Question For You: What To Write?

 
 Today, I actually have a question for you.
   I know, it's a bit odd.
   The thing is, though I love writing blog posts, I've been struggling with what I should write. So I decided, "why not ask the people who are reading them?" Makes sense, right?
   I've got a few subjects that I could write about, and I really want you to tell me the truth about what you enjoy reading most, and what you would enjoy seeing (whether I've written things like that before or not). Don't just read it and brush it off - give me your input!
   Okay, here goes. I could write about . . .

   1) My Books

   This is probably one of my favorites to write about, because it's what I'm the most passionate about (second to God, of course). This includes things like my Character Guest Posts, and anything else I happen to come up with. If you want things like this, give me specifics! Do you want to know about characters? Setting? Word count? Story line?

   2) My Writing Process

   This is a bit different than my books themselves. This would be things like how I plan, come up with ideas for my stories, inspiration, etc.

   3) What I'm Planning to Do With My Writing

   A lot of people write for fun, but for me I write differently. I write because I want to go into that as a career. I could talk about the processes I'm going through, recent things I've researched about writing, etc.

   4) MK Life

   What it's like to live overseas! This is a bit tougher to write about because it's actually not that different from any normal person's life. But I could still try, giving you updates and such on strange things that I've seen lately, restaurants I like to go to, different Thai traditions, etc.

   5) Favorite Reads

   I am a reader. I could suggest books that I've enjoyed, or a few favorite authors of mine.

   6) What I've Been Up To

   This would by far be the most boring thing to post about, as I'm not the most interesting person. But I'm sure I could figure something out - like actually getting out of the house and doing something so I have things to report ;)

   7) Short Stories

   I've never been one to write that many short stories, but I have written a few. If that's something people would actually enjoy reading, I wouldn't mind sharing a few! 

   8) Memories


   I mean, I do actually have memories. A lot of 'em. 


   So here's what we're going to do. I want you to honestly answer which you would prefer hearing about. If you have more than one, that's totally fine! Tell me in the comments or on my Facebook page Julia Witmer, Author. Don't be shy - I need your help!
   If there's something I haven't mentioned that you'd like to hear about, tell me, and include specifics!

         What would you like to hear about?

Things I've Learned from Watching My Mom and Dad

I've learned a lot from watching my Mom and Dad's marriage. It's led me to know what I want to look for in a marriage, eventually, when I'm older, if I ever DO get married. Their marriage helps me know what a marriage is really about, and I couldn't thank them more for that.

You see, a lot of girls my age dream about marrying the perfect guy. Living in the perfect house. Having a lot of money and clothes and having a happy family and good, stable jobs. I'm not saying that that's a bad thing, but I think it's a bit unrealistic. It's not impossible, I suppose (other than the perfect guy, thing. Nobody's perfect! *Hannah Montana song now stuck in my head forever*), but in order to have all those things, you need to have a few others.

So, here's what I want for my future, if I ever get married.

Jesus. Not every marriage has Jesus, and a lot of them do okay without Him. But it's a lot harder, I think. Without Jesus, who do you have as your role …

Grace's Corner of the World: Why I Don't Write About MK Life

For those of you who don’t know, I am an MK (missionary kid). People tend to enjoy reading my posts about my life as a missionary, and are confused when I don’t write about that. After all – I’m a missionary! Why shouldn’t I write about my thrilling life living in a tropical climate spreading the word of Jesus? There’s only one answer for that, really: It’s not thrilling. Believe it or not, my life is no more exciting than yours. I spend my days doing school and trying not to die of the heat. Don’t believe me? I’ll give you a quick run-down of my day today. 1.Manage to get out of my bed and go downstairs; hopefully pretend to be awake enough to eat breakfast 2.Eat cereal and do devotions with family 3.Do some school 4.Take a nap 5.Do more school 6.Eat lunch 7.More school 8.Hide in my room some Wasn’t that just exciting? The thrilling life of an MK, right? Honestly, I’m here because God told me to come and support Dad as he spreads God’s word. I’m not doing any “missionarying,” I’m hanging out wi…

The Do's and Don'ts of Talking to MKs

When I returned to the States and talked to people living there, I discovered that people seemed very interested in what my family and I are doing, but they didn’t know what to ask so that they could figure out more about us. I’ve also learned that there are a few questions that should be avoided and others that I really enjoy answering. I thought I’d list some of them off for you so that you could know what to look out for, and what questions might be good conversation starters!
Don’t . . .
Ask me how it feels to be “back home.” I don’t even know how to answer this question. I have lived in Thailand for a little over two years now. Some of the toughest things that I have ever been through happened in this beautiful country. I have a lot of friends here. My house is here, and my family is here. So when you ask “How does it feel to be back home?” it can make me both confused and annoyed. Questions spin through my head, such as, “Um . . . I don’t know if I even am home,” and “Goodness, do…
