This weekend I am doing something I have never done before – taking myself on a solo writing retreat. My goal is to finish the first draft of my novel.
Writing this has been an interesting adventure! I have known since day one that God has wanted me to write it, but had no idea why. Christian fiction has been something I had never written before. Honestly, it wasn’t even a genre I read.
However, I followed His prompting and I am almost at the end of the first draft. The most interesting thing about this is that now I am wondering if He wanted me to write this just for myself. Writing it has helped me revisit my own faith journey as well as provide a process of some healing from certain circumstances in my life.
So, would you join me in praying for this writing retreat? It’s easy to get distracted, but I want to stay focused on the work and on the words He will pour through me to the page. Thank You!
