Description - Writers in the Spirit by Carol J Rottman
With more than 184 Christian writer's groups and 155 conferences, thousands of writers are looking for encouragement and insight. Yet, every Christian who writes faces the same issue: finding daily inspiration and creativity. Designed to be both encouraging and practical, "Writers in the Spirit" guides writers from the novice stage to becoming dedicated authors, something that Carol Rottman achieved when she put aside all other "paying work" to write full time. Included in these pages are insight and practical tips on such topics as: Writing Realism: "Take yet another scroll, and write on it all the former words that were on the first scroll ..." (Jeremiah 36:27). Popular media have romanticized writers' lives to be devoted entirely to making beautiful stories. Writers in the Spirit explains the practical issues that writers face and shows how it is possible to overcome dry spells, endless revisions and even self-doubt. Writing with Fervor: Much of the Apostle Paul's writing was done in prison. Paul's passion to win people to Christ overcame any obstacle. While many new writers feel restrained, Writers in the Spirit shows how to find the passion that fuels the writing process. Writing in the Spirit: "This is what we speak, not words taught by human wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit ..." (1 Corinthians 2:13). Rottman shows that a personal relationship with God is the best source of inspiration. Mediating on God's word will yield creativity from the Creator. "Many of us are called as witnesses to the life-experiences God has entrusted to us. If your witness takes the form of the written word, this book will go with you as a trusted companion traveling the same path." - Former President Jimmy CarterAuthor, Statesman, and Thirty-ninth President of the United States "'Writers in the Spirit' helps connect me to God while reminding me that writing is a gift from Him and a calling to be both treasured and nurtured."- Sally Stuart, Editor, Christian Writers' Market Guide
