TITLE: Christian Writers' 10 Precepts
By Colin Swann


Constancy, in Christian writing, is a necessary condition that gives consistency to the writer's work and helps in completing successful script and service in the writing craft for our Lord Jesus Christ.

Oscillating from opinionated overkill to outdated old clichés must be deleted and re-written by a more outstanding order of word power which outdoes all other inferior ways of output in potentially producing a steadfast standard in the writer's work-rate and service.

Ministering by writing is less mercurial when the misleading and meaningless is missed out and the true writing's mandatory meanings are purposefully pursued and with a single mind included to make every Christian work a work of worth.

Manifold times God's scribes miss out on opportunities by opposing the obvious divine direction in
preference and pursuit of the least way of resistance only to find failure until there is a return to faithfulness and fortitude in their future work for Jesus.

Initiative in insulating issues against harm, hurt, or hindrance will for the scribe-servant produce and provide a canopy capable of allowing a keeping of account of successes that provides a continued covering and finally finishes with a definite determination to doggedly press on.

Termination of tedium and tiredness teaches the word-worker to benefit by being consistent and continuing in the care of level living by looking for rest and repose and being ready to learn the lessons in living lively when ready and recharged.

Meaningful motivation means more efficient effort every-time, even when the writer would wane and wish to withdraw through tough times of tedium trials; the effort must be to press on, resisting diverting direction but purposefully making the point of putting put-downs to sleep.

Enormous effort enforces a courage to continue when it would be easy to waste what would otherwise be a worthwhile work, to make a much more concerted contribution to cap that work with efficiency and regain an erstwhile energy.

Notable impressions of the inferior can be cancelled out successfully by the painstaking plodding that puts to rest ruination and replaces it with a restoration by a gift of God, given in good measure when sought after with a heart of faith.

The tendency is for the writer to take too long to search out time-honoured principles and this deficiency promotes a powerlessness in performing and puts the ministry of words that writers wield in jeopardy and they need Jesus to join forces with them to turn things round.

Great list of tips for the writer. Too much verbiage, though (I sort of got lost in each suggestion). Hardest thing of all, for me, is to write more concisely. Thanks for putting so much thought into this piece. We can all glean something from it, for sure!

You obviously put much thought into your article. However, long statements lose their effectiveness. Consider using succinct words to have greater impact with the audience.

This must have taken a lot of thought and time - very clever spelling out commitment and elaborating points on each.

I enjoyed it...It would go well in our church bulletin, or in a Christian workshop booklet. Nice job.

God Bless~

Nice. I've never seen acrostic poetry used in an entry before. A bit "wordy", but I like the idea. Good job.

What a mouthful of meaningful musings minus the mundane monotone of nonmusical misgivings!

Truly inspirational and quite right (write) on.

A lot of effort went into this one, but it paid off! Excellent piece and loved the acrostic style. Good job! God bless!
