So, writing a book is on my bucket list.. as it may be for you as well. As with many things in our life, saying it is so much easier than doing it sometimes, right? While the story of my journey with Jesus and John during his diagnosis and death from ALS is important to me..is it really something that anyone else is interested in? Well, there is really only one way to find out..Pitch it..to an editor, an agent or a publisher. And it just so happens, that every year there is a conference for just that purpose. She Speaks is produced by Proverbs 31 ministries, based in Matthews, NC. It is headed by Lysa Terkuerst, the New York Times best selling author and speaker. Her passion is teaching women and providing a forum in which they can sharpen their skills, step out of their comfort zone while in a safe space, make connections and press on toward their God given dreams.
Registering for the conference was the easy part…preparing for it..another story.
Assembling the transcripts, notes, scribbles and half finished thoughts that I have compiled during these past months was a process. Compiling a finished book proposal was daunting. Yet when it was completed, I felt ready…ready to pitch this piece of my heart to a few souls in Charlotte. So off I went. No one said the book wouldn’t work..No one asked me to sign on the dotted line either. More feedback in a few months. So I will wait, work and know that God’s timing is perfect ..and this piece of my pitched heart will find it’s way back..or not.
