Writing Update, Inkling Explorations and Giveaway Winner, and a Link

Hello all! Life has been super busy here, but I've also most happily been able to keep up with David's Shoulders over the last two weeks! After an intense first draft of Chapter 7 (taking about a month to complete) I started Chapter 8 on Monday and actually reached the halfway point yesterday.

Chapter 8 is also embarking us en route back to the west -- this time with our hero firmly (and physically) on board -- hence, it's the perfect time to share another handy link. While I haven't yet fully explored the site, this page is an organized layout of bugle calls used daily (and in action) by the US Cavalry, etc. Ordered from sun-up to sun-down, you can also listen to an example of each. Check it out here and let me know what you think!

And I'm so delighted to have had all your enthusiastic participation in the Inkling Explorations launch this month! Thank you so much everyone!!

Our happy winner of the paperback copy of Greenwillow is: Natalie
(Congratulations, Natalie! :) And I'll be sending you a direct email with the details.)

Remember, the link-up IS still open through the end of the month! The original link post is here.

And have no fear -- the violet subject is not exhausted as there are still at least three Anne of Green Gables/Montgomery quotes (that I can think of). For a teaser: one mentions violets and amethyst during Anne's early days at Green Gables, one uses the description "empurpled" (also during her early days), and one comes from Paul Irving. Have fun guessing and if anyone wants to post them, I'd be thrilled!

Hoping you're having a wonderful Friday!

  1. I'm hoping to do my violets link up tomorrow, Heidi! Sorry for being so ridiculously late - I hope to be more prompt next month. :-)

    Congrats, Natalie!

    1. Heidi, I have added my post to the link-thing in your previous post! I had to thank you, because it was so much fun!!!

    2. Naomi,
      Oh, you're so welcome and your post is absolutely beautiful! I checked it out this morning on my Dad's tablet and can't wait to get back over here and leave a comment. ;)

  2. Thanks so much, Heidi! I'm SO excited to read the book! And I'm so happy to hear your writing is going well. I know how ridiculously happy that can make us writers! ;)
    And, thank you, Naomi! :)

    1. Natalie,
      You're welcome! I love Greenwillow to pieces and I'll be so excited to hear if you enjoy it, too. :)
