Nudges and Mentors

Why do I feel guilty for writing this post today?

Because every minute I spend here is eating away the minutes and word count for  NaNoWriMo .

But I’m compelled to thank two people, whom I started following in the last few months. (Not in a stalker sort of way, that would be creepy.)  Two gifted writers/mentors who’ve encouraged, prodded, and destroyed all my excuses for not jumping in with both, shall we say, hands:  Gwen Hernandez  and Jeff Goins

So here’s my shout out. Thank you, Gwen! Thank you, Jeff!

My little blog is one unique snowflake on Mt. Blog Everest. But we all know what happens to a little ball of snow once it gets rolling and picks up speed. “Look out, below!”

Okay, I’m outta here. I’ve got a mountain to conquer by midnight, Nov. 30th.:

Climbing it one word in front of the other, eyes focused on the peak.


About Debbie Bec

Welcome to my life. I wear many hats: Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, Grandma, Friend, Mentor, Teacher, Writer...all of my "hats" hang on the tree of my faith in Christ. This blog is about the journey of faith in all of life's joys and messiness. For "In Him we live and move and have out being" (Acts 17:28) Christ is: "Our surety of life, realized." (based on Hebrews 11:1) Does this sound strange to you or make perfect sense? We are all on this journey together. I hope my journey will spark empathy and bring encouragement to your own journey through life. Come, walk with me... ~All pictures are taken by or owned by me, unless otherwise stated.~ ~~~ About twenty years ago, as I was flipping to the next month on an inspirational calendar, my eyes were drawn to a quote. My breath hitched, a torch was lit. I had an epiphany as I read: “There are a thousand thoughts lying within a man that he does not know till he takes up the pen to write.” ~William Makepeace Thackeray (how fitting is his middle name). I prayed, and I knew from that moment that being a writer was in my veins and in my future. The words and musings in my head would have an audience someday. Starting, today.
