My Long Winter of Learning


Those of you who’ve visited my blog know I haven’t posted in quite some time.

I could say that due to a faulty memory I had problems recalling my password, but that would not be true, so this is what actually happened.

I heard the ‘author’s call’ to write and chose to answer it. I picked up several writing books to help me learn the fine art of composing Christian fiction.

Imagine how long it could have taken me to write “Liberty’s Call”, or its sequel, “Freedom’s Anchor”, without the help of talented authors who have put their ‘learn how to write’ expertise into instruction books.

The following are books now on my bookshelf within easy reach.

“Creating Characters; How to Build Story People” by Dwight V. Swain

“Techniques of the Selling Writer” by Dwight V. Swain

“Between the Lines” by Jessica Page Morrell

“Plot versus Character” by Jeff Gerke

“Plot & Structure” by James Scott Bell

“Conflict, Action & Suspense” by William Nobel

“How to Write and Sell a Christian Novel” by Gilbert Morris

“Stein on Writing” by Sol Stein
