Why Join a Writer's Group?
In our writing group this week, Pam opened with the main reason for the 1st Writes Writing Group: To encourage each other as writers.
Therefore encourage one another and edify (strengthen and build up) one another, just as you are doing.1 Thessalonians 5:11
Writing is often a solitary task, so interaction with other like-minded writers is very important. We each need to be strengthened by each other.
As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. Proverbs 27:17
What Does It Mean to be a Christian Writer?
To me, it means to write in a way that is pleasing to God, no matter what you write (Christian or secular).
Do you feel passionate about writing? If so, it is because God gave you a gift or talent.
Having gifts (faculties, talents, qualities) that differ according to
the grace given us, let us use them... Romans 12: 6
You should write because it pleases God when you use the gift/talent that he gave you. It also will bring you joy to do something you were meant to do!
Why do you write? What are your "Why? Why? Why?" questions?
