    General Discussion Dear Friends:

    I probably should have posted this earlier instead of procrastinating (as usual) and living in denial for a few weeks. I think I need to take a step back. For several weeks I have not lifted a finger to do any writing, save for a miserable attempt two nights ago, which ended with me just...

    Christian Writing Medical information, how much is too much?

    Right, if you include too many medical details, that becomes an info-dump, and will most likely annoy or bore the reader. I actually posted this same question a while back; here's the thread. If you like, you can check out the good answers I received. My scenario in the book was different, but...

    Prayer Request Prayer please!

    I am so, so sorry I didn't see this yesterday, Lynn! Huge apologies. I wasn't online much yesterday. Sorry to hear that that happened, but so glad the doctors were able to help and the procedure worked great. God's mercy is wonderful! I will be praying for your husband as he continues his...

    Christian Writing Help! I need advice!

    I think it depends on your intentions. If it was totally by accident, then yeah, you should probably fix that and make them all the same tense, whatever tense makes the most sense for your stories. But take me, for example: in my novel, Finn and Joanna switch narration in each chapter, and Finn...

    Christian Writing There is no 'Mary Problem' in IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE

    Yeah, I stayed up watching it until like 2 a.m. on Friday night (got a late start, haha 😅) and had this post in mind as I saw it for the fifth time. Again, good insight and makes a lot of sense. I also read the short story for the first time last night. What a fantastic little read, and also...

    Prayer Request Requesting Prayers for Safety During the Pre-Christmas Storms.

    Yeah, it's getting nasty here too, near the Lake Michigan coast. Maybe about five or six inches of snow, with heavy wind to blow it around. It's supposed to keep snowing here until 7 a.m. when it becomes flurries. My mom is scheduled to work today (she's a resident care aid at a nursing home)...

    Christian Writing There is no 'Mary Problem' in IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE

    This was so, so cool! Thanks for sharing this, it's an amazing viewpoint that I have never thought of before. You're right, that scene certainly has been misinterpreted by the critics for a long, long time.

    General Discussion No Worship Service At My Church on Christmas Sunday

    My church is having a condensed service on Christmas Day. Just short one, at 11:00, with no Sunday School or second service. I mean, at first I was of the opinion that they should just have a Christmas Eve service, and nothing on Christmas Day, just to give folks the chance to celebrate in...
