Slow Going

Work, work, work . . . I wish it wasn't necessary for me to go back to full time work. But at least it's proving financially profitable. Sales have been good at the camera shops (for the most part) but I can't wait until early January so that I'll be back to full time writing. Talking photography, upselling products and informing customers of new equipment and photographic techniques is a lot of fun for me, but it has seriously detracted from the amount of writing I want to get done.

Please pray that I will find the time and be creative to finish Swords of the Six within the next couple of weeks. I am very pressed for time and I need to send the edited manuscript back to AMG Publishers soon.

We're praying Scott. How was you official birth-day? I hope you had a good day.

Remember, God's in control, and He'll provide you with creativity and everything else you need. :-)

Thanks Kelley, I had a nice birth-day. Relaxed mostly, did some editing and later went to a movie (Enchantment). Which was quite good by the way!

Shayna, belated is better than never and I just realized that I never wished you a happy birthday! So please accept a very belated happy birthday from me! (:

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
