It Hasn’t Happened…Yet

For years I have dabbled in writing – mostly short stories and attempts at novels. I’ve dreamed of being an author, having my name on the front of a book.  I’m almost 50 years old and it hasn’t happened yet.



Why? Because I doubted myself, I didn’t feel confident in pexels-photo-834897.jpegmy writing capabilities, and I let fear overtake me – fear that I wouldn’t be able to do it, fear that people wouldn’t like what I write, and fear that I just wouldn’t be good at it.

I’ve decided, with encouragement from a few people (particularly my husband), that I’m going to attempt writing again.  My hours at work have been cut back and it’s a great time to seriously get back into it.


I think I need to develop my style, find my voice, and figure out just what I want to work on.  I want to write a novel, but I also thought of maybe writing some Christian articles, devotions or short stories as well. I suppose I could write here, on this blog, to help with my writing. It’s as good as any place to start.  It’s all going to take time, naturally, but I just need to make myself sit down and write.  If I don’t start, it won’t get done.

So, I would appreciate prayers for guidance and direction…and of course to fight against procrastination and writer’s block.
