    If you can’t spell, do you know how to think? Inability with one leads people to wonder about the other.

    Three pages thus far on Genesis for the training on Sat. Going to publish it in our little freebie mag for Christian workers. May have to ax a one-page article to fit this all in.

    For a time, couplets were my thing. Recently, the muse settled upon the shoulders to write quatrains (single stanzas with four lines). There seems to be no rational explanation for it. It is what it is. Accept and write.

    I subscribe to that.

    “Four basic premises of writing: clarity, brevity, simplicity, and humanity.” —William Zinsser

    For nonfiction, I would add: veracity.

    Quatrains are still popping out of the toaster. I also went back to find some I’d written in the past. All total, I’ve collected 59 of them in a file. Can you say book?

    Probably need to dial back the quatrains, but they keep popping out, inspired no doubt by the new Known software that got installed two days ago. So be patient: The muse will likely get quieter before long.

    When your car quits in front of the tow truck – Forthright Magazine http://forthright.net/2017/06/05/car-tow-truck “Last week our car took out in the street, overheated at a traffic stop. I quickly entered a one-way street (the wrong way), on a little plaza, and pulled over. Parked in front of me a few yards ahead was a tow truck from our auto insurance company. God is good.”

    Written just now to a friend: The solution to having nothing to say: Click on “status update,” insert cursor in text box, start stream-of-consciousness writing. Just write. Words will appear. Also, ask:

    • What has been happening in my life, in my head?
    • What have I observed or heard?
    • What am I thinking or feeling?
    • What have I found interesting, funny, disturbing, challenging, intriguing?
