An encouraging word cheers a person up.
-Proverbs 12:25, NLT

There are so many rejections and words of criticism in a writer’s world. Let’s make it our goal to spread encouraging words everywhere we go so we can cheer each other up! When we’re at our critique group, let’s mark lots of positive feedback on each other’s manuscripts. When we e-mail our editors, let’s thank them for their careful guidance. When we blog or tweet or post on Facebook, let’s share encouraging Scriptures to build up our fellow writers.

Dear God, help me be an encourager! Show me ways to encourage my writer friends. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
