It never fails. When I read long passages of scripture in one sitting I always find new plots or new ideas for my “in progress” work.

My usual way of reading the Bible is a chapter at a time, or the passage from Sunday School, but when I read chapters at a time, in this case I was reading Chapters 1 -11 of 1Kings, I seem to find the new ideas. I was not reading for that purpose, though.

I read the Bible to draw closer to God.

Today I came away with the title for the sequel to my book, Absalom’s Beauty, and a plot point. The title is… drum roll please… Solomon’s Stables. I suppose  the names of King David’s sons will be a “motif” for this series.  This will mean I will have to change a character’s name in the first book, though.

I highly recommend reading the Bible for inspiration of more than just one kind.

Who can be a writer?

Anyone with a story to tell and a good title.

My nieces are writers. They dictate their stories to me. The youngest wants me to turn hers into movies. She writes horror stories at the ripe old age of five. Her latest story is called Waves of Darkness. I thought the title was brilliant(she came up with it all by herself). The story is about a monster in the waves at the beach.

My Daddy had an idea for a book he was going to write, but then he had to change the title.

The original title was Why Man Will Never Go To the Moon.

The new title is Why Most Men Will Never Go To the Moon. (Any publishers out there want to offer him a  book contract?)
