Here’s the Webinar! ‘Thoughts on Being a Writer’

Wow, here it is already–the “webinar” I did just the other day, organized, moderated, and edited by Andrea Schwartz, my esteemed colleague at The Chalcedon Foundation. She is amazingly efficient.

So here it is, if you can stand listening to my voice for 55 minutes (I’m not sure I can). ( )

It was a lot of fun being questioned by people who had actually read my books: in fact, it was the first time that’s happened. I hope the advice I gave these kids and teens was good advice.

    Very cool! 🙂 I’ll have to take a listen.

    Hi Lee, I just finished listening to your webinar and really enjoyed it. Although I’m a reader only, and not a writer, I found your answers very insightful and your manner very gentle and humble and your voice disarming. If I were a writer, I would pay much attention to your advice.

    And I can hardly wait for ‘The Throne’ to be published 🙂 It was also very good news that you’re working on number 10! If it hadn’t been for your contests, I wouldn’t have been blessed by The Bell Mountain Series. Having won, it set me on the path to eagerly reading every one!

      I’m always glad to see you on this page, Linda. Almost done with “The Silver Trumpet”–I hope I can get some warm weather, so I can finish it in style: outside where I belong, with birds and squirrels and a good cigar.

        I’ll be sure to pray for a few more warm days so you can write under God’s wonderful sunshine with His critters 🙂

        I always pop in and read your articles. Life’s a bit wearing these days and I haven’t been commenting much.

        You and your family are always in my prayers, kind sir.

    I’m not a teen, but I was part of the webinar and I enjoyed it (when I wasn’t stressing out about asking my questions). 😉

    I’m looking to write nonfiction, but I participated in the webinar because I’m processing in my brain a book about abuse for young children in a fiction format.

    Thank you for your time and help with the webinar!

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to
    be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I
    definitely get irked while people consider worries that
    they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
    people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

    Strangely, just yesterday, I was wondering what your voice was like. I thought that it might be a Joe Piscopo “are you from Joisey? I’m from Joisey!” voice, but your voice seems unaccented to me. It’s a kind, gentle voice, much in keeping with the narrative of your writings.
