What is the thing you love most about writing?
Writing is a journey. Not only do we create a storyline for our readers, we go on a virtual journey ourselves through the writing process. We even learn lessons we intend for our audience. But how do we make it real for our readers? What is the most effective way to write what we want them to learn from the novel? Reaching them on an emotional level is the best way to pull our audience into the story.
What I love most about writing is using emotionally charged words to draw my readers deep into the story. I want them to feel like they are in the novel. I want them to cheer for my hero and heroine from the first chapter. When I use spiritual themes, I want them to be able to really relate to the underlying message and to apply it to their lives. I think that’s what we’re called to do as Christian writers. We need to make the story so real that readers can say they understand the characters struggles in a very personal way and can see the spiritual lesson as viable to their own situations.
I strive to make each novel as powerful as possible using my unique voice and style. In the New Testament, Paul had a very distinctive way of addressing his audience when he wrote letters too. And it really catches our attention even today.
Here’s a verse to think on as a writer. Paul said:
2 Thess. 3:17 “I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand, and this is a distinguishing mark in every letter; this is the way I write.”
Let me write in such a way that I can reach more people for Christ as Paul did.
