Weekly Write-Up

Here's my list of interesting write-ups from Christian Bloggers for the week.
 
1. Lisa Samson's the Littlest Star-Christmas Story. This story is small enough to print and read to your own child.
 
2. Made of Honor at Camy's Loft. Mary Griffith is having a blog tour for her debut release, Made of Honor.  What I really liked about Camy's work on the tour is she stopped  on Sunday for a moment of prayer and to take some prayer requests. Christian writing outshines any other genre, because our first focus isn't to our own celebrity and book sales, but to edifying the body of Christ and putting God first. Kudos Camy and Mary for your gracious display.         
 
3.Dave Long laments over the Narnia bandwagon. My girl scout troop opted out of seeing it because,  these movie ratings are flimsy. Saw Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. No child should see that movie, so we're a tad concerned about Narnia. However, I will see the movie with my comedian friend, Roger. I hope it meets my expectations. And I hope Roger doesn't jone the movie. (Of course he will.) Just saw Sky High and the Fantastic Four, so I need to watch something a little more grounded before I go see it like The Golden Girls reruns or another episode of Sleeper Cell. Dont ask.    
 
4. Ooh, this is a good one. JSB had me perplexed. Great discussion and brain teaser on how to build a page turning story. Read the article and then ask yourself which writing perspective fits you. Dog gone it. Stephen King has my heart, but I'm such a Martha about plotting. I wrote a novel this summer in three months. It's sitting on my desk. I knew the ending. I have another novel I wrote a year and a half ago. Same deal. I'm not happy with either. But, Lord have mercy I need to do something fast or I may have to stop writing fiction all together. I hate being undecisive.
 
5. Fridays and Bertrand. J's The Master Artist entry is slowly becoming a Friday afternoon ritual. And it makes so mad, because my mind is set on his entry the rest of the weekend. Look, J. I have a lot of books to review and it's not fair for me to critique these books on your bertrandisms. :)
 
"Perhaps we{Christian writers] must take a page from Job, from Quoheleth, from the Psalmist, and react not against a subculture or even a culture, not against the niche or the mainstream, but against the one who stands over men and the worlds they make."
 
Oh, my word. There were so many great entries this week that I can't highlight them all. I don't know if its the Glad Season at work or every one's gearing up for Kwanzaa with me. Yea, I said it. But great blogging to all you guys: Claudia, Mary, Julana, Camy, Lisa, J. Mark, Michael, Princess, Sheila, Lashaunda, Dave, Chris M., George, Mary, Deborah, T.L.,Linda, Marcus, Bonnie, Milk Mick, Tayari, Mike, Gina, Chris Well, you, and you, and you, too! 
 
OT: I need a guest blogger for next week. Any takers?

That was a thought-provoking quote by Berrand. I have an image of him limping, like Jacob, after wrestling with God. Then he can write disability viewpoints, too. Ha.
