Resolution For 2010

I have greatly enjoyed the year of posting daily devotions on my Garment of Praise blog. I have read the Bible from cover to cover and learned a lot.

The discipline of daily writing has been good for me. Heretofore I’ve been a “when the muse strikes” sort of writer unless I had a specific deadline. That will be changing – has been changing.

This daily deadline has been good exercise. It forced me to do a specific thing every day. Every day! It got me in the habit of writing without self-editing at every turn, making the writing as good as possible on the first pass. It taught me to edit in a single – or maybe double – pass after the thing was written. It taught me reference and search on the fly. It was a good discipline.

The trick will be to take it to the next level.

Next year, I will be posting only weekly on Garment of Praise. I will be writing other things in those hours – and hopefully I will have a home for them.

It is still my goal to be a published author. I’m a couple of rungs further up that ladder at the moment. It may really happen – and fairly soon. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Never pray for patience. The Lord simply gives you an opportunity to exercise your patience muscle.

    Yay! for moving up the ladder! Each rung is important. I’m sure you’ll make it eventually.
