Stepping Out in Faith

 

A fellow blogger is taking a step towards a goal of his: writing his first novel. He will be the first to admit he doesn’t know the first thing about writing a novel. But the words, the story, it’s all in his head and he knows he must get them out. I admire that.

I’ve wanted to be a writer since the 4th grade. We were asked to write a short essay on what we wanted to be when we grew up. I knew right away I wanted to be a writer. I used to write all kinds of short stories about bunnies and other barnyard animals, I’m sure.

But somewhere along the way I let my dream fade away. I still wrote from time to time, poems mostly,  but I never actively sought out how to make a career out of writing.  Writing, which once was a huge passion of mine, sort of dwindled away. And I let it.

I tried to write from time to time but eventually writer’s block kicked in and I let it stay.

Until now. I’m refusing to let it stay any longer. I’m dusting off the cobwebs of ideas in my head and am FINALLY going to get serious about this writing thing.

Writing is really the only thing I really know how to do semi well. 🙂 🙂

So pray for me? Pray I can find the inspiration needed to take this journey?
