Be Willing...

"Write what disturbs you, what you fear, what you have not been willing to speak about. Be willing to be split open."

That's a great quote. What a strong call to be willing to "put ourselves out there" and trust God for the results & response!

I think, too, that when we're willing to write this way, our readers will connect because so many of our fears are universal.

Excellent quote, Tricia. Won't you come visit my new writers' blog sometime? Would love to have you pop by.

Natalie Goldberg is talking pain, deep, scar-tissue-ripped-open-pain. Only one thing warrants that level of travail: obeying God's call. Personally, I want to confirm His call through prayer, His word, and His family before I commit to such blood-letting.
