Randy Alcorn Randy Alcorn's blog:








An angry uterus heating pad, an F-U-terus pin, a box of chocolates, a girl power hat, a coloring book of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: these are some of the gifts recently suggested by Teen Vogue as ways that girls can show their “care” to teenage friends who just had abortions.

David Sloma David Sloma's blog:

Before the Internet rose to mass use through the 1990’s, just finding a list of places to -maybe- send hard copies of your writing to involved a trip to the library (or the purchase of an expensive directory that listed writing markets), and a lot of time to go through a thick book (or several) a...

Finally caught the biopic about Johnny Cash and June Carter, and I’ve got a couple of thoughts.


I love movies about artists because there’s often some bit about creativity that jumps out and speaks to me. In this one, for me, about the most powerful scene is when Cash and his band are at their fir...

Some people have little care for words. Some learn a few that stick to them like bubblegum to orange hair, they end up using the same words over and over on television or Twitter. Surprisingly, one such person apparently managed to convince millions, mesmerised by his words, to vote...

Cover of Asurmen: The Darker Road by Gav Thorpe (Black Library)With my latest Black Library audio Asurmen: The Darker Road just released, it seems like a good time to talk a bit about what goes into writing an audio drama. More specifically, we can take a look at what makes a good audio drama different from a good prose short story.


In form, the audio drama i...

You wouldn’t use a race horse to drag a cart

It’s no more sensible to talk about a single category of programmers than it is a single category of writers. Yes, an intimacy with the language is (usually) shared amongst writers, but otherwise journalists and poets don’t have a whole lot in common as...

It’s hardly theological novelty or historical oddity to suggest we should be wary of presenting the immaterial God in physical form. This was the point of my recent article on The Shack movie in which I expressed my concern that its portrayal of God the Father and God the Holy Spirit is a violati...

Seth Godin Seth Godin's blog:

There are two real problems with this attitude:


First, drawing lines. Problems aren't linear, people don't fit into boxes. Lines are not nuanced, flexible or particularly well-informed. A line is a shortcut, a lazy way to deal with a problem you don't care enough about to truly understand.

I can’t tell if this secret video is real, but it purports to show a scientist proposing to develop a military-grade virus that would eliminate extreme religious thoughts in people as a way to end terrorism.

The scary part is that it would probably work.

It’s no secret that Amazon is the goliath of the book-publishing world. They control about 70% of the market, and for self-publishers, even more. Like Google, they can change their rules arbitrarily and flip the script for marketers, publicists, promoters, and even authors overnight, and there’s... Read more of this blog post »
