What Charlton Heston can teach us about writing

My wife’s a student at Liberty University. This week she shared a story that one of her professors had posted online about Charlton Heston and the famous chariot race of Ben Hur.

As I listened, my inner writing motivator began doing back-flips SO… I’ve got this short video that I thought I’d share with you.

1. Commit to the Race
2. Expect a rough ride
3. Trust the Director
4. Train like your life depended on it
5. Redefine your view of success

  1. I am so blessed to have met you at CCWC 2019 in Colorado, your continual instruction through the video’s is so very helpful and encouraging. I tried something new today in my writing and was evaluating it’s “success” when I watched this video. Thank you!

    • It was a blessing to meet you as well Tonya! I’m so glad the video came at the “write” time. 🙂 Thanks for letting me know and be blessed.
