Faithfulness To Write + A Special Offer from Kate Motaung

About this time last year, I hopped on a Facetime call with the lovely Kate Motaung of Five Minute Friday. The first thing that struck me about her was her beautiful voice and calming demeanor. She minimized my fears about stepping out into the writing world and helped me think through my writing goals– which, by the way, are pretty long-term. While I don’t see myself first and foremost as a writer, she encouraged me to begin to call myself a writer. My roles as a church-planting wife and mom will always rank at the top of my priorities and dictate my to-do list. However, writing is something I am passionate about and desire to pursue alongside my most important ministries.

One thing Kate shared with me really stuck. She told me a story from when she had first begun to write and had not yet gained all the confidence she needed to move forward. A friend reached out to her and expressed a simple but meaningful sentiment in just a few words. She said, “Thank you for your faithfulness to write.” This was the encouragement she needed to continue. The words she shared did matter. God was using them in His own way and in His own timing; that was enough. She has been faithful ever since.

Further, she has been faithful to encourage and instruct other writers with the knowledge she has learned along the way. She has recently partnered with Fist Bump Media to provide Start-Up Guide for Online Writers. I was privileged enough to be a part of the launch team and get a sneak peek of this blog-/life- changing content! She has managed to pack A TON of helpful content into a digestible amount and has broken down an overwhelming task list into simple, achievable goals for writers at both the beginner and advanced levels. When stacked upon one another, these goals can pave the way to success in the world of online writing. For me, this means making meaningful connections and influencing women to serve Christ with their lives. For others, this means making an income or creating a platform.

I’m certainly thankful for the help and encouragement I’ve received in my role as an online writer from Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday Community. You do not want to miss the opportunity to snatch up this gold at its special introductory price now through September 19.

What are your writing goals? Will you take this opportunity to propel your writing career?

  1. If my goal is to be more than a blogger and have begun a manuscript, how will this workshop be beneficial? I am very interested, it’s just I don’t want to sign up for something that’s not right for me as I continue to take steps/push myself prayerfully towards publication of a memoir.

    Thanks!

    • Lisanne, you will find that publishers also want you to have established some sort of following and much of this happens on a blog. This guide gives tons of tips for growing your following on social media, building an e-mail subscription list, submitting to other web publications, and connecting with other writers and publishers. All of this will serve you even after you submit a manuscript and become published (Kate’s book A Place to Land is coming out soon!). I really think it’s worth it even just for all the links in one place for coaching, publishers, writing and design apps, support groups, etc. It will give you ideas you wouldn’t think of searching for online. If you do purchase, I would suggest going through it slow and completing the steps as you go through. It can be overwhelming to just zoom through it. I am more forward thinking into publishing as well, but being in the young mom/young ministry stage of life, I am trying to focus more on the blog until my schedule allows for more focused writing time and found all this information to be very helpful.

      Another thing worth mentioning is that First Bump also offers 30 days to Self-Publishing Course. I’ll drop the link for you here.

    Thank you for sharing the information. I would love to write, especially books and VBS curriculum. However, since being wife, mom, and missionary come first, I have really been considering using my blog to fill the writing desire. This seems like a great way to learn what I need to know. Thank you.
