For Nothing is Impossible with God

During a writing event, I once asked a best-selling author how I could write a novel while working a full-time job. Without thinking about it, they replied, You can’t. This person dismissed me as if I took up too much of their time. They had crushed my lifelong dream like a tin can. Being unmarried means that I have to work to support myself. That made me feel even worse.

I wanted not to believe that answer because in my heart I know writing is who I am, just like my name, Desiree Future. Writing novels, blogs, newsletters and anything else is truly time-consuming because you must continue to learn to get better at it. It is true, it’ll keep you extremely busy. When I self-published my two novels, I was working a full-time job and raising my son (he’s grown now). I wore at least ten different hats as an Indie publisher, and it was really tiring.

Feeling overwhelmed and exhausted, I removed my books from their online presence as they weren’t one hundred percent me. They were bits and pieces of me because it stretched me so far. I put away all my other writings and such, but yet I kept going back to them. Then I heard a pastor say if you put something down and it keeps coming back to you time and time again, then it’s a gift from God.

Well, I picked up my writing again and here I am with an almost completed contemporary romance novel (I’m in the editing stage now). As of this moment, I have this blog with about thirteen followers, but I’m trusting God for thirteen hundred. By becoming a member of ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers), joining a critique group within my local chapter of ACFW, attending writing events and writing conferences, I am learning more about my craft. I’m doing all of this while still working my full-time job. Luke 1:37 For nothing is impossible with God.
