    Thank you, Kaci. I agree, and I do feel that writing is my reflection of the light God is shining on me.
    Just this morning Isaiah 60:1 (Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. ) jumped out at me – underlining again that any light I have is merely my reflection of God.
    Writing that reflects God is such an honor and privilege – it’s no wonder I felt all out of sorts yesterday when I didn’t get to write anything except my to do list!

  2. Excellent post…how true that we as writers have an unique responsibility to reflect the Character and Person of Christ Jesus in our writing. What an awesome and frightening privilege. Bravo on bringing me back as a writer to the one needful thing – to glorify God.

    Writers who are faithful to their gifts will honor the Lord through their fiction. I like what you said about scraps of light…..wherever Light is darkness must flee and if writing is filled with little rays truth the light will shine out.

    Can’t talk long: Real quick though, thanks to whoever added tags/categories for me. Also, I changed the title, as the discussion led me to realize the post is saying the opposite of what the title says. 0=)

    More later. Much love, and thanks for commenting.

  5. […] folks over at Speculative Faith posted a blog about authors being a cut above Frankenstein. It’s a good read, if you want to check it out. […]

    Maybe I’ll share this with my mom next time she wants to know how my WiP with multiple martyrs is glorifying to God. Because there is hope at the heart, even if most of it is dark.

    Sorry for never getting on this one. Lovely comments. 0=)

    Galadriel, I suggest Safely Home by Randy Alcorn. It’s beautiful. Based on true circumstance, I think.

    Nonfiction titles, all available from Voice of the Martyrs:
    “Tortured for Christ”
    “The Persecutor” (though, that one might be hard to find)
    “Hearts on Fire”
    Into the Den of the Infidels

    I’ve got another one that’s about a girl in China, but I have to dig it out to get the name.
    I should warn you, I could only read a few chapters at a time.

What do you think?
