Even though there are some challenges when it comes to writing, there are also great rewards. I've always had to be creating. I've owned my own wedding cake business and my own clothing design business. I've done a lot of scrapbooking and paper crafts. I've gone through phases of embroidery, cross stitching, crocheting, felting, jewelry making and painting. If I saw something creative and felt the itch to try it, I usually did. Writing is great because it gives me my needed creative outlet with much less mess than any of the other things I've done over the years.
Another reward is the thrill of seeing something that I wrote on a bookshelf. Knowing I put all those words together to create a story that people are enjoying is a thrill. And when I receive emails or phone calls or letters from some of those people, telling me how much they enjoyed it or how touched they were by it, I feel humbled that God has given me a talent and an idea that means something to people. It's a privilege and a blessing to be able to write.
