keep going

Earlier this year, I began to write my first Saving Moses book.  When I’ve written books in the past, I’ve found it to be most helpful to take several days by myself and to totally submerge myself into the writing and then come up for air three or four days later.  It sounds intense and it is 🙂

With my Saving Moses book, however, I’ve been trying a different approach.  Throughout the first few months of this year, I would take one day a week and devote it to writing about my journey along the incredible adventure of growing with Saving Moses.  Truthfully, the one day a week approach isn’t as efficient for me as the totally submersion technique, but at this time in my life, this is how I can make some incremental progress and that’s ok 🙂

The glitch came in April when I had to take a pause for various reasons.  I knew that this pause would be for a few months, but now finally today, I get to pick up where I left off with my writing.  So here’s my point – just because you have a pause on a goal doesn’t mean that you have to give up and quit.  Sometimes a pause can give you some time for reflection, course correction, better focus and greater effectiveness.  Don’t quit!

  1. I cannot tell you just how much I needed to hear this word today. The Lord used you mightily to bless me with this. See I have been working on a book for a very long while. God would have me put it down awhile, then pick it up again. Occasionally the enemy would try to discourage me or throw it up in my face that I had not completed the project yet. However, I trust the Lord’s timing on everything. So as I am now on the home stretch this post truly inspired me, and let me know that it’s okay it wasn’t released last year as projected. Because Lord was not ready for it to come forth until now. Blessings to you, and may continued grace be upon you to complete your first “Saving Moses” book.

    I am choosing to reblog this post, because I think a lot of us need to know that it’s okay to pick back up the project, the book, the screenplay….that we started a good while ago. Hope it blesses you as much as it did me. – Wendy

  3. Hi, I was thinking exactly the same thing as Wendy- my blog readers (both of them! ha ha) need to hear this. And frankly, so did I. We all tend to beat ourselves up about unfinished projects but slow and steady can win the race too! Thank you Sarah for another great post!
