Daily Devotions for Writers

compiled and edited by Patricia Lorenz
The Writing Academy, 2008

This collection of 366 devotionals contains true stories about the challenges and delights of writing, and offers a daily encouragement, short prayer, and inspirational quote to help writers as they journey along. Though some entries were better written than others, I still thought the book worthwhile overall. In reading the experiences of others who pursue the craft, one finds hope that one's words can mean something to others, that one's words will reach the right readership, and that publication is possible despite the obstacles.

A good gift for the writer in your life or to treat yourself.

Interesting! I'd like something like this, except... my track record with "devotional" books hasn't been very good! o_O Sounds like something I could recommend to others, however.

I might take a look at this one.
