Find Your Why by Brenda J Wood

Find Your Why by Brenda J Wood

Find Your Why “Why do we write?” moaned my writing pal. “Why do we write when there is no market for our books?” She didn’t really like my answer and I guess I didn’t really like giving it either. “We write because God asks us to use our gift and our gift is writing.” You guessed it.

Resurrection Writes by Brenda J Wood

Resurrection Writes by Brenda J Wood

Resurrection Writes Do you have piles of old manuscripts previously rejected by you, your mother, or an agent? Don’t stuff them into the garbage. Instead, give them another chance by trying them out in the recycle pile. Never let them go, but instead, re-purpose them like your old jeans, which you can make into shorts, purses, aprons, or quilts. This
