  1. Hehe, well with regards to the amount of time you spend writing, you just compare yourself to me and you’ll have an immediate confidence boost. Haha. Just kidding. Don’t compare yourself to others either way. God’s will (or as much of it as you understand) is always a better standard for you to live by than others’ lives.

    Oh yay! Congratulations on so much positive response to your call for Beta readers! X)

  2. Umm … the guy is a middle child with self-esteem issues … and the girl is super proper and strict … honestly, her personality/arc needs work. Not sure where I’m gonna go with her. But the guy has an older sister and a younger sister and a weird name. For the ’40s, anyway. And … I’d better stop. 😉

  3. Yes, it’s “That Plot Bunny.” XD It’s more of a semi-formed story idea now, though? Like, I don’t have most of the plot details pinned down. *knows more about characters than plots* *hides*

    (Maybe I will! Though yeah, I know what your answer will be … 😛 )

  4. Yayyyy! Is it “That Plot Bunny”??

    YES. HELP THEM. (And you can always ask my opinion, haha…but of course I think you know what my answer will be.)


    Oooh, interesting.

  5. Well, I didn’t expect everyone who got tagged to do it. 🙂

    Personally, I felt like I don’t do enough, but I think I unfairly compare myself oftentimes … and as far as writing, I guess I’m okay. I just worry that I don’t spend enough time marketing, but oh well, who cares! 😛 Yes, it’s a difficult balance. I hope you’re able to come to peace about it!

    Yes, I’ve had loads and loads of people, so no worries there! I was actually surprised with how many signed up. I’m sending it out to the first batch today. 🙂

  6. Yes, this is a WW2 novel! Although no more details. *mysterious* Okay, seriously, though, I’ll probably be talking about it sooner or later? In the next couple weeks? Because I honestly need to test it on people and see if it’s crazy. *is fighting a plot bunny* *is losing* 😛

    I’m glad! I’m honestly thinking about helping Jorvy along a little … *coughs* I’m thinking I didn’t give them half a chance this last November. But we’ll see. I’m gonna be asking some people their opinion in the next couple months and figuring this out. *nods*

    Um. *coughs* Noooo … not about a prayer at all … *coughs louder* Okay, maybe it is, but you didn’t hear it from me. 😉 I’m also super excited about Peter! He’s amazing!

    The truth is, I haven’t gone very far in the plans for the Bible study. I’m thinking 1 Thessalonians because that’s a favorite of mine, but I’m still working on it.

    *sips chicken noodle soup* Thank you. I’m starting to feel better now. 🙂

  7. IS THIS A WWII NOVEL?? *feels so smart for finding the clue and everything* 😛

    Anyway, I like your goals! (And that there’s 18 of them.) I hope that you will be able to accomplish all of them…especially all of the writing! I’m very excited to read Beyond Her Calling at some point!! (Unless you did something to Jorvy in which case…maybe I’d just rather dream.)

    And Alice Unanswered! What is this book, Kell? Why are you so mysterious? 😛 I’m going to throw out a wild guess and assume that the title is a reference to an unanswered prayer…we’ll see, though. But I’m very excited for this one because PETERRRRRRRRRRR. 😀

    And ooh, a bible study sounds interesting. Do you have any specific books/parts that you’re planning on studying?

    OH and get well soon!! *hands virtual chicken noodle soup*

  8. I just finished catching up with your posts – reading over a few of the more recent ones that I’ve missed out on. This comment is kind of a comment on all of those. 😉

    I noticed you tagged me in that one 12 Days of Christmas post. Ahaha. Ha. Oops. Too late. Though my mind did start scheming about posting in randomly in June or July. I’ll probably forget, but I at least titled a draft. I didn’t feel particularly sentimental about Christmas-y things this year, anyway. Well, thanks for thinking of me.

    Looking at your review of 2017 and your goals for 2018, you seem to be doing a LOT of publishing! Wow! And you seem to be doing a lot of writing. I say that with a bit of a sigh wishing that I was fulfilling more of a writer’s life… but with the commitments I’ve taken on, I’m finding that I’m not… The struggle is knowing how to go about life in the way that most honors the Lord. Push to write more? Finish well with my other commitments and hold on until then (though not just hold on, but own that maybe God wants to use me there?)? Ah well. Life is an adventure and more about knowing Him than doing it all right. Enjoy the writing/editing/working-with-betas and such. I wish I had the time to beta read for you. Have you had many people take you up on it?

  9. The video will probably be out in a couple hours … assuming it ever uploads … *growls*

    Oh, that’s right, I could buy books! But I don’t think my mom will let me … so yeah, it still is useless for me … xD Maybe I should send it to you … or save it for college/a car/a house/etc. etc. etc. … either way. 😛

    Well, it as a totally random number, honestly? I have no doubt that I’ll fail miserably – my estimation would be about 600 followers by 2019 – but it’s a fun goal. 🙂 And thank you!

  10. Ah, I’m so excited to see your YouTube video!! I probably will forget about it (I already forgot about your channel) if you don’t remind me, so remind me. 😉

    And KELLLLL. “I have no use for money, to be honest. *shrugs*” IF YOU HAVE NO USE FOR MONEY, WILL YOU GIVE IT TO ME??? I could buy so many good books with that money… *stares off into the distance*

    And hmm why is it exactly 818 followers, Kellyn?? Did you look into the future and see that this was how many followers you’d have?? And aaahh, wishing you all the luck on publishing At Her Fingertips!! It’s going to be amazing, I know it. ❤

  11. You know what they say: shoot for the moon, ’cause even if you miss, you’ll land on a star. 😉

    Well, actually, I don’t really know what they say, I’m just guessing that’s how the quote goes.

    YAY! Ooh, awesome! I can’t wait!

  12. Awwwww, thank you! I hope so, too, although I don’t expect to complete every single one. 😉 But I’ll try!

    Yay!!!!! I’m so excited to work with you, and everyone else … I’ll be sending it out to the first batch of sign-up-ers after the New Year. 😊

  13. Well, basically you just read it and let me know what you think. It doesn’t have to be complicated or anything. Just “I liked this part, but I wasn’t sure how I felt about this part, and this part needed some work …” Or however you want to phrase it. : )

    Haha, I get you sometimes … I don’t always keep my goals. Okay most the time I don’t. 😋

    It was an Amazon gift card from a relative, haha … I wouldn’t usually have money. 😉

  14. Oh my goodness, I just love reading your posts so much. XDD Your goals sound awesome! I hope you’re able to complete them all!

    And squeeee, I’ve always wanted to beta-read one of your novels. I just signed up to beta-read At Her Fingertips! I’m so excited.


  15. Okay, so I want to beta-read At Her Fingertips (I’ve never beta-read anything………..Unless it was that random thing someone sent me to read……….)

    But I have no idea what it is about, so I kinda need info….. 😀

    GOALS???????? WHAT ARE THOSE??????? *screams* *cries*

    I don’t really blame you for getting seven books off of Amazon…………….I would do the same thing if I had money……….. 😛


  16. Of course, with this being me we’re talking about, I couldn’t find it…? 😂 Can you please tell me where it is? 😛
