WRITE simply

 

Psalm 116:6 

King James Version

6 The Lord preserveth the simple: 

I was brought low, 

and he helped me.


Don't be afraid to write.

Don't scare yourself.

Think simple.

Think friendly.

Think happy.

Think God.

That's how it is to start writing.

There's nothing to prove to anyone.

Just write from your heart.

Go straight to the point.

Speak in your own voice.

Don't be who you're not.

Otherwise, you wouldn't be able to pull it off.

People can smell that.

Who is your audience?

Don't forget who you're writing for.

What is your aim?

To inform?

To sell?

To persuade?

To impress?

To show off?

To put down?

To criticize?

To collect?

I hope your aim is to LOVE.

That's what this blog is for.

JESUS taught us to love.

Let's write love letters, conduct loving lectures, speaking gently as we write, or attempt to communicate.

Pretend you're writing to GOD.

Pretend you're showing God what you know.

Pretend you're presenting something to the Lord.

Let GOD be your first reader.

That ought to transform the tone of your writing.
