Then, he let his eyes wander and land upon a bathing beauty. Only one problem: she was already taken. But, David was the king, and he thought he could fix everything, however, his sin found him out.
Some of the best conflict a writer can write is the struggle of a character to cover lies.
Make a list of lies a character might strive to conceal.
Beside each lie write a way the character might cover up that lie.
For each lie and cover-up, write how the lie might be found out, meaning the cover-up finally fails.
Satan is the master at lies and deception. Have you allowed him to feed you a lie? Do you question or doubt your calling or effectiveness as a writer? Have you considered giving up or quitting? Consider the fact that these may be straight from the deceiver himself.
Instead of thinking of cover-ups, write out ways to combat the lies the devil wants to use on you when it comes to your writing for the Lord. I’ll get you started – resist the devil and pray to God to encourage you.
