Inspiration Overload

How do you deal with too much inspiration? In a lot of ways that's not a bad thing, but I keep having ideas for great books, but can't possibly write them all. At least not for the next few years. I…Continue

Craig, I thought of Joy in the Morning...or Joy through the Mourning...but I think there's already a book with the first title, and the second may just be too much a play on words.

Cheri, spinning off the scripture Sharon mentioned it could be condensed to something like Joy Comes in the Morning.  Another title I was thinking about was Eye of the Storm.  But I agree your first title sounds like non-fiction, and even the second choice leans towards that as well.

Cheri,

Taking it One Day at a Time, God's Way rings non-fiction to me. I love Sharon's suggestion. You could also consider just her name, Kaia. Remember, don't worry too much about your title. You're publisher will probably change it away:)

Now all you have to do is start shopping it around. Get an agent, get published, then teach me:)

OMG...I meant Lulu, not zulu! LOL!
Comment by Sharon Singley on October 12, 2011 at 4:35pm
I have actually written several short/inspirational stories that I published on zulu (nothing big, I just wanted to get them out there). I would love to see them in a chicken soup type thing!

Tamara L Barney replied, but I just saw it! Sorry Tamara!

I'm a very busy woman, but not too busy to think. I love the thought of combining the stories for The Chicken Soup For the Soul with the fiction group.

 

Feedback please? What do you all think?

Thanks all!

Thank you - I love that saying too.  Thanks for the input, Jace.

I vote for Sharon's suggestion of "The Promise".  How's that saying go ... "I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it."

Thank you Sharon.  That sounds so pretty and so appropriate for the story.  What a great suggestion.  Really helps to paint the word picture I'm trying to create.
