We’ve done it! We’ve gotten through six days of the grammar guide and we’re on day fifteen of 31 Days of Writing. We’re doing pretty well!
Let’s take some time to celebrate, but also to reevaluate. What are y’all feeling? Has the grammar guide been helpful? What else would you like me to talk about?
In the next few weeks we’re going to tackle writing technique and stylistic elements, but if there’s anything else I can address, I’d love to do that. In the meantime, thanks for sticking with me through the dry stuff.
Writing is hard.
I just want to reiterate that for those of you who are in the midst of wrestling through extracting words from your heart.
Writing. is. hard.
I enjoyed writing the grammar guide, but it was work at the same time. It was looking up resources to help me define terms I couldn’t define totally or partially. It was hyperlinking and making graphics and creating Pinterest buttons. I wanted to make it easy to share and easy to read, but it isn’t always easy to simplify complexities.
It is this, however, that we are asked to do as disciples. Simplify (by outward demonstration of His love) the complexities of the gospel and grace (made only possible by His baffling love). It’s not easy, but the fight is always worth it.
So press on, dear heart. Keep writing, keep writing, keep writing. You are a writer, and that’s what you do. So keep on.
Let’s go back to celebrating, shall we?
