For help learning to write stories and poetry

Hi everyone,
I would like to write and promote the writing of good stories and poetry, with a goal of writing works that teach virtue and Christian principles. I do not really know how to start, but I am going to join a creative writing group, and I want to ask for prayers. Please pray that God gives me help in learning how to write quality stories and poems. Also pray that I can help other people learn to write well.

Thank you all. God bless you. Amen.

Lord, please grant talents and inspiration for this user and for Catholics. Help us reclaim our place in the arts.

Amen.

Gracious and merciful Father, please come to their assistance.

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed are thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.

Praying for you. :slight_smile:

God bless your work. You need a patron saint. A few to consider are…

Saint Francis de Sales the patron of Writers
Saint Cecelia the Patron of Poets, Singers, Composers
Saint John Bosco the Patron of Editors
Saint Paul the Patron of Authors, Press, Publishers and Writers

Dedicate and acknowledge the help and intercession of your chosen patron. They will help you immensely. We are watched over by the saints we communicate with through the Holy Spirit. Have faith in this and things will develop for you.

AMEN

Our Father,
who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

May the Lord our God bless you with faith, the Son bless you with hope and mercy, and the Holy Sprit bless you with endless love amd grace! I pray that you will recieve the graces from our blessed lady and her beloved son, our Savior Jesus that you will be given the wisdom to excel in your studies and to develop your thoughts into something beautiful and sacred!

Also, if you read Psalms alot, they are a woderful inspiration t draw collectie ideas from!

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.
