I worked for an hour or more last night on my book while at my parents. I usually write at home but I've come to realize something - when I'm stuck and having a little "writer's block" or "avoidance", I can overcome the block and deal with what is keeping me from my writing if I take all my stuff to my parent's house.
I'm sure there are many reasons - it is where I grew up, it is where I have the most memories of Heidi or even the mere fact, "It's my mom and dad's house and I can deal with anything with them sitting there!" Mom talked me through a couple spots I wasn't sure of and asked questions where needed. Wow...once we did that - I was able to organize my thoughts and piles of notes and originals and start writing.
I wish I could tell you I did so much writing I had finished another revised chapter yet that isn't what happened. While laying on the bed talking to my mom and working on my writing - I fell asleep! Head down, spiral notebook marks on my forehead and hand. 3 ring binder mark on the other hand. Out cold - sweet sleep! I slept solid - makes me wonder if it was the book keeping me awake lately? After Ed and Mary woke me from slumber in the dining room - we came home and I went to bed. I slept wonderfully!
:) Thank you Jesus!
I had a realization while typing this message to you all - if I relied on and trusted my heavenly Father like I do my earthly parents - I could have dealt with my writer's block at home. I would still need my parents to help me sift through the details and such - yet God gave us the parents we have and He gave us to them.
I'm glad I have a relationship with my parents that is open, trusting and helpful - WHENEVER I need them! Our Lord Jesus Christ is the same - yesterday, today and forever! He is ALWAYS there for us - we need only ask. Last night was good - I faced some difficult questions, cured a writer's block with a morning epiphany - God was waiting for me
