Most people following my blog know what a Word War is, but just to make sure, I'm going to explain it. A Word War is when a group of people get together for one hour(standard) or more, or less, so pretty much any amount of time to have a competition to see who can get the most points in the set time. Whoever wins, well, is the fastest writer. So, why have I mentioned this? I will be hosting some Word Wars every once in a while, hopefully frequently, for you guys and for myself. Also if you have noticed, one of my pages(explained a little later in this post) is titled "Word War Archives", on those pages I will be posting the winners of past Word Wars winners and their totals.
Secondly, I have recently discovered the way to put more pages on the blog. If you see directly below my banner, it should have about four links to 'The Narrowing Road', 'Word War Archives', 'Writing Excerpts and Poems', and ' Book Reviews'. They are pretty self explanatory and The Narrowing Road is just a link to the main blog. To do this, go to http://draft.blogger.com/home then go to 'new post', and then, on the right, next to 'edit posts' should say, 'edit pages', after that, I think you can figure it out. So yeah, that's a useful tool methinks.
And, lastly, a writing thought, I say thought because I myself am still just a beginning writer and I'm curious to know your thoughts as well. So this is simply a thought about writing. According to some statistics from a website(I forget which) Christian Fantasy is not a top genre on the market. As in, the general public of buying readers are not purchasing Christian Fantasy(or secular fantasy for that matter), which is pretty sad I think. Because that means that it will be harder to get my book accepted by publishers. So that is disheartening. But I believe that if the Lord has called you to write Christian Fantasy you will, by whatever means He has set in motion, get your book into the hands of the public, because the Lord is in control, nothing changes that. So, those are my thoughts on the market right now, feel free to comment on what you think.
