Remember Gina Kammer? I blogged about her a while ago. She’s started a new (free) online group to offer sci fi & fantasy support for Christian writers. 🙂

Lutheran books for writers
My post last week made me think of other Lutheran books for writers, so let’s try to compile a list, shall we? 🙂
It was a sad moment, seeing a new title now available from Lutheran author Walter Wangerin Jr., who died last August or so. Still, one especially worth mentioning here: Storycraft: The Art of Spiritual Narrative.

I found time to read a novel recommended by my mother-in-law. It’s called Unwritten by Charles Martin. He isn’t a Lutheran so I’m not reviewing the book here, but I enjoyed the read and was thinking about something he added to the end of the book about overwriting.

Don’t Do List
I encourage you to write. I’ve read some really neat, amazing, diverse stuff from all you writing Lutherans! But I’m putting together a Don’t Do list. Because some things shouldn’t be done, even in books. Am I right?

Writers’ Workshop for the Ladies!
LWML is offering a writers’ workshop for the ladies! Has this happened before? What a lovely idea!
Rejoice? I don’t want to rejoice. But, on the other hand, I do. Frankly, each one of us still has tremendous reasons to rejoice, no matter what’s happening to or around us.

In Times of Trouble
Not everyone likes to dig into dystopian literature. That’s fine. Even so, there’s something therapeutic about reading literature written during times of trouble. Or would you disagree?
I’ve been googling various authors to double-check various things, and I stumbled on a quote from Flannery O’Connor that I’d like you to consider today on distortions.
