Since this blog is about writing, I think it is fair game for me to sit on a few links and resubmit them for your thought with a writing twist on them. Somewhat recently my dad blogged about a reoccurring tendency toward removing a line from the Apostles’ Creed. So here’s a thought: try your hand at writing about Jesus’ descent into hell.

What is the relationship between relevance and dated material? And, whatever happened to the avant-garde? Even that concept seems outdated (which would be impossible if society weren’t convinced we are the perpetual climax of history)! Lest we think “dated” is somehow bad or lesser, let’s list some writing that should be dated:
It’s a dangerous thing to talk about books with writers, but I was asked the other day if I was a book person or just a writing person. I’ve probably thought longer and harder on that question than the person thought I would! So, here is a post sharing a few of my thoughts on books.
Happy birthday to me! I have a birthday hint for you. All I want is for you to seriously consider writing an Amazon review. You don’t even have to post it. It certainly doesn’t need to be for one of my books (although they would be most welcome if they’re positive!), but comments and reviews on Amazon or GoodReads are good for something: morale if nothing else.
I like to pretend things will be different in the summer. I’ll somehow be more efficient, more relaxed, and generally gain on bettering myself. Current goals include hitting a different type of keys so I’m in better musical shape before teaching wee ones to dance on “ivory” keys and then there’s working some on my handwriting. (I am such a tense hand-writer!) Anyway, if you’re looking for some new-to-you outlets for self-betterment, I saw a handy link for self-education or summer research.
Today’s link has a particularly provocative title for a Christian blog post, but it is worth consideration: I went to a Strip Club. (It seems common to recap, if not run through, the content of a link when one posts it to a blog. That just seems a little redundant to me. I’d rather recommend the link and add my own thoughts. Sorry if that seems a little blunt at times.)
Here’s a handy tip for those of us looking to improve our habits: re-place. Enjoy the link below and then I’ll apply it to writing.
I’ll admit this may be dumb. I love the blogging feature where you “schedule” rather than “publish.” It is such a weight off my mind, even though it is hardly different: I won’t really get up earlier than 6am to catch a final error before “going live.”
The comforts we cling to are so often additional steps. We add to our days rather than subtract from them, despite feeling a frightful scarcity of time.
