I asked some of my writer friends this question:
So, tell me. How did you change and grow during 2007? What was your character arch?
This is what my dear friend, Robin Lee Hatcher, had to say:
A few years back, I began asking the Lord in December for a word for the coming year. For 2007, He gave me two: Peace and Simplicity. After going through a long period of grief and loss in 2006, I was ready for both. I found myself paring down my life to the essentials, letting go of things that I might not have thought possible. In the spring, God told me to sell my house and downsize to something smaller and easier to care for. I gave away and gave away and gave away, determined to own the things God gave me and not to be owned by them. At year end, I would say that I am more at peace with my life and with the world around me. However, I don't believe I'm done with the simplifying process yet. That is still a work in progress.
