Getting started

–Start with your experience. What stories bring it to life?


–Not all of our stories will be dramatic, but many have the potential to be compelling. We like authors like Dorothy Day because she finds profundity in the everyday–she’s a storyteller, not a preacher.


–Our preparation for this project includes spending time with writing that inspires us. Check out the list at “Links and Books We Like.” As you begin to write, we encourage you to find your own sources of inspiration.

  1. I love the line about Dorothy Day being a storyteller and not a preacher. I think so much of the Christian call is to find profundity in the everyday. Another of my favorite authors is Flannery O’Conner. There is absolutely nothing preachy about her, which, I think, is what makes her writing so profound and compelling.
