Not much writing going on at present. I’ve had the wonderful privilege of attending our yearly pastor’s conference out in sunny California.

This is one my favorite times as it’s a great opportunity for me to get away with Jesus and spend time with friends I don’t see but once every year or two.

I attend writing retreats or conferences for similar reasons. Not to write, but because we all need to get away to be refreshed and renewed in the “why” of what we do.


Jesus often retreated with his disciples for their refreshment, to be challenged to go deeper, or to excite for the future.

I guess I share this today instead of something about writing because maybe there’s someone out there who feels like they’re running on fumes. Maybe you’re stone-walled or stuck.

There’s a difference between writing your way through difficulty and needing a fresh touch from God. If so, you might be trying to fix a spiritual issue with a physical solution.

If that’s the case, go retreat with Jesus for a bit 🙂 Your story can wait.

About Will Ramirez

Will Ramirez grew up with a love for God's Word and fantastical worlds. The first passion led him to pastor Calvary Chapel Lighthouse for the the last 17 years. The second led him to create the world of Adme, the setting for his coming debut novel, an epic fantasy titled Soul Yearning. He lives in Central Florida with his bride of seventeen years and their four children. Since 2010, he's been a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers and serves on the leadership team of Word Weavers of Orlando. He is currently working on the second book of the Godslayer series as well as The Unspoken, book one of a dark fantasy trilogy. In the land of Adme, powerful beings rule as deities and compete with one another for followers. But when a young priest is revealed as the prophesied godslayer, the pantheon unites to destroy him.
