I hope you have enjoyed this first "blog series" journey with me. It has been fun. I would like to wrap up with a simple thought - "If you enjoy writing, always have an idea spinning around for your next story. You should be writing!" We don't have to be published to be classified as writers...we need only write.
This past summer I learned that my passion for writing wasn't enough for me, even though it had been for years. God touched my heart and inspired me to use my life's tragedy to help others - putting into words the journey traveled with Him, against Him and without Him. I pray if you were born to write - you recognize that calling on your life and start writing.
One way to enhance our writing skills and strategies is to attend writer's workships, conferences and gatherings. Join (or start) a writer's group in your area. Write! Good writers, write! It's great to "talk" about writing yet until you have words on paper - you're just talking.
Do you want to learn ways to improve your writing? Do you want to learn more about the marketing field as a writer? Do you want to learn how to put together a book proposal? Do you want to learn how to submit your manuscript or writing to a publisher? I hope so...
I attended Delta Lake's first Christian Writer's Gathering in Julyl 2010 and it was life changing. God worked in ways I couldln't have imagined and I learned so much. This summer I plan on attending the Christian Writer's Conference in Philly, PA.
Do you know of a great Writer's Conference or workshop coming up? If so - respond to this blog as a way to network with others writing looking to grow in their/our craft and be the best writer we can be for God.
Thanks in advance!
