...is when the tunes playing inside my head,
turn out to be the LORD trying to tell me something...

I love names. Good thing I had seven kids, huh? Gave me a huge opportunity to indulge my love of names.
I started collecting books on names when I was a teen. Now, most name books are of the 'name your baby' variety, so when I bought and brought home that first one at age 16 - well, you should have seen my mom's face! Wondering was there some news I hadn't told them...
Nope - not pregnant - just fascinated with names - where they came from - what they meant.
Writing gives me the opportunity to indulge my love of names as well. I've been working on a novel for some time now - lotsa characters, lotsa names to bestow. Lotsa fun for me!
How long have I been working on the novel? Well, when I started, I had it that the main character was 10 years old, because that was the age of my oldest child.
My oldest is now 15 - and the main character is now 12. Hmmm...
And the novel is 1/3 finished.
So...somebody's gotta get busy writing, eh?
