Carnival of Christian Writers #13 – October 2007
This month we have an extravaganza of blog entries about the the craft of writing with a special feature booth all about the American Christian Fiction Writers 2007 Conference!
Hold on to your seats people, this is an exciting October Carnival of Christian Writers!
How do we keep from sidelining our “little” writings as unimportant? By remembering that practice — not just the finished product — is still service. Amy Jane presents “Practice as Service” at Untangling Tales.
Anne Creed presents Faith and Fiction posted at Novel Struggles. I believe that if I step out in faith, God will direct my writing. It’s like stepping out of the boat to walk to Jesus. So far, I get afraid and start to sink. I believe that God has given me the talent and the calling to write a novel. I need to overcome my fear with faith.
Literary Agent Terry Whalin encourages the reader to take some unusual steps — ask their audience what they want then deliver it to them in “Learn What Your Audiences Wants Ask”
