Writing Tip and Prompt: 4/20/2012 

On Fridays we like to share writing tips and tricks with our readers. We hope this section will encourage and inspire you to continually improve as a writer.


Writing Tip: Change your habits

Writer’s block — it is an affliction that attacks every writer at one time or another. When you struggle to find the words and all of the good ideas have been drained from you, change your habits. If you are writing on a computer, change to pencil and paper. If you always write inside, dust off that lawn chair or park bench and try writing there for awhile. And keep writing even if it doesn’t apply to your story. Write about what you did last weekend, and you can start turning what you did last weekend into what your characters did.

I am feeling excited and scared knowing that man performs Babtism with water and Our Heavenly Father performs the circumcision of our minds. What a beautiful feeling to just surrender yourself to Him. Glory be too God!

I feel excited, and overwhelmed. I can feel the warmth of the sun blaring down on me,still there is an slight chill in the air. Yet, the beauty of an open show of that inward change in Christ erases the discomfort.

I am wondering if this decision I confessed, this prayer I have prayed, like an instruction manual to heaven, really does all they said it will do?
