I have reached the halfway point in writing my first novel. I'm so excited to be on target to complete it on time.
I have two other novels I am raring to go on once I've completed this one. I looked at the premise for both and realize it is going to require a trip to Scotland to do in person research.
Now you could argue that I can check out some books and DVDs from the library. I thought about that, and realized I need that authenticity that can only be had from a first person experience. It's also the chance to do research on two, possibly three novels.
On my walk today I prayed about it and got the "green light" from God.
First step is planning.
Knowing what time of year to go, how long to go, and the cost involved is crucial.
Cost. Money. Unfortunately flying to Great Britain (then a train to Scotland), is not cheap. Going airfare is around $800.00.
But I belong to the creator of the universe. What's a measly $1,200.00 to $1,500.00 dollars to Him?
God wants me to go ahead and plan the trip, so I know He will provide a way.
