Hello. Please forgive me for taking so long to get back to you! I really appreciate your willingness to be writing partners with me. Part of the reason it has taken me so long to get back to you is because I had also posted on another writers’ group and received lots of replies.
I asked for a writing partner because after spending a year on my own focused on my writing, I realized I needed to do something different. So, I tried reaching out to other writers. I’m glad I did, it has been a blessing to me to see all the people out there willing to help. But I have too many other projects on my mind right now (baby number four is on the way), and I decided to give my writing a break. I’m not sure for how long, but at least for a month. I am no longer looking for a writing partner.
I apologize again for not replying to you sooner.

Thank you! My whole family is excited about the baby, too. 🥳
I live in the country. The land here is very hilly with a nice mix of pasture and wooded areas. We have lots of oak trees and cedars. One of the neat things about where I live is that you never know what the weather is going to throw at you. I’ve had the air conditioner on in the dead of winter once, and another time I wished for heat in the summer! This year we have had the longest and coolest spring that I have ever experienced. It’s been so lovely.
Where do you live? You’re in Israel, right? What part?
Yes, I do have a WIP. I am focusing on completing a first draft of a story I started at least thirteen years ago. *deep breath * So, yeah, it’s time to get it written! I’m maybe half way through? I think the genre would be considered fantasy, but there is no magic or unusual creatures.
Ooh! I enjoy learning about the early twentieth century time period! I’m more of a 1910s girl myself (it’s the clothes. It’s SO the clothes! 😆), but the twenties are cool too. And a good mystery is always fun!May 19, 2020 at 9:33 am #112788
Thank you for pointing out the groups to me. That sounds like what I’m looking for. I’ll check them out.
So my husband does various construction and welding (today he’s going to help build a rocket mass heater), but he’s primarily known for blacksmithing. He could do it full time if he wanted, but he enjoys variety and working around other people too much for that. 😊 He makes railings, fireplace tools, knives, and custom ironwork. He loves getting unique custom orders. He does not shoe horses, though he gets asked about it often. In the past, it was common for the local blacksmith to do farrier work as well, but these days they are usually two different occupations.
In the wonderful words of S. D. Smith, I feel called to write “Stories to make us brave.” The stories I’ve worked on the most are fairytale, historical fiction, and fantasy. But I also have ideas for contemporary fiction, sci-fi, and dystopian.
That’s cool that you’re in MO. We can probably meet sometime. I’m in south central MO. Do you ever go to the Baker Creek heritage day festivals in Mansfield? My husband is the demonstrating blacksmith there.
