If God and I sat down and had an official discussion it would have gone something like this:
God: I have a blog idea for you. I know that you've had trouble coming up with new ones so I did it for you.
Me: Well thank you! What is it?
God: I want you to write about your past issues. Your eating disorder, your ex boyfriend, and your self harm.
Me: ......excuse me?
God: You haven't been able to get those things out of your head lately. They would be great tools for your book but I want you to blog about them.
God: You'll touch and save lives.
Me: I can't. I just can't do it.
God: Yes, I'll help you.
God: This is what you're supposed to write about. You won't be able to come up with anything else until you do...and after a while your book will stall out as well. It will be cathartic AND helpful for someone.
That's how I imagine it would go anyway. How did it actually go? I got the feeling that I should write about these things and I ignored it...and then I hit writer's block all around.
So over the next few weeks I'll be doing several blogs covering several of these topics. I'll be including a lot of journal entries *gulp* and facts and links. Pray for me? This will be rough...
