OH. MY. GOODNESS. This little blog family officially has 100 members! To be exact, 102 – I appreciate each and every one of you. Not about to leave anyone out. 😉 And to clarify further, this number does not include me. Yes, I follow my own blog. *awkward laugh* Y’all, I follow it in order to be sure nothing weird is happening with the emails that are sent out! XD
Okay, enough of my silliness. I want to give a sincere thanks to you guys. I truly do love and appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you for showing such an interest in what I have to say. Thank you for your support and encouragement as I navigate the road of life. It truly means the world!
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you.– Philippians 1:3
I really don’t know how to express how grateful I am, so that verse will say it for me. I love all you members of this little blog family! May we continue to grow together in Christ.
I want to do something special for y’all in order to celebrate! So as a thanks for following my blog and supporting me, I’m going to make you something! For free, of course. XD
I’m going to make character graphics for the characters of your WIPs. If you don’t know what a character graphic is, here’s one I made for Temira, my main character from The Apostle’s Sister:
Now I’m going to make character graphics for you guys, as a treat and a token of my appreciation! You can pick any character from any one of your works – whether that’s a short story or a novel.
If you’d like me to make a character graphic for you, just fill out this form. (Please, no inappropriate requests. I will delete any of those immediately. I don’t think any of you guys would do that, but I feel it needed to be said.) You may sign up for one character graphic only. I’ll do my best to email it to you within a week of your request, but that depends on how many requests I get. The graphics will be done in the order the requests are submitted.
To submit a request, you must like this post, leave a comment, and be a follower of this site. Other than that, there are no requirements to sign up.
Sign-ups close on Sunday, June 6, at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. So if you’d like a graphic, be sure to submit your request before then.
Alrighty! I’m really excited to create those for you guys. I hope you like this prize!
Moving on, I have to tell you something important.
I’m taking a hiatus from regular blog posting. This hiatus will last until Monday, August 2.
I need a little break right now. I’m dealing with several big questions regarding the future of my novel, The Apostle’s Sister. I’m also dealing with big questions about what God has planned for me in the path of writing in general. I know he has called me to be a writer, but I’m not sure where he’s leading me with my writing. I need time to clear my mind and reflect on those things with him. Basically, at this point I’m not ready to continue blogging about my writing journey. I want to put out content for you guys that is encouraging, truthful, and discerning so that we can grow in our faith. Right now I’m not sure about several things and want time to bring them to God before I continue blogging about them.
Thanks for understanding!
I definitely won’t be disappearing, though. I’ll still be around the blogosphere, commenting on all your awesome posts! And you’re welcome to come on here anytime and say hi. I love chatting with you all.
Now for the other announcement: I now have platforms on both Instagram and Twitter! Head on over here to follow Joy C. Woodbury on Instagram (@discipleswhowrite), and over here to follow Joy C. Woodbury on Twitter (@joyc_woodbury).
Alrighty, that’s all, folks! Again, thank you so much for being such a support and encouragement to me. Blessings!
You know the drill – eat, pray, write, repeat!
