Re: Travel articles wanted

Hi Nicki, I just talked with my husband, Mike, and he is happy to have you use his article "On the Tour Bus" for your new website. I tried to give you the link below. Seems sometimes I have a harder time than others. But you can find it under D Michael Newell in his Challenge pieces. http://www.fait...

Re: Writing Biblical Fiction

Hi Jan - This is not my day. I really did send a note early, and that glitched. I do want you know just how much your lessons are appreciated. Now I am embarrassed as I'm not sure this is link for my article The Good Samaritan 2014. At this time is should be the very first article there - as I just ...

Re: Travel articles wanted

Hi Nicki -

I am interested. Mike and I are headed to S. CA. this coming week. So, when we get back I'll get in touch.

We have both been overseas as missionaries. Some of the stories are quite unique and interesting.

Hope you have success in getting the website up and running.

More later - Trudy

Re: General writing Accountability group desired to start

Hi - I checked the new site out, but couldn't see how to post on it. So am responding here. (Sorry for my ignorance about tech stuff.) This past week I completed my goals. I will be working on the things you suggested, Catherine. Have a great Thanksgiving all. I'm glad to see a good group willing to...

Re: General writing Accountability group desired to start

Wow - I am excited to see this group coming together. Ashley, I had to chuckle at you being nervous about joining the group. Shann - Thanks for your nudges, support, and for encouraging me to join this group. Ingrid - Good to have you a part. Just read your last couple of Challenge entries. (Sorry I...

Re: General writing Accountability group desired to start

I'm a little nervous about this, but if it's not too late count me in. I sure need this kind of accountability.

Thanks - Trudy

Platinum - finally!

Happy New Year! I just signed up for Platinum, and am really thrilled. This is a Christmas gift from my husband, Mike :D I trust I can use it to fullest advantage. I am finally back to 'normal' (whatever that is) physically. Looking forward to getting back into the Challenge and on the boards. I wan...

Re: Be a Better Writer--TELL, DON'T SHOW? WHAT?

No Jan - but her book handles things like POV, adverbs, adjectives, Dialog tags, Back story, sentence variety, as well as how to"show."

There are times it's best to tell - but I have a tendency to tell rather than show. I guess it's about balance. Trudy

Re: Be a Better Writer--TELL, DON'T SHOW? WHAT?

Hi - This time I have something to contribute. Shann recommended a great book to me by Amy Michelle Wiley - 'Bring Your Writing to Life'.I'd recommend it too.

Amy is great at explaining how to show/not tell. It is helpful. My problem is that it's far easier said than done!

Re: Jan's New Writing Lessons--TIGHT WRITING

Hi! I know this is late, but with everything going on this week I didn't realize there was a new writing lesson until now. I'm just beginning - but here's my attempt. I didn't look at the other edits until after I finished mine. Jan, this is tough! I'd be interested in seeing your other 'one hundred...

Re: Be a Better Writer--THE CRITIQUE CIRCLE

Hi - Thanks for the encouragement to do this. Right now I feel such a beginner, that I will just try to orient myself to what the circle is like. I'm nervous about this whole area of critiquing someone else. I still struggle with trying to check my stuff to make sure it's "'passable" Now that I have...

Re: Jan's New Writing Lessons -- COMMONLY MISUSED WORDS

Wow! I've been recovery from surgery and other things (not sure what) - so have been away from Faith Writers for over a month. When I checked it out today - what a goldmine of information. I, too, was always puzzled about blond and blonde. These lessons have helped tremendously. My way of handling t...
