Fridays are for writing ...

... so let's get to it!

"Nobody should suppose that good writing - the kind that says what it means while being pleasant to read - has ever been easy ... " Jacques Barzun 1

Thank you to google earth images and Hubble for this image of the Butterfly Nebula.  Thank You, Father for making such breath-taking wonders.

Isn't it glorious?

Let's take a stab at writing a sci-fi piece!  What would it be like to explore space?  Begin a short story or poem about encountering this on a journey or adventure ... take 15 minutes to freewrite, and continue as you have time.  Post your un-edited piece in the comments, if you like.  Or edit a bit, if you prefer.  How can we not declare praise when we know the Creator of the Stars?

"The Lord merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born." -Psalm 33:6 (NLT)

 "What is the Matter With Our Writing?" in The College Board Review, No. 107, Spring 1978, p. 14, quoted from Writing with Style by John R. Trimble
