“Doubt is an emotion, belief is a choice.” ~Angie Smith
My husband and I decided it would be fun to get away for a few days and head up north to the Wisconsin Dells. During the four days we spent there, we did a little shopping and I found a wonderful little book called, “The Writer’s Devotional – 365 inspirational exercises, ideas, tips & motivations on writing.” Written by, Amy Peters.
One of the first things that I noticed when I picked up this book was the fuzzy cover. It’s nicely bound in a suede like material and includes an attached ribbon for bookmarking pages. It’s a hardcover book, with cardstock thick pages and the binding is top notch.
So often when I sit down to write, I feel distracted and need something to sort of settle my mind. It’s sometimes hard to really focus on anything when the kids are yelling at each other in the background. This little book provides me with a short daily devotional which focuses on writing, and it really does help me get into the “writing mode.”
Each day of the week includes different categories, which offer motivational support for people who like to write. Here is the weekly breakdown:
Monday – Writers on writing
Tuesday – Motivation
Wednesday – Writing class
Thursday – Editing
Friday – Biography
Saturday – Books writers should read
Sunday – Writing Prompt
If you’re looking for a devotional which takes less than a couple of minutes to read through each day, I would highly recommend this great little book. If nothing else, it will perhaps set the mood for you to write or give you an idea about what to write about. And isn’t that a writer’s biggest challenge sometimes? 😉 ~M
