Why write?

Why do authors write? Writing is hard. It requires discipline. Often there are readers who thoroughly enjoy what you have written...yet there will be a few who will critique what you have written to pieces. Should we authors let this discourage us? No. We write because we have something to say. We write because God has given us a story. We write because there are readers out there who will want to read what we have written.

Christian Fiction

I have recently read an article in World Magazine, worldmag.com, about the changes in Christian literature. I have read recent postings on message boards about how the secular world, and Christians, view Christian fiction. Some are saying that the differences between Christian Fiction and Secular Fiction are becoming less and less. Others are saying that they don't read Christian Romance because the relationship between the hero and heroine is boring. Not enough tension between the two. What do you think?

Books

Books are the food of youth, the delight of old age; the ornament of prosperity, the refuge and comfort of adversity; a delight at home, and no hindrance abroad; companions by night, in traveling, in the country. - Marcus Tillius Cicero
