Motivation and Inspiration

Motivation and Inspiration
by Joanne Sher

Both of the above, it seems, have been lacking in me over the past little bit writing-wise (at least as they relate to the projects I really need to be working on). It is, in a word, frustrating.

I’m guessing I’m not the only one out there who is unmotivated – whether it’s about writing or something else. So, to that end, I’m planning to share some encouragement right here in this post, in the hopes that [...]

Eat Your Broccoli

Eat Your Broccoli

Focus, balance, and your to-do list

By Randy Ingermanson

Over the last few months, I’ve gotten control over my insane To Do List. I described how I did that in February. The key element is to use a trusted system where all your tasks and projects are organized. If you know that your entire life is managed in one trusted system, you never have to worry about forgetting things.

Of course, once you have that trusted system [...]

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?

by Rev. Dr. R.J. Lightsey

Exodus 4:12
“Now go! I will be with you as you speak, and I will instruct you in what to say.”

I will get right to the point. There are times when I don’t know what to write about or what to share with others so they may be encouraged or challenged. There are days when I don’t have a clue what God wants to speak [...]

The Ministry of Silence (Devotional)

When Job’s three friends, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, heard about all the troubles that had come upon him, they set out from their homes and met together by agreement to go and sympathize with him and comfort him. Job 2:11 NIV

The book of Job for many people, is a tough one. It frustrated me for a long time – but as I begin to understand it a bit better, it has grown less confusing [...]

First Draft to Polished Gem

~First Draft to Polished Gem~
By Jannette Fuller

God has placed a call on our lives. Some are called to be apostles, pastors, prophets, teachers, and some are destined to write. That someone could be you! Don’t let fear and doubt hold you back from fulfilling your purpose. It’s impossible to reap a harvest if no seeds have been sown. Spiritual gifts and talents are given in order to bless others, not to throw away or to hoard. Matthew 25:13-30 (the parable [...]

Finding Time to Write: Don’t Despise the Bits and Pieces of Time You Have Available

Finding Time to Write:
Don’t Despise the Bits and Pieces of Time You Have Available
By Edie Melson

I had always believed that I needed at least an hour, and preferably three, to make any progress at all with my writing.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

The truth is, those small bits and pieces of time we all have add up to a lot. And wasting them can severely hamper our ability to meet deadlines and find success.

Over the years, I’ve learned how to [...]

You Are What You Read?

You Are What You Read?
By Randy Ingermanson

Years ago I was talking to a fellow novelist whom I’d just met and I asked him what his Top Five favorite novels were. This is a question I ask writers a lot. I’m always looking for great books, and one place to find them is on the Top Five list of another writer.

This guy’s answer just about knocked me over. He said, “I don’t read fiction.”

I couldn’t believe it. I asked him if [...]
