Just Chattin’


It has been a long time since I posted, and I thought it might be a good idea to check in, just so friends know I haven’t died or something.  Writers aren’t supposed to ramble.  We’re supposed to make every word count.  I love to ramble, so today I’m going to do it whether anybody else likes it or not.

You might say I have dual personalities — not as in multiple personality disorder, and I am not making fun of people with that tragic problem, so don’t even go there.  But I do have a very serious side, which peacefully coexists with my thoroughly wacky side — my extremely innocent version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.  In real life, most people never guess I have a funny bone until they’ve known me  for years, and if I occasionally get a little mischievous and let some of the wacky leak out, their eyes get wide and they run away screaming.

I love humor essaying  just for the sheer joy of a laugh, but  serious writing on Christian themes provides the bread and butter, so that’s where the majority of my writing time is spent.  Income  is really only a part of it, though.  It’s almost a case of, “You mean, I get to write stuff that helps people, and I actually get paid as a by-product?”   I have a passion for communicating the how-to’s of growing in relationship with God. 

Sometimes humor leaks into my serious writing, and then I get myself in trouble with religious folks who no doubt chew aspirin tablets for a good time.  That type takes issue with everybody just for the sake of feeling good about being eternally mad at the whole world, so I don’t worry about them — much.

That said, I do so hope to get back to humor writing in the near future.  My friend Ornesta has been bugging me about it for a while.  She is threatening to hack this blog and do the writing herself if I don’t get busy.  Ornesta, you are even scarier than I am.
