#Writing without a #reader in mind can be self-indulgent. Writing for a reader is both generous and a discipline.
I have also written a blog called 'How to Make Readers Part of Your Success When You Launch Your Book'
“Long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure he took in planning this!) He wanted us to enter into the celebration of his lavish gift-giving by the hand of his beloved Son.”
How deep the Father’s love for us... ❤️ #liveloved

What’s your self-care plan for today?
Still in awe of all the beautiful women who came out yesterday for the last outdoor writing retreat of the year. Thank you, thank you so much for sharing space with me! I hope to see you at the next one! More photos and videos to come. And, if you’re around tonight, I’ll be at the Harvest Moon Beach Fire at the Alpine Boat Basin at the Palisades Interstate Park. 🔥 🙌🏽🌿✍🏽
While they tell me that when you are alone at 2am, you get answers you have been looking for, I feel that it is actually the time of all questions and not answers. The question of existence and of purpose.
The truth, I believe, is that the answer is there when you are on a call with a friend who fails to notice you stuttering while talking. When you are ignored by your colleagues discussing about drinks after work. When you go out with someone who doesn't want to know if you are walking behind or ahead. When you kiss your partner goodnight and get no response.
The truth, I believe, is when you are alone in your room at night, you have time to open the book, and read all those questions and ask yourself about things you want and things you don't, of what you are becoming and what you wanted to. You have time to question if tomorrow you'd be asking yourself the same questions.
While they tell me that there is an answer to every question, I feel that the questions are mostly the answers, but we are too afraid to accept them because we would rather choose to live with questions than answers.
