Could your personal and writing habits be holding you back from becoming a successful writer? Perhaps you've discovered, as have many others, that being gifted or knowing you are called by God to write is not enough to be successful at it. There comes a time when every writer must develop the gentle art of discipline - establishing certain practices, or habits, that make it easier to carry out the right and good thing. This anthology deals not so much with the technical or how-to aspects of writing but rather, with seven key areas that are seen as essential for Christian writers to succeed. They are: * Time with God * Healthy Living * Time Management * Honing Writing Skills * Crafting a Masterpiece * Submitting * Marketing The contributing writers are InScribe members. Coming from all walks of life, they write in various genres for a range of audiences. Collectively, they bring to this anthology an incredible wealth of knowledge and experience. Through fiction, poetry, and non-fiction, such as devotionals, essays, and articles, they generously share their own discoveries, success stories, and their hard-won lessons to encourage and support you on your own writing journey.
