I'm feeling like God is telling me that I need a challenge. I need to get out of my comfort zone and try something I've never tried before - something I am fairly confident I CANNOT do without God's strength, support, and miraculous ways.
So, in February 2010, I'm gonna be Gumby:
Yup - I expect to be especially stretched in my writing this month. I am trying something I have thought about several times, but never had the guts to try.
Now, for you NaNoWriMo folks, this is probably a piece of cake. But I'm not like that. Remember me? Slow and steady wins the race? Remember the turtle? Write in those spare minutes?
I am fairly confident that I will NOT be able to write an average of 1,250 words a day in five- and ten-minute increments. I am going to have to MAKE TIME to buckle down and make some REAL progress on my novel.
Praise the Lord, I am not alone. A few of my dear friends will be joining me in this little project (including a BFF, who shall remain nameless unless she wishes to share, who is probably as nervous about it as I am). We will be cheering each other on throughout the month, using a wet noodle when necessary.
If any of you would like to participate, you are, of course, more than welcome. I'm hoping to have a word count meter on my blog - though I'm not sure how often I'll be able to update. I'll certainly appreciate the encouragement!
Looking forward to seeing what God accomplishes through this--and hoping that I will stretch - but will NOT turn green! ;)
Paving Rough Roads With God's Presence
