Things have been a little lonely around the blogosphere this past month, as a large majority of writers dedicated themselves to participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). As the blogging community became something of a ghost town, I had to continually remind myself to take a deep breath, keep calm, and just continue hitting that “Publish” button.
Now, as we head into December, I’m not sure we can expect our stats to pick up. For most of us December is the busiest month of the year as we try to fit holiday shopping, school and church programs, and countless Christmas dinners into our tight schedules.
For all of you writers out there, don’t feel discouraged! Enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the season, take time to celebrate Christ this month, and keep on sharing the message the Lord has placed on your heart. If you’re writing to bring honor and glory to Him, then He is sure to bless it.
As a gift for my fellow writers, here are five writing quotes that I find particularly inspiring during this blogging dry spell:
“You don’t write because you want to say something. You write because you have something to say.”
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
“Oh that my words were written! Oh that they were inscribed in a book!”
2 Corinthians 3:2
“You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men.”
“Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the LORD.”
