These days when I’ve sat down to write, I find myself puzzled. I have ideas in a few different genres and projects at various stages of progress. You’d think I could sit down and write what I want, right? Somehow it isn’t happening that way for me right now.

I have a manuscript about ready for me to work up a proposal. It’s another children’s book, and the largest hurdle, as always, will be image ideas. What amuses me some is how I have my husband read it through for theological concerns and then my oldest daughter for readability. 🙂 This time she had me add back a few words I’d crossed out! LOL Not all but some.
Merry Christmas and blessed Saint Stephen!
I do not know why some links end up pretty and some remain the same. Whatever. I still recommend this link. 🙂
14 My heart for very joy must leap;
My lips no more can silence keep.
I, too must sing with joyful tongue
That sweetest ancient cradlesong:
15 Glory to God in highest heav’n,
Who unto us His Son has giv’n!
While angels sing with pious mirth
A glad new year to all the earth.
Lutheran Service Book, #358, stanzas 14-15
I’m excited to announce/”vague-blog” that someone I respect is on the verge of publishing a children’s book! Woo hoo! As such, I’d like to run through some really simple ways to market for a first (or subsequent!) book.
Hello! I saw a neat (not particularly Lutheran) article and thought I’d share it: 10 Christmas Stories Every Father Should Read to His Children. I hadn’t even heard of a bunch of these, and Christmas read alouds can be so great!
I’ll spare myself trying to critique the current state of Lutheranism on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, but the latest issue of the Journal of Lutheran Mission addresses just that.
Funny thing happened. I received a book in the mail. Ok, maybe that’s not surprising, but I didn’t recognize the title, author, or who the recipient could be if it’s a Christmas gift. It’s just a mystery book. With a signature from the author address “To Elsa”! The plot thickens.
