I was moved and excited to read your comments yesterday and see how many of you out there are involved in a new writing venture.
What a blessing to see God working in so many lives. Can you imagine what kind of impact we can make by submitting one small article or our manuscript that we have languished over for months or years?
I know writing is a discouraging business. I have my own drawer full of rejections but many of you can relate when I talk about that awesome feeling we get when we hold in our hands a printed copy of a story we designed with our heart. Best of all, we know someone else out there will feel our words and maybe, hopefully, be struck by something we took the time and effort to put on paper.
It's pretty amazing.
Sometimes I like to imagine that there is one reader out there needing to hear what I have to share but when I am too discouraged or tired or fed up to put it on paper . . . well, you know what I'm about to say. I bet you say it to your self too just as I did last week and just as I will the next time I begin to wallow in my day-to-day wallows.
I'm glad we have weeks and moments when we rest from writing--those valleys sure make the mountaintop veiw so much better.
Are you thinking about writing? Are you thinking about submitting? Try thinking instead about the one individual who's waiting to read your words.
