Writing in the Wilderness
You’ve worked hard on your book, you persevered, and you’ve sought God’s favor but still it seems your writing career is going nowhere. What to do then? This workshop will focus on how to stay centered and remain faithful, what to do when your book fails to attract an agent or editor or gets published but doesn’t sell well, and how to hold on to your purpose and peace of mind when it seems like you’re wandering aimlessly in the writing wilderness.
