Sometimes edgy gets on my nerves and annoys me

Short and to the point: sometimes I love novels about people who want to write who end up writing. It’s like a niche genre which writers write for other writers.

Corny? Sometimes. Fine by me. It’s encouraging!

I also love it when people in books just realize something and take steps to make things better.

I think too many contemporary books focus on scandal, shock, and turns. But I’m sure I’m not the only one to roll my eyes or just put the book down.

Edgy does not equal good. Or worth reading. Certainly not.

Thank you, Lord, for writers who simply encourage while writing beautifully.

Folks, write! Even if you aren’t daring, edgy, or in some way trendy!

Looking for Good Resources on Science

Today I’m looking for good resources on science. I don’t mean as a way to teach it to my kids, and I don’t mean to objectify or personify it. At the same time, I’m hoping for more than “faith and science” stuff. For example, I’ve had this thought—tell me if I’ve gone too far!
