Breathe life and emotion into your character. Become your character.
Convey your characterís world: If your character feels it, then your reader feels it.

Express faith in God somewhere in every piece. Remember Godís Word will last forever.

Go sentence by sentence, picturing the scene through the mind of your reader.
Have one clear message shining from God through you to your reader.
Ignite your readerís curiosity in the opening: Grab your readerís attention!

Wait on the Lord: always finish your piece with a strong conclusion.
Xerox copying of another FaithWriterís work into your piece is not wise.
Your reader will thank you in eternity: Itíll be worth it all! Be
Zealous therefore: write as if this were your last piece.
