A Writer in the Rough

I used to be bored with books and was a terrible reader. But then I experienced a well-written story, and it changed my world.
 
I fought the internal nudge for years to take a swing at writing. Who was I to strike out to be … an author? Nonsense!
 
But the nudge persisted.
 
After years of trying, failing–and failing miserably–I continued on. And I’m ever so thankful that I did.
 
Look at me … a Selah finalist. Selah’s a nationally recognized award offered to books and articles within Christian publishing that are considered excellent within their genre.
 
Oh friend, don’t ignore that nudge you’re getting. It may take time, but it will pay off.
