Ahhhh, the path from scribbler of words to published author. The realization that it isn't about being published at all but about enjoying your gift from God and sharing it. I know I enjoy your gift. But don't you love booksignings where one person shows up. I DO!!

Yeah, that's one part of writing I don't think I'd do well at!! I think you're missing one little word in this sentence at the end: "and believe I’ve been entrusted with this gift by God" I think it needs an 'I' there. I felt your discomfort, and rejoiced as it became easier. Good story.

Great reality check! Announcing that "I am an author" does sound presumptuous when it first rolls off your tongue, I imagine. Even admitting to being a writer seems a bit risky to some of us. I really could identify with this missionary in disguise. That really is what we are, isn't it? Good job.
