Mid-Week Encouragement

Mid-Week Encouragement

Hey y’all! I hope you’ll forgive me focusing on some other things today, but I just wanted to share a couple of opportunities that you might be interested in. 1. Oxygraphos, a professional-level critique group, is looking for a fourth member. I had to step down due to other commitments and time restraints, but they […]

Platform Building

Platform Building

This week I’ve been reading Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World by Michael Hyatt, along with several blogs, in an effort to better understand why I haven’t been able to grow my blog readership since I moved my website almost 2 years ago. I’ve even been running what I think is a fun spin […]

Three Months to Go…

Three Months to Go…

Man, it’s October already? Where has the year gone? Three more months, and we’ll be headed into 2013. The post-conference high has worn off a bit, so I thought it was time to take a minute and reflect on my goals, make some modifications, and plan out (the best I can) my writing for the […]

Creationism vs. Evolution

Creationism vs. Evolution

Turn A New Page Or…

Ah, yes. The well-known quote and it’s various, uh…variations. Turn the page.  Start the next chapter in your life.  Turn over a new leaf.  Violets are red, sky’s are blue. God is good, so what’s troublin’ you? That last one was my attempt at humor. I’m referring to the simple quote about beginning a new chapter […]

Whether Or Not You Write Well, Write Bravely

The above quote is from Bill Stout. Ok, this is where I write something. Let it be known, my wit knows no bounds. But it seems that right now, someone or something has placed it in a box. This is my debut post and I really want to write something that will incite a reaction. […]

What to write when you don’t know what to write.

This morning I realized that I hadn’t prepared a blog entry for today. Then I slept some more. Now it’s the afternoon and I’m realizing that although I was wanting to put up an entry about my son’s birthday last week I still hadn’t transferred the pics from the camera to the computer for putting […]
