Tim Edwards [radrev]
What is your favorite genre? Can you provide a link to a site where we can read some of your work or learn something about it?
My favorite is non fiction, biblical exegesis, but I love writing non fiction on a variety o subjects. My writing tends to provoke people's emotions and passions.
I have written two books, (Demystifying the End Times - on the book of Revelation and Prophecy or Divination) both of which are available through Amazon.com.
I have a podcasting website at ...http://www.sermonplayer.com/radrev
What is your creative process like? What happens before sitting down to write?
I read something that provokes a thought process, or a I hear something on a talk radio station etc. The thought process unfolds and a geyser of concepts and thoughts comes out. I have to put it down on paper (electronic or otherwise).
What type of reading inspires you to write?
any kind of reading, be it a newspaper, or a deep theological essay. I am an avid reader, devouring books every day. I read two to three books a week
What voice do you find most to your liking: first person or third person?
Are you equally good at telling stories orally?
Absolutely...I am a full time pastor. i preach min of three services per week, and I travel extensively preaching at Churches all over the USA.
Deep down inside, who do you write for?
I write for myself...to explain, to gain understanding, to give place for the flow of thoughts. If I don not write, I will be over whelmed by my thoughts. My thoughts have a life of their own, they flow 24/7, ideas come to me all the time. I write to express my thinking!
Is writing a form of personal therapy? Are internal conflicts a creative force?
Short answer is 'yes'. I have to write. I write to relieve some of the pressure from within. Writing gives the concepts expression. My ideas may be weird, far out and even totally off course, but if I don't write...
Does reader feed-back help you?
no...I don't read comments left for me. I write for me, not for the comments. I don't write for search engines, but for readers who have questions about God, the Bible and religion in general, be it ghosts, supernatural realm or just plain "why".
Do you participate in competitions? Have you received any awards?
Do you write on a computer? Do you print frequently? Do you correct on paper? What is your process?
I write on MS Word, and then edit the document. My wife is also my editor and proof reader, followed by my secretary.
What is your blog address? What subjects do you deal with?
How do you find the balance between working to live and living to work?
Find what you enjoy, and make money doing it. Turn your hobby into your work and you will never work a day in your life.
In moments of tension, what techniques work in calming the mind?
What is the greatest loss you have had in your life?
You have nine wins in a row in a game of roulette: do you continue because you are on a good run, or abandon the game because statistically, it is your turn to lose?
Yes...don't get greedy...
Is there any superstition that makes you change your behaviour?
Does knowing someone's zodiac sign help you to better understand that person?
Did God create the world in seven days, or do you believe in the theory of evolution?
God created the world in seven days ...and this is simple faith. One day the science will catch up. Leonardo read that the earth was round in the book of Proverbs. For years he was persecuted for believing what the bible taught and then the science caught up.
Do you believe many illnesses can be caused by the mind?
Do you believe it is true that humans only use 10% of their brain capacity?
If you have been a full time pastor for ten years or more, you begin to think that most people use far less than 10% of their brains
For you, what is "the good life"?
Writing while sitting on the with the waves crashing on the shore. Living with my family on a coastal town - writing for a daily newspaper, online magazine and preaching twice a week. Inspiring people to change, grow and reach their destiny's.
What is the secret to happiness?
Secret to happiness is being content with where you are, while still working to achieving where you want to be. You cannot allow your 'want to be' to consume your 'where you are'.
You need to enjoy the here and now, even while working towards your next level
What is a friend?
Someone who loves you without judgment even when you are down and out.
Please list your philosophy of good health.
Fruit and vegetables every day, with small helping of meat once a week. regular exercise, lots of water, and a life of prayer!
