This is my spot today, and every day, while I'm back to work on my writing project here in Wyoming.
With coffee, water, Bible, computer, kleenex and some cookies to fortify me, I type and delete, type and delete for hours on end.
It helps to have something pretty to look out at now and then as I think and think and think about how to word something so that it communicates what I really want to say.
Many have asked what I'm writing about. That's a long story! While I'm not ready to share the details yet, I will say that writing it is a tremendous amount of work and truly a genuine privilege at the same time.
I really love this process and am energized by the Lord day after day to get it done.
My body and mind feel the strain of sitting here hour after hour though, composing thoughts into words with the hope that someday this will result in a book that brings blessing and encouragement to others.
Please pray for me! I would so love to have the first draft finished before we leave in February. I won't have another chance to work on writing for several more months, thus the desire to finish the initial draft in these next weeks.
My guess is that I'm about forty pages away from being finished, but honestly, it feels like the end will never come.
However, I know I'm on assignment from the Lord and I will persevere!
You can see why I write with my back to that view...I'd be completely distracted if I sat facing towards it day after day!
While I'd really like to just sit gazing out at the beauty here, I'm going to press on and continue to write, trusting the Lord to give me the words to say that communicate my heart, and the story He's given me to tell.
