I have always felt God wants to use me in the media of writing. I also know he wants to use my story. The most obvious way is to write my story. As I’ve stated in a previous blog, I just can’t seem to get started. I received prayer on Sunday morning and the person who prayed for me, a wonderful woman, felt 8 months was significant. She asked me if it meant anything. At first I had no idea what that might mean, but then I realized the Writer’s Digest Competition is in May. I’ve entered it a couple times. The first time I entered it, I received an honorable mention. The second time, I just threw something together and it showed as I didn’t win anything.
So, instead of trying to put together my whole life on “paper” and consider how it might glorify God, I’ve decided to take a segment and do that segment really well and then submit it to the Writer’s Digest Competition. If I gets a good result, I can move on to another segment.
I wish you well.
Great idea Kim, and a wonderful way to get started. Love what I’ve read so far, so I’m anticipating good things to come.
Thank you! I hope so. I’ve been kind of frustrated about it all and finding the time with everything starting back up. This will give me plenty of time to do one segment of my life. As long as I do a little bit every week. I know time can slip away from me.
