Welcome to Writing for Christ Melanie Dickerson, it is great to have you here! So you’re a writer? What made you decide to start creating characters and story world?
Hi, Casey! I actually started writing again—I say ‘again’ because I wrote two novels and lots of short stories and poetry in high school and then quit when I started college—because I was looking for a job where I could stay home with my kids. As soon as I started writing again, I was hooked. I knew it was what I was meant to do.
What is the one title that has significantly impacted your life?
I think Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers really made me see certain situations in a more grace- and mercy-filled light. It is a powerful story of love.
If you could get a do-over when it came to learning this whole thing called writing, what would you go back and tell yourself?
I would tell myself not to quit writing after high school. I wasted 15 years! Just kidding, sort of, but I wish I had continued writing in my spare time and had continued learning about writing and publishing.
5 preference questions:
Homemade or take-out? Homemade. I love to cook (when I have time)
Email or snailmail? Email
Online shopping or Black Friday deals? Online shopping!
Books or movies? Both!
Note-taker or memorization? Neither? :-)
Yes, I’m asking you to play favorites…which of your books is your favorite, published or unpublished? And if this is your debut novel, has your favorite been published yet?
I think it might be The Merchant’s Daughter. I put a lot of emotion into writing that book!
Places for readers to learn more about you?
Facebook. I’m always on facebook! I have a personal page and an author page, and I love interacting with people on both.
Thank you for being with us today!
