Are you trying to discover your place in the writing universe? Where will your passion intersect with your audience’s needs? How do you know if you are onto an idea that you should push forward with? 

These are the kind of questions that are discussed every week in the Red House Writer’s Collective, and this week Kathi and Roger Lipp are back with part two of their recent training session on discovering your niche as a writer. Listen in to learn how to:

  • Test your direction in order to strengthen your ideas
  • Overcome your fear of commitment with the 5 Second Rule
  • Break your goals down into manageable steps

There is a time to push forward, a time to build what you have, and a time to let go. Want to gain some more insight and input on how to balance these aspects of your business or ministry? Consider joining the Red House Writer’s Collective, which will be open for membership later this year. Send us a message to be notified when the Collective opens.

Also, it’s not too late to join the Writing at the Red House with Kathi Lipp Facebook group as we continue to write for 30 days with a goal of producing 10,000 words. No mercy. Hang out with us during the month of October to receive daily reminders to get those words onto the page! You will come away with a boost to your writing career and new friends in a community of like-minded Christian writers.

No sign up needed, simply go to the page here and tell them, “Kathi sent me!”
