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.

Twice I’ve read a book with high expectations only to be disappointed. Ok, that’s happened many more times than twice, but twice I’ve read books highly recommended for how they portray God only to be disappointed. But I think I’ve figured it out.

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?
LWML is offering a writers’ workshop for the ladies! Has this happened before? What a lovely idea!
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?

The irony of starting over with this post after a storm interrupted me! But sometimes starting over seems to plague me. I try to get more steps in, but before I approach better shape it seems like I have to start over. Not a few times. All the time. I try to be better in my vocations and it’s the same way. Every school year. Every Lent or Advent. Et cetera.
Honestly, I can get pretty down because of it.
