Take the opportunities you can to write for a community newsletter you are part of, a newspaper as a volunteer or for little pay. Rub shoulders with writers and editors and be willing to go the extra mile. Editors *love* writers who keep deadlines and "can deliver" what is asked of them. Remember this: follow directions. Never, never submit something to a magazine or book publisher without thoroughly reading the writer's guidelines and following them to the letter. The best way to get a rejection is to give the editor an excuse to reject it because you didn't follow the straightforward instructions.(less)

The big difference between "a project in the works" and "a project on deadline" is the deadline is because a publisher wants it, there's a contract signed, and there's money being exchanged. So that deadline, contract, money (however small or large) is a big motivation to move forward on a project. I recommend you sign on to projects for whatever amount, so you keep writing and have exterior (money, deadlines, for others voluntary, etc.) as well as interior (artistic, humanitarian, religious etc.) motivations for writing.(less)

I've been a Grisham fan since The Firm and A Time to Kill. I haven't read every one of Grisham's several dozen novels, but I've read many. Grisham's The Reckoning is set between 1940-50, through WWII and afterward, in rural Mississippi. Pete Banning ...more

Frederick Buechner
“Stop trying to protect, to rescue, to judge, to manage the lives around you . . . remember that the lives of others are not your business. They are their business. They are God’s business . . . even your own life is not your business. It also is God’s business. Leave it to God. It is an astonishing thought. It can become a life-transforming thought . . . unclench the fists of your spirit and take it easy . . . What deadens us most to God’s presence within us, I think, is the inner dialogue that we are continuously engaged in with ourselves, the endless chatter of human thought. I suspect that there is nothing more crucial to true spiritual comfort . . . than being able from time to time to stop that chatter . . . ”
Frederick Buechner, Telling Secrets

Søren Kierkegaard
“The Bible is very easy to understand. But we Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand, we are obliged to act accordingly.”
Soren Kierkegaard, Provocations: Spiritual Writings of Kierkegaard

“Can there be an evil greater than being ill at ease in our own house? What hope can we have of finding rest outside of ourselves if we cannot rest within? . . . Peace, peace, the Lord said, my Sisters; and He urged His apostle so many times. Well believe me, if we don't obtain and have peace in our own house we'll not find it outside. Let this war be ended. . . . I ask those who have not begun to enter within themselves to do so; and those who have begun not to let the war make them turn back. . . . Let them trust in the mercy of God. 1 Saint Teresa of Avila”
Roger Heuser, Leading the Congregation: Caring for Yourself While Serving the People
