  1. well although I'm legally blind, I have 2 monitors both 32 inch televisions as a monitors and I sit about a foot away from them and one is dedicated as a magnifyer. My mother always taught me not to let my disability determine what I could or could not do so I have always found my way around obstacles. When I was very young I used to draw pictures although I wasn't very good at it and so in my 20's I started playing around with photoshop and soon found that I could make art and after a long time and a lot of practice I became a novice graphic designer. To be honest I do

  2. A poem about the most and best true love we could ever hope to find True love is patient, true love is kind This kind love on earth, you cannot find so perfect, so forgiving, without ill intent no strings attached, is how it is meant No force or restraining, this love doesn't bind with no records of wrong, this love is truly blind it is given to everybody with no expect for reward but the cost was far greater, than we could ever afford This love never gives up, or will ever disappear it stands tall and fights, it will conqu

  3. Hello, I joined to see if there are any forums or advice on where to go on how to create content. Christian content. I am not trying to write person has problem finds Christ and has no more problem stories. Is there somewhere here or else where I can find this type of teaching or coaching or discussion?

  5. Based solely on the word "Dragaera", I would say some fire breathing lizards are involved.

  9. It's been a while since we've done this, so I thought I'd try to bring it back. Post something funny you've seen recently. We all need a laugh.

  11. Just like God the Father isn't Jesus's biological father, and God the Son is not a biological son, the Church as the Bride refers to our role and attitude in our relationship with Christ. My sermon series at my church (I talk about once a quarter) is all about how God created both the metaphor in Scripture and the actual thing in reality that the metaphor is referencing. That makes both sides of the metaphor important to look at and understand. It isn't just the similarity between them, it is that God chose to create that thing that He then wove into the rest of creation and His Sc

  12. Peace, Like Solomon Never Knew is part commentary on Ecclesiastes, part foray into eschatology. It proposes a novel historicist framework for Bible prophecy related to the end times based on Ecclesiastes, Job, Psalm 119, the story of Noah from Genesis, Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus, and Revelation 2-3. I doubt you have ever seen anything like it before. I call it computational eschatology. (There is Some math involved.) I DO NOT set a date for Christ’s return. (The earlier the better, in my book.) I would like to swap critiques. I am open to reading fantasy, sci-fi, YAF, Christian non

  13. Medieval Fantasy is a genre. It is exactly as tired or as fresh as the author makes it. Steven Brust’s Dragaera series is utterly unique and endlessly fascinating. https://www.goodreads.com/series/49760-dragaera

  14. At least for children’s books, I still see the medieval setting alive and well. However, I have seen a shift from agents’ wishlists to more diverse settings (less Eurocentric tradition and folklore). I asked in a conference once whether we should stay away from writing cliches. The answer of the speaker was this.... write a cliche if you must but make it your own. In the end, the words of C.S. Lewis rings true... “Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it ha

  15. First to answer the questions, it depends. Terrible Tolkien knockoffs that imitate all the window trappings of the Lord of the Rings and none of the heart and soul are utterly, contemptibly CLICHE. Stories set in Medieval times that have their own rules and magic and details, those are not cliche at all. Tom Simon wrote a great book of essays called "Writing Down the Dragon" about Tolkien and his imitators. He references Ursula K. Le Guin's "From Elfland to Poughkeepsie" essay a lot as well. Both works are really good at explaining why we feel like certain f
