Writing tips from C.S. Lewis

Found this link at Tim Challies site.

These are tips from C.S. Lewis on writing with commentary by David Hughes.

Here’s an except of one that spoke to me:

4. Write only about things that interest you. If you have no interests, you won’t ever be a writer.

There is genius in these words. Too many Christian writers compose their literary work out of a sense of divine obligation, a quest for profit or a deadline–rather than pure godly passion.  Obligation, profit or a deadline often debase passion, but of course it is nice when all three elements can be combined. Sacrifice them all if you must–except for your passion for those things which interest.
