  1. Let me see. I'm fine. No sign of illness in my house. Lockdown is my normal lifestyle, except now I connect by phone rather than in coffee shops. I am writing. Any writing I do seems like a miracle to me no matter what is happening in the outside world. This Sunday is again going to be for prayer and fasting to ask God to relent in His Mercy. I see His hand in many small miracles.
  2. We do have one. Lynn, what did we call it? https://christianwriters.com/topic/17248-one-church-many-houses/
  3. I languish in obscurity. Nothing I post resonates with the audience. The #WritingCommunity is just a bunch of writers who follow each other to boost their numbers. Well, they are friendly folk and have interesting and amusing things to say, but I don't resonate with them.
  4. Go for it! Remember, they have a formula. Research the order they put the specific elements they require. I once took a workshop on devotion writing.
  5. I don't like any social media, except here. Even here I have social stuttering. There's a reason I chose work that required a closet. (Audiobook production).
  6. Thomas Umstadt Jr. is the best resource I know on this topic. He has the Christian Publishing show, the Novel Marketing show, the Creative Funding Show, and various other podcasts. https://stevelaube.com/057-why-platform-is-not-important-like-you-think/ This podcast was a real shot in the arm for me. (The key word is RESONANCE) My favourite platform is .....ChristianWriters.com! Lynn reassured me that it is considered platform to be part of a forum! I can be found on Twitter. I try to encourage people there. I haven't pulled my stories from Wattpad yet, but I can't support it anymore, even if there is a small Christian corner there. I have my website and just today put out my second newsletter!! I feature my writing, giving out a bit of it in the letter. I have a Subscribers Only page that features recordings by me of my own work. I also feature encouragement. So much is needed. I blog in spurts. (That sounds like a poem coming on. A Rap.)
  7. God is walking straight through the walls of the church. We are more like family than ever. And it is wonderful! Nothing like the good outdoors to breath life into a body. I saw Mr. And Mrs. Pilliated Woodpecker on my walk yesterday. Spring is springing even though it continues to snow here. How’s your snow, Carolina?
  8. Our definition of fun. The witty kind. The clean kind that builds people up and brings smiles all round. I still don’t know whether I’m in or not. Every day is a new adventure. It is on my radar, and I hope to be there.
  9. I have never grown accustomed to one space. It is called a hyperactive thumb.
  10. You could also use the later stories as give aways on your website.
  11. Just don't get caught with flying body parts. Arg. this still trips me up.
  12. There's literally no use blogging on Ancient Egypt right now. At least, there doesn't feel like there is. But they knew about plagues! Draw in their expertise. In my Twitter feed, more people than ever are writing, "I need a good book tonight. Send me your book titles."
  13. Christians Unite Against COVID-19 A World Prayer Day has been called for Sunday March 22nd at 12 noon local time. All Christians are asked to pray at home from 12 noon to 1 p.m. and to cover the globe within 24 hours. Pray for: 1. Stopping the spread of the virus 2. Restoring the already infected 3. Peace for families who have lost loved ones 4. Restoring the world's economies 5. Wisdom for governments to deal with the outbreak. Never before has there been a reason to call ALL Christians around the world to a global day of prayer against a threat that affects the whole world. Please let everyone know. Let’s cover the world in prayer.
