  1. They tell me Imbruvica has a 90% chance of giving me my body back. I hope so. Every area of my life is suffering including writing, and I'm sick and tired of sharing my body with these lymph nodes. Prayers are always appreciated.
  2. Oh, sorry. Tips and other resources for Christian authors.

  4. Please take a look at The Vampire Manasseh. I posted it a couple weeks ago.
  5. Hey, everyone! I know I haven't been on in a while. Nicola and I are working hard, Beta reading each other's work. I thought I would just check in and let everyone know I'm okay and I miss you all. Maybe I'll drop the beginning of another story I'm (sort of) working on... Love you.
  6. I followed you, so hopefully the system will alert me when you do. It hasn't been reliable with doing that.
  7. Alley, do you have any of your book submitted here for critique? I would love to read some!
  8. What you're referring to is Atom Punk, I think. It's in the article. I'm not familiar with what the "punk" part of those genres is, but I don't think it has anything to so with the Punk movement in the 80's, which was (as I'm told by followers and from watching SLC Punk) supposed to be a neo-hippie anti-establishment thing, which was completely unsuccessful and gave birth to what I call the "giving up" movements such as Goth, Emo, Grunge, etc. I attended a Christian school and was not allowed to "express myself" as such, but my mother was a hippie, protesting whatever she could get her hands on. I struggle between what I would think is my civic duty to voice my opinion and the Bible's mandate to "Do all things without complaining or grumbling", "turn the other cheek" and so on. My mother always said, "Sooner or later, you run out of cheeks." Well, I'd better not spoil too much more of future chapters of... (new title attempts - Drum roll please) What is Real? Realer. Is Love real? What Is Love, Really?

  10. How Do You Get God’s Dream for Your Life? I’ve come to the conclusion there is no such thing as great people. There are only ordinary people committed to great dreams. When you commit yourself to a great dream, it draws something out of you and helps you become larger than you would become any other way. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” (NIV). God’s dream for you is personal. Only you can fulfill the purpose God has planned for you. His dream for you is positive. It will give you hope! How do you get God’s dream for your life? You’ve got to be willing to dedicate your life to God, committing in advance to do whatever he tells you to do. “Offer yourselves as a living sacrifice to God, dedicated to his service and pleasing to him …. Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God, what is good and is pleasing to him and is perfect” (Romans 12:1-2 GNT). Most people miss God’s dream because they’re not looking at God; they’re watching what everybody else does. If you’re trying to imitate somebody else, you’re going to be a carbon copy instead of who God made you to be. You need to be more concerned with God’s dream for your life than the American dream. The American dream and God’s dream are two very different issues. The American dream used to be pretty affordable and pretty simple. Today, the American dream is all-consuming. It usually takes both the husband and the wife to even try to keep up. This rat race becomes your total focus. If you want to get serious about discovering God’s dream for your life, you have to decide not to settle for the American dream. Will you choose the good life or God’s life? Materialism or ministry? The rat race or God’s race? “Let us strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back … and let us run with patience the particular race that God has set before us” (Hebrews 12:1 TLB). Commit yourself to God’s dream for your life, and don’t worry about being like everybody else. From the Bible App devotional "God's Dream for Your Life"
  11. One of my pet peeves: "What did you mean by that?" Why are there 50 different things I could have meant by that?
  12. I meant the plural "you". The South has the right idea with "y'all". Sometimes English is just dumb. I think the greatest impediment to understanding any English translation of the Bible is that they're all translated into English.
  13. I relish the compliment. I just thought "What is Love?" expressed perfectly my lament that we've forgotten what love is. (I know; that's also a song title.)
