+JMJ+ I’m always trying to learn more about writing and I learned a lot while writing the rough draft that I posted on the blog recently. But I have not even scratched the surface of all there is to know about writing, especially about writing a Catholic novel. I wish I’d found this interview before I started writing. Maybe it’s better that I found it after I wrote. Who knows? Maybe you or someone you know would enjoy watching this interview, too. Notes and links are at the end of this post.
Video, Full video, Can a Novelist “Create” a Saint? – Interview with Joshua Hren, Catholic Culture Podcast #113
Video, Is realism in modern fiction an aberration?, Interview with Joshua Hren, outtake from Episode 113
Thanks for visiting the blog and reading (and for your prayers, too, my back is getting better, I can almost stand up now). I pray that you and I will stay holy and virtuous, and help each other to become who the Lord intends us to be: SAINTS. God bless you and may His Peace be always with you. +JMJ+
