A small thing

Posted On Mar 31 2005 by

I submitted the prologue and chapter 1 of Soul Searcher to the “Noble Theme” contest at ACFW. It’s not a big thing, really, but I need to get some sort of feedback. I also told my wife to go ahead and start reading it. It’s only been on the hard drive for five or six years. I’m a little hesitant.

I edited through chapter six last night. You know, it’s really good. Is it okay to say that out loud? I’m a good writer! There, from the mountain tops even. I still seem a little tightly wound in the beginning chapters. Kind of like a horse who isn’t sure what to do once the gate is opened. I really loosen up as I get going, though. I hope some editor agrees.

Just in case somebody besided me decides to read these (can’t imagine why), I’m obviously not a professional writer (yet). I’m an engineer in a Visteon axle plant. Doesn’t get much more bland than that. You’ll never see a TV drama series about an engineer who saves the world each Tuesday night by changing an axle shaft machining process.

Just about everything I believe has been shaped by the written word. But books don't force a belief; they stir the imagination so that you, the reader, eventually draw your own conclusions. We grow richer in spirit when we read, deeper in our understanding of the universe and our role in it. That's why I read. That's why I write. To offer you a bit of myself. Come along on my journey, won't you? There's plenty of room.
