Bulletin board, index cards, sticky notes, sharpies, plot charts, and Pinterest can only mean one thing: replotting.
I now have the exciting challenge of rewriting half of my work in progress. God is gracious and has blessed with an abundance of story ideas.
Yesterday, I sat on the floor with sharpie on my fingers, Deep Space Nine floating through my headphones, and thumb tacks spilled next to me, "I am so glad I'm not God!"
As a writer, I understand how hard it is to maneuver time, people, and places. Lives would be so messed up if playing god was my job. God is the only qualified to . . . well, be God. He alone can make our stories flawlessly string together.
I'll use the stories God's given me, but leave the real life to Him.
"Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be the glory."
