August 2013: Encouragement For Your Writing Journey

"Broken and Blessed: Encouragement for Your Writing Journey"

Writing can be a lonely business. Pitfalls along the way often sidetrack even the most dedicated writers. In this session, author Elizabeth Ludwig talks about dealing with rejections, poor sales numbers, even bad reviews, and focusing on the good that God has intended. Drawing from the scriptures, Elizabeth offers encouragement and blessing to those struggling to fulfill their calling to write.

Elizabeth Ludwig is the award-winning author of No Safe Harbor, Book One in the Edge of Freedom series. Her popular literary blog, The Borrowed Book, enjoys a wide readership. Elizabeth is an accomplished speaker and teacher, often attending conferences and seminars where she lectures on editing for fiction writers, crafting effective novel proposals, and conducting successful editor/agent interviews. Along with her husband and children, she makes her home in the great state of Texas. To learn more, visit ElizabethLudwig.com.
