Things on My Mind This Cool October Afternoon

National Novel Writing starts in four and a half days! I am excited. I’ve been (finally) seriously planning this story idea that has been in my head for the past two years or so, and I can’t wait to actually write it!

I made Breakfast treats this morning after searching everywhere for the recipe my Grandma sent me in the mail. (I don’t know why it was on the kitchen table…) They’re basically like oatmeal raisin cookies, except thicker and more lumpy.

Wondering if I should get a second job. Substitute teaching isn’t exactly a jack pot.

Wondering if I shouldn’t get a second job. Yet, at least. Maybe after November is over and the first draft of my novel is written??

The Last Word and the Word After That by Brian D. McLaren.

This is a great, thought-provoking book for anyone who feels ready to confront the existence (or non-existence) of hell, something that has bugged me for a long time. As a person coming from a Christian background, I have had trouble getting around the whole “hell” issue or at least the way most Christians perceive it and turn it back onto others. For instance, "you’re going to hell if you don’t believe this or that or do this or that." That whole thought process aggravates me like no other! This is a pretty heavy topic so feel free to disregard it. But this is what has been on my mind most intensely as of late.
