So, I’ve started going over my novel again after about a month of inactivity. It’s one of my summer goals to finish up the editing.
Admittedly, I did not want to do this. Thoughts kept running through my mind of, “Is this really my calling? Why am I wasting my time again? Maybe I should just give up…”
But you know me. Giving up is not an option and I don’t like to lose so I began. I made little changes here and there that I actually liked. And after about 2 hours of working on my first chapter, I ended the session with a bit of a high, thinking, “Okay, so this is better.”
And encouragement to continue in this endeavor.
I am also learning stuff about writing from my kids homeschool curriculum. Where was this stuff when I was a kid? I continually think my education was severely deprived or at least hindered when I see what my 8 year old and 7 year old are learning. And at their age!
They are learning stuff I don’t even know! In a way it makes me jealous, gives me incredible hope for them, and inspires me that you can teach an old dog new tricks (our saying for the week we are learning!).
It feels good to be back on track again. I just pray this continues for the immediate future, long enough to finish this project and start seeking an agent for it.
Yet most importantly I feel continually blessed by God every day of my life. I know no matter what happens He is there, always, by my side, cheering me on and holding me up. Forever.

Your post was the first thing I read today and I am so blessed by it. I encourage you to press on with your work. I look forward to hearing from you throughout the summer! God bless you!
you continue with where God leads you. This obvious is something that’s very close to your heart and God must have laid it on you at some point. and maybe you can leave tips on the process you go through writing? i have an idea for a book but don’t even know where to begin.
It’s nice to hear from you again. Now that I know what you look like, I will feel much closer to you
when I get your next blog.
Good luck with your book, don’t rush it. It will be a world class reader anyway.
Enjoy your vacation from BSF with your hubby and children,
God bless you.
Good for you to recognize that God will see you through as you progress in His name.
YOU THINK TOO MUCH, LET GO LET GOD, HE WILL DIRECT YOUR PATH IF IT ALIGNS WITH HIS WILL, IF NOT HE KNOWS WHATS BEST FOR YOU, LIKE ANY GREAT PARENT HE IS GOING TO GIVE YOU WHAT U NEED, NOT EVERYTHING U WANT. HIS WAYS R PERFECT, HIS TIMING IS PERFECT. HE MADE US IN HIS IMAGE, AND WE R SET APART FOR HIM. WALK IN THE SPIRIT, SHHHH. LISTEN… HE SPEAKS SOFTLY, YOU R A BLESSING, YOU R A BLESSING TO OTHERS, QUIET YOUR MIND, JUST LISTEN,
How great to see your post and know that God is moving through You. Rest in Him as you position yourself for greatness.
