I've traveled to Dallas to a writer's conference. I am considering writing a book on my journey through my son's addiction. There are days where I feel like I have to write this story. Then, there are days that I think, who do you think you are to write this book? There is the fear factor that is present because I have never published a book before. There is also the fear of publishing such a personal account of our life.
Last night, I was channel surfing. The lack of quality on TV is astounding. Let's just say that when I become intimidated by writing, all I have to do is look at Toddler's in Tiaras or Honey Boo Boo.....
I've learned a lot here. I've learned that I will really need to get organized, which does not come naturally to me. And, I will need to get clear about the message that I want to convey. But, most importantly, I only need to write if this is God's will. So, I will proceed with prayer before I take any further action.
The most important thing is my son's sobriety. What I have learned in this journey, is first and foremost for that purpose. So I will pray for wisdom. I pray for all of our loved ones who have felt the ravages of the disease of addiction. And, I say a prayer for Henry.
