Today I'm celebrating waiting... taking time to learn what I need... waiting for the right circumstances to show before I act.
A prayer I made this week was: "God, if I'm meant to speak up about my book [to particular people in my life], then please open the door wide where I will easily be able to go through it and speak." Guess what? That next day, the door opened for me to speak to those people, where if I didn't talk, there would have been awkward silences. With these folks, that never happens as there are always others around taking their attention. To tie this to the above statements, I prayed, waited for God to create the right circumstances and acted.
I'm also celebrating:
* Going to a panel discussion to learn about promoting my work.
* Going to the Christian Writers Seminar in Castro Valley last weekend and being inspired to publish a book of short stories and poetry.
* Having connections to join one or two writing critique groups. The one I go to at the main library is good but very rushed because of time constraints.
* Pegasus Books consigning my book. So they're at the Berkeley and Oakland stores in the Local Authors sections. I had to order more books to put in the Solano store, so they'll be there after I get them. I have to wait. :)
