Clever title! Beatitudes for writers - so original, and also very encouraging!

Clever idea--I don't believe there's another entry with anything remotely like this concept.

I found a few of the paragraphs too similar to each other in content.

This is definitely something that all writers should heed, and it was one that really spoke to me.

This is so right on! Extremely creative and even more encouraging. Amen :)

All for His glory. Amen and Amen. Lots of good lessons in this entry. Thank you.

Oh well done! Not only original and creative, but a good lesson for a Christian writer. After all, we are playing for an audience of ONE!

I love your creativity with this entry (and your title). The recurring "Blessed" and "Rejoice" is excellent. Super work!

Nicely done! A creative spin on the topic. I'm not sure why all the italics, but that's not a big deal.

I agree with Jan about the similar paragraphs- it seems like you were trying to rework the whole beatitudes for this, but maybe a summation of the similar ones would have worked, too.

Overall, I really enjoyed this, and how encouraging!

(although, I take small personal issue with if you ever get praise from a non-Christian than you didn't write it from God-- because frankly, I hope my writing reaches more than just Christians-- but that's my hang up- I think you were trying to go for more the beatitudes language there.)

Very well done. Much applause here.

Clever approach. The last one was my favorite.

I needed this. Writing can be discouraging and oh so rewarding. I struggle to make sure that I keep my heart in check. I want to write for the right reasons and not let selfish ambition take over. I think this piece was well-crafted and deserving of all the positive comments written.
