The Ministry of Words | Sheri Yutzy

Writers are the word-shapers of the world. We are quirky, creative, and sometimes solitary, but above all, we use words to invite the light of Christ. As a writer, I can minister to the hurting, confused, and downcast of the world through stories and articles. Including myself. When we as writers put words on the

The Cookie of Fortune

The Cookie of Fortune

The salty odor of frying noodles added depth to the tang of chargrilled pork and hoisin sauce. Sweet enough to cling to the back of Jim’s throat and just earthy enough to make his stomach rumble in anticipation. Gaijin had the best Asian cuisine in San Francisco. No contest. Jim’s stomach gnawed on his spine

Realm Makers 2016: A New Trope

Note: This was supposed to be about 700 words. There is no way, my friends. No way that’s happening. In fact, this will probably my closest attempt to publishing a full-length novel. I hope you enjoy. (Feat. photo credit: Gretchen Kuykendall Engel) When I mention Realm Makers to folks, they always ask me what it

Writing from Real Life

Writing from Real Life

If you’re a writer, and even if you’re not, odds are you’ve heard the adage, “Write what you know.” And if you’re a writer, it’s probable you’ve sat and thought, “I know about grocery shopping, my work, and living in the suburbs. There’s nothing exciting about what I know.” And so we sit and we

Katiller Character Short: Going Dark

Katiller Character Short: Going Dark

Ah, bok. I hate getting shot. Bener winced as Eser poured antiseptic over the furrow creasing Bener’s upper arm. He glanced down, grimacing as more blood beaded up on the wound. At least it’s just a graze. Much better than the alternative, had he been much slower ducking for cover. Didn’t make it hurt any

What stories taught me about coming home

What stories taught me about coming home

I’ve been trying to write this post for two weeks now. Staring at the blank page, turning over thoughts in my mind like laundry churning in the washing machine. Where do I start? How do I start? Where do I find words to articulate what I do not fully understand myself? A week or so ago

2015: The Year in Review

2015: The Year in Review

The trouble with driven, forward-thinking people is that they rarely take the time to look back. The past is the past, and it’s better left behind. In some cases, that’s true, but if we neglect to look back on what we’ve learned, we are destined to repeat mistakes. Not only that, but if we don’t take

Katiller Character Short: Scorpions and Webchats

“You stole my computer.” Bener glanced up from his map, forgetting the dull pain behind his eyes at the dangerous tone lurking in that bland phrase. Eser glared over the top of his laptop at Savas, who studiously avoided his brother’s eyes and continued sharpening the knife in his hands. “Not stolen. Never moved the

Between the Lines: Eser

Between the Lines: Eser

This is some of the shoddiest code I have ever laid eyes on. Eser stared at the computer screen for a moment before shaking his head and resuming his typing. Seriously, it looks worse than that one time I tried to teach Savas how to hack a computer. Yeah, that had been a disaster and
