  1. What an awesome illustration to draw from a Barbie doll, and I love the application to Christian writing! Well done!

  2. I too wanted to focus on Chriatian fiction, but I also has some problems with the genre. Mine was making the characters less realistic, their sins and vices sometimes so vanilla, I doubted anyone who wasn’t a Christian might not relate. I love the metaphor you presented with the Barbie doll. Very appropriate and clever. Great post, and thanks for visitingy page!

    • Thank you! And thanks for commenting 🙂 I know exactly what you mean by vanilla. In critique groups, secular readers keep after me to add language, etc. But I believe if we keep standing our ground and focus on good storytelling and quality writing, we’ll find creative ways to portray sin without crossing the lines.
