The Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy blog tour book for March is The Resurrection by Mike Duran. In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour, I received a free copy of this book.
At one point while I was reading this book, I had put it down on the coffee table in the living room. My husband walked by and asked “Whatcha reading? Something about witches?” That got me thinking about book covers.
I hadn’t paid much attention to the cover of this book since I already read a little about it when it was presented for the tour this month. So I took a look at the cover as if I were looking at it in the bookstore and trying to decide whether to buy it or not.
I concluded that I would buy the book based on the dark, kind of ominous look of the cover and the way the story’s presented on the back cover copy.

Here’s Jack the border collie. He’s the newest member of our household.
It’s official. I have Spring Fever. Not a mild case either. It’s 66 degrees with bright sunshine. I cleaned five big garbage bags of junk out of our closet. I’m working on cleaning up my attitude. We’re getting a border collie Tuesday. All these things make me feel hopeful again during a really blechy winter.
So I’ve already failed at the post every week challenge. But I’ll pick myself up and try again.
Wow, no posts at all during the week. It was a really, really hard week at work.
But I’ll have more later today. I’m working on my goals for 2011. Yeah, I know January is almost over so I’m a little late on this. But in years past I’ve just thrown goals out there and failed. This year I want to set attainable, sustainable goals. That’s why it’s taking me so long.
I’m reading INSPIRED NURSE by Rich Bluni, RN. One of the questions Rich asks early on in the book is why do you do what you do? I’m trying to work out the answer to that question as it pertains both to my nursing career and to my writing. Right now I don’t have an answer for either. So that’s my goal for the week-to come back next week with an answer to that question that’s more than just the surface “Because I want to help people.”
So why do you do what you do? What keeps you going in your profession?
Do you use writing prompts? I love them for creative exercise. Here’s a fun one I copied directly from Poets & Writer’s email newsletter:
Choose three people who you know well and write a detailed character description of each one. Now change the gender, name, and a few physical traits of each one. Begin a story with all three characters standing in the rain outside of a house on fire.
If you use writing prompts, where do yours come from?
