It’s Friday – another morning for a coffee break in the Video Café! I’m pleased to welcome sweet author friend Becky Wade to the cafe today. (Stick around after our coffee break for our usual #Giveaway…)
If you’re new to the Video Café, Click HERE to see what it’s all about. But if you’ve been here before, you know how it works. Grab a steamy mug — let’s chat with Becky!
BONJOUR Becky — Welcome to the Café! We are so glad you’ve joined us on this lovely May Friday! As with all of our chats, we love to know the basics… So, where’s your cafe and just what are you drinking today?
One thing you said went straight to my heart: in the British tradition. (Yay! We are kindred spirits, my amiable friend.) And the fact that we both like to sneak away from the busy family time in our “hub” (aka – kitchen, living room etc.) and sneak off to write in a quiet coffee shop corner… it makes me smile that we both do that!
We always like to share a short devotional time together in the cafe. Can you tell us what Scripture is really ministering to you today, and why?
Oh, my joy! I am verse mapping through the same book right now — so loving Romans. The passage you read from The Message translation was so beautiful (and timely, I think, for this time of year). As moms, sisters in Christ, friends… it can be a tough battle to fight comparison. I love that you’re talking so candidly about it.
We’re readers here too, Becky. We love the opportunity to talk with authors one-on-one about their latest releases. Can you share the heart behind Her One and Only with us — and maybe give us a sneaky-peek at what’s next for you?
Aaaaahhh! A sassy, girl body guard character… we love it. So fun! We can’t wait to get to know Drew and Gray, and follow their story.
One of the things we love here in the cafe is that we get real about this writing life. What’s it like for you? Are there any aspects of writing that can be difficult?
Anyone else furiously nodding through that entire clip? Whether we’re all writers here or not, the first part of a new journey can be scary, exciting, tough to understand, with all the feels that we experience along the way. (Though, I admit that I write very out of sequence, so I usually write the last chapter of a novel in the first quarter of my “fingers to keyboard” time. Ha ha! I think I just confused myself!)
Last thing… We love books, coffee, your writing, and Scripture here. However, we also love to EAT. (At least I do.) Please share your super-secret-go-to-favorite-of-all-time writing snack with us? (We need recommendations!)
YES!!!!!!! We knew we loved you. Now, even more, Ms. Chocolate!
Thanks for stopping by today. It was a pleasure — and I’ll hug you in person at the ACFW conference to say how much we’ve enjoyed our time with you. Xoxo — and chocolate!
