Making use of the time we have now, for we have been given assurance that God will perform His word. (Jeremiah 1:11,12)

Writing Aids

Here are some quick, practical writing tips from me.  These things helped me with my writing soooo much.  Don’t worry.  There are only five and they are quite simple. Then check out my favorite writing help books below!


Books that are specifically for writers.  May these help in your endeavors! (If you are a blogger, be sure to check out WordPress tech support: http://en.support.wordpress.com/.  They have some great advice and help that will make your blogging experience easier.  Like adding a Spotify playlist to your blog.  Who doesn’t like listening to music while they are either reading or writing? 😀 )
