Writing woes and wonders…

IMG_20170324_123923
Hello,
Yes, I am continuing to write my first Christian fiction novel. There is so much to learn while trying to complete this story.  Questions keep filling my thoughts. Should I have an agent? Should I indie publish or try the traditional publishing route? What if my story isn’t good enough? What if no one likes the story? What if? What if? What if?
Then… I remember. PRAY before writing. PRAY for guidance. PRAY for wisdom. A simple prayer asking God for wisdom, discernment and revelation as to what I should write. My husband suggests that I complete the story and then we can concentrate on how to get published.
Peace and comfort come over me when I turn this “writing” over to God. He has a plan.
Thank you to everyone who gives me encouraging words and prayers.
I’ll keep you in the loop as I travel this writing road… and yes, there have been many funny happenings  in the life of the Henderson family.  “It’s Always A Story with The Henderson’s”.
Blessings and giggles,
Mimi

    I hear ya sister! Most of my fears started with “What if…” My best advice, based on nine years of pre-published experience, is to yield everything to God. I tried that–many times over–before it finally sank in. I adapted the phrase, “All good things come to those who wait” to “All good things come to those who yield to the Lord.”

    Your novel is going to be a success. I know because you have asked God for wisdom . Believe you have received and do it all for His glory. Write and shine as you continue to seek His guidance.
    Abundant blessings 😊

    It’s good that you trust God’s hand in your writing. I believe as individuals, we tell a story be it real life or perhaps fiction and no one else can tell or write it the way we do. I believe your work will be beautiful with a story to tell. I also believe that the day we close our eyes from this world, then our opportunity to tell our story is no more. This is your season, your time to tell your story. Just do it💞🌹🌹🌹🌹. Much love and hugs ❤
