Some Wedding Pictures

It's wedding picture time!!!!

My family and friends all worked to decorate for us.  This is the bride and groom  table at the reception hall.


This is when I first stepped through those doors into the sanctuary, and the emotion of the moment hit me.  I didn't know whether I would make it down the aisle without crying.  There is something incredibly powerful about that moment when the double doors open and you take the first step onto the aisle.


My flower girl did such a good job sprinkling the petals so perfectly for me to walk on.

My sisters made the bridesmaid dresses.  I loved them.  They were long and flowing and modest and absolutely gorgeous. 

I love it that we're all smiling here.

The grand recessional of King Garrett and Queen Esther.

Yep.  Just like that, and I'm a married woman.  Kinda hard to believe.  After months of preparation, the entire  morning passed like a blink of an eye.  It's not fair how fast that went.  At the end of the day, I felt like everything happened so fast that I didn't have time to even see the day.  It was one of those "blink...blink...what just happened?!?!?!" moments.  I was glad somebody took pictures.  And I was also glad for  some quiet time afterward to slow it down and relive it.

I really am not posing here.  I'm just glancing over my shoulder as I head down the steps to get my picture taken.  Maybe the cape makes me look serious or something...

Cutting the cake.  Neither of us knew what we were doing, but he pulled it off with the skill of a surgeon.


I know you can't see all the designs on my dress, but there are roses and leaves and fleur-de-les and horses and owls and flowers.  There are three strands of beads that start front and center on my skirt and swoop down to the hem in the back.  For those of you  who remember my previous post wherein I was making a "surprise" applique: it was an owl because Garrett loves owls.  I don't have a picture of it here at my new house, but I will post it when I retrieve it from my old computer.


So many amazing friends were there and so many amazing friends couldn't come.  I am very blessed by all my friends.




     I hope you all are having a wonderful day!  As things slow down a little, I hope to be on here more often soon.  Happy writing, everyone!

Character Creation by Emily Ann Putzke
My character in Ain’t We Got Fun is Georgiana (Gi) Rowland, the older sister of Bess. Their family is struggling during the Great Depression, so Gi takes off for NYC to make a fortune and help them out. The sisters recount their adventures, joys and heartaches to each other. My co-author, Emily Chapman, and I wrote this story in letter form in January. Our characters are very different people! Here are a 5 things that helped me bring Gi to life, and give her a personality that’s all her own.
1.  Give Your Characters Flaws None of us are perfect, so our characters shouldn't be either. Gi is a fun, loyal, light hearted girl with big dreams. But she has a flaw that she struggles with throughout the entire story. Pride. She’s very stubborn, independent, and doesn’t want anything from anybody.
2. Use That Flaw to Stretch and Change Your Character Pride gets Gi in quite a few scrapes. Throughout AWGF, she’s constantly battling with it. Everytime she thi…

The Evil Seven Dwarves

Don't count the dwarves in the picture.  There's thirteen of them instead of seven like I was trying to find.  Pinterest isn't perfect, and I'm not a master in digital photo editing.
       But here is part of my twist on Snow White, and I am having more fun with it than you can imagine. 
     I have a queen...drop-dead gorgeous...cold...reserved...tormented...but not evil.
     I have a princess...sheltered...trusting...a little naïve...generally believes the best of people...but not stupid.
     I have a huntsman...big...terrifying to behold...but well-meaning.
     I have a maid...tender-hearted...driven to reveal the truth and set things right...but completely mistaken on so many points.
     I have an herbalist...talented...bound to serve the dark side but resenting it.
     I have 7 dwarves...blood-thirsty...twisted...scheming...evil.

Is that a catastrophe happening, way over yonder?

The next scene in my story is meant to be an important one.  Readers get to meet the dwarves in their own evil lair.  My heroine is tormented for their selfish purposes.  Big scene.

     But when I started writing it, it looked incredibly detached and boring.  "Yeah, look over there.  See those dwarves by the table?  They are tormenting our heroine.  Very sad.  The cottage is cute, though."  The scene just wasn't working.  And my story has been sitting in stasis awaiting inspiration.

     Last night, I flopped on the floor to daydream and snuggle my dog.  For a while, I let my mind wander here and there.  But gradually I came to my senses and realized that the first thing I felt on "awaking" was the hard floor.

     Suddenly, I was Moriah, regaining consciousness.  Hard floor.  Noises.  Light.  Hands on my hair.  And the scene came alive for me.  I could hardly wait to get up and start writing again.

     So, if your scene is too detached, try lying on the…
