Writing can be a lonely calling.  The hammering out of words on keys.  The editing, the honing, the writing again.  It’s laborious and lonely.  So there’s nothing like doing it together with a team of those who are also called to write.

Cheering each other on when we get published, when we’re featured as a guest poster.  Reassuring each other after a critical comment or when someone completely misunderstood the words we labored over so long.

Spurring each other on as we better our skills.  Promoting each other rather than just ourselves.  Helping each other attain greater heights. 

Together, because of Him.  Writing, for His glory.

Here’s to my teams—the YLCF Team and the Ladder Bloggers mastermind group.  I’m so thankful I get to do this with you; thanks for sharing your passion and your prayers.   And thanks to the better half of my primary team: thanks to my husband for still reading my words after all these years, and for loving me regardless of the comments and the stats.

  1. Hi,
    I totally agree with you. I work with a Canadian Christian writers’ group called The Word Guild and belong to another called Inscribe. These are the people who cheer me on, pray with me and sustain me through the writing process. Of course God is my best encourager and I try to remember to write for One.
    Blessings on your writing,

  2. Hear! Hear! The only way we can do anything in life is through community, it is how He created us.

    Thanks to you, also, Gretchen.
