Well today we're not crushing anybody's spirits. We are not stomping on anyone's dreams. Today we're going to have fun.
How, you ask?
By working together.
Today is all about you. About your work. Your thoughts. Your prayers. Your goals.
Tell us what we can pray for. Tell us where you see yourself in two years. Five years.
Years ago I was at an ACFW conference and I had signed up for a fifteen minute slot with a big author. She asked me about goals and dreams and said "Ruth, where do you see yourself in five years?"
And I said "I'll be like you, a multi-published, award-winning author, living my dream."
She looked startled and said, "Let's pray."
I felt like I wasn't supposed to have the audacity to say that in the presence of greatness. Now maybe I caught her off guard, maybe it came out wrong and she didn't mean that I'd need a boatload of prayer to get there... BUT THAT'S HOW IT FELT. :) So I hope I've been careful not to squash or quash dreams, hopes and aspirations.
ALTHOUGH THAT MIGHT HAPPEN TODAY!!!
So here's the scoop: You are my mystery dates.
If you want to post a short excerpt about your hero or heroine or story, post it and I'll tell you what I think... and I'll advise... but you don't have to take the advice, because you know your story best!
Are you feeling brave?
Are you feeling confident?
Like Nike says: Just Do It.
And we'll play. I've got most of the day at home today, so it's the perfect time for you to be my Mystery Date!!!!
Coffee is here.... and fresh Cronuts from NYC because you might need sustenance.
And the other gals may stop in and offer wisdom.... So where else can you get a published audience, looking at your work... and praying for your success? Just like we prayed for one another's!
Grab a cuppa and let's have some fun!
