The odd things about writing...

 I want you all to just think back for a moment to the time when you began writing. It doesn't have to be your first novel or anything fancy, but when you  began to scribble down thousands of small half page stories with pictures for your parents. Do you remember how it all began? Now, that you are thinking about his try to remember what you wrote about. Most likely it was about childhood dreams of flying to the moon or something else that had caught your attention. 
 Have you ever though of using these ideas for one of your books that you are working on today?  Now this is a bit of a harder question for you, but if you look into the Bible in 1 Corinthians 13: 11 you will see an interesting verse to relate to. 

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.

So what exactly does this have to do with writing? Well, today when you are writing do you ever think about those stories and how you wrote them right off the top of your head like that *snap*? No, because you were a child when you wrote them and now you are and adult/teen, you have different ideas up in that brain of yours. What I am saying is that you should try to think like a kid when you are writing, not in the grammatical way but in the creative and you can be sure to write extremely interesting stories.

Good post, SOTK! Jesus tells us that unless we become like children we will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. God really puts high value on children. They are sweet, innocent and some profound sayings will come from a child's mouth.

Being free and not ridgid in your writing will really help. It is like riding a horse. If you are tense you most likley will fall off, but if you relax you can ride that powerful animal even if he is bucking like a rodeo horse. :)

Great pointers!!

@Child of God,

Thanks! I spent a long time working on the post trying to figure out how to put it together and make it sound good. =)
