As you may know, I’m writing a novel this month. 30 days. 50,000 words. I did it last year. Whoop. And that novel releases with WhiteFire Publishing in February.
I’d thought about writing a post about how to write a novel in 30 days. But there are plenty of those out there. I thought I’d take the how to FAIL at it.
Avoid these traps, my friends. As a matter of fact, avoid these traps in just about every aspect of your lives.
Let me tell you something. Come close. This is important.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made. In the very image of the Father who dearly loves you. He’s given you abilities to enrich the lives of others and give glory to Him. Don’t let anything get in the way of what He’s given you to do.
You. Are. A gift to this world. Not THE gift, though. But you can be a blessing. Believe it. And live it.
I know you can.
What about you? What are some goals in your life? What keeps you from them? What helps you achieve? I love hearing what you have to say!
