A dog with a mission — 6 Comments

  1. I really enjoyed this post. I’m one of those who waited later in life to follow after my heart’s desire. I have always loved to write. As early as the age of thirteen, I would be locked away in my room for hours and hours….writing. I dreamed of being a writer, but I never pursued it.
    But now, at the age of forty-seven, I’m working on my first book’s manuscript, and I’m happier (with myself) than I have ever been.
    I’ve come to realize we are never to old to chase after our dreams. I’m chasing mine, and it’s an amazing journey!!!!

  2. Best wishes to you, Debra! That’s so true–we are never too old to go after our dreams. I would love to hear about what kind of book you are writing!

  3. Hey Roxanne,
    The kind of book I’m writing is Christian Romance Fiction. I’ve always loved those–Happily-everafter, heart stopping, pulse racing, makes you weak in the knees, love you forever…love stories.
    I guess you’ve figured out by now my genre is romance ***smiling***

  4. Are you aware of ACFW? It is the most wonderful organization for Christian writers…and their annual conference is fantastic.
    BTW–the stories you describe sound fantastic–exactly like what I love to read. PLEASE let me know when you sell it, and when it will be out in the stores!! And everyone else following this thread, take note of it too! **smile**

  5. I am a member of ACFW. Hopefully, I’ll make it to Conference this year (I’m working on it)
    You just made my day!!! I will keep you updated on how my book’s coming along.
    It’s centered around Christmas time, and titled “Snowbound with a Stranger”
    I’m keeping my fingers crossed ***smiling***

  6. Please do let me know–I’m serious.
    I’m so glad you already know about ACFW. The conference is wonderful. I’ve been twice, and learned so much. This year, it’s RWA in Washington DC for me, but next year I’ve just GOT to get back to ACFW. The atmosphere is hard to describe. It is worth every last cent!
