The Screwtape letters.
In a discussion a short while ago, a friend mentioned that my ideas on Christianity are similar to those that were held by C.S. Lewis; so I thought I'd read some of his works.
Most people are familiar with the tales of Narnia, even if you haven't read them, you have heard of them. But, Mr. Lewis was a well-known writer on the subject of Christianity too; the book I am reading is "The Screwtape Letters," this book centers on a series of letters between an older devil and a younger imp as the imp attempts to change the mind of a man on Christianity.
I have to admit; I am enjoying the book.
What is Kim doing?
If you thought that Kim and Adriana were meant for each other, you should read the new section of my romance that is online now. Kim's actions are causing concern for his friends, and who knows where he has gone, or why?
Mark and Hannah have an idea what is happening, but only Kim can solve the mystery of his disappearance if they can find him.
Premier Christianity magazine.
I think the problem arises with for me with Premier Christianity magazine because I was expecting a more religious based magazine.
I appreciate the magazine is attempting to gain young readers, but to my way of thinking it is more like any teen gossip magazine with the focus and television and celebrities.
I am still not convinced that taking out a new subscription is a good plan for next year, but several months are remaining to make the decision; I hope the magazine can alter its focus a little by that time.
No more free books on Draft2Digital.
I have imposed prices, mostly nominal, on my e-books because I plan to donate any money from sales, from now until New Year to charities that help servicemen like me.
My favorite Carol.
For various reasons most people have a favorite Christmas carol, mine is Silent Night.
The reason I chose this above In the Bleak Midwinter is because my grandfather fought in the trenches during World War 1 and this tune reminds me of the day the fighting stopped.
The book on show is a short story I wrote in honor of the men and women whose lives got altered beyond measure after those four horrible years.
Award winning writer.
Speaking as an award-winning writer of speculative fiction, I can say some of the most egotistical people are writers.
I think the changes in personality due to success are only exposing what is underlying in your psyche; when I won the award - which meant nothing - I lost many friends online because they thought the prize would put me above them, all it did was make me more nervous about my work.
I am sure what ticked them off the most was that for months they'd been writing about book signings, sales, and contracts, but here I was with no formal training winning an award. I didn't change, the only change was in how they perceived me.
I knew winning the prize would not change me because I am intrinsically an introverted person who avoids the limelight.
What a shocker!
For the first time in months, Amazon leads Draft2Digital for my e-book sales going into week 2 of the month.
This is NOT indicative of how good Amazon is so much as how little I am selling on Draft2Digital these months.
The largest proportion of book movements on D2D is for free books Another reason I aim to stop writing next year.
Without money, you need infinite faith.
I am more than brokenhearted; the last decade has destroyed me in personality too. I spent my life believing I could write stories would enjoy, what a fool I was!
The only reason I keep blogging is to keep my mind active, after this year, that won’t matter as I have given up writing.
The world of dreams.
Last night, in my dreams I had thoughts of Glen Coe and Scottish history. The only reason I can come to for thinking of this subject is a few days ago I wrote about my time in the Royal Air Force when I was stationed there.
For a long time, I’ve wanted to buy a book on the Clan Wars, military history is one of my favorite topics to read about.
I do like both of these ladies as singers, and I love the Scottish accent.
The Peacock Writers.
For three years, I wrote for the charity books for the Peacock Writers; we were a group of friends who chose to bring out our books in aid of children's charities in the USA.
I often wonder if our work yielded results?
