The Process

The musing of my experience of becoming a better writer.

You know I really thought I had this writing and publishing thing down pat. Especially, when I first started out. Which is pretty ironic being I never published anything. I wrote some in college and my English and literature professors liked my musings. They even told me I had some talent and that I was entertaining. I didnít give their comments much attention because I never thought I would be writing. Then I graduated from college and I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. It wasnít until about three years later, when I asked God for help. Iím a strong believer in God and His wisdom. Well, God inspired me to write and so I began. (Sigh) I will tell you I learned so much from ĎThe Processí. I learned that just because Iím a Christian that doesnít mean Iím supposed to get everything I want quickly. I learned that the process is what makes you better. Before the process, I always thought things were supposed to work in my favor all the time. Bump a process. Thatís not true. There is a process to everything and I must say the process is wonderful. Now after seven years of rejection, tears, frustration and anger, Iíve learned that setbacks and rejections were aids to make me a better writer. Now when I sit down to write, I write with clarity and it seems like my heart is opened so wide to all God wants to teach me through the process. Those rejections letters become tools for making me take a deeper look at my work. Those agents that wrote criticizing remarks became contributors to helping me master my craft. So now I can honestly say the process is a good thing and I can accept it with open arms. I hope youíre enjoying your process as we all work to become better writers.
