  1. Not sure if this is a helpful addition to the comments here, but I've personally found some of the best writing tends towards the concise. A story that stands on its own shouldn't need padding; quite possibly the fact you write concisely is evidence of an ability to express well. Immature writers ramble; the best poets condense an essay into a couple verses. If there's a lot to say, likely it will be a large novel; but sometimes the most luminous thoughts come in the form of gunshots.
  2. That's well-said, I think. The fault at the center of all this hysteria about the singularity taking over is materialism; that we are merely bits of atoms smashing about that chanced to become sentient. Thus if we can; machines can. But no amount of cold calculus can minister to a soul, much less create one.
  3. Ah, well at least we humans will always beat them at kick-boxing.
  4. Brilliant, thanks for this.
  5. Website of Clarke D. Emervane.
  6. Appreciate this. Such consolation in the smallness that we are.
  7. Hi Martin, I've recently written on this subject; hoping these excerpts might be of help: "The problem of preventing bad art, or of the elite being the sole judges of what is called art, is that the rest of us no longer try. But that which is mature is preceded only by that which is immature and often failing. It truly is as if three-year Alfred looked up at his forebears and thought, ‘I am as a grasshopper in their sight, I must return from whence I came.’ If the seed of the artist has been sown in some soul by God, then let nobody stop his brush from magnifying the divine." "Not always will our art be shared; perhaps foremost our art helps us on our journey, distilling our thoughts and making sense of our way. Perhaps we should also remember that there remains for the believer foremost an audience of One, whose heart takes delight in the praise of his children."
  8. Hi Joshua, What a great idea to open up the parables to children! Unfortunately I don't think my style will at all fit what you're after, not being in the 'children's Bible illustration' style. However, I certainly hope all goes well with it, and I'd be interested to know when it's done! Clarke.
  9. Hi Joshua, Depending on what you're looking for, I may be able to help, as I'm after some more side-projects at the moment. Would be interested in more details if you could share. Clarke.

    Thanks very much for the welcome, Sarah! It's appreciated. That's quite a breadth of genre you write. May God use your work also!

    Thanks for the welcome! Was hoping for some promotion, actually; certainly curious to know what mix of writers come here.

    Hi all, thanks very much for the warm greetings! Apologies for my absent mindedness; I generally write fantasy, however the pieces I've finished are a bit of a mixed bag with regards to form.
