1 Corinthians 13:1-“The same applies to writing.

1 Corinthians 13:1



If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

Some years ago, a published author in my general area referred this verse to me. I never thought of the Bible as a portrayal to describe writing.

She said, “The same applies to writing. Even if you have the most well composed work, perfect grammar and punctuation but have no emotions. Then your work is empty. If you haven’t allowed your soul to spill upon the page then you have nothing. Emotions are what move people to read your work and remembers it. The most remembered works are those which stirs people emotions.”


She later explains that when someone read your work years later they will look for the emotions that can speak to them across time. They want to hear you speaking to them. Your work will live on far beyond your years and propel your existence into immortality.

Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    I agree. It’s the expression of language readers will look for years in your work from now. Not your grammar. Grammar will have changed. What’s the rule of the thumb now will be obsolete in twenty-fifty years from now. Even I have lived long enough to see the rule changes and see certain formats and punctuation fall to the wayside. It’s the pure expression of the soul is that which lives on.
