Day 3: Writing Tools

3-2-1 WRITE! party

Well, I’ve talked about it enough you might guess what my number one resource for writers is, but I’ve no problem with saying it again.

Kingdom Pen!

Kingdom Pen is a website, but it is so much more than a website too. For starters, don’t let the ages of the writers posting there fool you. There is so much great information posted every week, along with poems and the occasional short story.

Secondly, Kingdom Pen has a newsletter they send out every week. We link articles and mix plenty of humor with writing contests.

And there is the forum! A place where young Christian writers are able to congregate and discuss things from cliché bender to the morality of lying during wartime or assassination to the pros and cons of magic. With some writers who have been working for years, and others just starting up, you can get help and advice for almost any problem you might have. And don’t get me started on the number of running inside jokes we have.

Finally, last but not least, the products. They have the most awesome course open right now. Theme Mastery… go check it out. Don’t get the wrong idea due to the comparitive young age of those who put it together (or those who run Kingdom Pen in general). It is very professional. I went through it and it was shocked at how much I didn’t even realize I didn’t know. I learned so much and firmly believe ever Christian writer ought to take it unless they have complete confidence on their mastery of theme.

There you have it. Kingdom Pen, guys. And most of it is free. Click here to check it out!

  1. I just bookmarked Kingdom Pen. It sounds great! I’m a member of a certain other writer’s forum and while I can find excellent *general* writing advice and support there, it’s a secular forum and I can’t get spiritual support or ask for Christian-specific/biblical-based advice there, if you know what I mean. They actually do have part of the forum dedicated to Christian fiction same as they have boards dedicated to all other genres, but the CF board isn’t very active, and with some of the people that supposedly write “Christian Fiction” and post there occasionally…well, let’s say I’ve questioned what exactly their definition of Christianity is. (When I see a person complaining that they tried to submit their book to a Christian publishing house and were annoyed when they got a rejection saying, “Sorry, we don’t publish erotica,” and the other posters proceed to sympathize and say they’ve had similar experiences, it’s clear that I have starkly different standards from the majority of them.) So, yeah, I generally don’t bother with that part of that forum or asking anything spiritual at all. It will be GREAT to have a legitimately Christian forum, like Kingdom Pen, to visit.

    • Yes, Kingdom Pen is great. We’ve had conversations ranging from the morality of assassination and lying during war to the place of magic in writing to general writing tips and discussions.

    I’ve never heard of that before! I’ll have to check it out. Sounds like a great place to connect with others too. Thanks for sharing about it. 🙂

  3. I used to follow Kingdom Pen and even participated in their story contests. I am too old for that now, but I still get their emails.

    *sidenote* What writing tracker did you use for the sidebar if you don’t mind me asking? I have been looking for one that will work with wordpress, but haven’t found one yet.
    Blessings!

    • Yes, the information is great, though I only ever took part in one contest.

      The writing tracker is a widget plugin called MyBookProgress.

  4. I’ve heard a lot about Kingdom Pen, but only have so much time to read things, so I haven’t taken the time to go over there. Thanks for sharing more about it, though.
