Tweet A few weeks ago, a friend of mine was asking for advice on how to be more flirty. After she asked me this question, I started paying more attention to flirting behavior all around me. I also spoke to some guys about it to find out the kind of flirting behavior that really gets their attention. Men and women are pretty different when it comes to how they approach relationships and interpret things in general.
I keep trying to find good Christian fiction to read.
In recent weeks I read two Christian novels, one a debut, and one by a bestselling author with many titles to her credit.
Both shall remain nameless here.
I will not, as I first intended, write book reviews for them for Amazon or Goodreads, because my purpose is not to bash them or belittle their efforts. Heaven knows how difficult it is to write a novel.
Pasting such sermons onto a story does not make it a Christian novel. And note to author? Other than that, how did I like the novel? Just as bad as having a weak Christian message, is the overall poor writing demonstrated in this novel.
Here are some problem areas: He turned toward Mae Wilkey, the petite postmistress. Nor would they be able to sink fence posts in the frozen ground to build a fence.
But these are basic writing skills that are covered in Writing Christians should reclaim the arts, striving for excellence in order to bring honor and glory to God in all arenas of life.
Can I hear an amen?
Charles Darwin, who noted the same gestures in his book, "The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals," called them "submissive displays." Perhaps the first serious study of flirting was done in the 's by Dr. Irenaus Eibl-Eibesfeldt, an eminent ethologist at the Max Planck Institute in Germany. “Writing it at the start of your book will help you to clarify what it’s really about and what makes it compelling.” Go to your bookshelf and pull out a selection of books in a similar genre. In the back of the book, I put instructions to get a free special bonus chapter by visiting urbanagricultureinitiative.com and entering a secret code (it's in the book!) to get your prize - /5(18).
Sex, Death and Christian Fiction. Bad things happen to my characters. In Unclaimed Legacy, a young man dies in prison for a crime he did not commit. And by the way, he is a Christian, too.
And I bring up topics that might be uncomfortable for some Christian readers. In Unclaimed Legacy I address hypocrites in the church a recurring topic in all my books and wife abuse.
One of the characters is kept as a stud in the attic. These are horrible topics, and I try to be discreet probably more so than Rowan Williamsbut they are a part of our history, and I think the stories need to be told. Yes, I try to write honestly about human imperfection—especially in Christian humans.
Not all readers get this.
Just this morning a reader posted a review for my book Time and Again. She seems very disappointed that my main character Abby Thomas is not a dewy, perfect Christian young woman. No, Abby is like all of us. Although trying to be good Christian, she is still sinful.
And she smells bad and her greasy hair hangs in her eyes because she refuses to bathe. Something different and new instead of the same old western stories.
I am not in any way trying to claim that I have arrived as a writer of Christian fiction. Once you understand why Merrideth is the bratty pre-teen she is in the trilogy, read Once Again:Flirting is more of an art than a science, and techniques have definitely been upgraded over the years from the traditional gay cruise.
