Leslie Carbone: Writing Well:  Organization
“The most important factor in the successful organization of any piece of writing is knowing what you’re trying to say.”
Good post by Leslie on using some up-front thinking and organization to maximize your writing’s impact. This is mostly geared toward non-fiction, but fiction writers may find benefits as well.

I am not a mistake. I am a one issue man. « Shawnsblogspot.com

I am not a mistake.  I am a one issue man. « Shawnsblogspot.com
“I am angry because as I read scripture I think that the church should have solved all of these issues by being the kingdom of God on earth. I am angry because there should be no need for socialism from our government because the church should be meeting the needs of the widow, the single mom, the down-and-out and the drug abusers. I am angry because the church should be seeking to “take care” of teen-age pregnancies by loving on young Moms and helping them financially rather than shunning them and calling the sinners and their children the product of sin. I am angry because the world has turned us into multiple-issue people and we lack the fortitude and the guts to stand up for life no matter the cost.
“So today I am taking back the issue of life and morals from the republicans and I am taking back environmentalism and social justice from the democrats. You do not own them and I will no longer be a a part of your political silliness at the expense of people. They do not belong to you. They belong to Jesus.”

Differences

Michael Gartenberg:

Every time there’s a new OS release from MSFT they talk about the shortfalls of the current OS & how the new version will fix all problems.

Ever hear Apple dis a former version of their OS? Me neither. 🙂

Invisible Children » Buy Kilometers, Build a School
“It really is as simple as the subject says. Yannick Daoudi will be bicycling around Uganda throughout December & January to raise money for Keyo Secondary School, an Invisible Children partner school. To raise the money, he’s asking supporters to finance this by donating $3 for every kilometer he reaches on his 1000/km trip.”

Obama Declines GOP Request to Redistribute Votes

Obama Declines GOP Request to Redistribute Votes
“It’s not that we want to punish your success,” wrote RNC chairman Mike Duncan. “We just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you has a chance for success too. Our attitude is that if the election’s good for folks from the bottom up, it’s gonna be good for everybody … when you spread the power around, it’s good for everybody.”
Brilliant.

In praise of single-issue voting

Tony Woodlief:

Those other issues certainly affect a country’s safety, prosperity, and greatness. But I’ve come to believe that a nation that tolerates destruction of innocents deserves neither safety nor prosperity nor greatness. We’ve descended into barbarism, and it poisons how we treat the elderly, the incapacitated, even ourselves. We shouldn’t be surprised, having made life a utilitarian calculation, that more and more humans become inconvenient.

It’s certainly true that there are other issues that ought to concern Christians, like the sanctity of marriage, and how we treat the mentally ill, the elderly, and children who have been born. But abortion is, in my view, the touchstone. Get this one wrong and your moral compass can guide you in nothing else.
