Preparing for NaNoWriMo

I have been starting to prepare for NaNoWriMo already. I have been doing some editing of my previous nanowrimo books in preparation as I was thinking about being a nano rebel and working on adding to an existing work instead of starting a brand new book.

Last year I wrote 50,000 words of mixed fiction and commentary on the whole writing experience, so I was a rebel last year as well.

I am pretty sure I will stick to continuing my To Move the Stars stories with the goal of actually getting this series to the point I feel it is good enough to publish on smashwords and maybe even on create space.

I think I will write a mixed set of shorter works this year instead of one longer work. I am also considering writing at least one of these shorter works using Scrivener on the Mac. The one problem with Scrivener is that I use Dropbox extensively during Nanowrimo to both backup the work and to allow me to do my writing on different computers, and the other computers I use are not Mac's and thus don't have Scrivener.

We will see what I decide when November rolls around.

Why go to Church?

Why is it important to "go to church"? Honest question.

If you attend church (on Sunday morning or some other time) why do you do so?

I love the community of my Monday night men's group. I am also challenged and fed spiritually by this group. Recently this hasn't really been true about Sunday morning Church services. In fact I can't really say it's been true of Sunday "church" for a long time and multiple congregations I have been a part of over the last several years.

I wish Sunday "church" was more like Monday men's group. I am struggling to define why I keep going to church on Sunday when overall it is not deepening my spiritual life, and I have become more and more convinced over the years that what we call church is an unbiblical model that is generally ineffective for making and growing disciples of Jesus Christ.

Just Be

I am "off" tonight. Which means I am depressed. So I am laying in bed and I ask myself "what do you want Keith?" which is a method I use to figure out how to cope with and maybe get out of depression. And what do I mentally reply tonight? "Nothing." I don't want anything tonight, or I am refusing to identify what I want. Either way I picked a hell of a time to just exist in the moment with no thoughts or desires about what I want to do next. What a messed up time to finally choose to "Just Be."
