The Essay that Inspired the Book…


I haven’t posted anything here lately, and for that, I apologize.

I’ve been working hard to finish all the little details in the publishing phase, preparing for the upcoming book launch.

As of today, there are 14 more days left to this 90 Day Challenge. And I must say, it has been one of the hardest challenges I’ve ever done.

But it has been a labor of love, and therefore of more value to me than any monetary gain could ever be.

I shared with you why I decided to write this book, in the article 90 Days to Published Challenge back in June, to keep my promise to Christian.

Now I’d like to share with you the essay that he wrote that started the whole idea behind the book. (He was 11 years old at the time, in 6th grade.)

Although Christian did not like the writing part, he was much more enthusiastic in his storytelling when explaining it verbally to me, giving rich details from his imagination. That is how the story began to take form in my mind. I could see the details he gave transform into living pictures that impressed me, and scenarios that inspired thought and encouragement.

I hope that is what I created in the book, and that I’ve done justice to his story.
