I’ve been feeling the need to give an update on my neighbor project, my Spanish usage, and anything else that involves this blog. However, I’m hitting a road block. There are plenty of ideas driving in cars, but the writing police are saying, “Hold up, you can’t drive through, you can’t go this way.”
I’m reading a very interesting book that my father recommended to me, because he said, “It sounds like you.” It is A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller, a book, in which he writes about writing. I’m at the point in which he is attempting to explain to his publishers the concept of the book. He states, “all of us are living stories, and those stories teach other people to live stories. And what our stories are about matters, not just for us but for the world” (125).
It makes me wonder what my story, my blog, is teaching others. Has it really made a difference in any one of your lives, or am I just writing to hear my fingers type on the keyboard as if I’m trying to play a highly staccato song?
I have hit this road block and there is a lot of honking in my head. I see flashing lights, warning me to stay back. I can picture police officers in long trench coats, telling me and my ideas to turn around because there is danger up ahead.
I’m not sure where my story goes from here.
