Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. ~ Romans 8:28 ~

IWSG January 4 Question


Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
~ Anonymous ~

(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
~ 2 Corinthians 5:7 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well. Thank God, we’re blessed to see another day. Wahoo, it’s the first Wednesday of the month where we share stuff. (wink)

January 4th Question: What writing rule do you wish you’d never heard? To be honest, most of them. For me, writing rules are great as a guide but……

Rules can take away “the write it, like you say it”. I like writing when I can experiment with injecting clean humor and fun metaphors.

Sharing thoughts, in our own style, is powerful for confidence; yet bring a pins and needles thought, what if no one likes it?

So what is my mantra today. Write anyway. (wink) It’s quite liberating and powerful self-encouragement.

Thank God, I have a paying day job. (whew)

Yes, I’m still learning and growing as a writer; someday, by faith, all those writing rules will come together, just not today. (smile)

Stay encouraged and keep the faith.

Abundant blessings, my friends because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)
