From Crayon To Quill

When I first rented this book from the home-school library a few years ago, I didn't have a clue . . . though in my own eyes I was an upcoming novelist on the same level as Jane Austin. (Finding a wealth of knowlegde has a way of revealing to us how little we actually knew.) This book taught me about developing charactors, creating a plot, revising, playing on people's emotions, realting truths of God's word in a natural way, and, most of all, foreshadowing. Good examples of foreshadowing are found in all quality literature, and this single aspect seperates the good writers from those who are truely great. After discovering these literary tactics, I began to read novels not so much for enjoyment as for study; to see how they were applied by good writers, and fubbed up by mediocres. One thing which distresses me about modern reading material is the watered downess of the gospel message. Having God in your heart is all good and fine, but people need to know what that means. Let us not be afraid to offend others by speaking of the Lord. Let us not feel that his pressense in our writing is intrusive. Let us be free to do good.
