  1. Hi RLHicks. Sorry for the late reply, but I'm still trying to work-out how this forum works. M.E.(C.F.S.) has symptoms similar to Lyme disease, for a long time those who suffered with it were accused of making it up with the additional issue of having no sure method of diagnoses. When I went down with M.E. I had been weight training for over twenty years, was boxing and held down two jobs which may have run me down to the point that allowed a virus to get in and wreak havoc. The only test I have ever had that shows an abnormality is my Mitochondria level which revealed that my body is
  2. Hi Alley. As all here, I want to reveal Christ in me... Galatians 1:16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: And I do have an notion of 'the type' of person who might pick-up my book and I guess it is to that audience I must strive. Because if we do not reveal Christ in our labour we shall only receive an earthly reward, but if we reveal Him we can add to that everlasting riches that no man or moth can take away. And indeed, there are numerous ways to reveal Him from a good and wholesome life witnessed
  3. That was really helpful Alley, thanks. It has confirmed that which I was already thinking, and now having better understood my strengths and weaknesses I can move forward with placing various measures into position that shall 'God willing' keep some measure of control over my project as I let loose with my writing. In Christ Jesus, Karl.
  4. Hi Jeff. Indeed, we have been given spiritual gifts for the edifying of the Church... 1 Corinthians 14:12 Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church. But also to minister to the ungodly outside the Church [but not fornicators inside - verse 11]... 1 Corinthians 5:9-10 9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: 10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the worl
  5. Hi Vance. The driving-force behind the book I wish to write is your same desire to teach the reader Bible principles without them really realising it, through fiction. However, I struggled if I should even write the book at all after a few Christian friends thought I should stick to expounding scripture in the usual way. However, I have decided to press on regardless but wishing to start from a solid foundation decided to develop a solution that would make-up some of my shortfalls, it's nearly finished and will not only enable me to get information on-the-fly regarding characters, plots
  6. Hi Jeff. The only code I know is HTML5 and CSS3 but use Filmaker Pro to build solutions in which you choose scripts from a list and add parameters, but it is fun and I always end-up building something much more comprehensive than I set-out to build... and I have an unction it will be the same with the book I want to write. In Christ Jesus, Karl.
  7. Hi Jeff. I'm feeling more and more encouraged to believe that my style of writing isn't as bad as I had first thought, but may have been fighting it unnecessarily. However, I do need to exercise some discipline with regards to my research and 'house-cleaning' and my issue with endlessly reediting rough drafts. I build solutions with database software and have noticed that although I set off with a goal in mind I only really know what I want when I'm well into developing it, seems with my writing however somehow I must keep what I'm writing in a little more context than just the paragra
  8. Thank you HK1 Your reply has encourage me as although I wouldn't compare my skills to your's... have often wondered if I am also a mixture of plotting and pantsing. Maybe it is just the way it'll work for me and shouldn't fight against so hard, though I really must do some house-cleaning in my research folder and be more disciplined. My plotting does seem to merely point me in a direction then ideas take me the rest of the way to a finish line, or the middle of a desolate wasteland. :O Before I return to my novel I'm going to clean-up my research folder and 'God willing' finish my ma
  9. Hi Shamrock, these books are all new to me I've just been beavering away on my own for years hammering out blogs and articles, and I look forward to seeing if I can work with them regarding writing a novel. In Christ Jesus, Karl.
  10. Appreciated suspensewriter. I'll be searching for them on Amazon tonight. In Christ, Karl.
  11. Hi Alley, thanks for replying. Most of my writing revolves around current events in the light of scripture, and this in the form of blogs and articles and at times... even rants! :O Anyway, it has come to my attention that projects fail when I am presented with too much information and then lose my way, often turning out something very different than I set out to accomplish, if anything at all. The reason I need to deal with this now is because of a fictional book I am about to throw myself into which is founded upon scripture. My Scrivener 'Research Folder' is already unruly and
  12. Hi. I start off with a rough outline, begin writing and in no time at all find myself following a rabbit trail that leads to desolate places. Remembering that we are not all as gifted with a great mind, how do some of you guys approach a novel, article or blog before you start writing? Sometimes, when I'm writing scriptures come from all directions and depending on whichsoever I choose, results in where I end up. [generally in the middle of a field] I believe my error is born even before I even begin to write, and I'm sure some of you more successful writers have crossed this bri
  13. Hello there. As many I crash around leaving comments on social media in the hope that I leave a little light somewhere. Additionally, I write blogs and have been trying to write a few books for years now, with most resulting in an article if I finish them at all, yet there are one or two I haven't given-up on, but keep beavering away at. Ecclesiastes 11:1 Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days. I signed-up on a whim, thinking that if I hung around long enough I might pick-up a few skills here. What I'm really interested in is h
