Writer or reader, I’m glad you stopped by. Allow me to share the story behind the TrailBlaze theme. I believe that everyone has their own journey to take, their own unique story to tell—whether it’s crafted from true experiences or an original imagination. For some, the path may lead to publication. For others, the purpose of writing may simply be for personal fulfillment or for particular people in their life. Whatever your path, no one can blaze your trail but you, so enjoy exploring!

I have a confession: blazing new trails does not come naturally to me. Quite the opposite, actually. I’m the kind of person who wants to map the entire route before I ever mount up. I’d rather stay on the safe, well-worn path than take the risk of getting lost. It’s easier for me to follow others than to take the lead. But the reality of life, and often writing, is that we can’t see around the next corner. Even if we know where we’re headed, the journey there may not be the way we were expecting. Detours may lead to different destinations. That’s the beauty of the creative process. The name TrailBlaze reminds me to pursue creativity instead of comparison, to let go of my fear of making mistakes, and to seek in faith the new things the Lord has for me.

If you’ve read my work, thanks for sharing the journey with me. If you are interested in partnering with me for help with your own writing, check out the services page and let’s take this journey together!

Happy Trails,
