If you enjoy the the wind on your face and open sky before you, you have come to a good place to find the romance and flavor of the West.

Why Be Persistent In Writing?

This week I have been involved in sending out five proposals. These were requested at the Writing For The Soul Conference that I attended the last of February.

When caught up in writing my stories, I don’t think much about whether I will someday see my novels in publication. But when I sit across from a publisher’s editor telling them why they should publish my book, I can’t help but think about the end results of my writing.

I’ve written four complete novels, and I have two others about half written. In my file of future novels, I have eight novels with a synopsis written just waiting for me to get to them someday.

Why be so persistent in my writing? There are several good reasons. One reason I write is that I enjoy it. Isn’t this why most people keep doing what they do? I don’t have to write. I can choose to stop anytime I want to, which makes it more fun.

Another reason I write is that I have these stories wandering around in my head and by putting them down on paper I can clear my thinking, until the next story surfaces.

Those are a couple of reasons I write, which is different from why I want to publish. My stories have strong spiritual elements. I want others to read them to help their spiritual walk.

As in everything in life, I want my writing, and eventual publication, to be to the glory of God.

About Me

I love the wind in my face, the open sky before me, the romance and flavor of the West, but, most of all, our loving and living God, who created it all. I love how He works out His plans in the realm of human events, which is His Story. I have been blessed with a gift: a compulsion to write Historical and present-day novels set in the American West that demonstrate His power to transform ordinary people into true heroes and heroines. I am just a scribe really. I find the joy of participating in the creation of inspirational fiction indescribable. May our Lord Jesus Christ receive all of the credit and be glorified.
