    I have an HDMI connection to a BG (Beta/Gamma) Wave Reader. I simply place a wire lead over each temple and relax into a meditative state. The congestive interpretation software then extracts the story in my mind, and converts it into a MS Word file. The entire process takes less than an hour! I end up with a 85,000 word manuscript that's perfectly edited and ready for publication. Then I wake up from my dream, look at my laptop, and yell: **Sigh** I simply peck away at a keyboard and hope it forms coherent sentences.

    I don't want to get into details, but my daughter and son-in-law are being bombarded from seemingly all directions. it has been a horrible and tragic year and they really need a break. also, my daughter is in desperate need of medical attention, but they are too poor to afford it. I've been helping as best I can, but I don't have the money to get her medical needs. this state is trying to expand soonercare ( a state program helping children get their medical needs) to cover more poor folks. it would help so many people--hopefully including my daughter. i'm also really concerned about their faith in God. they've gone through so much all their lives that neither have any confidence in God taking care of them. they are Christians, but have no hope that anything good will ever happen. their lives would put soap operas to shame. also, my other daughter is in desperate need of full time job. she is a sub, but because of certain state rules and her math dyslexia she lost her teaching certificate. she worked so hard to get it and taught for a few years before moving to another state where her dream was smashed. and last, a relative of mine is having heart surgery. could you please pray in that direction, too. thank you

    I don't worry if I lose an argument with "Dr. Harker." He's a champion debater! (Which means he says all the things I only think of after the arguments are over.)

    Hello community of fellow Christian writers! How I've longed for fellowship with other people who identify themselves as Christians first, and writers second. Although my vocation requires that I am consistent in pushing others toward achieving their goals, I am a huge procrastinator when it comes to my own creative goals, which is why I chose the name, 180Turtle, because as someone who has moved much to slow, I'm working toward turning things around, and utilizing the talent God has given me that I've allowed to lay dormant for far too long. I look forward to both giving and receiving feedback and fellowship, and I hope all of you have a blessed rest of your week! Take great care! 180Turtle

    I like this one, Alley: "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." Or, for brevity's sake: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Or: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son..."

    Need a book cover? Here's a website link for a friend who has been working in book covers for a lot longer than me. I make them, too, but here's one friend's website. ruthiemadison.com

    My dad took off the beginning of July for our annual vacation, and, sure enough, we'd go to a lake in Ontario to fish. No one celebrates the 4th in Canada. They celebrate the first. So, our traditional Independence Day celebration was an emergency road flare thrown into the lake. (It still burns under water like a sparkler, so worked great for kids. lol) If you have a road flare and a lake... (Oh, come on. Tell me I didn't get you to smile at least. Better yet, a little chuckle.) And, if you just want a little sense of American patriotism in Canada, see if this video doesn't make you proud to be an American.

    Found out I was dehydrated so am going to have some electrolytes before seeing if going to the doctors is necessary. Thanks again for your prayers!!

    It's a provocative title but I see where Robert McKee is going - it's the 'kill your darlings' mantra on a grand scale in pursuit of your very best writing.

    Test the waters of traditional publishing with a Christmas book. My MG first draft is done, finish the first rewrite. Begin more serious research for my next book. Stumble through the editing/ghost writing for a friend who needs mega help.

    I know You don't enjoy seeing Your children in pain To You it's not all the same You love us far beyond any fire or flame We face in this war against the one who is to blame That's why Job's suffering wasn't in vain It brought about a savior we can now call by name In the midst of any suffering that the evil one has dispensed I know, Your love endures far beyond whatever I am set up against Your plan has always been for what's for my best Only You know the story of what comes next So, it's You I'll trust until my days come to rest

    Hi, I'm an American ex-pat who's lived overseas for all but two of the last eleven years, with most of that time spent in the Middle East, including countries where Christianity, Bibles, etc. are illegal and terrorist attacks on Western interests are commonplace. I've written a kind of historical fiction novel about my experiences and am looking for some beta readers. If anyone wants to do an exchange, I like most genres and can beta read your works, as well.

    The Holy Spirit fun brought this site to my attention, although I am not sure about my expectations. I have been writing professionally for thirty years. The Jewel series is self-published and available on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble; six Christian fiction novels relating the traveling of a pilgrim through time and His quest for the jewel components to a mysterious pendant given to him by the Counselor. Originally, the First Jewel of Earth began as a Bible study and the series launched from there. My wife (a professional artist) and I maintain a website (www.kingdomexpressions.com) and a publish a weekly newsletter to our electronic fellowship. In the past, it has been a very quiet and unassuming writing career, with a fun and meaningful relationship with a few devoted fans, but many have been encouraging movement toward a broader audience. At the same time, I would like to encourage 'new' writers to pursue their vision. I am 64 years old, husband to one, father to one, grandfather to three. The Lord has been very good!

    I like these two Romans 8:1 "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." Hebrews 7:25 "Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them."

    Hello, everyone! I thought that since it's been five weeks since I've been dilated, I'd give you the whole story. On Monday, June 17th, I went to the eye doctor for a routine glasses/contacts exam and they dilated me with a drop called Cyclogyl. Within five or ten minutes of being dilated I was weak and dizzy, the lights bothered me, I had a severe headache, unsteadiness, my arms and legs felt like they had dead weights tied to them, and severe nausea. I also felt lightheaded, like I might pass out, and couldn't get out of the chair or walk. I had some water and sat in the dark for a while. The eye doctor finished the exam and soon I felt well enough to leave. Apparently I am part of the rare 1# that reacts to this eye drop. With no warning whatsoever, not asking if I wanted to take the eye drop on account of the risks included with taking it, they went ahead and dilated me with me not knowing the possible outcome. A week later I developed shortness of breath. I went to ER several times, and while I was on my trip, went to several doctors and had some tests done. The tests were normal. Today I went to a heart doctor. My heart is normal but he said it could be something called POTTS, some kind of disease or something that includes the symptoms I have. He said I should drink a lot and rest for a month or two and see how I am. Your continued prayers would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I'm curious about the writing schedules of individuals on this site? Do you have a set schedule for when you write, or is it more haphazard in nature? Do you wait for inspiration, or do you keep moving forward regardless? Do you have a "prime" time for writing, or do you simply write when you have time? Any discussion on this would be helpful. Thanks, everyone!

    There's a couple coming to our church (and putting in lots of work in the kitchen renovations) who has been dealing with legal matters for some time now. I'm sorry to say I can't give many details, but please pray the courts will rule in their favor.

    Hello! I am new to Christian Writers and would like to know if I should use a literary agent for a Christian book I am writing. I have self published 3 children’s books. One that received honorable mention in the Paris book festival a few years ago. I am concerned that most publishers will not take a look at my book without an agent. Any thoughts?? Thank you so very much! I am a nurse practitioner who absolutely loves writing and want to expand my world with other authors. I appreciate any guidance.

    Most of us, at one time or another, have a stupid question. Go ahead and ask it. One person - the "know it all" will reply about how stupid the question is,, and what an idiot you are for asking. Ignore him. Two people will give you good, solid answers that you can use. and most important, three people will be grateful because they also had that question but were too embarrassed to ask. You have been their angel, guiding them to the answer. Go ahead, ask the stupid question, even if you already think you know the answer.
