My Launch Team

Ladies and Gentlemen, it was a good weekend. With in-laws and godparents visiting, I could hardly ask for more. I even got both quiet time and productive time! Gasp! Except, well, maybe there is one more thing I could ask for . . . a launch team for my upcoming book! Who’s with me?!

Spread the news! I am officially looking for members of my launch team. At this point, it will be for a book of Lutheran poetry, Ecclesial PoetryVolume 1, but frankly I have several projects simmering away and, if desired, applying now will let team members reserve a spot for future teams, too.

What do you think? Want sneak peeks at the goodies I’ve been cooking up? Continue reading

To Summarize

Sometimes a person gets a great idea before they’re done with their previous great idea. Right? To summarize my muddled state of mind, that’s what’s happened to me.

Veith Papers

Hi. So I’m working on a project, and I’m trying to gather as many Veith papers and presentations as I can find. Or, perhaps I should say, as many as we can find. 

(Isn’t my daddy handsome?)

Little Interview

This is a short post for today. 🙂 I trust you won’t mind. I had a little interview on KFUO about my recent article in the Lutheran Witness on vocation and multitasking.Figured maybe that’s reason enough to have a little shameless self-promotion. ha ha haa

By the way, I really like it when I sound prolific. Makes me want to be even more so!

Turtles

There are so many weird hangups in a writer’s life. Am I wrong? For instance, I keep stalling on my poetry project because I keep writing poetry. And, since I’m self-publishing, who’s to say when I should cut myself off?! Even weirder, my latest writing dilemma has to do with turtles.

Poetry fighting heresies

I’ve had two totally great ideas this weekend. I just hope I remember them!!! Because, while I did do a bunch of outdoorsy work on our first beautiful day in forever, I did NOT get the writing done I thought I would! But, please, (don’t steal this!) tell me: what do you think about poetry fighting heresies?

Poetry Project

Does anyone else here struggle to juggle multiple projects? My poetry project has been on a back burner, but now I’m wondering if it’s time I wrap it up.

Let me ask you: how many pages do you think a book of poetry should be before publishing? Should I wait to publish until I’m poem-ed out? Right now my project has a variety of biblical themes and topics with poetry meditating upon them: should I wait until I have a full book of connected themes? Or just know that I may continue to write such religious meditation and publish various volumes?

I also wonder how people self-publish through Amazon yet aren’t sure when their release date will be. Any insight on that?

🙂 Meanwhile, happy reading and writing folks! I’m rooting for you!

Who says there can’t be a Lutheran mummy book?

Not me! I have this super great idea of a  mummy book I could write! Delving into how Christians could handle death “nearing extinction,” as well as how would the human heart and mind process coming back from the dead and realizing one’s gods were false!

Part of me wants to share the cool little details I’ve come up, and a larger part of me laughs to think of others playing around with mummy ideas, too. 🙂

Don’t worry. I doubt I have the heart or the scarab to write such a thing. I SURE don’t have a science angle to adequately suit sci fi readers. Still, I’m enjoying pondering it and just maybe . . . someday . . .

Until then, happy reading & writing!

Concept of Time

Thanks for the comments on yesterday’s post. As I’ve continued to think about the topic, it’s occurred to me that, as sinners, we are so quick to look to “normal.” What do we consider normal? An ongoing pretty good situation that can handle rather trivial chances in scenario. I’m thinking “normal” relates to our understanding of God and the extent of our need for God! Sadly, people don’t want to need God in a normal, ongoing way.
