NaNoWriMo, Goals, & Giveaway III

I'm 5K words short of where I should be at this point. Hopefully tomorrow I'll make 7K and get back on track. This has been the best and worst week in a long time for this writer, growing pains as a writer and a follower of Christ.

Best: This week alone, God has given me some amazing gifts, including an amazing character that fell right into the middle of my work in process, UNSEEN LOVE, and like Caelina did with CHASING THE LION, has  grabbed the story and run with it. His name is Otho and he's something else. I can't wait for you all to meet him, and the hero and heroine of this story, Drusus and Laelia. Warning: Ladies, Drusus will absolutely steal your heart!

Worst:  Some things are easier said than done, but that doesn't mean we don't have to do them. Somethings that are hard we do because we want to, like write 50K words in a month. Others because God said so.

"Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion. Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men." Romans 12:14-18 (NKJV)

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Face my lions, not fear new beginnings, and make my NaNo goal. So I'm off to write, but I'd like your help with UNSEEN LOVE. And I'll shamelessly bribe you in the process (Because that's so Roman of me, hehe).

When the hero and heroine share that first kiss, whose head (Point of View) do you want to be in? His or hers?

A lucky commenter will be picked for another $10 Amazon or B&N gift card for any Love Inspired book they want.
