I was unsure of what to write when I first sat down. Then, it came to me like a flash in the dark, and trust me the flash didn't last long.
It's the unknown that scares most people into not making decisions to act and move forward. No one really knows what's around the next corner when making a decision to write a book, move across country, move to another country, change employment, invest in stock (that's real scary), have a baby (heck, have five). You get the point. But if you don't make the choice, then where are you? I see you standing there, just standing there, while life passes you by.
It's like the story of the talents in the scriptures. What do you want to do with the talents the Lord has blessed you with?
The unknown is an awesome endeavor to the adventurous; a nightmare to the planner; plain scary to the insecure.
If you try and fail, then try again. What awaits around that next corner could be the success we all are looking for. So, hey, the unknown isn't so scary after all. If you don't walk around that corner you will never know what the unknown has waiting for you.
Okay, since you've read this what are you going to do? Unsure? I know, go write that million book seller. You just might be the next Stephen King, Dean Koontz, J. K. Rowling, or Stephenie Meyer. Whatever, unless you try, you will never know will you? I love the unknown. That's the fun part of the journey.
