I wrote a tweet years ago. Before ATS really got poppin, before I published Falon’s Ending and definitely before I became a wife and a mother. I want to be a crazy mix of Octavia Butler, Joyce Meyer and Oprah.
When I pass, I want to leave behind stories that draw people from this world, this planet and this plane of knowledge. I want my books to make people question who they are and what is real. I want my life to answer the questions my book suppose. After people have entered other realms I want my profession of faith to help make sense of this reality.
I think I’ve always been afraid to be a proper writer. There was always something I wanted to do in junction to avoid being a pauper. This week my sister called me asking this very question. “What do you want to do?”
Writing alone isn’t it. But I don’t exist without writing either. So I’m presently praying for wisdom. I’m asking that God sends me boldly in the direction of what sets his heart on fire for me.
