Wisdom Wednesday: Michelle De Bruin

I’m sorry for the delay in my Wisdom Wednesday post! Sometimes, life does not always go as planned, especially when your daughter inherited your balance skills, or rather, the lack thereof. I spent the majority of the day at the doctor for her sprained ankle. They do not think it’s broken, but we have to wait for swelling to go down for another checkup on it.  She’s in a walking boot and it’s still hurting some, but she is doing better!

This week, our guest is author Michelle De Bruin. Thanks for joining us, Michelle.

Name: Michelle De Bruin

Genre: Historical Christian Romance

Upcoming Novel: Hope for Tomorrow 

Writing Tip: 

Read as much as you write. Become familiar with what others in your genre are doing. Stay informed on current events and world happenings. Choose a trusted voice in non-fiction to read for your own growth and spiritual formation.

This is my favorite tip because it keeps me in relationship with fellow authors. It helps me stay sensitive to people’s deepest needs, and it encourages me as I continue on my own faith journey.

Great tips! I’m always amazed at people who say that want to write but do not like to read. Reading is a must to stay updated in the industry and to learn the craft.

Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers: 

Take the time and make the effort to find and develop your own voice. Not necessarily the voice that is heard when you speak, but the one that is felt when you begin to put words on paper. It belongs to you and is the unique gift the Lord gave you to share your faith experiences. Over time, a new writer will have much to offer if they follow the tip above and then share how they are learning and growing through the blessing of their own voice.

If you’re genuine with your voice, your readers will connect with you on a deeper level. Great tip!

Wisdom Wednesday: Amy R. Anguish

I’ve watched my fair share of cartoons and then some. With three kiddos it goes without saying, that I stay saturated in animated TV shows and movies. Gabe, my youngest, goes through phases of favorites. He just got of an Angry Bird phase, and now is in a Pokémon phase. However, for some reason, as I was getting our Wisdom Wednesday blog ready, one of the songs from Bubble Guppies popped into my head. You know the one, “What time is it?” It’s time for lunch!” the one that never seems to go away after you hear it? For some reason, I could hear the school teacher say, “What time is it?” and Wisdom Wednesday popped into my head in place of “it’s time for lunch”. It’s funny how your brain remembers things that you haven’t seen in a long time, and I definitely haven’t seen Bubble Guppies in forever, but there it was ready to pop into my head and stay there.

Or maybe, I just need to go eat lunch?

Regardless, that’s what we need to do with writing tips. Remember what others have gone through and accomplished and commit them to our memory so we can recall them when we need it.

Today’s Wisdom Wednesday is with Christian romance author, Amy R. Anguish.

Welcome, Amy!

Latest NovelAn Unexpected Legacy

Writing Tip: 

This is probably actually more of an editing tip because it seems like editing takes up so much more time than the actual writing. But, my tip is to take the criticisms you can use and use them, and throw the rest away. When my editor and I were going through Legacy, fine-tuning everything and making sure it was as strong as it could be, several times I took her suggestions and told her I thought my way was better. Most of the time, when I explained why, she might tweak it a little, but let me keep it my way. It’s my story and I didn’t want to lose that. Together, we made it stronger, but it was still mine in the end. Find an editor willing to work with you that way. You don’t want to lose your story in all the edits.

As an Developmental Editor, it is one of my goals to make sure they book stays true to the author’s ideals and goals. Yes, I make suggestions, and show strengths and weakness, but my goal is to make sure that the book comes out the strongest it can. It takes a partnership between the editor and author to do that.

Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers: 

Don’t give up. It took me years to get published (six, to be exact, from the time I wrote Legacy to when it was published). It took several years to work up the nerve to send it out, and then another to find the right publisher, and two more to actually get it completely edited and ready to go. It takes time, but it’s worth it. So, don’t give up! And when your friends and family tell you how good your story is, believe them. Somewhere out there is a publisher who will agree.

This is the key right here. If you give up, you won’t ever get anywhere. Keep writing, keep trying, and most importantly, keep growing and learning.


An Unexpected Legacy tweaked

Smoothies brought them together, but would the past tear them apart?

When Chad Manning introduces himself to Jessica Garcia at her favorite smoothie shop, it’s like he stepped out of one of her romance novels. But as she tentatively walks into a relationship with this man of her dreams, secrets from their past threaten to shatter their already fragile bond.  Chad and Jessica must struggle to figure out if their relationship has a chance or if there is nothing between them but a love of smoothies.

Confession Friday: Motivation, where are you?

It’s Friday, and while I’m looking forward to the weekend, I can’t help but stare at my computer screen and my “to-do” list with a blank, unmotivated stare. Do you ever have those days?

Confession time: this happens to me a lot.

I know, I know, I’m cringing just typing this.

But seriously, I have my motivated days where I’m editing like crazy, and I’m typing my own book so fast my fingers can’t keep up. Then there’s days like today, when I’m struggling to keep my eyelids open.

I wish I could say that being a writer comes with unlimited amounts of gumption and creativity, but that’s not the case. It definitely seems to come with a caffeine addiction, but that’s another confession for another Friday.

So what do you do when your motivation and creativity can’t be found? How do you pound out that word count anyway? Here’s five ways that help me get to typing and kicking my motivation into high gear.

  1. CHANGE OF SCENERY. Get up and get moving. Yep. Leave the computer. Take a walk, play with your kiddos outside, wash your dishes, or change out of those yoga pants and fix your hair. Do something that changes your current state and gets your mind on something positive. The key here is doing something that won’t take up hours of your day, but around thirty minutes or less. That way you can get back to the computer and get that word count finished.

  2. DO SOMETHING ELSE THAT’S CREATIVE. Find a different creative outlet and have fun. I love to do anything crafty, and have lots of hobbies that I enjoy: crochet, string art, cake decorating, and I just got a wood burning kit for my birthday. Doing other creative things energizes me and gets my creative juices flowing.

  3. SET CLEAR, MANAGEABLE GOALS. The key here is to set goals that are clear and achievable. Be honest about your goals. If you haven’t been able to finish writing a novel, break it down into smaller goals that are reachable and that you can see yourself achieving. If you have a problem with follow through, set goals that you can build off of. Don’t sabotage yourself with goals that you don’t have any intention of reaching.

  4. READ/WATCH YOUR FAVORITE BOOK OR MOVIE. For me, reading a chapter or so from one of my favorite authors that inspire me or watching an all time favorite movie inspires me to get back to my writing and completing my goals. The key here is watch or read something that inspire you, and not to bring you down. That silly Nicholas Sparks movie is probably not the best choice here. Spoiler alert—something horrible and sad always happens.

  5. WRITE ANYWAY. One thing that a writer must learn is discipline and that you need to write something every day, regardless of how you feel. If you’re drawing a blank on your story, write a blog instead or maybe a journal entry about your day. Even if you feel like it’s the most boring page you’ve ever written, that’s okay. The idea is to become disciplined to write every day, even when the inspiration isn’t there. This is the key to being a writer.

Do you have a tip to kick that motivation into gear? Share it with us, leave your comment below!

Hugs,

Erin

Wisdom Wednesday: Amy C. Blake

I apologize for the delay in posting today, but we just got home from an extended stay in Memphis at St. Jude. Our youngest had to get braces for his ankles. The chemo has caused leg pain, and he has started walking on his tip toes to try to compensate for the pain. Now his tendons are becoming tight, so this is an effort to get him to walk flat footed and make sure that he doesn’t lose any range of motion.

With all that being said, I’m glad to be home, and get to our Wisdom Wednesday interview!

Today, I have author Amy C. Blake on the blog. Thanks for joining us, Amy!


Name: Amy C. Blake

Genre: Christian suspense

Latest Novel: Tie-Dyed

Writing Tip: 

One of my favorite writing tips is to read extensively in your genre. What’s more fun than reading a novel and calling it work? Of course, there’s the added benefit of learning pacing, characterization, and story structure as you read.

Exactly! Reading is one of my favorite things to do, so it’s fun to call it work! Plus, as a Developmental Editor, I get to read a lot of books. =) 

Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers: 

Some of the best advice I can offer new writers is to learn the craft and be teachable. Study good writing books. Attend conferences. Take classes. Join critique circles and be open to what your critique partners tell you. When they offer suggestions for improvement, they aren’t being mean. They’re trying to help you improve. Be gracious in accepting feedback and work to do better.

One of the hardest things to learn when you are starting out is to accept feedback and not take it to heart. Writing is such a personal thing, and writers put their heart and soul into their works. Sometimes, it’s hard to take advice, but it’s something that we have to do in order to grow and learn.

Nat Montgomery is an expert hider. With a promiscuous, volatile addict for a mother, she has long since perfected the art of concealing herself behind humor. An art history major in Washington, DC, with an internship at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, Nat receives a nineteenth-birthday gift from her beloved grandmother, Gigi, who raised her and who died six months previously. The gift is a laptop containing time-release video clips of Gigi’s revelations about Nat’s grandfather, murdered in 1964 when he worked for a secret racial reconciliation group that met after hours in the Smithsonian museums. The murderer was never found, and Gigi’s family always believed he abandoned her and her unborn child. Knowing the hole Grandpa Bobby’s disappearance left in Gigi’s heart, Nat resolves to discover the truth of what happened to him. But when her roommate Cadence disappears after asking questions about the long-dead past, Nat fears Bobby’s killer is still a threat. Casting off her inclination to hide, Nat determines to find the person who kidnapped Cadence and who may well have killed her grandfather a half-century earlier.

Wisdom Wednesday

 

Wisdom Wednesday: Laurean Brooks

One of my favorite things to do is curl up under my comforter, open a window, and listen to the rain. There’s just something so soothing and peaceful about hearing the rain softly hitting the earth, especially if there are still leaves on the ground. The gentle swooshing of it cascading down the window, as the wind blows in a cool breeze. It makes we want to burrow under the covers and take a long nap.

Working from home, and taking care of a four year old, I don’t have much time to linger under the covers listening to the rain as I would like. There’s a mountain of laundry that needs to be taken care of, dishes to wash, books to edit, new story worlds to create. However, I did take a moment and step outside to the patio and listen for a few minutes. I know we’ve had so much rain lately, and I long for sunshine and warmth, but there’s also a nice stillness that floods over me when I listen to the rain fall.

Whether you have bright sunny weather or another rainy day like me, take a moment and read this week’s Wisdom Wednesday by author, Laurean Brooks.

I know I could use some writing wisdom to help pull me through the week!

Writing Tip: 

Always be true to your own inner voice. As new authors, we may tend to imitate established authors whom we admire. We can learn from reading and studying their techniques, but we must not “become” them. God gave to each a special gift to be used in a unique way to serve Him. Let God guide you and be yourself, if you want to honor Him.

Join book promotion sites, especially those where readers and writers meet. Promote regularly, and do not get discouraged. Rome was not built in a day. Keep your name before the throngs on social media. Interact with your readers, comment about other things besides your books and writing. Very important: (preaching to myself) Cut out time to write, daily, if possible. To borrow a slogan from a best selling author, “Your best marketing tool is your “next” book.

Great advice. We are always telling each other to read, read, read, but it’s also important to keep your writing voice yours and not someone else. 

This was actually on my “to-do” list today, to join more book promotion sites and network with other authors and readers. 

Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers: 

Do not get discouraged. When sales are down, or if we get a bad review, we sometimes want to crawl into fetal position and have a pity party. Instead, go to Amazon or GoodReads and re-read all the great reviews. Then re-read that bad review. Can you learn anything from it? If not, forget it and move on.

I’ve seen where a few mean-spirited reviewer slapped an author with an undeserving one or two star review and added scathing remarks that made no sense. I doubt they have even read the book. Ignore these people. Only God know why they do what they do. Even pray for them. We are told to, “Pray for your enemies,” and “Bless those who persecute you.” Remember: Hurting people hurt people.

I love this. We all can get discouraged from time to time, but in those moments, just remember why you wrote your book in the first place. It wasn’t for that bad review, but for all the others who enjoyed your book, and because you had a story that needed to be told.

Wisdom Wednesday: Regina Merrick

Today, I have Regina Rudd Merrick, author of Carolina Dream, and upcoming new release, Carolina Mercy on the blog for Wisdom Wednesday!

 

Name: Regina Rudd Merrick

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Latest NovelCarolina Dream

Upcoming Release: Carolina Mercy

Writing Tip: 

I am a writer, not an editor. While I try to be careful and edit as much as possible, there are things that I am not going to catch. There are even things that editors aren’t going to catch. So, if there are those irritating things that NEITHER the author or the editor might catch, what’s a writer to do?

READ IT OUT LOUD. Seriously. That’s my favorite writing tip. Yes, you feel silly when there are people around, reading to yourself. Yes, it takes longer than reading it silently.

But that’s the whole point. Reading aloud makes you slow down and look at every letter, every word, every punctuation mark, every paragraph, and every scene.

In my first book, Carolina Dream, I had worked on that puppy for over eight years. You’d think there would be no kinks left TO work out, wouldn’t you? Alas, if only that were true.

Carolina Dream had gone through my edits, my editor’s edits, the publisher’s edits, and then my edits again, when I remembered a tip I had heard somewhere – maybe from my publisher, Kathy Cretsinger? – READ IT ALOUD.

So I did.

I got to chapter three, happily reading aloud a story so familiar, I thought, that I could almost read it with my eyes closed. I started the chapter, and WHAM! I’ve read that before! I mean, RECENTLY!

I looked back, and sure enough, I had inadvertently COPIED and pasted, when I meant to CUT and paste an entire scene. The first scene in the BOOK, no less.

Wow. I literally had to change the entire first scene of the book at that point. And I learned a valuable lesson. Read it aloud at EVERY POINT.

  • Before you turn it in to your publisher, who sends it to your editor
  • Before you send it to the next editor
  • Before you send it back to the publisher
  • After you get the proof file.

That last one? That’s when I discovered my glaring error.

Don’t be me. Don’t neglect reading you manuscript aloud. In addition to catching mistakes, you get to know your story more thoroughly. I discovered that, even on the umpteenth read-through, I still liked my story!

I had a similar experience with my book, The Seer.  I read it out loud before and after each phase, and found a few things on the last read through. I think I have my story memorized by now.  😉 

Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers: 

My favorite piece of advice is this: You can’t edit what you haven’t written. So, so true. You can spend so much time agonizing over outlines, plots, character maps, etc., that you neglect the most important part of writing – THE STORY!

Happy, happy writing and editing, and thanks for having me, Erin!

I couldn’t agree more. I spent a very long time doing this. There comes a point when you to decide to write it and get it finished, no matter what. 


carolina-dream-2

Sarah Crawford wants more from life than to attend the wedding of her ex-fiancee. An unexpected inheritance in South Carolina comes at the perfect time, just as Sarah is willing to use any excuse to get out of town.

When she meets potential business partner Jared Benton and discovers that a house is part of the inheritance, she is sure that God has been preparing her for this time through a recurring dream. But will a dream about an antebellum mansion, many rooms to be explored, and a man with dark brown eyes give her the confidence to take a leap of faith, leaving friends, family, and her job behind?


RMheadshotRegina Rudd Merrick has written all her life. From the scribbling of a young child writing “I love you” notes to her mother, to the teenager who tried to write a more satisfying sequel to Gone with the Wind, she developed a distinct love of “happily ever after.” That love of fiction parlayed into a career as a librarian, and she is the former director of a small public library in Marion, KY.

She began attending local writing workshops and continued to hone her craft by writing several short and novel-length fan-fiction pieces published online. In fact, it was after writing Christian-themed stories based on a television show that ended too soon that she decided to pursue original fiction. With encouragement from some writing friends, she attended her first ACFW conference and met like-minded writers that were as concerned with building others up as with their own careers.

Regina is now an active member of the Ken-Ten Writing Group which has participants from Western Kentucky and Western Tennessee, and is currently helping to plan their second writing conference scheduled for June of 2018. She is an instrumentalist and vocalist in the music program of her church, and has participated in many areas of ministry over the years.

Married for 30+ years, Regina and her husband, Todd, have two grown daughters who share her love of music, writing, and the arts. They live in Marion, in Western Kentucky, in a county where there are, literally, more deer than people. Her hobbies include watching other people work on houses on HGTV, decorating, antiquing (otherwise known as “picking”), cooking, reading, playing music, and dreaming of the beaches of South Carolina. Her first novel, Carolina Dream, book one of the “Southern Breeze” series, was released in April of 2017 with Mantle Rock Publishing, and book two, Carolina Mercy, will release in the summer of 2018.

Wisdom Wednesday: Kathy Cretsinger

I love world building. There’s not a more exciting thing to do than creating a new story idea, characters, and the world that they live in. Right now, I’m working on a story for a writing contest and I’m having a lot of fun talking with my husband and a couple friends about plot ideas and world building. I am also finishing up editing a wonderful new book for MRP, but that will have to wait for just a little bit while we discuss Wisdom Wednesday!

Today I have Kathy Cretsinger, is the owner of Mantle Rock Publishing, (my publisher for The Seer) and writes under the name of Katt Anderson. Welcome, Kathy!

Pen Name: Katt Anderson

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Latest Novel: Smoky Mountain Brides

Writing Tip: 

Have fun with your writing, know the basics of writing. If you’re having fun, you’ll not get bogged down and have writer’s block so much.

UGH. The dreaded writer’s block. It happens to all of us, and I did have a few times where I struggled with this during The Seer. But I think Kathy is on to something here. Remember why you started writing in the first place. What drew you to write this story? If you have fun with it, the pressure seems to leave and guess what? Your creativity is back.

Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers: 

Read each agent/publisher’s submission page on their website. Learn the craft.

This is so important. Every agent/publisher has different guidelines for their submission policy. Do your research, and submit it the way they specify, don’t deviate. This will help your manuscript have the best first impression.
