Kathy Tyers, Day 2

I’m not sure I have anything to add to today’s round of blog posts, except to point out Karen Hancock’s wonderful story about how she and Kathy became critique partners and walked with each other on the journey to publication, and Beth Goddard’s promised interview with Kathy. (links below)

One thing I’ve always appreciated about Kathy Tyers, though, is the article at her site that describes her journey into writing “Christian” SF—the dry period when she didn’t write anything at all because she was in the process of examining her own life. I went through a similar experience, and continue to stop and re-evaluate occasionally. (I see that she’s updated this piece just a little since the loss of her husband two years ago.)

May we all as Christians be so transparent … so honest, so willing to stop and make sure we’re really hearing the Lord’s voice and being obedient to it.

  2. Good post, Shannon. I like your transparency, too. ;-)

    I love that we have a writer like Tyers who "went before" and serves as such an example, not just of writing.
