FMF: Writer

I have always had a dream, a secret desire, to write a book. I am not even really sure what it would focus on. I have so many different things I would love to write about. Every once in a while I feel a little nudge, from the Lord I think, that I should give it a shot. But I must admit, I'm scared. I'm clueless. I'm afraid. Afraid of what though? [...]
I really don't know. Maybe that I would not have the write grammar or wording. Maybe that after all the work I put into it that I could not get it published. I have tried my hand at like half a dozen (not exaggerating!)  different direct sales companies with no success. Maybe writing a book would end the same way.

Maybe that is why I like blogging so much. I love to write! I love to share what is on my heart and mind. I love to encourage others. I love to inspire others. At least with a blog it's free (thank you blogger!) and I can write and leave it out there on the world wide web and if it gets read great, and if not, well that is okay too. But truthfully I know that isn't entirely true. If it was I would not check my page views everyday to see how many people are stopping by. Yes maybe one day. Maybe one day I will be a "published" writer. But for now, I'm am just happy I am a writer here!

  1. I think blogging is a great writing training ground and I find the more I write, the better I get. Blogging gives us chance to learn our craft, to learn to use words to get our meaning across. It even gives us chance and opportunity to improve our spelling and grammar. Keep reading, keep writing and keep dreaming.

  2. I am in the same boat. I love writing for me. Though it is nice to have a few comments just so I know that people are reading and enjoying.
