Your article nails it on so many levels!
I am reminded of the words of Jesus:
19 And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. 20 All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed.…[Read more]
Here are my guesses:
1) Name: Nasrin, Dulcina, Humra, Rhodia, Varda, Wardah? (Each of these are a floral-related names since the picture seems to indicate them prominently.)
2) Age: 18-23
3) Career/Role in Story: Possibly the MC. She may sell flowers in the marketplace. I’m thinking of an open-air bazaar or some…[Read more]
I would love your thoughts on my WIP.
How do we connect? My first two novel drafts are online at my WP site.
I am willing to do the same for your WIP.
Please let me know how best to contact you.
I am interested in beta reading for you, but was wondering if you could do the same for me as well.
I have the first two novels of a trilogy drafted and posted out on my WordPress site.
Not sure how to connect using this forum.
Can you reply here and perhaps we could exchange email addresses?

Hi @Elisha Starquill
That is an interesting premise. My wife was born in Russia but is a US Citizen now.
The prevailing “Church” in Russia, even post-Communism, was the Russian Orthodox Church, but there were a few “Protestant/Evangelical” Churches that exist. Often certain denominations filter their representation of God through their…[Read more]
I am intrigued by your idea and premise.
I had once thought to write something similar, but only got to a certain point before changing direction.
There is one statement made in the 5th paragraph, I wanted to ask you about.
“The Spirit is perhaps the purist aspect, being the intangible soul, the core of an entity that knows itself and…[Read more]
Love this article and totally agree!
I do need to add that any writer attempting theophany should have a deep and daily fellowship with their Creator, including prayerful openness to the guidance of His Holy Spirit.
Teach me to do Your will, For You [are] my God; Your Spirit [is] good. Lead me in the land of uprightness. [Psalm 143:10…[Read more]
I am new to the group, but have been interested in and reading Sci-Fi for a quite a long time. Finding trouble locating too many books in this genre with a biblical worldview, so I am very glad fellow Christians are taking the genre back.
I have recently been listening to some lectures by an Australian scientist by the name of…[Read more]
Totally get it. You are not alone and have friends here on this side of the mountain. Praying for you. May the Greatest Writer, the Author and Finisher of our Faith give you rest, comfort and confidence.
This was in my morning devotional, and it was a comfort to me, as I hope it will be a comfort to you.

No need to apologize for anything. Believe me, I understand how life outside can intrude, and often it does so by necessity.
I wish I could commit to more regular time, but it varies with me between an hour, maybe two per week. I am between two cities: where I live and where I work, and I have an 80 minute commute twice a week, and a 45 m…[Read more]
Wow. That is hard to determine where any cues might come from because it shifts too many story threads into random directions. Not sure still if I can get a gender decision on the brief part where the Water Sprite shows up. Do you have a backstory in mind for the Water Sprite? That might give you a better idea of which traits might lend…[Read more]
Great ideas! I love the concepts advanced here.
One thing I hesistate to mention, since we are still in concept, but I thought I’d throw it out there.
Think of a story as an Arrow. Every arrow has a point, so too every story should have a message that is being driven towards a target.
Imagine, if you will the components of an A…[Read more]
Thank you @steward-of-the-pen,
You’ve provided some brilliant and thoughtful responses. I am thrilled to be in this Guild with you.
May the Lord continue to bless you in your gift and life.
I have noticed over the years that novels and stories that set a good pace usually begin with a good hook line–A good opening sentence that generates intriguing questions in a reader’s mind and an early introduction to the conflict of the story. As a reader, I am a sucker for a good hook line.
Here are three opening examples, by a best-selling…[Read more]
Thank you Catherine @writercatherine,
It is a pleasure to meet you and become part of an exciting team of writers.
I look forward to learning with and from you all and glorifying the King together.
That is a very fine moniker you’ve chosen. Often times the practice is confused with fact gathering which is not the same.
One should never stop learning.

Hi Cassie (@cassie-hartfinh),
Great ideas! Dream sequences are hard because of the disjointed nature of them and the randomness. A vision tends to be more sequenced so that we can gather a coherent message out of it. With a dream, one can never be sure if there is a message there from the Source of All Wisdom or if it is just last night’s piz…[Read more]
