Being a author, whether through a publishing company or being self published, takes hard work. Why? Because writing isn’t for wimps! Nawl! But it’s not just the writing because them comes the hustle and flow! See, what’s the sense of spending all of your extra time writing to simply allow your work to sit idle. You have to grind extra hard being a new author just to get your name out there. Then you have to keep up the hustle and the grind to keep your name out!
Yea, you’ll have a few bad reviews but your work won’t please everybody, all the time, so keep grinding. Yea, you’ll have folk, even some family and close friends that won’t support you but even Jesus knew this for He said in Mark 6:4, “A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown and among his relatives and his own family.” Yet don’t stop the hustle.
I pray daily for God to kill more and more of my flesh so that I can be spiritually better than yesterday. This doesn’t mean in order for me to stop writing fiction books (unless God says it) but so that even they will be anointed!
I told you that writing didn’t find me; it was etched in my soul even before my daddy’s sperm met my mother’s egg! How do I know? God told me. He said He knew me before I was formed which makes my writing (whatever genre) ordained! It is my prayer that the mark I leave on your life is a good one. I pray that when you look at me, you see God. I pray that God will use me abundantly to save folk. And I pray that He allows my gifts to take me places I’ve only dreamed of.
It’ll happen … In God’s time! Don’t give up, hold on! (that’s for somebody) #transparentSaint
