Update on Writing

January 31, 2014

In 2013, my writing revived. An article, called “The Rock Hunt”, was published in the Inspire Faith anthology! It is a short account of my spiritual adoption in Christ. It is available through Amazon and the Sacramento Inspire Faith Christian Writers (,

By the end of summer, I finished the rough copy of my book about my physical adoption, discovered at the age of 38, and the reunion with my birth family twenty years later. Each chapter is going through a thorough sifting by a critique group. At this rate, three chapters a month, I will have a polished manuscript by summer of 2014.

The key to completing my book finally came to me   last year, thank God. I had struggled for a long time and never completed my book. I saw myself writing it like slapping raw clay on a board. The clay had no shape. Later when all the clay was on the board, I would re-craft it, reshape and mold it. I am doing that now.

At the same time, I will submit short articles to different publishers and elicit the help of more seasoned writers as I proceed down this precarious road. I am excited to share the wonderful stories and adventures I have had in my life. It is a exhilarating time as I embark on a new phase of my writing career. I thank God for clear direction and a host of writers to accompany me on this journey.

On October 1, I completed the Apprentice Course of the Christian Writers Guild.  It was a three year investment  – fifty lessons ( “a comprehensive course for writers”) done under the guidance  of a mentor. After taking a month off, I am ready to pursue writing!

I am in the process of writing my adoption/reunion book. Are there any other writers or wannabes who would like to share this journey? I’m learning lots and would also love to hear what you have to share.
