Writing and Sundays
I have to admit that posting on Sundays has been one of the greatest challenges here on this blog because of how we feel about keeping it holy.
Before, I was able to post about technique, experience, queries and so on. But, if I really think about it, it's not Spiritually uplifting or brings you closer to the Lord.
So, how do I do both?
I'm not sure, but I'll have to revamp my thought process.
One thing that does come to mind is writing on Sundays. This would include editing or self-help books on improving your craft.
Even though I am not a published novelist as of yet, I feel it is only right to NOT edit or write for myself. Why? Because it is my intention to be published and my previous labor into it is what will bring me to that point. If I do this on Sundays, then that means that I broke the Sabbath to achieve my goal as a paid writer.
So what I will do is service to others. I will critique friends' work on this day with a prayer before and with a prayerful heart.
How do you feel about writing and Sundays?
