Apprentice

My mission for the writing posts is to encourage you to keep going. The object is to never stop even when it seems you’re stuck. Kinda like driving in sand.

When your wheels are spinning, don’t just sit there flooring the accelerator. Stop. Think. Turn the steering wheel in a different direction and ease forward.

You can do this by laying aside your current work. Write a short piece that has nothing to do with your WIP. Give yourself the freedom to write whatever comes to mind.

If that doesn’t get the wheels moving, go do something else for a couple of days. When you’ve energized your battery, come back and begin again.

The following meme is meant to encourage you. But I’m not sure if you’ll go away with a cup of hope or a bucket load of angst. LOL!

Either way, write on!

Never Give Up

Life has a way of interrupting our plans. There are days we feel like giving up. Tired, we stop struggling momentarily. No matter how many times we move the pieces, we can’t seem to find a solution to our problem.

Have you ever been there?

Here’s the thing.

Life happens.

The truth contained in those two words is we’ll never be without problems. So, we must find a way around, or through, whatever is keeping us from completing our tasks.

Another truth is we can make plans, but it is God Who directs our steps. If He chooses a detour along the way, then He’ll guide us back to our unfinished tasks and give us the courage to begin again.

Our goal is to trust Him and His timing.

Take courage, my friend. It will all work out in the end if we don’t give up.

Happy writing.
