Since I was a little girl, I’ve wanted to be a writer. Honestly, you probably already knew that because I’ve written about this dream many times since I started TTT in 2015. Well, my dream finally came true this year. The summer, I signed my first book contract. I'm a published author now. Yet this season of life feels a bit anticlimactic.
So many things have happened over the past five years. But one thing hasn’t changed in five years: I still want to be a writer. I still want to get a book deal. I still want to see my name on the front cover. I still want to be famous.
I wouldn’t say that I have “arrived." as a blogger. But I’m here, and here is a good place to be because this is where God brought me. But I had to say “yes.”
To celebrate this three-year blogiversary, I'm giving away three copies of an exclusive e-book called Trust: Truths for Times of Timidity. This is a seven-day devotional that will guide you in understanding wise truths from the Bible and making wise decisions when your life feels uncertain. I'll be sending this book to the 273rd, 274th, and 275th followers if they follow Tizzie's Tidbits by December 24, 2018!
I feel unsure about my blogging future because I'm not sure if blogging will take me where I want to go. I don’t know if or when I will accomplish my writing goals. I can’t imagine blogging for five more years and not getting a book contract as a result. I worry that I’ll keep writing and blogging but will never become a well-known author. I fear that my efforts will be wasted. My blog is just one grain of sand on the vast seashore of the World Wide Web. So why do I keep blogging?
I'm quick to note the sins of society and my friends and my family, but I’m slow to note my own failings. I don’t realize how much I sin in a day, but I do it more times than I can count. I don’t realize how many things I think, say, and do that displease God.
