Please excuse and understand any misspellings. Like Jay Leno, I’m dyslexic. He often states he’s a terrible speller. I am, too. Plus, I don’t recognize my mistakes. I can proofread something ten times and either don’t see errors or, when I correct them, I make them worse. I’ve had friends proofread which doesn’t help because, again I’m likely to add more errors.
And now the speller on the blog site doesn’t work. Every time I run it, the messages comes back No misspellings. I know that’s not right because I never write a paragraph without problems.
I try. I really try to write cleanly. I even wrote a section in the book The Overcomers about my struggles.
So now I’m going to run the spell check and reread this and hope you can decipher it and forgive me.
The writing world is odd and small. We run into some authors over and never meet others. However, I’ve been fortunate to bump into Ginny several times.
We both wrote for Love Inspired and Ginny still does. While we were writing for Love Inspired, another author confessed she was dyslexic and had always been embarrassed about this. About ten of us writers for Love Inspired said we were dyslexic as well and we weren’t a bit ashamed of that. Ginny and I have learning disabilities and–together with three other Love Inspired writers–told our stories of how faith helped us overcome our problems. The title of that book is–not unexpectedly–The Overcomers. We self-published that book, available at amazon.com.
THEN, shortly after I signed my three-book contract with FaithWords, I discovered Ginny had, too. Yes, we keep bumping into each other. In Ginny’s three book series, each book will place a story about a woman in the Bible in a much more modern setting. Here’s a list of the book in her THE WOMEN OF HOPE series:
For Such a Time as This, available now!
Remember Me When, June 2013
She Shall Be Praised, 2014
I’ve read FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS and loved it. Look for a review here Thursday.
Tomorrow Ginny will blog on her fantastic and incredibly busy life. I’m so glad she found time to drop in here.
