Here's a neat tidbit: on this day in 1954, The Fellowship of the Ring was published. I'm thinking it's time to pay another visit to Middle Earth. The Lord of the Rings envelopes me in its world, but it also challenges me. I wrote about this a couple of years ago for The Daily Union and I've posted that column here.
While you're reading, Mark's post for The Master's Artist today is thought-provoking and enlightening. He reminds me that we serve a God who is not tame, not safe, but he is good.
Let me also direct you to an article by Chip Scanlon at Poynter, "The Sound on the Page: An Interview with Ben Yagoda." It's about finding your voice as a writer and includes links to more resources.
