Today's Insight on a Healthy Diet:
Yesterday I learned that grilling squash doesn't make it taste any better. So take heed, and spare yourselves from this particular torture!
As frustrating and slow as the process of building a writing career is, I'm excited this year. I have long been frustrated at how long it took to research, write, and revise a manuscript. I've mentioned here recently that I just finished my 2nd manuscript (first draft) in a record 15 months.
I've lost track of the number of times I complained to God, "Why, why, why does this whole process take so long? Why do I have to fight and slog to find time to write even one book?"
I can't claim to understand His answer but I can tell you this. I feel my writing career has kicked into the next gear in 2012. The reason? I am finally in a position to juggle my writing projects.
Which means that this year, for the first time EVER, I will be in a position to be writing one project and editing another.
I've never had that opportunity before.
That may sound silly to someone else, but it is a monumental confidence booster to me. And it reminds me of why God has paced my life the way He has. I was very impatient most of the time, but He knew I needed those years of slow crawling and slow progress to prepare myself to take the next step--the one I'm living out right now. This year.
I can't wait to see what else He is going to do in my life!
