(Blessed Easter Monday! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!) I’ve had another book idea. It’s kind of basic. So basic, in fact, that I’m surprised it hasn’t been done. It would be a reintroduction to Christianity, suitable to hand to unbelievers, especially those who acknowledge they don’t know much about Jesus.

That which I ought to write, that I do not write. That which I ought to read, that I do not read. Will pleasure reading always be a pull away from project-related reading? Is this a lifelong condition or one I will grow out of?
If you are stalling out mid-project, this post is for you.
Yesterday I made one confession and today I have another, more funny, one regarding tally marks. (BTW, I’ve gotten some good feedback about reviews/reviewing. Stay tuned for more on that topic later.)
Why do I keep starting new projects rather than finishing old ones? Is it that the inspiration passes? Am I growing toward better approaches? Am I just too divided to focus?!
A few people now have asked me where to send articles for possible publication. After all, articles get your name out there, as well as provide good writing experience. Unfortunately, I don’t have a handy list to hand out. Instead I have a few concerns and considerations (con and cons vs. pros and cons?) for Lutheran writers. I’ll mention them below so we can all sigh together.
I’m not sure it is possible to be overly eager with a project, unless it makes you sloppy. I figure that eagerness should help brace you through research. However, I’ve been recently reminded that I can still be overly eager! Particularly with early readers.
For a while I was keeping a little pocket flip-top notebook in my purse. I’d jot down notes whenever they struck and try to title the page to make it more searcher-friendly. You know what I have now? Something bound to get lost before I type in my disorganized notes.
