Today has been fun. I've been online trying to tap various resources to get ahead in my game a bit here- something I don't have the time to do on a school day. (Being home today makes me realize how much I love being home and would love to be doing this on a regular basis and just spend my days writing!) There's a wealth of people and information out there- it's wonderful to have it so readily available at the touch of a laptop.
I'm trying to get out of this small rut I'm stuck in. And today has helped push me a bit further along in my journey by getting some good advice by experienced folk who have once been where I am, and have taken their journey road a lot further. They've been encouraging and given me some solid stuff with which to work, and I now see some more steps I can take to proceed. For that, I am thankful.
I think what I need now is time. Well, let's face it, I'm not going to GET any more time, but what I need to do now is MAKE time - carve it out of my schedule- to work on this. That's do-able. I feel like I have enough things to work with - ideas, titles, resource books, how to books, helpful websites. But when push comes to shove, if I want this for me (if God wants this for me) I'm the one who's going to have to put pencil to paper and make the words come out.
I feel more motivated now than I did this morning, I have more direction than I did this morning, and I can see a little further up the road. So all in all, it's been a good day.
