The Writer’s Challenge

It’s time for the apparently more or less annual reboot of my blog.  A rather quaint and quiet corner of the internet most of the time.

Let me start by saying I’ve been journaling for years.  I quite literally have a suitcase full of old journals, and I have no idea where I’m going to put them, since I sure as heck am not throwing away the memories inscribed in this random collection of assorted notebooks.  Twelve years and counting.

But it was really only in the last year or two that I have started being challenged by others that writing is more than just something I do in my free time, just for the heck of it.  Some dear friends who I trust and respect actually took the time to point out that writing is something that I’m actually good at, that it is one of my giftings.
