Before we begin, I’d like to apologize for not posting last week. There were several planning events and tasks to accomplish, and with what little time I had to myself I used to rest. That being said, I’d like to update you all to a couple of things I’ve decided on recently, one of which I’m still praying about.
First is the schedule of the blog. Since creating it, I’ve tried to keep a 3-post-per-week goal: a post published every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. With some recent changes to my personal life, I’ve come to realize I can’t keep a 3-post goal. Instead, I’m dropping down to two a week. After giving it some thought, Thursday seemed to be the logical choice to let go. Thus, this will be my last Thursday post, at least for a while.
Secondly, I’ve been praying about this coming November and I appreciate anyone else willing to pray. November is National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo, for short); it’s a challenge for writers to write a minimum of 50,000 words for a book. (If you would like to know more about the challenge, head over to nanowrimo.org.) I’ve attempted this before and failed, but would like to try again if the Lord is willing to help me. If it isn’t apart of His plan, then may I fail again and return to what He wants me to focus on.
I know it can be done. One of my favorite authors, Melissa Meyer, wrote her beautiful book ‘Cinder’ in a month doing this challenge. Cinderella is my least favorite princess, but a cyborg Cinderella engaged in a space war was too intriguing not to crack open the spine. I’ve been hooked on her writings ever since.
The reason I explain all of this in regards to November is not only to ask for prayers that God’s will be done and I be open to what He wants me to do but to also inform you all that during that month – if I were to tackle the challenge – I will not be blogging. Majority of the free time I typically set aside to blog will be dedicated to the challenge.
Before I end this last Thursday post, I’d like to thank each and everyone of you for being apart of this throughout the year. Your support has helped keep me going and I pray God has been able to use the blog to help you in some way. Thank you for being here. Thank you for taking the time to read when you don’t have to. Most of all, thank you for being you. God bless you all, for I thank Him for you being here today.
