My 100th Post

Okay, so it's not a real milestone, but it is for me.  I must say I am rather proud that I haven't given this whole thing up.  I really like it.  I am working on my craft by writing everyday.  I am consistent and when I cannot be consistent, it is usually because I am sick and I let all you guys know.  Considering that I did not even know what a blog was until my writer's conference, I am doing pretty well.

Basically, when I went to my writer's conference, I knew nothing.  I though if you show up with a great idea (of course my book is a great idea) they would just scoop me up and run with it.  I did not know I needed a platform and what a platform was and what was involved in getting a platform.  I learned so much.  So I am going to recommend something to all of you.

What do you want to do?  What is your passion?  What secret is pecking away at your heart?  I say try.  If you have something you have always wanted to do and have not done it, you have to try.  It is tough.  It took me eight years to write my book and I learned so much about writing that I have to re-edit my book before I could submit it to the three sources that said they would look at it at the Conference.  You have to purpose to pursue your passion.  Etch out time in our chaotic lives to work on something we really don't have time for.  It is worth it.  

I come down to this.....  You have all the time in the world to do what God has called you to do.  Period.  God can provide in the supernatural what we cannot fathom.  Life is good when God is in it.  Try your passion.  What have you always wanted to do?  Let me know.

God bless you and yours.

Congrats! 100 posts is a milestone, don't downplay it. I am proud of you my friend. I have been having a thought lately of opening a "dinner by design" franchise. Scary thought in this economy but it's starting to blossom. I will be looking into it to see what is involved and to see if it's even feasible, then will leave it up to God.

Yeah! Congrats. You are an inspiration with your commitment.I have a lot of passions and am continuing to pray that God will direct and show me the one/s He wants me to pursue. That way it will be successful!I would still love to find a way to sit around and scrapbook all day and make as much $$ as I am teaching!
