    My heart feels wretched and weary My mind's scattered from fear and fury Irrational thoughts flood my mind As God becomes the only grasp on reality, I can find There is no peace or restful sleep Only times begging for it to cease as hours pass and all I can do is weep My brain is held captive My controls are no longer fully active Some days I feel as if, I cant take a moment more Then my Father gives me a glimpse of the beauty He still has in store It keeps me holding on a little longer Until my Father can restore and make me stronger

    I know the answer. My soul is not poisoned. It's like I said in the posting that I used, to open this discussion: "Now I am a committed Christian. Some people might call me devout. I have accepted Christ as Savior, and am often filled with the Holy Spirit. I feel no barrier between myself and the Lord. I'm constantly in prayer, seeking His guidance in all things, including my writing. The Bible says, 'All things work together for good, for those who love God and are called according to his purposes.' "That is the way things have been for me, ever since I gave my life over to the Lord completely, back in 2003. My life has been filled with blessings. Would things be that way, if I was poisoning my soul?" That is the first message I sent to my friend, when he first brought this up. You say we should "...both talk it over with a knowledgeable, Christian third-party." That's why I've brought this problem here to christianwriters.com, which has a large number of knowledgeable Christians. I've invited my friend to give this discussion a look, and if possible join in. Either that or he'll be hopefully sending me e-mails. Then we'll hopefully work things out like civilized adults. Another thing. When it comes to disagreements, I'm much better at taking all the time I need to think things through, and then write them down, than I am at speaking. Also, it's after all the arguing is done, and everyone's gone home, when I figure out all the good answers.

    I assume that's my Buffy/Angel crossover fan fiction story titled "A Highly Valued Employee". I originally wrote that story back in 2006, when I posted it on fanfiction.net. Like I said in my last posting, I think the Lord has put my writings in quarantine. Now, I'm wondering if He wants me to go through them, one at a time; deciding which ones He would approve. Then I'll separate the ones I think He might approve, from the others which will remain quarantined, which I might delete from the websites where they are now posted. Doing so would be very difficult for me. I ask everyone's prayers about this. I also ask for help going through my works, to decide which ones I should keep and those I should delete. I'll ask for the Lord's guidance in this. In Jesus Name. Amen.

    Another possibility is that we are special creations by God, and there are no other beings in the universe (except for angels).

    So what is the connection between a video of multitasking and opening a Christian bookstore? Did I miss the sarcasm?

    Brother, I haven't read your fiction. I do know that you seem to be a devout Christian, and I can only say if it's poisoning you, then it's not evident in your conduct. Try this - deliberately write something Godly, of the Gospel. If you feel at all that you're poisoned, this will liberate you. I think you have shown far more restraint at being confronted by this than almost everyone else would be. And you're showing a remarkable willingness to accept correction. I only hope that if I'm questioned like this, I can respond as you have. And this may be your answer.

    Compile all of your notes into Evernote... projects can be planned in Trello or Asana. Between this, the community here and writing all your writers' platform tweets and posts, you now will be so organized that you'll have zero time to write fiction!

    Believe me, I have more than half a dozen random notes in my computer and even more in papers, books, planners, that I'm not even sure what they are for. I always carry a notebook with me wherever I go for those little instances when a glorious, brilliant idea or book title comes to you and you have nothing whatsoever to write it down on. I have more than a full paragraph of character names, and even more scattered all over the place. Talk about confusing when you're trying to name a character. ? And I have more than 150 book titles that over half of them don't even have story lines, just sudden inspiration whenever I least expect it. Just goes to prove the statement that you said earlier, Nicholas. Writers ARE some of the most least-organized and systemic people on the planet. And I, for one, know it.

    I created a comic story line of Jelly Beans on my website for ten years. I wove in Christian principles, and even had them going to church and interacting with their jelly bean pastor. It can be done. http://www.angelfire.com/trek/adventurebooks/humanbeans/index.html If you go to the fan page you will see that I had fans from all over the world and 20,000 followers. I quit doing it because I got into other things, most are on my website.

    Just thought of something else. Be sure to share others' posts. Not all of everyone's. Just ones you like or feel like sharing.

    Hello. I believe you will enjoy it here. You appear to be on the write track with God concerning love and trust,...so give it a try and share some of your work. These folks are great on encouragement and showing you ways to sharpen your skills of expression. Think of them as your adopted family and share with them what God is guiding you to write.

    Actually, I don't know that people expect anything. It's just when they see you in the timeline or choose to go to your page, which is less likely than the timeline. But you have to remember: FB has algorithms that screw things up and limit who sees you. So the more you are on, the more likely those you're connected to will see you. It only takes a couple of minutes to get on, quickly look through whatever you want, and post something. I don't think once a week will do it. Remember, you are developing relationships. So if you want good relationships, which in time will translate to interest and sales, you have to work at it.
