If you are a Christian with a heart to write novels to encourage and inspire children in their faith, or to show non-church kids what they are missing, this little ebook of writing tips is for you.
Since becoming a publisher of Christian fiction for children and young adults, I have learnt a thing or two about stories – conflicts and resolutions, beginnings and endings, characters and dialogue, plotting and planning. I love Christian books for children and teens – I’ve seen the seeds they have sown, the lives changed. Given a Christian book, readers can think things through for themselves. Church children need to make their own decision in just the same way non-church children need to know of God’s love . . . reading a story can be a tool for the Holy Spirit to work through.
I don’t believe every writer needs to be published – these days a book can be in any format – you can make your own ebook, or even print out a copy and put it in a folder. If the story is appealing enough, the format won’t matter.
Suppose everyone who had a story in them wrote for their children, grandchildren, godchildren, nieces and nephews, missionary children, pupils, neighbours’ children, friends’ children and children’s friends? Imagine the impact!
I first wrote these 50 mini writing tips for the Write for a Reason blog. I have picked out the best and edited them. My prayer is that, simple though they are, they will inspire you to make your stories the very best they can be.
