I know I made a vow to myself to blog more often, but here I am in the midst of a new project, Shades of Hope, a young adult Christian Novel, dealing with overcoming not only disability, but other issues as well, more painful than even a disability, because I felt the good Lord calling me to do this.
I may not have been blogging as often as I should, but I have been writing, and have nearly sixty pages on Shades of Hope, and am passionate about what I am writing about, that in itself is important right?
I try to write at least two thousand words a day, sometimes more, and sometimes less, but I generally try to write a chapter, and two thousand words I feel is a good chapter amount for a young adult book, that is dealing with as many painful subject matters as Shades of Hope, because I do not want to spend to long focusing on one thing, nor do I want to spend two little times.
As a Christian Writer, I try to make sure I write nothing that would allow others to question my faith, but I do tend to deal with painful subjects, some may say are even taboo, but in a way that shows the light of the Lord, shinning in the end. I try to teach my Characters a lesson, and show them the importance of leaning on Christ, but I am not perfect, and I do have my faults. I may not be the greatest writer but I think of myself as a good writer, not because of anything I do, but because the Lord so often moves my pen.
