Be media literate. 

I’ve been thinking about this for a long while, and I can’t come up with a better time to talk about this than now, what with coronavirus and the presidential campaign.

I’m a sucker for stories. 

It hasn’t always been this way. I didn’t really like reading until 6th grade when I picked up The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale and devoured it on a Sunday afternoon. I have a soft spot for princess stories especially, and that book was a great g...

Since 2016, I've been writing devotions for CBN.com. It's the first place where I finally got a by-line, and I got to share a little about myself and show my creative writing in a small way.

Writing a book is difficult. Writing a good book is even harder. Crafting a coherent story is more than putting words on a page and naming a character, and there is a decent amount of finesse that you have to pick up and practice. Writing a story requires time, brain w...

One of the questions you may find yourself asking when beginning a story is “should I outline?”

That depends on you.
