|Delays on the Road to Writing|
But, God is good!
I've come to terms with the fact of my lack of being able to write, and I wasn't sure...going into the
job...that I would have any time to write anytime in the future (well, at least into next year). Now, after being in the job for 4 weeks, I can see that eventually (and I do mean probably sometime in the first quarter of next year) that I will have more time to write than when I was in my previous job. Granted, this all assumes that I'm full court press on mastering everything until that time. The point is, God has shown me (once again) that although he has called me to write, it won't be right now but it WILL be at some point.
So, for those of you that find yourselves in a primary job that is not being a writer, pray and hold the Faith that God will open the door for that activity to happen (it just may not be sooner than later). What I can do right now (even with the new job) is spend my "spare" time reading! Reading fiction, books on writing, etc...so that when the time comes to write again, I have more knowledge about the craft of writing filed away in my writing toolbox.
My writing life isn't down and out, just being directed into more of a research mode...for now :)
