Reading and Writing like a Catholic

+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.

A Journey – Part 36

A Journey, my latest WIP
