I’m really excited for today’s post! Just this morning my family and I were discussing the questions I’m answering below and it was fun to see how they answered.
However, before I dive into how I react to the unknown, let me share about the book I’m spotlighting too!
Check out R.J. Metcalf’s new release, Void Born, a series that makes you thankful for crock pots and early kiddo bedtimes. 😉
About the Book
The bloodstone has been stolen.
Although the barrier remains, its stability is at risk. And if it falls, all of southern Terrene will be forfeit.
After the tragedies in Doldra, the valiant crew of the Sapphirestruggles to regain their footing. Jade returns to Lucrum with the escort of Prince Weston only to find herself cornered by Lord Everett’s political maneuvering. With her freedom at stake, Jade is faced with a choice: give up her dreams for the future, or watch as those closest to her die.
Ben hunts down Victor and his mysterious Void Born with the help of Finn and his granddaughter Raine. The longer they are together, the harder Ben falls for the enigmatic swordswoman. But mad sages and ruthless assassins aren’t all he needs to fear–if Ben’s friends find out his secret, he could lose everything.
With Terrene at stake, they cannot lose sight of their goals.
Even with the past and the future pulling at them.
1.) What is one time you’ve been faced with the unknown? What happened?
I definitely feel like I’m entering a little bit of a season of unknown with our family expecting our third child (who will be our first girl) and self-publishing my nonfiction book next year. In many ways it’s very surreal and usually busy myself with day-to-day things because sometimes I might otherwise panic. LOL! (No, I’m not a control junkie occasionally. Why do you ask? *winks*) Ultimately though, I just keep trusting Jesus and thank Him for friends who are willing to answer my questions and that He is always with me. 🙂
2.) Would you rather stay in a familiar place, or explore somewhere new? Why?
This is such a tough one! I really want to say both, but I think in actuality, I’m more of let’s-stay-in-the-same-place-because-it’s-what-I-know. Haha! I do like to be bold and adventurous sometimes, but otherwise I’m mainly a person of habit. I order the same thing when going to restaurants, eat almost the same thing every morning, and like to shop at the same places.
3.) If you could travel to just one place in an airship, where would it be?
Ahh, another tough one! At first, I was going to say Japan or Cambodia (where my husband is from), but then I thought of the long windy ride there and it made me hesitate. I do think it would be super exciting to travel around the United States, visiting friends, with an ending point in Washington or California to visit my husband’s family. However, I REALLY want to stop and visit all my friends along the way. 😉
4.) Are you more fond of being on the ground or being up in the air? (Or under?)
Definitely being on ground, even though I’ve only flown once. It wasn’t a bad experience, but I’m perfectly comfortable being an above land dweller. (I’ve read too many stories about underground cities and something going wrong, so above for sure.)
5.) Who do you have to take with you when you travel into the unknown? Why?
My husband! He’s my other half and helps keep me calm in places I feel lost or don’t know. I would also say my kiddos too because they bring all the hugs to make me feel better and it’s comforting to know were altogether into any unknown place we go. <3
About R.J. Metcalf
During the day, Becky is a stay at home mom of two active little boys. When she has ‘free time’, she enjoys reading, writing, baking and sewing.
After many years of creative writing classes, writing fanfiction drabbles and daydreaming, it was high time to start writing her husband Mike’s story. She dove into the world of Terrene and hasn’t looked back—except for when she runs out of dark chocolate.
Any free time not spent in Terrene is typically expended on hosting dinner and game nights, running amok with the two little monkeys or watching nerdy movies with Mike.
