Okay, so I decided to take the plunge last night and sign up for the A to Z blogging challenge, where you post  on a different subject each day (except Sundays) based on the letters of the alphabet. If you're interested in joining as well, you can find the information at the A to Z Challenge Sign Up page.

So, first I'll delve into the blog topic of the day Angels.

Angels... what are they? They're messengers of God. If you look at a range of religions, most tend to have them in some form or the other. But, they're also strong and well about to fight. In the Bible, there's a notable passage where this happens:
Then the angel of the Lord went out, and killed in the camp of the Assyrians one hundred and eighty-five thousand; and when people arose early in the morning, there were the corpses--all dead. (Isaiah 37:36)
Castiel from the TV show Supernatural
One of my favorite depictions? Castiel from Supernatural. *grins* Okay, so he's great to look at, but I think he has the strength and sheer power I imagine angels having. They can definitely fight. Just think about Archangel Michael and the battle he lead against Satan's forces. Another great depiction of angels, in my opinion, is Watchers in the Night by Thomas Blackshear. After researching these celestial beings, the pretty, gentle female in a flowing gown with wings often shown on holiday cards is blown away.

What are your thoughts on angels?

Now, the Weekly Wrap Up! So what's happened since last week?

Not a lot happening with my current work-in-progress. I've been pretty busy with birthdays and vet visits.

Cool Stuff to Share

I found a great article on 8 Must-Dos For Aspiring Writers. Yes, I certainly did find it while doing research on my post this past Monday. *grins*

There's also a new video from my favorite band, Poets of the Fall that came out recently. Love, love, love! It's called Can You Hear Me, check it out.

Also, Castles & Guns hosted Acquisitions Editor for Crescent Moon Press Rochelle French on Wednesday. Make sure to check it out.

So... here's the current progress tally... meh.

This WIP's Word Count

2110 / 85000 words

I hope everyone has a great weekend! How has this week been for you?


  1. Have you ever read through the Apocryphal Book of Enoch? The story of the Angel's fall is just amazing.

  2. Thanks for the comment, TS! I've heard the story, but haven't read it myself yet. I'll have to do that. =)


Thanks for stopping by! I love getting new comments, and I hope to see yours soon.
