Art/Veith Sale!

Maybe your weekend needs a random art/Veith sale. Wonder what that means? Dr. Gene Edward Veith has frankly probably written more books than you realize. He really is a culture guy, as well as vocation expert. So, he’s been commissioned to write various stuff, including the beautiful book, Painters of Faith: The Spiritual Landscape in Nineteenth-Century America

Ugh

I lost my list outlining my blog for the week. I forgot entry day for the county fair. I got lost TWICE on a single trip yesterday!!! And, I totally cannot get on Facebook on 9/11 anniversaries. But today, today, is a new day.

Human Care Topics

You know how I am about resources. I want them sound, ample, and free! 🙂 So my next resource project is going to be looking for human care topics, especially those that need to tread careful lines between honesty, Scriptural teaching, and avoiding abject despair. You know the ones. Often about sexuality but increasingly covering so many human care topics!

Forgotten

Today I read a short story/ deleted scene, which I loved, by Vanessa Rasanen as she gears up to release the first novel in her Hearts on Guard series. Woo hoo! I’ll try to type up a review of that over the weekend for next week. Meanwhile I picked up a book to pre-read for my kiddos and realized, “I’ve absolutely read this before! And forgotten everything except a single scene at the very end!”

Motivation

I don’t know whether book clubs bring out the best in me or the worst. The book selections can be so . . . dark! I mean, I’m not some chipper girl who only reads sickly sweet stuff! O contraire, mon frere! But the Christless imagination goes in some terribly depressing places!

Misc.

I’ve mentioned a number of times that I intend to self-publish a collection of my poetry. Yesterday I played around on Amazon’s CreateSpace website with some good results.

As is regretfully all too common, I’m feeling conflicted about several aspects of it. Sigh.

But, my friends, we are Lutheran. We are readers, and we are writers. We cannot stop at every conflict, especially those confined to feelings.

Say a prayer for me, folks. Please? Do I know what I’m doing? Are my pieces worth this?

Anyway, so far CreateSpace has been easy to navigate. Most of my tweaking has been entirely in content, so that’s a positive sign for the software & process.

Great Ad

I got a great ad in my email box this week. It read:

Branch out this fall. Read a new fiction series. Start a book club. Write your own book. What will you try this fall? 

My hat is off to CPH, because those are GREAT suggestions followed with a GREAT question!

Woo hoo!

Branch out. I’m serious. Read and write. What all can you try?! 🙂

I also like to think that means CPH intends to continue publishing fiction novels. Yay, yay, yay!

Ahem, that means, “Lutherans, submit!”
