One of the most common themes I hear from people who want to write is, "Where do I start?" So many people have the desire, even the calling, to write ... yet they don't know where to begin.

Rather than do a straight-up teaching episode on this topic, or having a single guest, I thought it would be fun to do a round-table discussion with a few of my writer friends to give different perspectives on getting started. This was so much fun that I've decided to do a monthly round-table format on different topics.

I'm thrilled that three good friends have been able to join me for this conversation: Eric Elder is an online pastor, author, pianist, and music producer. Mary Felkins is a novelist who released her first book last year, and Ashley Rescot is a violinist, music teacher, and short story author. Of course each of these friends is much more, but that gives you a little context for what each of them brings to the table.

In this conversation, we tackle some topics such as:

  • What would you say to someone who believes they're not a good writer?
  • How and where do get started?
  • What was a failure you have experienced as a writer, and what did you learn from it?
  • How do you stay on track with your writing?

By the way, all four of us have been participants in an online Christian writers group that Eric has so graciously been leading for the past year. In this group, you'll learn things like how to get started writing, how to make a first draft, how to edit, how to format and upload to self publish on Amazon, how to approach traditional publishers, and so on. It’s all on TheRanch.org and you can click on the online Christian writers group to watch all the episodes.
