@taylorclogston, your words highlight how not easy to manage this theme is. It can touch very deep our hearts, even when we aren’t the victims. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
I didn’t know Wise Blood. I will read it for sure. By the time SE launched the reading club on The Promise of Jesse Woods I tried to buy it, but I just couldn’t. Maybe…[Read more]
“Loliness wasn’t the final word to describe the future of that old man. Nor rest, nor safeness. In fact, who could see boldness fitting so well with silver hair?”
I think this character is disappointed in the church. His arc will be: how to trust again the children of God?
Thanks also for suggesting to pray over this theme. Yes, The…[Read more]
Have you ever tried to portray “disappointment with the church” on any writting of yours?
Do you have any suggestion?
I’m wrinting about a man (40 years old, single) who lost something very precious due to bad counsel from brothers. I didn’t decided yet if it will have an happy end.
It’s The Horse and his boy. I’ve read it four times.

- 1984 – It made feel a profound fear of suffering like the chacarters. It took from me almost one week of good sleep.
- The Chronicles of Narnia – I was a new christian when I first read it. It was deligthful to see my brand new faith portrayed in a so smart way.

3)What would be the first thing you do on Saturday morning after a long, stressful week?
As an architect INFJ/T too, I would leave my bed early to ride my bike or to take a long walk on a park, with abundant trees. Alone. After that, I would apreciate to have lunch with a special friend on a nice restaurant.
You know, @anne_the_noob14, yesterday I listened a sermon on Proverbs 31. The pastor said that trought that poem God himself was praising godly women. So we his children could/should imitate him on doing that. I think it’s something you did here (and, I belive, I may try too).
What a incredible mother you have!
I enjoyed the descriptions. I could feel being tired too.
1) Do you wear shoes? How many?
2) Have you ever done any handmade things? Which ones?
3) Are you ashamed of something? Is there anyone who knows it?

1) What is the most oddly satisfying thing for them?.
Playing bass with friends. Walking very early in the mornig, while the sun is rising.
2) What animal creeps them out the most?
Creeps? Maybe cats.

I took the test too. Got the same (Journeyman Writer). The questions made me think more about my writting itself than my routines as a writter. Kind of more usefull to me.
I’ve read Fancine Prose’s book. Some questions remembered me her book.
I don’t like this topic so much. I think writers should care about theme and let their personal ability to choose the character that fits better to it. Writers should feel free to portray who and what they intend to (or are able to).
But I would apreciate some stories of a priest where he can do his job in peace, like if it could be a normal part…[Read more]

I’m not writting at all too. I spent all the week at home (but monday) engaged with cooking, cleaning and organizing things.
What’s happening changed peoples perspective of live. We are dealing with things that few of us could imagine. And so fast. I guess I needed some time to rest these ideas. I fell that what I’m about to write will be…[Read more]

I’ve started reading “Lord of the Ring” a month ago for the first time too.
I’ve been thinking on that and my guess is this niilism around us that causes D.O.D being popular. In a world with no hope, no good for free and no strength above human strength, the heroine must held it the best possible. That’s why we woman have been portrait “as strong as man”; that’s the best woman this world can give birth.
So, an possible…[Read more]
