In college earning my Master’s, I took a class on statistics. I’m not a “numbers” kind of person, or so I thought, until I took this class. I realized just how much numbers can tell a person about almost any subject. I also learned that randomness is rarely achieved even though it is a difficult, but highly prized, state for researchers to attain in order to garner objectiveness in research.
Randomness can spark an inferno in a writer’s creativeness.
I wish I had saved a blog post written by the Christian author, Brandilyn Collins decades ago. She wrote a most intriguing post about driving home and seeing a Burger King wrapper tumble across the road in front of her car. Read more “And now for something completely different…”
I have been stuck inside for weeks now. Depression was hovering around nipping at my sanity and dragging at my health. That heavy feeling settled around my heart and mind no matter sunshine or storm. There is something really depressing about not having a choice to either go do something or not do it. When you can choose to run to the store or have to wait until Tuesday morning at 6 am to go to the store. But this is just a tiny taste of what it must have been like to be a slave back in Jesus’ time.
I know beyond any doubt that God can be trusted. He has been true and faithful my whole life even when I decided to turn my back on Him. Dark days those were, too. God never forsook me, never denied me, and remained faithful even when I was unfaithful.
I was angry with God’s children, not with Him. Those children had belittled me, had bullied me, and had berated me. I had been teaching Sunday School since 1972! How could they treat me so callously?

We would love your input into our website, please.
When we changed over to the new template in WordPress, we did a lot of dusting and cleaning after the new construction trying to make sure all the links worked and the old stuff was swept into the dust bin while the new stuff was made available. However, we learned a ton of things not to do and a lot of things to do. More about that in a later post.
I’m asking you guys to help with our website. When you are walking through the site, would you please contact us with anything you see or try to use that doesn’t work correctly? Please? Anything.
On the menu, there are a few items that have a drop down menu as well. Are these confusing? Is it easy to understand how to get to the menu item’s page first and then to the various pages in the drop down? Should we change anything? What and how to change it?
Is there any page or tool that is not easy to understand? How can we make it better?
Writers live in this 2-dimensional world struggling to make it (along with their reader’s excellent imagination) a living, breathing world of 4-dimensions. Real. Sometimes we hit the mark and other times not. [This article is directed toward the less experienced writer. I’d really like for the more veteran writers to offer guidance to Sprout Writers in the comments section. I love seeing how words create new worlds and environments with “real” people.]
There is one obstacle that will bite us every time and that is communication among characters. Dialogue is crucial, but that is only part of communicating. Body language and tonal qualities make up the majority of communication. Read more “How to Write Body Language”
