I doubt I’ll have anything to post today, but there are two things in particular that I am working on. So this is basically an update/teaser, and in one case, an appeal for some help.
One is an interview with Andrea York, from the blog “Write Down the Revelation.” This is still ongoing, and I currently have 123 pages (though only just over 37,000 words) to look through and edit (mostly to remove the formatting from Facebook chat, which is what we are conversing on, and of course my spelling errors, though not her’s, because she never makes any… and no, I’m not kidding). Andrea is able to talk to God Himself, so you can imagine my delight. I will have to release the interview in stages, perhaps as many as ten, though it’s not over yet, despite having begun over a week ago. I feel like there just hasn’t been a real conclusion in the conversation, and she just keeps responding back, so it continues…
The second thing I am working on is a piece about the difference between liberals and conservatives. It is on this topic that I urge anyone to share what they see as the fundamental differences between the two ideologies. I aim to focus on the ideas, so I am emphasizing that where this article is concerned, “liberal” and “conservative” are adjectives, not nouns. But honestly, don’t let anything restrict what you want to say; I can translate just about any approach into a form I could use, and I would be happy to credit anyone in my post if they provide an idea I borrow (and I promise to return it without too much damage).
I ask for help, because so far I have about 7 pages, single spaced… and that is too much. I will be scrapping what I have and merely using it as a primer for when I rewrite it tonight or tomorrow, and anything that others may add will help keep me on track, because sometimes when you focus on your own ideas too much, you forget there are other views out there. Basically… I need you guys to keep me honest.
That’s about it for now. Hopefully I’ll have a spark of creativity tonight and maybe make a post about something completely unrelated to the above, but I doubt I will have either of these two finished in time for publishing before tomorrow.
Thanks for reading.
