I discovered the “Scribble Chicks” a few years ago and immediately loved it. The purpose of the blog is to instruct and encourage beginner writers. The five Christian authors who contribute have covered a wide range of writing subjects from writer’s block to character development. Their insight and tips are invaluable to any person who hopes to get published.
Where to Start
That Don’t Impress Me Much…For reasons unbeknownst to me, especially since I like country music about as much as the requisite root canal, I have Shania Twain’s “That Don’t Impress Me Much!” stuck in my head this morning.
Strangely enough, though, the sentiment of that rather insipid song is a pretty perfect lead-in to tackling the question from Gracie, one of our Scribble Chicks readers. Read the rest here.
Hurry Up and Wait…We hear it said often that we should make the most of every opportunity. Then as Christians we’re taught to wait on God’s timing. What does that mean? Especially when it comes to our writing careers?
For me, I think it means a balance of both.
Waiting on God’s timing doesn’t mean sitting still and doing nothing. We still have to act. Sure, God is CAPABLE of getting us published without our ever sending a submission out but really – I don’t think that’s going to happen. Read the rest here.
If Only X…Have you ever read a book, and when you finished it, thought “Man, that could have been SO great if only X…”
What do you think X is?
Let me share a few of my X’s. Read the rest here.
If you’re an aspiring writer or just enjoy finding new blogs, check out the lovely Scribble Chicks!
Blogs are great ways to be encouraged and inspired, but make sure you aren’t spending too much time reading them. It’s easy to get sucked into the lives of others and start playing the comparison game. I’m starting to do these reviews regularly to provide blogs that will keep your thoughts focused on Jesus and inspire you to use your talents to glorify Him. Let me know what your favorite blogs are and send us your reviews!
