Marji Laine: Faith~Driven Fiction

. . . Authentic and Intense

My Journey So Far . . .

>Wow, it’s only been about a couple of weeks since I felt that God wanted me to take my writing seriously and I’ve learned so much.

  • I’ve figured out how to write a query and follow the rules while still making it (well, hopefully) intriguing.
  • I’ve realized that rewrites are more than a necessary evil, they are just going to be part of my daily life!
  • I’ve learned that if I can tell my story to an 11 year old, I can write a synopsis.  I’ve got a pair of those to help me with that!
  • I’ve proven that I can’t write with music or TV blaring and when my dogs are in the house, just forget it!
  • I’ve learned that my writing just doesn’t quite measure up unless I allow my Lord to take an active part in what I’m doing.

I still have a lot to learn, though, most of which I don’t even know I need to know, yet.  But I’m walking this path with a Guide!  I look forward to meeting other authors, soon, at local meetings and I’ll likely learn more of what I should already know, then.

In the meantime, I’m gonna do a little reading.  Good literature is the best teacher and I’ve downloaded several newly published novels to try out!

Author: Marji Laine

Marji is a homeschooling mom with teenage twins left in the nest. She spends her days transporting to and from volleyball, teaching writing classes at a local coop, and directing the children’s music program at her church. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.
