What writer hasn’t had a dry patch? When the words won’t come, I read quotations from “writing writers.”
“The work of writing has the rhythm of a long distance runner with long, sometimes lonely stretches at a steady pace.” (Max Lucado)
“If I waited to feel inspired, I wouldn’t get much done. The real inspiration comes as I work.” (Don Bachelor)
“Want to write? Go at your life with a broad-axe.” (Anne Dillard)
“Make them laugh, cry, and wait.” (Charles Dickens)
“Those who never, ever write will never ever be read.” (Unknown)
2 Timothy 4:2 -Proclaim the Message with intensity; keep your watch. Challenge, warn and urge your people. Don’t ever quit. Just keep it simple (MSG).
All of us have a story to tell. Close the car windows, sit down at your desk, and begin.
Psalm 45:1- My heart overflows with a good theme, I address my verses to the King; my tongue is the pen of a ready writer (NASB).
Prayer: God, forgive us when we keep your best to ourselves. Amen
