Ok, writers. Are we in this together? I’m finding that I’m a bit too scattered these days. I have some spring cleaning to do that is specifically to my writing projects! How about you? Any writing spring cleaning planned?

I had an idea today that ultimately ended up failing doctrinal review. You know, MY doctrinal review. lol It made me think, maybe it’s best if sometimes things do fail our own standards for clarity. Then, we are free to think and not bound to engage an audience with every little idea we have.
I read Amazon reviews. I don’t always trust them, but I read them with interest. Imagine my horror, however, when I read this one: “Anyone who ‘receives a complimentary copy’ whether or not for a review automatically makes my “do not buy” list. Automatic boycott.”
A conference speaker once talked about how multitasking doesn’t really work. She argued that multitasking really means that we’re distracted no matter what task is at hand. Yeah, I have six children, nine and under. I cannot not multitask. So, I told myself, I’ll just focus on whatever is at hand. I’ll serial task. Still, that’s pretty much resulted in serial multitasking.
The series goes on with Part V. Today’s post is hinged more on the Gospel: redeeming!
I’m a little torn how long to let this series run. Any suggestions? I know I have readers, but you lot sure can be quiet. 😉 I have other announcements building up, so next week the series may not run consecutive days.
Welcome again to our series on Law & Gospel for Writers (See Part I and Part II). Today we’re going to stray just a little. After distinctions about the Law, we’re going to look at a distinction of sorts about the Gospel. Don’t worry: we’ll look at what is written in Scripture.

Yesterday, in my new series, Law & Gospel for Writers, I introduced a few distinctions about the Law and asked whether you are thinking in terms of enough.

Are you sometimes tempted to think that being bound is actually better, more productive, or more successful?
Hello! Today I’m starting Day 1 of my first series: Law & Gospel for Writers. In this, I hope to explore elements of Law & Gospel discourse, of course, but it will focus on writers, writing, and common characteristics of writer’s life. Now, each post may not be as polished as I’d hoped but I hope that together we can come up with a helpful little course that maybe I can offer as an email course sometime. In part these are things it’s just good and helpful to hear. Just maybe it can be a more focused “consolation of the brethren” among fellow writers.
If I say something you disagree with, please do let me know.
