Pushing Send

Restoring the Shattered has gone to its editor. I’ll update in about a week about when we can expect publication.
At this moment, I’m exhausted and exhilarated. It’s been a long journey from the first page until today.
The journey toward publication continues, largely due to my encouragers. The Altoona Writers’ Guild and the Christian Writers’ Roundtable are communities of people who push each other forward. I am blessed to be part of both groups.
Robert P. Broadwater is on my mind as I write. He was the heart of our Altoona group. I wish he had lived to see this moment. He was a supreme encourager.
My husband Paul Head also pushed me forward as he read version after version to help me to this point.
Good friends told me to keep writing, encouraged me in the craft, showed confidence in a gift I didn’t always see on my own.
“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main,” wrote British poet John Donne.
I’m so thankful for the grounded people around me urging me on.
I’m so thankful to God for the gifts of you.
