Journey of Choice 001

*excerpt from today’s writing*

“There’s a train heading west tomorrow. You’ll be going with them.”

Nat’s glare hardened. “I didn’t ask to go west.”

The officer’s glare matched Nat’s. “Criminals need no asking. I suggest you bite that tongue of yours and listen to those in authority or we’ll leave you here to rot.” He turned and walked out, steady and looking sure of himself.

Writing Challenges 01

I really think writing “Journey of Choice” is going to be a challenge, as to place myself in Nat’s world means to place myself in a world where thinking is warped, as he is an unbeliever. I started the first chapter tonight and got stuck in the first page because I’m trying to find a criminal act for him to do (based on his street-gang lifestyle of survival). This really is a good problem, because Romans 16:19 says, “but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil” and it DOES make me grateful for how I have been raised. Yet when it comes to writing a message you feel the Lord leading you to write, it just makes one a little at loss of how to do it. 🙂
