After four years writing random jottings in my blog, “Limping in the Light” (LITL), I started this one to concentrate on topics related to writing. After all, I am a writer. How do I know? Well, because I write. This scribbling is evidence, though hardly proof, of that claim.
The rationale behind the title is in my first post. The photo on the banner shows (barely) my daughter with a friend, many years ago, on Martha’s Vineyard’s South Beach doing just what the title says. We’ve all done it.
In this blog, “Scribbling in the Sand” (SITS), I’ll be writing and writing about writing. Anything is fair game from fiction to gripes to simple observations. It would be great to hear from you.
Apologies to the multi-talented Michael Card, who came up with the SITS name first, although I wasn’t aware of it when I first thought of it. He used it for the title of a book and a CD, but I beat him to the blog. It’s not so bad because our aims are different. He was referring to the markings Jesus made in the sand as He considered the adulterous woman set before Him. My scribbles are far less noble.
LITL isn’t going away. To the best of my ability, I’ll be updating it weekly (some would say weakly) with posts about living a life of faith while dealing with chronic illness. Those topics necessarily inform what appears here as well. One can’t be separated from one’s influences or from the core of one’s being.
Keep in touch.
Not necessarily in that order…
