Practical writing techniques for miraculous reality books are really quite simple—for the born-again believer, filled with God’s Holy Spirit. Yet they are fought tooth and nail, thereby requiring focus, intention, and perseverance.
The basic technique is asking the Lord to anoint your writing. Yea, it’s that simple—and that difficult. I’ve been doing this for a couple of decades now on a serious level, and began the process forty-five years ago. I know what is needed. Yet how many days do I come to myself after three, four, or more hours of writing with the stunning realization, “I’ve never asked the Lord to help yet, today.”

Yet, we are, by design, in a walk of faith. This means that what I prayed yesterday doesn’t cover today. I cannot ask Jesus to anoint my writing, and then proceed on with the assumption, “Well, that’s covered,” going on with my life, never asking the question again. I must pray today. And when tomorrow becomes today, I must pray today.
Of course, I’m assuming you know what I mean by anoint. I’m asking the King of kings, by His Holy Spirit, to do in me what He did in Isaiah, Paul, and John. Oh yea, I’m that serious. That’s what the anointing is. I am asking for wisdom, guidance, help with phrasing, help with organizing, help with sharing the reality of walking as a believer.
But, Satan and his minions throw up amazing obstacles. Sometimes, they seem major. Like last week I was really pushing hard to get a plot, a story line, for my new book. I was making progress. But I took a break to take a shower, and there was no hot water. What followed was three days of dealing with replacing the hot water heater, followed by a Sabbath [I don’t write on Sundays]. So, here I am on Monday morning, back at figuring out the story line for the first time in four days. Or, my neuropathy in my feet flares up and I can’t sleep because of the burning [happened last night]. So, I got started well this morning, about four am, but then at six thirty, I was so tired I had to go back and take a nap.
Now, I’m back at it. The key technique is to remember, “Lord, I need your help now. Give me wisdom, guidance, and technical help to write a book that will change the life of a reader.”
Just practical stuff…
He always answers that prayer, if you remember to ask.
