Ron’s Tuesday’s Tip: Successful Writing is not a Hobby

I knew nothing about writing other than I wanted to write books, novels in particular. My first step in my journey actually took place as a child. I liked to daydream and I had a good imagination. I would adopt characters from television and I would become that character, then I would fight the bad guys. I was a hero both on Earth and in outer space. But transitioning to a teenager I started writing my stories.

Everyone Has A Story

You’ve probably heard the phrase “Everyone has a story” sometime in your lifetime. I believe this is true. Most people don’t realize it, aren’t interested in writing, or don’t know how. But all of us have life experiences that can be instructive or entertaining to the rest of us.

Insights: World That Was

My very first book ever written was Refuge: The Genesis Chronicles. This book would later be incorporated into Perished: The World That Was. It was a look at the 120 years leading up to the Flood.

Announcing World of Abraham

This special announcement comes to you my readers, fans, etc. first. I have published my latest book of the World That Was series. It is called World of Abraham.

I haven’t even placed it on my website yet, but that will be soon. But for now you are the first to see this newest novel.

Expanding Your Skill Set

But there is another genre that I enjoy reading. That is Christian Science Fiction. You might think that is a conundrum, but have you read the Left Behind series? Aside from being Bible based these books also involved futuristic science. In fact, Christian Science Fiction can involve history pre-written (prophecy), history, and science.

Insights From World of Shem Part 6

For example, in developing Shem I had to make sure that his character was consistent with the historical and biblical known facts. I also took into consideration tradition.

Insights From World of Shem Part 2

The cover is one of the most important items a writer needs. And often it is approached almost as an afterthought. But it is what first captures the potential buyer’s eye.

A Look At World That Was

Writing these novels is far more than an exercise in imagination. Much research has already taken place and more will be required. While time consuming and tiring, it is well worth the effort.

Announcing World of Shem

I love to write, but there is something special about writing Bible based stories. I think the reason is that the stories not only bring the Bible alive to readers but to myself as well. In so doing I am able to dig deeper and gain an understanding of the events and people. And of God!
