I am a flawed person.
There is an article on the Premier Christianity blog about scientists who think babies with Down's Syndrome should get aborted; who do these people think they are to decide for the mother?
Three years ago, a young lady with Down's Syndrome stepped out onto the catwalks of the famous and glamorous young things the press drool over.
What I am going to say next may appear to go against what I have just said, I think a lady who has got raped should have the option of aborting the baby. The reason is rape is a heinous crime, and the lady should not get forced to see the man who raped her for 16 years.
There is a lot of talk about Christian Aid www.alsdominion.co.uk/home/cut-foreign-aid and living a Christian life, and the truth is who of us is perfect?
If a doctor had made this choice for my mother, I would not be here as my genetics are so flawed I have asked myself the question, should I have been aborted?
No surprises for me.
My bestselling e-books this year are nothing of a surprise to me.
Since her launch nearly five years ago, Forgestriker has not failed to be my most successful book on Draft2Digital.
On Amazon, my bestseller this year, and for several years, is Aliyah; this is not a sign of the success of my romance so much as a sign of how little I sell on the site, I only sold three e-books in two years.
Beyond a miracle?
As Premier Christianity magazine likes to talk about celebrity gossip, this article should please them; in a recent article they raised the topic of how far should a comedian go in telling religious jokes; this is a religious joke, but at the root of it, the Lord answers why soccer is so bad these days.
Last night our Lord was seen at Old Trafford, Manchester, talking to José Mourinho; it appears that Mr. Mourinho asked the Lord for a miracle to save his job and the club.
The Lord replied, "You asked me for a miracle, but what you propose is beyond a miracle. I can't provide the miracle you need as your team lacks an essential element, that is faith. I will give you some sound advice, teach them to play from the heart, not the wallet. One of your predecessors (Ron Atkinson) made the same mistake in trying to buy success; he forgot the most successful team was built from the ruins of the Munich Air disaster by Sir Matt Busby because his team believed in themselves, not who looked best on the pitch or who got paid the most."
Fire and Brimstone?
Among the other what-ifs in my life is the question of what sort of clergyman would I have been if I'd not missed the opportunity I see in hindsight - www.alsdominion.co.uk/home/did-i-miss-my-vocation-in-life - I used to view myself as the old style fire and brimstone type of preacher, but things have changed.
Since I began writing my stories on - www.alsdominion.co.uk/the-reading-room - I have thought more I am a more forgiving and forward thinking type of person than I imagined.
Christianity is becoming a joke.
The more I read about Christianity in the modern world, the dismayed I become about religion.
The latest debacle is a Cathedral in the UK has installed a giant slide to raise the subject of Christianity and talk about those who slide in the downward spiral.
What next, a shooting gallery to shoot down skeptics and those who criticize Christianity?
I am no Biblical scholar, but there is a passage in the scriptures where the Jesus turned the merchants out of the house of his father; I don't think he'd approve of all the gimmickry the church use today.
Premier Christianity and Twitter.
I don't expect to see any benefits from having my Twitter tweet published in this month's issue of Premier Christianity magazine, but publicity is its reward in my view, and this is another feather in my cap.
Short stories coming to their end.
My motivation to write in the last month of my time as a writer will be to finish my last stories - www.alsdominion.co.uk/the-reading-room/mordhiemicus, www.alsdominion.co.uk/the-reading-room/god-walks-these-dark-hills, www.alsdominion.co.uk/the-reading-room/why-me, and www.alsdominion.co.uk/the-reading-room/the-reunion.
Once these stories get finished, I will settle down to watching my DVD collection.
Operation Nordic Noir.
I am undertaking a project that I hope will succeed but I think will not.
The project is to find the title of a Nordic Noir series I was watching several weeks ago.
The longest odds - least likely success - are that I will find the name today.
The shortest odds - most likely scenario - are that I will not find the name of the series.
I think I could be in with a chance to solve the mystery as last night I was chatting to a lady who works at the University of Helsinki, and some of the photos on her page on Facebook are similar to those shot in the series.
Well, if I am to stop writing this month, at least this will keep me going for some time.
I am afraid they are over.
I am sorry to say I think my good times are part of history now; it's been a long time since I had a good sales month for my e-books, and in a few weeks I am calling it a day as a writer after a decade of struggling to sell my work.
I hope to rise again.
