When you read this post I will be at the Florida Christian Writers Conference with these wonderful ladies, the Kindred Heart Writers.
I was so pushed for time, uh, I think the word is procrastination, that I my WIP (work in progress) was not progressing. I wrote a carefully crafted email to my freinds.....well can you say, whinning....that I may not be ready to hand anything in for editors to "look see."
Their kind hearts, forgave my delinquency and said to just go and learn, listen and enjoy. I breathed a sigh of relief, feeling much better. That day after work, it dawned on me why my WIP was out of sync. I rewrote, and now I have something to submit. YEAH.
"The LORD preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me. Return to your rest, O my soul, for the LORD has dealt bountifully with you." Psalms 116:6-7
Why is it when I struggle so, and then finally give up and rest a while, things become clearer? Is it my frustration that clouds my vision, or is it I want to do things my way? Probably both. When will I learn to work and rest?
Do you find that in your life?
Here's hoping an editor likes my vision.
