An Encouraging Word

Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!
Hebrews 13:2 (NLT) 

My husband and I belong to a large international ministry that reaches the lost for Christ through Bible distribution. I was recently listening to a testimony by a man who came to know Christ through one of these Bibles. He said, “I don’t know where all the other Bibles went, but I know where one went. And some day, in heaven, I’m going to thank that man who gave me the Bible.” Learn more.

Critique Groups

Critique groups can be a very helpful tool for writers.

With a new year facing us, now might be the perfect time to think about starting or joining a critique group.

The first thing to do is ask before you start or join is: what is the purpose of a critique group? What do I want this group to do, or not to do? If you are already involved in one group, perhaps you need to assess what that group does for you, and decide to accumulate a different group of writers with different skills. And if you aren’t already in a group, consider what you think you need the most. Maybe you need to join two groups to meet different needs. Learn more.

Editors

We wanted to share an interesting article with you about editors.

The short answer to the above question we most often hear is this: Yes. Every book needs an editor. And while Joe gave us a nice set of tools for self-editing last week, I’d like to take a moment to answer this question on a more philosophical level.

I spend a lot of time on Facebook. And one day I floated the idea that not every writer and every book needs an editor.

That’s right. I said it. Learn more.
