Okay, so the title isn't perfect.
Writing has been a part of my life since I could type on our family's old Word Processor, and I seriously began the writing life in July of last year. But this week is different.
I get to write full-time this week. I feel as though God is giving me a glimpse of what this endeavor could look like. And it's incredible.
I woke up, did a little yoga (that's right, she exercised!), finished some chores, had a nourishing quiet time while I ate breakfast, and then sat down to critique, edit, and write for a whole day!
I don't take this gift lightly. Nor do I think it's a perfect life, free of frustrations, crazy schedules, writer's blocks, rejections, etc. I am grateful, nonetheless.
My goal is to power through a chunk of An Unwavering Devotion, formerly called Steadfast, so I can finish the first polished draft by the next time our newly formed, yet to be named, writer's group meets on July 19. So I need to be diligent this week.
And what do I have to show for my day? A revised Plot Skeleton (courtesy of Angela Hunt; does anyone else feel like these are getting thrown out left and right?), an updated outline, continued background on two new characters, a new title, and the editing of five chapters. Wow!
I could get used to this....
