Today I’m interviewing my writing mentor and fellow blogger, Angela Dawne.
I have found Angela to be a fantastic thinker, writer, and encourager, and I hope you’ll enjoy my chat with her!
Hello Angela! Tell us a bit about yourself. Who are you? What brought you to Jesus? What’s your favourite thing about him?
I’m a reader, writer, thinker and dreamer.
My parents led me to the LORD when I was five years old.
I love his attribute of Prince of Peace. He’s been such a comfort throughout my life.
Tell us a bit about Key Word. Where did the idea come from?
Key Word is both a fiction and non-fiction blog. It focuses on one word every other week, and produces a piece of fiction and non-fiction from it. The idea came from a memory I had about when I was younger. My mother used to ask for the “Key word“ of whatever I wanted to say, instead of allowing me to interrupt, or forcing me to be completely silent.
What else do you write?
I write fiction novels and stories, and I write for Oh Beloved One magazine.
What do you hope that people will take away from your writing?
I hope people are entertained, and that the writing forces them to think outside the box and use their imagination a bit. Not in a magical and fantasy way, but in a way they wouldn’t normally think.
Bonus question: In three keywords, describe what you think Jesus would challenge about culture if he came back today to live among us. (You can give an explanation for them.)
I think He would want us to be real Christians, in the sense of being the same person both at home, and in the workplace. I think He’d want to see a world where He is reflected in every single one of His followers.
He would challenge us to love anyone and everyone. Those we like and those we dislike.
I think He would challenge us to pursue unconditional joy. Through all situations, I think He would want us to be content and joyful in Him and His Father.
Thank you so much Angela! I cannot wait to see what keywords you come up with for your blog and the writing that comes out of that.
