For the Writer in All of Us

I have a poem in this anthology--a tribute to the writers group that I am a part of.
Lots of helpful insight and information for the writer in you.

'7 Essential Habits of Christian Writers' (published by Inscribe Press) is now out in ebook format.

Here is more about the book:

Could your personal and writing habits be holding you back from becoming a successful writer? There comes a time when every writer must develop the gentle art of discipline - establishing certain practices, or habits, that make it easier to carry out the right and good thing. 
This anthology deals not so much with the technical or how-to aspects of writing but rather, with seven key areas that are seen as essential for Christian writers to succeed. They are:

* Time with God 
* Healthy Living 
* Time Management 
* Honing Writing Skills 
* Crafting a Masterpiece 
* Submitting 
* Marketing 
The contributing writers are InScribe members. Coming from all walks of life, they write in various genres for a range of audiences. Collectively, they bring to this anthology an incredible wealth of knowledge and experience. Through fiction, poetry, and non-fiction, such as devotionals, essays, and articles, they generously share their own discoveries, success stories, and their hard-won lessons to encourage and support you on your own writing journey. 


“I love seven things about this book: It is practical. It is affordable. It is encouraging. It is worth highlighting, underlining and dog-earing. Plus it made me forget about my toothache. Whether you’re a newbie or a veteran writer, you’ll discover 7 Essential Habits of Christian Writers to be jammed with instantly actionable advice that will make you a better writer. Dig in.”

—Jeff Goins, Best-selling author, The Art of Work 

“There are hundreds of how-to-write books on the market, but none that I know of touches BOTH of the vital aspects of writing as a Christian better than this anthology from InScribe. The practical AND the spiritual are woven into a whole by a remarkably creative group of writers who are in the trenches as we speak. I intend to snack on this fare again and again.” 
—Nancy Rue, best-selling Christian author and creator of Shadow to Shelf, a mentoring program for writers.
