Weekend Edition – Finding Your Readers Plus Good Reads and Writing Tips

I am in a tight place with my writing so this is my Monday word for writing inspiration

Live to Write - Write to Live

So Many Fish in the Sea, So Many Readers in the World

wooded roadWriting is an intrinsically challenging task. To do it well you must corral and harness many different parts of your intellect and spirit. You must learn to manage the diverse elements of your vision, imagination, and craft so that they move in tandem, pulling your story forward. The process requires varying degrees of earned skill, innate intuition, and stubborn stamina.

If, in addition to getting the words on the page, you also hope to have others read those words, you introduce an entirely new layer of complexity to your literary endeavors. In essence, you invite strangers to collaborate in your creative process. Because, make no mistake, crafting your story with a reader in mind (even an as yet unknown reader) changes both the writing experience and its outcome. As Samuel Johnson said, “A writer only begins a book…

WWOW: Writing When V is For Victory

When I sat down to the computer to work on a chapter to be used in my book, I saw at least seven things to take me away from writing. I opened one of my devotionals and this is the scripture I read. Psalm 9:1 I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; IO will tell of all your wonders. God has given me all the sources and resources to complete this goal so I am feeling confident in the Way and Will He sets me up to achieve a chapter today. He gives me Victory Blogging from A-Z. IMG_0040

WWOW: The Society of Ministering And Meditation

IMG_0001This is a photo of my Healing Cover with scriptures and Words of Wellness that I started to collect in 1998 . I also present this as a part of my Wy’s Ways of Wellness speaking events and online radio program.! I spent some of the time reading them as my #InspiredGratitude.

On day two of my twelve day “Saga Challenges and Choices,” I woke up to prophecies being delivered  as double rainbows and my need to make changes. I have decided that I must spend time listening more than ever as I conquer the fear and  fast forward for the ministering.

On Writing: Motivation

I decided to reblog for motivation and inspiration and use my time wisely for writing.

Life Through the Big Screen


When it comes to writing and developing characters, you need always to keep one word in mind: motivation.

Motivation is helpful in two fronts. Motivation…

a) defines characters, and

b) pushes the story along

Think about it. In order for the beautiful harmonizing of a solid story and lovable characters to occur, several things must happen, but the main thing is motivation.

Think Lord of the Rings. Not only is the story itself driven by the motivation to destroy the ring, but the characters are defined so clearly because of that motivation.

Think Finding Nemo. The title itself is the motivation behind the story and the characters.

Motivation is nearly everything in a story. Why am I writing this? Why is the bad guy bad? Why did my protagonist just do that?


But the catch is, the motivation must be believable.

Writers – don’t make your characters…

WWOW: Wonderful Week and Weekend!

IMG_0001This week I was inspired to write by attending the Foundations and Futures “Joining the Song” of Faith Community Nursing Practice at the Westberg Symposium 2015. This year it was held  at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis Tennessee. I met new friends and found some of my FCN friends from many years before. I am so inspired to share the many nuggets from these encounters, experiences and events. I am amazed at how we learn so much from our elevator rides and bathroom breaks so I will be sharing in some of the future blogs. #II am in gratitude to ACS.
