The sun is shining, the humidex is climbing, the story is flat lining, the horse is wonderful, and the weeds are a pain. Yes, that sums up my life as of late. Missing you all. Lifting you up in prayer as I chauffeur daughters here and there, weed a lot, take care of Donner, and procrastinate from figuring out impossible story fixes.
But this post isn't about me, just thought I'd give you all an update, though. :)
I have something far more wonderful to share today. Many of you have probably already been blessed by knowing Jeannie Campbell, aka, The Character Therapist, but if you haven't, you're in for a real treat. She is a living breathing writing tool with a wonderful blog filled with character therapist reference info that's invaluable in creating three-dimensional, realistic characters. If your character has baggage, or even if he/she doesn't have a sordid past, the first place to go is Jeannie's blog to see how you can make he/she ring true to life.
Here's a short Bio on Jeannie Campbell:
Jeannie Campbell is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California. She is Head of Clinical Services for a large non-profit and enjoys working mainly with children and couples. She has a Masters of Divinity in Psychology and Counseling and bachelors degrees in both psychology and journalism. Two of Jeannie’s “therapeutic romance” manuscripts have garnered the high praise of being finalists in the Genesis Contest for unpublished writers, sponsored by the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), of which she is an active member. She writes a popular monthly column for Christian Fiction Online Magazine and has been featured in many other e-zines, newspapers, and blogs.
I hope you will all head over to Jeannie's new website and blog to find a writing tool worth bookmarking for good! Charactertherapist.com
May your characters draw your readers into their world, and may they help your readers grow too! Till next time, may life be a swell of sunshine and happiness to you and yours.
Surrendering to Him,
