Thank you for all the support I’ve received from my friends on social media, at work, and in my Bible study. Although I’m the one who wrote the book, my book would not go anywhere if it wasn’t for your encouragement and guidance. Ultimately, to God be the glory!
To update my followers on my blog, I just submitted my book to a literary agent. This is the first step on having my novel published. I should be hearing back from them within eight weeks. Until then…I’m going to make the best of my time.
What are your thoughts on these activities that I can do in eight weeks?
- Couch to 5K: I’ve heard about this app from a few people, but my friend just told me today that I can train my body to run a 5K in just eight weeks. Challenge accepted?
- Read: I read for entertainment, but I’d like to develop the art of writing book reviews. What books do you recommend?
- Blog: This is a definite. I’m going to continue Marriage Monday, Wisdom Wednesday, and Throwback Thursday. What other topics would you like me to discuss?
- Go outside: I’m inside eight hours a day, five days a week. I need to spend more time outside. My husband and I just bought a pass for the beach that works on state parks as well. Do you have any favorite outdoor activities?
Above all, I’m going to pray and entrust my time to God. No matter what I do, my goal is to give Him glory for using my dream of writing a book as part of His plan for the world. I look forward to how He will grow and shape this book, as well as my passion for writing, into a piece of art that will further His kingdom.
I’ll be writing several updates about my book as well, such as questions I’ve heard regarding it, my motivation for writing it, and the journey of my story. If you have any questions, advice, or comments about my journey, feel free to comment below or message me on any of my social media sites. (As you can see, I’d really like to be blogging more, so if there’s anything you’d like me to write about, let me know!).
Thank you again for all of your support and prayers! Stay tuned for Marriage Monday’s post on why those you love hurt you the most.
