Finished the first draft of a new book called, Grace. It was a year in my mind - constantly altering, but when I put it into my computer, I found myself absolutely driven to write it. I believe the Holy Spirit gave me the determination to complete it, as well as the message. It took only three-plus weeks to write it. Of course, nothing else got done. My patient husband cooked and washed the clothes, (the dust waited) until I put the final words down.
Grace is about a young woman who finds herself pregnant. She expects to terminate the pregnancy until a friend from law school introduces her to his family and speaks to her of Christ. It's a difficult journey and the book is written in the first person. There's humor mixed with tears.
I want to see this in paper and I will personally give copies to Pregnancy Care Centers in our area - and beyond. If it saves one life... Praise be to God!
Welcome to my blog. I hope you will return often for that second cup.
Writing has become more than a way to make lists or keep in touch with friends. It is a vital part of who I am. For the past few years I've been writing essays, devotionals, a memoir, and several novels. I invite you to join me on this site so we can explore ways together to improve our writings. Words can be beautiful or they can be hurtful - even devastating. The well-placed word or phrase, the choice metaphor, a fresh perspective - each can add to the reader's participation in sharing the thoughts of the writer. I invite anyone who wants to improve their work or even if you have never attempted writing beyond a grocery list to return often. Feel free to add your thoughts. There are no grades given - no critics to deter you. We do this as friends - chatting over their second cup of coffee. (or tea, if you prefer.)
