Who knows what lies ahead: When your inner editor and characters speak.

Who knows what lies just around the corner?

Have you ever gone to sleep or just as your head hits the pillow a thought pops into your head about something you are writing? Last night that happened to me. I was closing my eyes and heard, “You need to do something about the prisoner. Before the wedding, not after. Add some pages of dialogue and action and solve that problem before you go on to introduce your main character to others that will be instrumental in helping him get on with his life after his character arc destroys his new found happiness.”

I closed my eyes and pictured the scene I would need to create. “Lord help me to remember this tomorrow.” I turned over and fell asleep.

It is now late afternoon of the next day and I was able to do exactly what I envisioned in my dream. This is the second time I’ve had my inner editor and my characters take over my thoughts and dreams.

I hope Jonathan’s Winter helps people to realize how God intervenes in our lives through the people he places our way, as well as the trials and tribulations we face and walk through, hand in hand with God- if we let Him.

Who knows what lies ahead? What are you dealing with right now? Are you letting God walk hand in hand with you?
