How many stories?

I have a problem. I can’t stop imagining stories that tell me that they need to be written.

My latest idea is different from anything I’ve written before. So different that I know I can’t do it alone. I’ve contacted my pastor son for help and he agreed to see if we can do it.

The stories that keep bubbling up in my mind are centered around angels that are out to save souls and the demons that are equally determined to lure them to — you know where they want those souls to go! And it’s mostly about the people whose souls are caught in the middle of this battle, this forever war.

Which is why my working title for the series is ‘Soul Wars.’ That might change, of course, but it’s a good label for now because it’ll keep me on track.

I can write the story. That’s easy. But when it comes to the biblical stuff, I must admit that I get lost. I never was that fluent about biblical things. So that’s where my son comes in. Being a pastor, knowing a lot about the Bible is part of his job.

So I asked if he can look things over and add whatever he feels should be added. Or subtracted. He’s written a few books so I know he’s competent in that regard and I figured that since I’m his mom he can’t say ‘no’ because no one can say ‘no’ to their mother.

Right?

Anyway, when I’ve finished the three books I’m contracted for right now, I’ll start writing about angels and demons and the ongoing war for souls. And if things go right, stories will pour forth.

The first book that wants to be written will be based on the story of the prodigal son and will be taking the bare outlines of the Bible story and updating it to today.

What do you think? Are those pesky characters screaming to be written about of any interest to today’s readers?

    Sounds very good to me Florence, I think we all fight those battles here on this earth for sure! You let the stories pour out ! 🙂 God is putting these stories in your mind because He knows we need to read them . And you are correct, it’s very hard to tell a mama No, when we ask for or kiddos help, and I am so glad to hear that your son can help you a lot with this book since he is a pastor. God Bless you . Have a Great weekend my friend. I always enjoy reading your posts.
