Having said that, if I were considering some other career, e.g. dentistry, I suspect that many of the insights and principles explored in the book would still be inspiring and relevant.
The authors are nearly all women, who appear to be mainly American writers of romance and similar genres for women. The contributions are bible-based and conservative, and therefore assume that our careers, as writers or otherwise, are lived out in individual daily relationship with God. As Christians they are sharing their experience of how this has panned out in their own writing careers.
I found this book very helpful in clarifying why and what I want to write, and I would recommend it to anyone else who is wondering if and why the endless time required might be worth it.

So when I saw this devotional I thought I'd check it out.
a) Scriptures are referenced
b) Some stories are entertaining or thought provoking
c) I like many of the prayers at the end of a devotion
d) They are all very short; 5 minutes max
e) Price is great for only $1
But some of the items were weak and just full of fluff in my opinion. No hard introspection required or something to chew on...but more of a cotton candy devotional.
Also the fact that different versions of the Bible are used is a pet peeve of mine. Others may not care, but it really is a pet peeve of me specifically. My opinion is use one version throughout and let the Scripture speak for itself please.
Also, there is redundancy within several of these devotions. For instance by the time I got to Day 12, I had already read two or three about being "called" to write.
Lastly, not all followed the same format. I found out later through the reading that some may have a Reflection question, some may not. Or Some may start with a scripture and some may not. Not always consistent.
A lot of promise here.
Consistency in versions and format would have helped this one customer have more of a satisfying experience.
I found "31 DEVOTIONS FOR WRITERS" to be inspiring and containing some wonderful guidelines that encourage and apply to everyone - not writers, only!!
