This month at Christian Fiction Online Magazine you’ll find the latest article I’ve written entitled, Challenges of the Writing Life. I thought it would be useful to open up a discussion around these issues.
When I write an article for CFOM there’s no place to really talk about it and get feedback. I’m so far from being the best I can be and there’s so much I want for my writing life and life in general.
Everyday struggles may take different shapes for each of us but we still strive to do our best for our families, our employers, and the books we write. Too often we neglect ourselves in the process and I think it’s so important to find little ways to improve, small changes that will eventually turn into exciting, fulfilling accomplishments. Yes, I’m a bit obsessed about the whole the thing.
Whether you want to quit smoking, get in great physical shape, write a thousand words a day, date your spouse (it is the month for romance), or just grab hold of that fluttering elusive peace in this busy world, I encourage to take the time to start. It doesn’t matter if you’re just thinking about writing your first book, written, The End, for the first time or the 100th time Take stock of what’s going on with you and make your world a better place. It’ll spill over into everything you do.
So please read the article and then come back here and comment on anything that comes to mind regarding challenges you face as a writer or challenges you see your friends trying to overcome. Maybe we can find a way to help each other.
Your thoughts are encouraged and valued.
