****Repost*** February 2018
As most of you know I’m working, very slowly albeit, a project that I hope will turn into a book one day down the road.
I decided to search through old posts about my writing and I came across this from about 3 years ago.
I get distracted very easily as you can tell from my title….(if you haven’t seen the movie “Up” I encourage you to. It’s such a cute movie. )
Writing takes time. I’m slowly, (very slowly….okay like turtle slow….) figuring out what should be included and what shouldn’t. This “book” is going to force me to unlock many memories that I really rather not get into BUT…..BUT…it’s essential. It has to be done. If I’m going to write a book on the stigma surrounding mental illness and the church I will have to face my demons from many, many years ago….
As I read this post from 3 years ago…I feel like I have come a long way in my writing. At least I think I have.
So….I will just keep on writing…writing is what I strongly feel is my “gift.” And I don’t want to squander that gift.
Periodically, would you all stop by and ask how the writing is going? I feel that will keep me motivated.
Just Keep Writing…..
The inspiration for my writing is slowly but surely returning. I’m still having bouts of writer’s block but I just write through it. 🙂
Just keep writing, Just keep writing…. 🙂
I’ve been going to a local coffee shop and the words have slowly been coming to me.
I’ve been praying that the Lord will give me the right words to write. I want my writing to glorify Him and Him alone.
I just love to write.
So here I am, at my local coffee shop, once again, getting ready to pound out some writing in my lovely Google Docs. I’m writing whatever pops in my head and later I’ll go back and edit and do some copy and pasting, lol.
The Lord brought this verse to my attention the other day:
Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin….
I may feel discouraged that my writing is not taking off like I wish it would but this verse reminds me that the Lord rejoices in the fact that I’m working on it! I’m slowly beginning the process and that makes Him happy. 🙂
What hobbies do you have that just make you extremely happy when you’re doing it?
