Seeds of Truth – Psalm 32:8

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you and watch over you.

Psalm 32:8, NIV

How has God instructed you? How did He teach you in the way you should go? How has He counseled you? How has He watched over you? How has He used other people to do these things? What have you learned? How did it change you?

How can you use your story/insights in a personal experience piece? In a how-to article? How can you use this verse in fiction? In poetry? In a devotion? How can you use it in writing for children?

  1. Creative writing is any writing that goes outside the bounds of normal professional , journalistic , academic , or technical forms of literature, typically identified by an emphasis on narrative craft, character development, and the use of literary tropes . Due to the looseness of the definition, it is possible for writing such as feature stories to be considered creative writing, even though they fall under journalism, because the content of features is specifically focused on narrative and character development. Both fictional and non-fictional works fall into this category, including such forms as novels , biographies , short stories , and poems . In the academic setting, creative writing is typically separated into fiction and poetry classes, with a focus on writing in an original style, as opposed to imitating pre-existing genres such as crime or horror . Writing for the screen and stage— screenwriting and playwriting —are taught separately, but fit under the creative writing category as well.

  2. I’m so glad that you were inspired, Ellen. I hope this helps on your writing journey and you can turn your answers to the questions into writing that touches others.


  3. You have left much to think about in your questions and answers come flooding in too fast to sort through. I would like to sift through the thoughts and answer some over time. Thanks for the inspiration.
