Sherry Kyle here, writing from central California with some encouraging words straight from Sherry pic
Scripture. 

Are you worried about something? Upset? Do you feel helpless? Daniel felt all these emotions when he saw visions of the future. See Daniel 7-10.

Just like Daniel, we can feel afraid when we think about our future. Maybe you’re waiting for your next book contract and are starting to doubt if it will ever happen. Maybe you have a looming deadline and fear you won’t be able to complete your manuscript on time. Or maybe you’re so overwhelmed with life that you don’t have time to write.

Sherry Kyle pic Sherry Kyle here to encourage you from my laptop in Central California. 

Here’s a quote we all can identify with as writers:

"Real courage is when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what." 
-Harper Lee (To Kill A Mockingbird, 1960)

If you’re anything like me, you feel this way daily. When I place my hands on the keyboard, I wonder if the words I’m going to write will be any good, if they’ll have meaning or if I’m wasting my time. That’s when courage comes into play. It takes courage to be a writer, to see your work through NO MATTER WHAT.  There have been times when I’m ready to throw in the towel—on a project or writing as a whole. But I can’t give up. I won’t. I want real courage.
