I have been writing all my life and in all that time I have come to this one conclusion: Your dreams are you own to shape and mold. They belong to no one else and there can be no better way to focus dreams than on a piece of notebook paper. The challenge when writing is finding your "inner voice". We all have this "voice" lurking deep within. It is part of your soul that G-d created within you...a gift, if you will. Once you find your voice, you must learn how to transplant it from within you heart and onto a sheet of paper or into the template of a Word document. This is where the challenge gets the toughest for most. How you put this "voice" on paper can make all the difference in what you are writing. If you are a writer than you probably love to read as well. Take a look at a few of your favorite authors and you will see that each has their own way of telling a story. Some use more adjectives or more dialogue than others. Some chose to write the character's accent and some chose not to. The point is, no matter what you do, be consistent.
After the story is written you need to make a decision on how you are going to proceed. How is it that you want to share "your voice" with others? There are many websites nowadays where you can post your work...many of these sites are frequented by publishers and agents. My suggestion, get an agent the specializes in the genre for which you write. If they love Historicals, then they will be more enthusiastic about selling...historicals....and so on. I wish you all the best of luck in your endeavors. Don't be affraid to throw yourself out there. More importantly, don't lose touch with your Faith in G-d and Yeshua...remember that if you are a believer, then you represent G-d in all things you do....writing can not be an exception. Elohim Gadol, my friends!

First of all, God bless all of you! I believe that God gives us all gifts, and it is our responsibility to seek out those talents and use them as He would have us do so. What a wonderful gift it is to wield the written word. It gives me great pleasure and gratitude for this gift, however I also realize what a responsibility it is as well. Never stop. There will be days when we don't feel like writing anything at all, but God will see us through it. The other day, I woke up after a horrible night's sleep, found out I had a bleeding ulcer, and my wife had to take herself to the emergency room for a minor illness. That same day, the good Lord gave me the strength to still manage to get up, clean the kitchen, do some laundry, and a few other chores to take the burden off of my wife that night. I didn't feel much like writing at all, but started taking notes and researching material for my next book; and before I knew it I cranked out 3000 words towards a new manuscript. God truly does work in mysterious ways! God bless to all! :cheers:
