Ever since I realized I had to completely re-write my book, one of the things I’ve been praying for guidance on is how to keep up with blogging. In general I haven’t found it too hard to do both, but there are some times (like this week, for example) when I’m making great progress on a particularly tricky part of the book and am pouring so much time and mental energy into it that I’m not able to write as many blog posts as I’d like.
I was thinking that I would just continue to rerun old posts or take sporadic blogging breaks as needed, when last night an idea popped to mind that I think was an answer to my prayer: I had pulled some of my favorite books off the bookshelf and was flipping through them, noticing all the stars I’d drawn next to salient paragraphs, catching sight of places where I’d scribbled Fascinating! or Great point, and I wished that I had more of an opportunity to share some of these gems of wisdom with readers. The problem is that a lot of times I don’t have enough of a “take” on the excerpt to write a whole post about it, or even comment much at all — it’s just some juicy bit of information that’s fun to think about.
It occurred to me that sharing some of these great excerpts might be a fun way to both free up extra time for book writing when I need it but also have some new and interesting content here on the site. So I’m going to try occasionally doing short posts with excerpts from some of my favorite books, and maybe some questions for discussion that come to mind — sort of like a mini book club. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on some of these great books!
