The Broadway Syndrome

The Broadway Syndrome
I really like this song, and the video, but it brings up something that slightly amuses me. If you watch the video, you'll see that TobyMac is walking down a street randomly singing, and nobody seems to care. I love it how that happens. I guess you could call it the Broadway Syndrome.

I know it's staged, but it kind of drives me crazy how many people walk right past Toby and don't even see him. If I was on that music video, I would definitely NOT be standing nonchalantly on the street. I'd be jumping around saying, "Oh my goodness, it's TobyMac!!!"

...But maybe that's just me.

Writing Tips?

Writing Tips?
I've been thinking about writing lately, which, for me, is kind of like thinking about breathing. :) One of the best things I've done is make myself JUST WRITE. It doesn't matter if my spelling and grammar stink or even if the writing makes sense. I can fix that later. It's all about getting the ideas out of my head and onto my paper.

I decided last night that while thinking about what you're going to write is good, if I don't stop thinking and actually WRITE it, it won't get written at all. Deciding to open a document and let my fingers on the keyboard and imagination go wild is one of the best things that I have done in my writing journey.

What about you? What are some things you've found helpful in your writing? What is one important piece of advice that you would want to pass on to other writers?

You know mine: JUST WRITE! :)

"I have loved you with an everlasting love." -God

"I have loved you with an everlasting love." -God
As I run out the door, I wanted to share this awesome quote with you (above). It's become one of my favorites. It is a verse from the Bible - somewhere in Isaiah, I believe - but I'm not sure of the reference. I just think it's amazing to think about. God, the God of the universe, loves ME with an everlasting love? One that will never pass away, never fade, never die? Wow. Now THAT is cool. :D

He loves you too with that kind of love. Don't forget that. :)

Everlasting love. It's yours.
