Sister Juanita Maria had taken on the job of establishing her own religious order, which incorporated all the best aspects of Catholicism and Buddhism.
Her habit was modelled on both religions the colourful orange of the Buddhists and the austere brown of the very religious sisters of the Holy Mary Mother of the Christ.
What set her order of nuns apart from other orders of nuns was her adoption of Saint Keith Kreates as her spiritual mentor.
Saint Keith Kreates was one of the least known of the churches saints having recently been canonised after several within the blogging community had contributed their miraculous recovery from writers block to Saint Keith’s intervention.
The fact that Keith was still alive and performing miracles made his elevation to the ranks of the churches saints all the more fascinating.
Sister Juanita Maria was setting up her order of nuns to assist the poor writers of this world and from her own observation there were enough to keep her in business for the rest of eternity.
Every morning she would rise from her bed of shredded Complete Shakespearean works and after dressing and uttering her morning mantra of “ I will write today, just one word then two” she would make her way to the chapel, which in the early stages was a small sun room at the back of her even smaller house.
There she would prayer for sinners and writers, sometimes unable to distinguish between the two before making herself a hearty breakfast nourished with some vigorous reading of Jane Austen whose writing always inspired to try harder and write succinctly.
But today Sister Juanita Maria was out in the community showing off her new habit, her Saint Keith Kreates hat, she’d written his name on the side herself, and was on her way to the towns Internet café where she knew the down and out of the writing community could be found.
So with the wind blowing her habit this way and that, she was determined that today would be a good day and that maybe Lennie the wino would see the wisdom of editing his work to remove the expletives he used, quite cleverly she had to admit, from every second word he wrote.
