Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
Have you ever "thought" you knew where you were going, only to realize you might be driving in the direction? How much time, money, and thought did you invest in your "dream" or "notion" before you realized ~ "I'm not sure this is the route I want to take."
For the past month I have taken a children's book writing class with fifteen other dedicated and creative writers. Some of the faces are familiar while others are new for this class ~ not only do they write, but they also illustrate their own writing. With my first adult non-fiction in consideration for publication with a few different publishing houses, I decided to venture and learn how to write a children's book.
Oh brother! I feel as if I am not only going in the wrong direction but doing the direction on a one-way street. I have an idea for a book - one written to help young children understand kidnapping BUT I can't seem to put words (that a child or an adult for that matter) on paper or in my computer.
I have until Midnight on Thursday to submit a children's book/story to my professor. I generally work well under pressure yet I'm not even sure where to start. My motivation to write is pure and full of good intention but a storyline hasn't developed. Am I not meant to write for children? Is it that I'm still adjusting to my back-to-school schedule? Am I overthinking it?
I do have a few blogs near to my heart with a message I believe God gave me - I would rather write those than the children's book this week? Is that the reason - the children's book isn't for God first? Hmmm...
I pray to hear from the publisher soon and start to speak and share Heidi's story, my story, and the way God has worked through both.
