I have learned so much about myself during this time of editing. I’ve learned that I’m okay with my imperfections. I’m okay with the suggestions Lauren (my editor) has made. I’ve come to trust her. I'm okay with not making some changes (I was very unsure of myself).
When I write, I wait. I wait for inspiration. I sit in front of computer and I pray. That’s how I wrote my book. I had an idea – just a beginning and an ending. The middle was very fuzzy. So I waited and the inspiration flowed. I’m grateful for all that God breathed into me.
So when editing my words, I continue to ask Him for His inspiration. I’ve learned that it’s where I’m most comfortable – in His hands.
I’m hopeful that the changes being made will make the story sharper. I’m excited by this process. I’ve learned that if I’m willing not to hold on too tightly to what I have, then I will gain more than expected.
I can’t wait for the next step – graphic design.
Thank you all for your support.
