Writer’s Vision Blog Tour: A Writer’s Call to Action (Guest Post)

Greetings, everyone. Today I am participating in the Writer’s Vision Blog Tour, which celebrates the relaunch of the Christian community, Writer’s Vision, which was founded by Kaytlin Phillips. To read the interview with Kaytlin, go here.

I am a proud participant in Writer’s Vision, and I can attest that it is only one of two Christian writing groups that I support and suggest. And I’ve taken part in at least four.

What is Writers’ Vision?

Writers’ Vision is…

Writers’ Vision is a community where Christian creatives can connect and receive feedback, advice, encouragement, and even form friendships. Originally started in 2021 as a writers’ critique site, Writers’ Vision has expanded to include creatives of all levels! From authors to bloggers and even editors! Whether it is a community you are looking for or simply encouragement and advice, Writers’ Vision is here to help!

Our Community space where we share bits of our stories is open to a wide variety of genres and is for making your manuscript what you envisioned it could be.

The Community is a place where authors and bloggers can receive Beta reading services from readers and fellow authors. But it’s not just another critique group, it is a friendship, a coming together for the benefit of all involved.

What is Writer’s Vision’s Purpose?

Writing to Awaken Hope

The Official Blog of Writer’s Vision

Writing to Awaken Hope is the official blog of Writers’ Vision and is full of encouraging posts, interviews, stories, and even useful skills and resources for authors and bloggers alike.

Our Writing Challenges

Writers’ Vision host a writing challenge/competition every three months! The prompts range from sentences, word count restrictions, picture prompts, and even collages!

The challenge winner has their story posted on the Writers’ Vision blog and, of course, given bragging rights.

You don’t have to be a member of the Community to enter or even be subscribed to the blog.

About the Founder

Hello, I’m Kaytlin!

A homeschool grad, blogger, influencer, and the author of the MG fantasy World of Silence, Co-Author with my sisters, Marisa and Jaiden, of the YA Fantasy series The Dragon Prince Chronicles, and have been featured in the Seize the Night Anthology.

I first discovered a love for writing at the age of seven when I plagiarized a Roy Roger’s film into my own book. Since then I’ve become more creative and write books of my own invention, which are usually stories of hope, purpose, and redemption.  More often than not you can find me with my nose in a book, whisked away to some fictional setting.

Through my stories I long to present the Savior and His overwhelming love for us, I want everyone to know they are never too far gone for God to save them and that everyone has a purpose!

The Guest Post: A Writer’s Call to Action

by Kaytlin Phillips

Hey, folks! If you’re just now hoping on the tour, my name is Kaytlin Phillips and I am the founder of Writers’ Vision: A Christian Creative Community. When not over there you can find me on the blog I share with my sisters called Sisters Three or, more often than not, creating or getting lost in a made-up world. That’s a little about me and now time for my guest post!

— — —

I’m often asked why I like to read, or even why I write…here’s a super long answer to both those questions, I hope you enjoy it.

Dark versus light, good versus evil, but we know in the end the good guys win. That’s what first drew me to reading: I loved the struggle, the conflict of it all.

I’m heartbroken to say that books aren’t what they used to be…the simple truths have become blurred. So many of the newer books contain language, transgender, spicy romance content, and gory descriptions, destroying all the reasons I fell in love with reading in the first place. Have these things been around for years? Yeah, but they are even more prevalent today.

I hate to see good storylines, good concepts, go down the crapper because of the language or spice added in. There are so many books that I won’t read because of the unnecessary content.

So, what’s all my rambling for? I’m upset that books aren’t like they used to be, big deal…yeah, it is. Because this isn’t just adult books, this isn’t just New Adult books, this is Young Adult and Childrens’ books. Childhood is being snatched away, transgender is slowly being normalized, language is approved…stories with morals are dumped straight into literary trash bends with a big ‘OLD-FASHIONED’ label stamped on the front.

This is wrong. This is not right. I leave reviews on all the books I read with these ‘cultural norms’ that shouldn’t be norms at all, but amid hundreds of five star reviews my one star gets lost…there’s not much I can do…except warn people and beg you, my fellow writers, and readers.

Please! Please, let’s bring back good books. Let’s write books that echo of that beautiful land Above, books that tell of that Light that wins all wars, books that show us the definite, crystal-clear line between right and wrong. No blurring, just a clear line. Let’s bring back books with clean romance and no cussing. Let’s bring back books with morals, let’s dust off those “old-fashioned’ books and bring them back to the table. Let’s create a new normal!

Because honestly, normal is normal to who? Culture? Romans 12:2 says, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (NKJV)

So, let’s break the mold. Let’s create our own normal!

We need books to empower our future generations. That show them how to be brave. That language is not okay, that transgender is not normal, that not all the world is full of gore and brokenness. That there is a Hope so much brighter than all this darkness.

Do we sit back and do nothing because it’s simply how things are…or do we stand up? Do we step up and fight back with our books? Will you stand for morals? For a new kind of normal? Or will you sit back and watch as the darkness grows?

Wasn’t that an amazing call to action? We are followers of the Light, and therefore need to exemplify what the Light represents.

Thank you so much, Kaytlin, for coming on Madi’s Musings.
