#9:  Stay amazed by the creative process in which God has allowed you to take part.

#8:  Realize that writing is a privilege not to be taken lightly.

#7:  Be diligent to keep yourself humble & teachable.

#6:  Approach writing as a ministry instead of a hobby.

#5:  Recognize the responsiblity that comes with being a “steward of story” who is entrusted with the power of words.

#4:  Take time to be a blessing to other writers.

#3:  Embrace contentment while pursuing excellence.

#2:  See Writing as an act of worship.

  1. Good reminders–thank you, Larry!

  2. I like many of these – especially #5. One of my favorite Biblical phrases is “stewards of the mysteries of God”. Stories are certainly mysteries to convey with care.

    Thanks for the post.
