"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

Don't DO Something

Sometimes, acting is absolutely, positively the wrong thing to do. Despite our natural desire to fix, plan, or complain, what we really need to do is nothing. Check out my latest post in the Pentateuch Series at Exemplify to hear about one such incident in the book of Exodus. See what can happen If You Will Only Be Still.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out the other bloggers at Exemplify too - they are some wonderful writers with excellent messages for all of us.

  1. Joanne,

    I'm heading over to read the post at Exemplify, but I wanted to share that your intro reminded me of a saying I've heard before... Many say, "Well, don't just stand there, DO something." God might be heard to say, "Well, don't just do something, STAND there!"

    Psalm 46:10 is one of my faves... Be still and know that I am God!

    Hugs,
    Cheri
