#19: Writers' Devotions To Go - LeAnn Campbell

(Affiliate link)



LeAnn Campbell uses the book of Proverbs as a guidebook for writers. Every chapter has one or more nuggets of wisdom to motivate writers. There is guidance for perfecting your craft, choosing words carefully, and handling criticism. Listening to instruction, dealing with rejections, and working diligently instead of acting like a lazy sluggard—Proverbs covers it all. Proverbs 19:2 (NIV) could be a motto for writers: It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way. 

Writers’ Devotions to Go covers all this and many more situations that writers face. It includes web sites for contacting writers’ organizations, suggestions for writers who want to establish local groups, guidelines for critique groups, and web sites to determine whether information you get over the Internet is the truth or a hoax.

Review:
I don't claim to be a writer, per say, but I do have a keen interest in it and write poetry. I would like to tell my own story one day though, and that propels me.
I figured a book such as this one would give me some extra tips or tools, as well as connecting it to my Christian beliefs. Which it did.
While I enjoyed reading the stories, I felt I learned the most from each writing assignment. They were at the end of each devotional. This is where I learned what style of writing I have and ways to improve it. It was very beneficial for an amateur like myself. More experienced writers may feel differently, but I think it's a useful book for any writer.


4/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
