Racing the Rain Again

It looks like the wind from heaven is about to blow some heavy rain our way, so I’d better get out there and write what I can before it rains.

When Ellayne shinnied down the vine into “the cellar beneath the cellar,” she had no idea what they were going to find down there. I know how she felt: the book I’m writing now, The Wind From Heaven, is very much like that. Follow where the spirit leads you and see what you can find.

Monday I was totally at an impasse, had to stop writing for the day because I had no idea, no idea at all, what Lord Chutt was going to do in response to the position in which he found himself (all his own fault, I might add). Tuesday I came out, said a prayer for guidance, lit my cigar–and botta-bing, botta-boom! It just came out of my pen, that chunk of the story, as if it had been there all the time.

I ask the Lord to give me the story He wants me to tell, and so far He has–through twelve books, going on thirteen.

  1. The Lord has certainly blessed you very much, and we will see what the next blessing brings. Have a great day.

  2. I just remembered a very nice worship song that you might like: In His Time, one version on youtube has some very pretty nature scenes too.

  4. Paul McCartney has said a lot of his songs just come to him, many in dreams, which may be similar to how some writers create. In fact, McCartney now has a children’s book out called “Grand Dude,” the name his grandchildren call him. I’ve heard some speculate that tunes for songs are already in the air, so to speak, and composers just tune them in.
