Hi Lauree,

Thank you, for the kind words of encouragement, and for leaving a comment. I appreciate it! Yes, I'm a believer in God, constantly amazed at life and everything He's given us to enjoy. Thank you.

I'm so glad you've made plans to come to Prague. You will love it, I hope. Prague is very beautiful, and unique in ways I'm not sure anyone can express until it's seen firsthand in person. Please email me through the Contact page, if you need help or direction to the nearest great castle (they're everywhere here). :0)

And I do hope you make it down to the Alps. They are quite close, and magnificent, if even for a few hours.

I hope you'll share your thoughts and experiences after you're home-- I'd love to hear what your favorites are!

Enjoy your journey! -Jennifer

PS. I'm sorry your comment was sent into "moderation" -- I need to somehow get that fixed. We were enjoying vacation in the European land of English-speakers. Photos to come soon ...

This is a great personal breakthrough, deducting that creative expression can't always be judged worthy by its numbers.

I happened to have Pressfield's book open to the last page (because I refer to it often), entitled "The Artist's Life." It always speaks to me. The whole page says it best, but here's a bit ... "Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention [or numbers] on the part of the actor. It's a gift to the world and every being in it. Don't cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you've got."

Perhaps in the offering of creative gifts to others, we find the sustenence to journey the long haul and overcome the Resistance. I know I am grateful for what you and others offer to lead others along in the journey of life. Thanks for continuing the trek, regardless of the numbers.

Hi Jeanne!

Wow-- You were in Dubrovnik, too? :) Such a beautiful area, hardly discovered. We loved it. And of course the sunsets were unbelievable for sure.

We'd love to show you around Prague. It's only a little flight away. :)

Hi Daniel,
This is a great post, written from a unique perspective, I think. Thank you. I find all of the above to be true, not only in finding a "bestseller", but also simply in having traditional publishing success in today's extrememly tight market.
I have one non-fiction devotional published through Tyndale's The One Year line, and have since been writing my love, fiction. Hopefully, I've written and will continue to write stories that resonate and entertain. I write because I can't not write, and am grateful to have an outstanding agent. Hopefully we'll find success at a publishing house in the near future.
Thank you for this post. I look forward to reading your follow-ups.

This is a great post, Pete and Michael. Thank you. __When I lifeguarded at pools as a teenager, I remember learning the value in having a plan, because crises happen, and they usually happen too fast to create one on the spot. But for me, my biggest lesson has to be within our family-- what to do when the unexpected happens. Our oldest son severely broke his arm one summer day right in front of us. Not knowing what exactly to do, my husband scooped him up, and we immediately drove to the emergency room 30 miles away. Later, we learned we should have called for an ambulance, because moving him like we did nearly caused permanent nerve damage. Last summer, two years later, our oldest son broke his other arm (amazingly), again, severely. My husband and I were not in town. Our son remembered exactly what to do: the babysitter called the ambulance. So, the biggest lesson I have learned is to empower those around us to know the plan when a crisis happens again--there is so much value in passing on the lessons learned, in preparing those who follow with wisdom to face a crisis. __Thank you for sharing with others your lessons learned for difficult times--a gift.__Sincerely, Jennifer King__
