Connecting the Dots
Simple, right? While it might seem that way, strategy played an important part in winning the game. One wrong move, and the opponent could score a lot of boxes.
In this writing game basic principles include:
1) A great story.
2) Strong characters.
3) Advanced knowledge and application of the craft.
Within that framework, variations are limitless. Every writer brings their individual history, culture, values, and level of spiritual maturity. Genre, the publishing climate, support system, and family add to the mixture's flavor. No two writers will connect the dots in exactly the same way.
Seek God for direction and how best to use the gifts He's put within you. Then, connect the dots, writing in your own unique, beautiful way.
What life events shaped the way you write today?
