As much as I love writing theological treatises, I have other writing passions as well. I LOVE to write fiction...in fact, much of how I "work through" issues involves watching characters in my mind living things out and talking to each other.
I know, it's weird. But that's life as a writer. As Popeye said, "I yam what I yam."
Most of my fiction never leaves my head. But a lot of it would like to. And maybe it even should!
I also occasionally get struck with bouts of poetry, and this new blog will give me an outlet for that as well.
Also, I have lots of older works of short fiction and poetry sitting around. Some of my works have been featured in this blog, and much has been featured in writing contests at FaithWriters. (I'm no longer a paying, contest-entering member, but it's a great outlet for Christian writers, so check it out!) In order to kick-start my new blog, I'm re-posting my favorites over there at an anticipated rate of one per day.
Sooooo, if you like short fiction and/or poetry, please come check out "Weightiness and Whimsy." I chose the title because (as you've probably guessed), the content will run the emotional gamut. Currently (as of the morning of 3/4/13), it contains two works of short fiction, one that I would call "heartfelt," and another that is pure whimsy. They're both older works, written in 2008 for writing contests. I hope you enjoy them.
If you're hoping for newer content, never fear! I have a work of very heartfelt short fiction that has been percolating in my brain for days. In fact, it's the reason I decided that I really needed an outlet for my stories. Maybe if they get out, they'll quit bouncing around in my head distracting me!
Or maybe not.
And don't worry...I'm still going to finish the series I've started here. And I still expect that most of my writing will be for this blog, not the new one.
Anyway, please come check out the new blog, and let me know what you think!
