Just Pondering

I recently had a discussion with my spiritual adviser about my writing.  His advice ~ just do it and see if it bears fruit.  ON the way home today , I realized that I also really enjoy teaching. I don't always like the response of the students or all the paperwork, but the actual working to engage students in the discussion that I really enjoy. Unfortunately, it would seem that neither one of these are something I am really capable of doing to earn a living. I haven't truly tired writing, especially Catholic writing. I have thought several times about writing about our experience over the past two years. Larry's illness, our shift in focus, our spiritual growth both as a family and as individuals. So the invective to just do it ~ I am not sure what writing that should be. Should it be fiction, sort stories, essays? Dose it matter if the invective is to just do it? I guess not .So my first endeavor will be to go find a play I wrote a VERY long time ago and see what it reads like now.
Wish me luck and grace!

God Bless,
Kate
