About a week ago, I signed up with Thomas Nelson to get free books to review on my blog site. (Check it out--it's a neat way to see new products!)
Within days, they sent my first choice. No, I'm not ready to review it yet--I don't read that fast--but a statement in the opening chapter of Think and Make it Happen by Dr. Augustus Cury hit me.
He said there are two ways to keep warm in life--build a fire with dry wood or plant seeds that will provide wood for a lifetime. He asks which do we prefer. Of course, every reader is going to have their own take on this.
As always, I thought how this statement relates to my plans as a writer. Am I building a quick fire and writing a book just to write a book or am I planting a forest--writing a book that will make a difference for more readers than just me?
I'm hoping to plant seeds. How about you?
