Robin Jones Gunn (Advice for Novelists, Part 58)

Thanks for sticking with me, friends, as we've journeyed into the minds of some of today's top editors, authors, publicists, and agents. There's more to come! I'll continue with this Advice for Novelists series whenever possible, so bookmark this page and check back when you're in the mood to hear the responses to the question:

"If you could say one thing to aspiring novelists, what would you say?"

Today, the talented, multi-published, Robin Jones Gunn shares her answer:

Trust God in the small things. Obey Him in the most menial tasks and details. He notices. He orchestrates a very diverse universe. Be available to Him. Let Him shepherd you.

Then do what Jesus said to do. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.

--Robin Jones Gunn, author of the Christy Miller series, Sierra Jensen series, the Sisterchicks series, and more. Visit her website here.
