"Oh, I'm so glad we made up."

 If I don't live through this, I want one of you to show up at my burial dressed as the Grim Reaper. Don't say a word, just stand silently while the service is going. Another of you is ordered to bury me with an elephant bone just so I can confuse the future people. Another has to update my facebook and another my twitter. Say things like, "I died." And then keep posting random comments. Movie quotes, and anything you can think of. 

 Thank you.

 Okay, so I'm being a bit dramatic, but today's editing almost did me in. Besides, I now want to die so all of you can do all those things for me. Oh yes! And I insist someone MUST play Stayin' Alive. Like, wait until it gets all quiet and such and then turn it up really loud. Just don't let my cousin dance. 


 On a rare serious note I'd like to ask for prayer for two things. One is that I will be able to get this book edited and will be able to do it well. The other is that I will find a job by next week. The one I have is ending on Tuesday and I've no leads to anything else. And, with a flat to pay for, that isn't good. The job I thought I had fell through and I can't seem to get one anywhere in town, also it is fast becoming harder with school starting. So, if you could pray for me I would be MOST grateful. It has been a test on my trust in God that He will provide for me.

 Also, I'm sorry if my comments on your blogs are short and, somewhat discombobulated. I fear it is either that or no comment at all. No, that or me short circuiting my brain, which might be fun to see.

 Well, back to the....point of this post? Yes, I suppose that is it. I have some cover things Clair and I have been working on. Right now I will just share the ideas she is kind of going off. These are just colour ideas, not actually designs she is trying out. (We're still kind of working on the design.)

This is one colour idea we've had. The browns and golds will give it an older feel, kind of like an old photo.

We've also considered adding more colour. Something like this, bright and stand outing...

Or, something in the middle of the two.

 Now I need to go. I have to redo the three chapters I've been editing. Somehow, replacing was with had makes everything sound worse. 

 Quote is from the coming movie review. The hero's best friend walks in on this girl and the hero, who is pointing a pistol at her. 

 Which colour scheme do you like best?



  1. Hope you find a job real soon. And I'd be happy to send out random movie quotes on Twitter for you.

  2. I'll be praying!

    My favorite color scheme is The Burning Sky one. It grabs your attention the best, IMHO.

  3. My four brothers and I like the brown and gold idea best.

  4. I like the first covers color scheme best, it just seems to suit!
    What, you mean blog comments aren't supposed to be short and discombobulated? Huh, I might to to work on my own comment style then..... squirrel! ;-)

  5. poor darling! You will make it though! yes indeed you will! And I'm praying for your job finding thing.

  6. I'll certainly pray that you get a nice job fast! :)
    I like the first cover too. It looked really awesome.

  7. Sheesh. Editing sucks, eh? I think my work's tolerable until I start editing. Then horror! Chocolate! You deserve it.
    Yeah, replacing *was* with *had* isn't the smoothest approach. Sometimes you have to get in and rework the sentences. I found that out the hard way too. But, now (62 rewrites later) I hardly ever even need *was*!! It'll come!
    Oh, hope things start working right, eh. Keep swimming! (just keep swimming...swimming...what do we do we swim. swim. swim...) :P

  8. I love the first color scheme! The last one is my second favorite.

    Heh heh heh.... I'll dress up the reaper. I think that's a positively brilliant idea. Another brilliant idea that you can do while your waiting to get to heaven is find a friend and when you go in the elevator, wait for someone to come in and then start up this elaborate plot.
    You: Did you get all the bloog out of the bathtub?
    Friend: Yes, I cleaned it all up. I don't know what I'm going to do! People are going to start to get suspicious....
    You: We'll have to find a new dumping ground for the bodies.
    Person in elevator: O_O *runs away*
    Maybe not a murder plot though... that could get you in trouble. xD Anyway, it's something I've always wanted to try.

    I hope you find work soon! I'm sure you will. =) God will provide.

    And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
    2 Corinthians 9:8

    And good luck with your editing! Editing stinks... but it's worth it in the end. =D
