Free Writers’ Devotional Book to Motivate You!

I’ve been cleaning out my bookcases this week, and I discovered 22 copies of the book, Writers’ Devotions to Go: Meditations from Proverbs, by LeAnn Campbell!

About this book:
LeAnn Campbell uses the book of Proverbs as a guidebook for writers. Every chapter has one or more nuggets of wisdom to motivate writers. There is guidance for perfecting your craft, choosing words carefully, and handling criticism. Listening to instruction, dealing with rejections, and working diligently instead of acting like a lazy sluggard -- Proverbs covers it all. Proverbs 19:2 (NIV) could be a motto for writers: It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way.

Writers’ Devotions to Go covers all this and many more situations that writers face. It includes web sites for contacting writers’ organizations, suggestions for writers who want to establish local groups, guidelines for critique groups, and web sites to determine whether information you get over the Internet is the truth or a hoax. With thirty devotions, Bible verses, prayers, and writing assignments, you’ll receive a month full of writing motivation!

This purse-sized (4"x6"), 128-page paperback sells for $8.95, but I will send it FREE to the first 22 people who e-mail their full name and mailing address to me at smhparent [at] hotmail [dot] com with “Writers’ Devotions” in the subject line. (U.S. residents only please) I’ll send a quick e-mail reply if your book is on the way. If you don’t hear from me, assume I already gave out all 22 copies. Enjoy!


  1. This sounds like a great read for me! I have a book stuck in my head, and I love finding motivation to get the words down on paper. Thanks!

    1. Dorothy, I hope you're able to move your book idea from your head to the computer! Reading about writing always helps me, too. When I was putting together my most recent book, "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Writers," I was amazed at how reading the stories really got me excited about finding the time to write. I wish you all the best!

  2. Thank you so much! I have such a hard time Susan getting motivated to do devotions. A lot of that has to do with my disability and how hard it is to get up in the morning to be able to get out of bed and walk around. And then I get caught up in all the items for the day and night. I want to be alert when doing this and that is not in the morning (sorry Bible for not following you in the morning like your Word says!)

    1. Hi Carolyn! Morning is not my best time either. Reading would probably just put me back to sleep! I think we should do devotions (or Bible reading) when we're most likely to be alert, whether that's in the evening or taking a break in the afternoon or while we eat lunch. Any time spent with God is good!
