Here’s your weekly inspiration for Christian Writers. Enjoy!
Hey Christian Indies,
I wonder what the open rate on this newsletter will be.
Like, when writers see the word, “sprint,” will they think, “wait a minute, when did I sign up for yet another health and fitness newsletter?”
Will they actually believe we, the hosts of the Christian Indie Writers’ Podcast, are planning to instruct other humans on the form and manner of running – very quickly – for short distances?
The short distance part sounds right….but…Hmm.
Obviously, I’m banking on the fact that you know us better than that, Christian Indie! And if you’re reading this far, that is definitely the case; you know that we know “sprinting” in the writers’ world has nothing to do with track shoes, and everything to do with finally getting your novel published! That’s right – sprinting is the key to unlocking the power to finish your novel’s first draft more quickly than you’d ever imagined.
Sprinting is also a great motivator. There is nothing like hearing the timer go off and realizing that you just wrote a hundred words or more without really “trying.” You’ll start to crave the exquisite feeling of writerly abandon you get when you embrace the white font challenge and write, write write!”
“But, I have so many questions!” I imagine you responding, “For example, what is the white font challenge? And, also, what is the most effective way to sprint?”
Well, Indie, we suspected you’d be asking, so we’re fixing to tell ya. Join us in the chat this week as Jamie, Jen, and Tina discuss our favorite sprinting technique in detail. You’ll leave equipped with everything you need to know in order to harness the power of word sprints and finish that first draft!
See you there,
But where to find writing prompts!? We’ve got the answer – we’ve written a book! More details coming in future installments of our newsletter, so stay tuned!
