Author Haven, talks about seeing your writing as a ministry.
Do you consider your writing a ministry?
Laurel, at Laurel's Leaves, gives excellent tips on choosing a title for our stories.
Have a blessed weekend!
Ohh! I always struggle with finding a title. Thanks for the link!
Good links, thank you!
I don't even have a title for this book, Will go see what she has to offer. Happy weekend!
Hi Katie -
Me too. Sometimes I don't have a title until after the book is finished.
Hi Karen -
You're welcome! Enjoy the weekend.
Hi Terri -
I hope the article gives you some ideas. :)
I'll check out Author Haven - always good advice there. I think most of us struggle with titles. I know my current WIP is titled "Current WIP"! Have a good weekend Susan!
Thanks, Susan. I often come up with the title and then write the story, guess I'm a little backwards. Enjoy your weekend too!
Oooh, choosing a title--I totally need that right now. Thanks for the link.
Titles are hard for me, and yes, I do consider my writing a ministry! Have a great weekend!
Hi Jan -
My book, "The Scent of Fear," was called, "Book 2," long after the first draft was finished. :)
Hi Carla -
I had the title of my first book before writing it, but it got changed about half-way through. The second and third books took more brainstorming. I'm sure those titles will change.
Hi Cindy -
I'm always amazed how the Lord brings the right information at the right time.
Hi Jill -
I also consider my writing a ministry. Since I still write non-fiction, my heart is always thinking of a story's redemptive value.
Kathryn had some very interesting ideas about ministry. I agree with all that she says. I'm glad she received an offering. Time for her to think in new ways.
Hi Nancy -
In a sense our entire lives are a ministry. How we live and work speaks volumes about our faith.
I consider my writing a ministry as I tithe twenty percent to my church and to missionaries. I give an additional ten percent to charities like Childrens Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and Susan Komen Race for the Cure.
I don't use any G-dmans or F-bombs in my books. No exploitation of kids either. Other than that, I'm free to write.
Hi Stephen -
It's wonderful that you're using the proceeds from your book to benefit so many.
I always appreciate clean books with no profanity.
I try to approach my writing as a ministry. I even have business cards carrying the title, Quiet Spirit Writing Ministry.
Thank you for sending us there to read Kathryn's thoughts.
Hi Quiet Spirit -
My writing started out with a ministry mindset, and I'm determined to keep it there. I don't want to ever forget the reason I'm traveling this path.
