30 Days

Blessed Reformation Day! Happy 500 years! Happy Hallow’s Eve, depending on when you’re reading this! 🙂 And, happy almost NaNoWriMo! (Shudder) After going from one busy, here is another busy to temporarily consider. Ha! Anyway, below is an interesting and thoughtful alternative to a frenzied 30 days approach: “How to Write a Novel in 30 Days.”

I do also want to say that–largely over the weekend–I may have received enough info and anecdotes for two weeks of blog posts! Woo hoo for me! 😀 And, hopefully that means “Meet, Write, and Salutary” can be especially enjoyable as we transition into colder weather.

Help Church Worker Wellness

There will be a  synod church worker wellness site offering them as free PDFs and then everyone can benefit! The premise is worker-to-worker, hence the restriction on who writes for it.

Mortifying our Flesh

It’s Lent, a time to remember Christ in His humiliation, with His suffering and death for our salvation. It is not the only time to be mortifying our flesh, but I’m thankful there is a time when people are more likely to teach about sin—it’s not like understanding it comes naturally!—and healthy practices of the church. Now, I won’t blog today about fasting, but below I’ll address a bit about Lutheran writers, such us present company, mortifying our flesh.

Lutheran Woman’s Quarterly

Yesterday my post was admittedly under-enthused, but today’s is happier. Admittedly, it’s primarily aimed at women and maybe pastors. A good option for ladies looking to submit articles and built their curriculum vitae (CV) is Lutheran Woman’s Quarterly. In shorthand, it’s the LWML quarterly and its often eager to accept submissions.
