Whatever you do, do well.
-Ecclesiastes 9:10, NLT
It’s tempting to not do our best on a manuscript when we’re rushing to get things done. Let’s train ourselves, however, to do our best on each phase of a manuscript. Let’s take time to go back through our manuscript and polish it until it shines. Let’s keep rewriting and reworking certain passages until it’s the best we know how. Let’s take the time to properly target a publisher so our idea fits their product line like a glove. Whether it’s a manuscript for a low-pay market or a manuscript for a top publishing house, let’s do well in whatever God calls us to write.
Dear Father, as I write and work at the various tasks of writing, help me always remember that I’m working for You! -In Jesus’s name. Amen.
