Finding Writing Ideas
Do you long to write but fear you will run out of things to say? How can you continually come up with fresh material for books, blog posts, devotions or articles that will resonate with today’s readers?
Organizing Writing Ideas
As a writer, you often feel a constant pressure to come up with new material. Whether you write books, blog posts, articles or simply share your thoughts on social media, finding fresh topics and interesting content can often stress you out. But rather than looking outward — trying to discover what topics are trending — switch thinking and begin to look inward to your life. The material is in there; you just need to learn how and where to look. In this lesson, Karen Ehman will guide you through the process of cultivating content from your own life, providing you with more than enough material for your writing needs.
How to Create, Cultivate and Curate Consistent Content
In this teaching, Chrystal Evans Hurst will walk you through the lessons she’s learned both personally as a life-long writer and professionally as an author of two books. Being a speaker as well as an author, she will also give you insight on how to share your content with a storyteller’s heart.
The Two Best Questions a Writer Can Ask
Your best writing will come from asking two questions in the midst of everyday life. In this lesson, Lysa will unpack how she has gotten ideas for blogs that went viral and books that made the best-seller lists by considering these two things about her reader. This is something simple but incredibly effective you can apply to become a better writer today.
Finding a Fresh Idea
Do you ever feel like you’ve run out of good ideas in your writing? Does it seem like you’ve told all your stories and used up all relevant examples? In this teaching, Lysa TerKeurst and Leah Chabai discuss how to rethink the way we find fresh ideas. You’ll also learn about how Lysa discerns and develops her writing ideas, how to unlock new writing material from the everyday things you’re experiencing, as well as the importance of highlighting the unique qualities and value of your content.
Developing and Refining a Book Idea

Cook Publishing teaches how to reach and engage your audience by tapping into a need they don’t even know they have.
