Interview: Kimberley Payne

Welcome to Readers Write to Know Wednesday!  I have always been interested in both physical fitness and spiritual fitness, so I am so excited to introduce to you Kimberley Payne, the author of Fit for Faith – 7 weeks to improved spiritual and physical health, a book that takes the reader on a journey to improve BOTH physical and spiritual health.  Please enjoy reading her answers to your questions.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am married with two teenagers living in the country. I work two part-time jobs, and write during the blank spaces in my day-timer. I love to walk the country roads and gain inspiration from nature. I’ve written a novel, three devotionals and a non-fiction workbook.

Tell us about your current release.

Fit for Faith – 7 weeks to improved spiritual and physical health is a workbook that takes readers on a journey to better health. In addition to learning about the three components of fitness – cardiovascular exercise, strength training and stretching – the reader’s relationship with God will be strengthened through daily prayer, Scripture reading and daily journal writing.

What is your personal, most effective way to get past writer’s block?

Walk. A country block takes about 30 minutes to walk around and by the time I return home, I am ready to sit and write again.

Muse Monday: Hours a Day

Long ago, when my daughter (who is 15) was nearly two-years-old, I started writing. I kept it for a secret for a while. I’d wake up at 4AM and write until 6AM, then would turn my computer off and wake the household for the day. I worked full time, and often went home on my lunch break to catch 30 minutes of writing time.

Even after my (now ex) husband knew that I was writing, I maintained that schedule. I didn’t really write any other time, and I was always alone (or the only one awake in a sleeping house) when I wrote. Writing that way, two hours a day, five days a week, I was able to write 10 books in two years.

Six Sentence Sunday: The Picnic

THE next day, Tony showed up outside of Benedicts in a stretch limo. When Robin climbed in, she saw the picnic he had laid out on the floor of the limo, complete with a red and white checked tablecloth.

“What is this?” She asked, shedding her coat in the warmth of the interior of the car.

“Well,” Tony said, sitting on the floor with his back against the base of the seat. “I wanted to take you on a picnic, but it’s so cold outside.”

Muse Monday: Time to Write

I have to say, I’m looking forward to school starting. I had hoped I’d be able to finish my current work in progress this summer, but I don’t think I was able to write for more than two days. I need to not be distracted when I write, and listening to boys play or interacting with my daughter, while wonderful, is distracting.

I’m also a schedule girl, and the relaxed environment during the summer time really messes with my writing chi. The structure of the school year really helps me stay on track and keep everything in order.
