The Voice of the Lord
So, as the Holy Spirit says: "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts . . ."
I begin writing my novel in the summer of 2007. And inexplicable do-or-die, now-or-never urge possesses me. I wind up with thirteen chapters, and am pleased with the story's direction by the time school starts up again. Too busy and distracted by teaching, I reluctantly shelve my novel until the following summer.
It takes two more summers to complete. And, the most amazing thing about this whole process? I am certain, beyond a shadow of a doubt that God, through His Holy Spirit, has sat right next to me the entire time. Because, as odd as it may sound, I don't write the book.
It writes itself.
And, I know it's good. Worthy of readership. Yet, every agent I seek out is not interested in representing me. No publisher takes the bait.
Rejections take their toll . . .
At the gracious invitation of my brother in Christ, Dusty Rayburn, I am posting on his blog, Devoted Conversations today. I do hope you will visit and become a fan of Dusty's writing. Thank you, Dusty, for this opportunity to share with your audience. God bless always!
