Since I have the honor of kicking off Fiction Wednesdays, I thought I'd address a question we writers hear a lot... Can you really make a living doing that? Okay, that's not the real question. (Although one of my doctors did ask me that exact thing recently.) Here's the real question... Why do you write fiction?
Fiction entertains. Fiction moves the heart and engages the mind. Fiction convicts the soul and teaches eternal truths. In fact, fiction was one of Jesus' most often used tools. Remember these stories...
- The three servants and the talents (Matthew 25:14-30)
- The farmer who sowed seed in different kinds of ground (Matthew 13:1-23)
- The five foolish virgins and the five wise virgins (Matthew 25:1-13)
- The unmerciful servant (Matthew 18:21-35)
