Another new guy here.

Hi All, 

 

There is something about sharing your passion with others that made this too hard to pass up.

 

Like many of you, I'm a Christian working on his first book. Joined the group to connect with solid like-minded Christian guys who are committed to the work. Would love for this to be the group (or forum) where we can encourage each other, ask questions, and check in how each other's projects are coming along. 

 

If you could point me in the right direction for those things, that would be much appreciated.

Welcome to our writing family, WB (your new nickname). Glad you joined us. You've come to the right place. Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you like to write. You'll find plenty of help, support, and encouragement around here, so roam around and make yourself at home. Blessings on your writing! 😃

Welcome, it is nice to meet you.

 

I am also a new writer working on my first book, so if you're looking for someone to talk to, I am good at doing that or be a sounding board for ideas I'm happy to help. But I've found a lot of people on here have heaps of great advice and experience to benefit from.

Thanks Iynnmosher. Good to be here. 

 

About me:

 

I am logging in from Canada where I live with my wife and little boy (age 1). Recently graduated from seminary with an interest to get into full-time ministry. However, as most of you are aware, something called Covid-19 happened, and has put a slight pause on the pursuit of those plans. 

 

As far as writing goes, I have always enjoyed it in some form or another. When I was younger I had a very unsuccessful acting career. By that I mean, my work was so minimal that you wouldn't have seen me anywhere. Lol. But the interest with story telling has lingered since then, be that screen writing, fiction, or non-fiction.

 

Having finished school, and loving my time there so much, I really wanted to "give back." Seminary, like any school, is made easier when you have others come along side you and point you in the right direction. I was fortunate to have that during my time. But I know not all do. So I decided to write a book on seminary as an encouragement to others. 

 

I am aware it may seem a little naive on my part, a student who just graduated wants to write a book on it now. Yet, what do you do when God lays something on your heart? Surely at least one person on here can sympathize with that. 😜

Great to hear! Rumour has it the first one is the hardest one. I am keen on finding out if this is true or not? You down?

 

What area of writing are you interested in?

 

(Would have sent this privately but I either am not allowed to yet, or don't know how to)

You follow His leading in obedience. I know. I did that 20 years ago. And there are others here who have done the same.

 

Congratulations on finishing seminary. And may the Lord bless your writing! 😃

I am interested in Christian Fiction, especially when there is an opportunity to convey an important message

You can hover over a person's name and click message button or create a new message and start typing their name and it should show up
