Worth The Risk

I was talking to a friend today. She was asking me about my writing and how my book was coming along. I told her about the plot content  being  foreign to me and  was having trouble with it. We continued to talk and she told me that maybe I am not supposed to know at this point why this book laid so heavily on my heart.  She said maybe if I would know I would not want to write it. We talked about how that is true in life as well. If we knew ahead of time what we would have to go through to get to the other side  would we do it?  If we knew the outcome would we try it? I think some risks are worth taking because even though we may not get the outcome we are looking for, we can come out stronger in the end.  So I continue to trudge through the words and pages until the day I can call this work a completed manuscript.

    Love the new look of your blog, Peggy.

    I’m going through the same thing with a book. Your words have encouraged me and given me the hope that, maybe, I’m “stuck” on my ending for a reason.
