Invitation to Contribute to Idylls for the King

I’ve been asked to be a contributing author for a new Christian Literary Journal started by one of my fellow bloggers, Eden Ellis. Really, Eden doesn’t need anyone contributing to her blog because she is a terrific and thoughtful writer. But she wanted to create this online Journal where a group of bloggers could all post poems, song lyrics, and short stories. Although I do occasionally post a poem here on my blog, I don’t write song lyrics myself and seldom write fiction. And I don’t think fiction would fit into my blog here. So I decided to take Eden up on her invitation.

Please visit this wonderful Christian Literary Journal, called Idylls for the King. My first contribution, a short story called “Finding the Way Home,” was posted today. I look forward to seeing what other contributors add to this blog, and to what other short stories the Lord leads me to write and contribute.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. How wonderful for you to put up a post about it! You are so right . . .Eden could fill a blog with her wonderful writing and we would love it, just like that! How gracious of her to give us all a place to share work that God gives us, that might not fit on our blogs . . .or for those who don’t blog. 🙂
    You might be surprised at what comes out of you, Linda! 🙂 ha! I joined a writing project last year. We were to write for 24 days of the month of August , something each day, and then revise for the last 7 days, reporting in and sharing our work if we wanted. I thought I would mostly write poems, because that’s what I mostly do. Instead I was intrigued and came up with some short fiction, prose poems, twitter length poems and fiction . . .all kinds of things I’d never done before. It was fun! Not saying they were good . . .and I was in with really good writers who got their work published . . .but it was a growing time and fun! ha!
    God bless you and all the places He leads you!
    love, deb

    • Deb, I don’t know how I’m going to keep up daily posts here and contribute to Idylls for the King, but I guess there’s no pressure to how often I post there. Whenever the Holy Spirit gives me a story, I’ll type it up and submit it. It will be interesting to see where this new adventure goes! Peace, Linda

      • You’re absolutely right . . .no pressure to post there all the time. Just whenever God moves us to. I did ask Eden about that, if we should wait so many days to submit more or not. She said to go ahead and submit whenever we want. She will let others come before us before posting something more from us. 🙂 Thanks for being willing to join in on this!
