Here I am on the last day of National Blog Writing month. I made it! With a few days missed and a couple filled with content for National Novel Writing month – I made it! Looking back on the last thirty days much has happened. I left my five and a half year job for better pastures. I started doing my devotions on a daily bases more. And I began to understand how the last few years have affected me

Why, yes. I’m ahead of myself. And slightly proud of it. I’m putting one of my character sketches up – keep in mind this is a very rough draft. First up – Thomas Dahl! ***** History (35 years old) Thomas Dahl was born in 1978 in Brooklyn, NY. In 1998 at the age of 20 he joined the New York Police Department and rose to the rank of detective in 2003. He worked Homicide until 2005 when he was transferred
It’s Monday. Commence with the gnashing of teeth and tearing of ritual sackcloth! I’m back podcasting about church, Jesus and the future of it all. I’m a bit bonkers and wander with my ideas but it’s fifteen minutes worth of marinating on the future of The Church. Give it listen and tell me how wrong I am.
I spent the better part of a Saturday playing computer games on LAN with a bunch of like minded friends. The echoes of my middle school years were not lost on me. In middle school I was a full on nerd. I brought new meaning to the word geek. We had LAN parties, stayed up all hours of the day and night. And had more fun than any group of teenage boys probably should have. It was nice to have
Sometimes getting away from it all is the best medicine. Upon leaving my former employer I began to discover as I job searched that I had more time than I knew what to do with. I realized that I had allowed myself to get swallowed up in the job. It happens to the best of us. We turn into workaholics and while sometimes that is a good quality it is a very bad thing to run at full throttle all
Day 25. DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES? I’ve made it this far and nary a mental writing breakdown in sight. Fall has arrived in a rush of leaves, cold and pumpkin spice here in Denver. I will say that I’m not a particular fan of pumpkin in pretty much any form. Or yams. Or sweet potatoes. Yes, I apparently hate America. Or at least the Pilgrims alleged version of American cuisine. I deplore Pumpkin Pie. Even a healthy or unhealthy
It’s day 24 of National Blog Writing month and I feel like I’m hitting a stride. It might be a staggering stride and I may have started growling like a hangry undead version of myself but it’s a stride people! Since leaving my job of nearly five and a half years earlier this month I’ve embarked on doing my devotionals on a daily basis. It’s been a welcome return to something I’ve been missing. And that’s been much of what
It’s day 23 of National Blog Writing Month and I’ve not lost my mind or rage quit. So there’s that. As I’m out of ideas to talk about I’m going to write some fiction here and see if it sticks. So there. ******* Thomas Dahl stood outside interview room 001 with black coffee in one hand and a clipboard in the other. The girl inside the room had required his attention. As a Lieutenant in the Cope Police Department
This is “A Unwritten Letter”. Couple of years back this was a fresh emotion playing upon my heart. This is me writing a letter to the someone to finally close it out. I may do more of these for National Blog Writing Month. We’ll see. Onwards! ****** I wish I could have told you how I felt about you. I wish you could have heard me describe how when I looked into your eyes I felt as I’d come home
I podcast to talk about “When God Kills Me.” The man I talk about is Mark Harp. His obit is here and his website is here.
