Some pseudo-wise person made this memorable assertion, but for the life of me I can't remember where I read it.
Anyway, for better or worse I've been following it. This past decade was a good freelance publishing decade, but mostly work-for-hire pieces for Augsburg Fortress, web sites, and journals. It's a good gig. I plan to keep it up.
However, I will state now, on the even of my 40th birthday, what I hope to look back on at 50 (God-willing) with satisfaction.
I plan to write one book a year for the next ten years.
The Fuller Dmin dissertation is already well on its way, so that's the book for 40.
After that, I am looking at least to do the following:
1. An introduction to the Christian faith
2. A commentary on 2nd Corinthians
3. Something steampunk
4. A novel
5. A Kindle short
That's a good teaser. I have other items on the list, but don't want to get overly specific. Would love to hear from readers a) what books on writing help them write, b) what books they wish would see written.
In the meantime, I offer a link to my favorite book that inspired my present habits:
