Just Sayin'


Each and every moment of life is a potential story. Tiny, seemingly unrelated fragments often have a way of coalescing into insights of increasing profundity. Snatches of conversation can lodge in the mind, provoking further reflection and refinement, and eventually inspire thoughtful musings.

Self-control, one of those sought-after character traits known as the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), is one of the key signs of growing maturity in a writer.
Just because anything could turn into a story, doesn't always mean that it should.
Private conversations should stay private. Churches/Faith communities should never become blog-fodder (unless it's to encourage by positive example). Some observations may be true, but writing about them may not be helpful or edifying.

Inspiration for writing comes from many overlapping sources: reading, music, art, nature, relationships, experiences, speculative imaginings, and so on. The spark that ignites the creative process can be found almost anywhere.

And yet...
Just because anything could turn into a story, doesn't always mean that it should.
Just sayin'.
