In writing workshop today, the students tell one another where they needed more as they read the stories. More setting? More characterization? More tension? More of a written voice with advanced grammar? More vivid verbs?
Where do you need more? What do you need more of? What needs to change?
I love the question in considering how to form both a beautiful written draft and a well-composed life. And I love that what we most need more of is God. It’s worth asking where in our lives we need Him more. I love, too, that God responds to this desire; He “gives the spirit without limit” (John 3).
What I most need is Him. Where do I most need Him? I think of the areas of parenting most of all today!
