30 Day Writing Challenge: Day “We’re Done!”

Well, 26 days is close enough to 30 right? The last week of August decided it was going to go out with a bang, so I just didn’t have the time to write. I even had the questions ready to go, so adding those here. Please feel free to share your answers!

  • What is your most memorable airport/airplane experience?
  • What’s one of your favorite animals and why?
  • What are 5 states in the U.S. you’d like to visit?
  • What are your favorite zucchini recipes? (This one I 100% made up because I have zucchinis growing like nobody’s business 🙂 )

But the good news is that I was already planning to celebrate the end of the month (and summer) with a giveaway!!


Also, I’m excited to be kicking off the newsletter this Fall! If you’ve been around for a minute or two, you know I’ve gone back and forth about it. To be honest, I haven’t really been into it and I figured out why – I never had an idea I was super excited about for the bi-monthly newsletter. But that has changed and I’m really looking forward to sending these out. It will be a mix of the latest and favorite books, exclusive author interviews, fun giveaways, and more! I hope you’ll join me!

And today’s post is combining the two. Sign up for the newsletter and you’ll be entered your email to win a collection of recent releases, a Literary Rebel Mug, and sticker! Can’t wait to share with you author interviews, favorites books, and more!

Please enter by 9/9/19. Void where prohibited by law.

Enter to win!

What is one of your favorite movies and why?

Because it shares profound truths on so many levels. If you haven’t seen it yet, please do. I wrote a lot more about it here.

“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.”

What are 5 countries you want to visit next?

A map of some of the countries I have been to.

  • Italy
  • Spain (and while I’m in Western Europe, I’d go back to France and England)
  • New Zealand
  • Australia
  • Antartica (There are cruises people. Cruises)

What is one of the best epitaphs you’ve seen or heard of?

“A life that stood out as a gospel of self-forgetting service. He could have added fortune to fame, but caring for neither, he found happiness and honor in being helpful to the world.”

George Washington Carver lived an amazing life. Born into slavery, he went on to impact the world in incredible ways, especially as a scientist. What a legacy to leave.

Not quite an epitaph, but this is one of the sweetest. If you haven’t read a lot of Tolkien, look up the story of Beren and Luthien and you’l understand why!

What do you think is the most important question in life?

Currently it’s WHY DID I DECIDE TO DO THIS WRITING CHALLENGE?! haha! Y’all, its like the end of August decided to test me. But I shall keep on!

So back to the question: Outside of matters of faith (like asking where you stand with Jesus; is He your Hope? Have you surrendered your life to Him?), I think the most important question is am I living my life in such a way that my impact will make the world a better place in some small way? Am I thinking of others? Am I generous? Do people know I love them?

More than one question, but you know me with words…I always go over 🙂. What about for you?

Did you ever forget to pack anything on a trip? What did you do?

A photo from the trip – one of the most beautiful beaches ever!

This wasn’t so much of a “I forgot to pack” as much as it was a “the airline lost my luggage and delivered it the night before I left” situation. It was for one of my cousin’s weddings in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. I was photographing the wedding, so my carry-ons were my camera equipment. Thankfully, my cousin was prepared with plenty of brand new bathing suits and graciously shared dresses and clothes. Good thing most of my time was spent at the beach :). I had long hair then too, so all natural both with hair styles and makeup. One thing you learn with traveling is that when things don’t go as planned, you just have to roll with it.

Still one of my favorite trips ever!

30 Day Writing Challenge: Day 20

If you were to write a book right now, what would it be about?

Be prepared for some huge ideas 😂…It would either be a really long love letter to Jack and Tollers or a biography on Henry Ossawa Tanner.

Or, if someone would like to fund a year long travel-around-the-world expedition, I promise to write a book about it.

In what way has God shown Himself faithful recently?

I had the opportunity to write a short devotional for Beloved Women with Christina Patterson. Incredibly thankful for opportunities like this! God has shown His faithfulness in the words He inspired, but also for the chance to write for women.
