’s help but if not, that’s ok too.  🙂 Well, until next time, may your Journeys be safe, take care, and God blessl.  Bye for now.

Tesseracts 18: Wrestling with— Space–an update

I can hardly wait for this to happen. Keep an eye out for the news  I will post about it no matter what happens. May your journeys be safe. Take care, and God bless. Tesseracts 18: Wrestling with— Space–an update.

A New Beginning

December 28, 2013

Well, I can hardly believe that 2013 is almost over!  A new year is beginning in a few days, and this site is beginning with a new image.  Why change this from Heart’s Alive?  Hearts Alive is the title of my whole ministry, from my writing to my art, and that includes music.  All my art comes from my heart, but it is nothing if not made alive by our Lord and Savior.

Hearts Alive! will continue on where Michelle Earl’s Writing left off – a news of what’s going on in my life.  I intended for this blog to be just a writing life blog, but I finally realized that they are all connected; they are all worship art.  That means obedience to where the Holy Spirit leads.  So, I ask that you please bear with me during the next few weeks as I continue to figure out how this site will morph into its new one.  I will bring out some polls for you, and I ask that you participate.  It would help me out a lot.

News

As of yesterday, I have edited Maidenhood Sign, a short story I had submitted earlier in the year.  I have submitted the new version to Tesseract18, a science fiction and fantasy anthology.  With the Lord’s help, maybe it will get in there. If not, well, there’s always more magazines and anthologies out there.

I pray your Christmas went well, and that your New Year will be blessed.  May your journeys be safe; take care, and God bless.

A LOT of News

August 1, 2013

Hi everyone,

Much has transpired since I last posted a note here. I have received my piece back, and I found out that I have a lot to learn with regards to writing, and I may take a course, but I do have an idea of how I might be able to work through it and make it a better story. That’s good.

I have since written some poems and revised others making the King’s Poetry blog a bigger place, but I’d like to make it even better. My only problem is that I don’t want to add illustrations yet because when I put the chapbook together, it’s going to have illustrations and photos. I will still put in the odd one to entice people, but I’d like to keep it to a minimum. What do you think?

Thirdly, I have finally started the King’s Poetry Podcast. Look for it In itunes, or under my name in Spreaker or Sound Cloud. There are two under my belt right now, and I’m hoping for another before the end of the day.

So what’s going on with sword of Earth? Not much, but it is going. I don’t know, after I lost the data again, I just couldn’t start again, but I finally gave myself a kick in the seat of the pants and I have been writing it. I’m going on vacation this week, and I don’t know if I’ll be writing anything in the book. It all depends whether I will be taking my computer with me. I still will be writing, but I have another tool, which I’d rather not mention at this time.

In the art field, I am working on a course on drawing fantasy characters through going through a book. I’m really getting to understand how the human body is put together with it. Not only that, the author is helping me with various careers that a person can have, and giving me lots to think about. If I can, I will take a picture of one of my sketches. I can hardly wait.

So, what’s going on the Audioboo front? Not much. I have been doing a boo here and there, and I know there is a lot to do. I hope to have another entry soon.

Well, I think that’s all for now. May your journeys be safe, take care, and God bless. Bye for now.
