About “Scribbling in the Sand”

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.

Have fun.

Be good.

Not necessarily in that order…

    • Thank you for your kind words, Ken. So good to hear from you. You’re probably already aware of it already, but I want you to know that your family has been a tremendous blessing to me and my family.

      For what it’s worth, I’m working on a new book even now. I just have to keep at it. Thanx for the encouragement.

  2. Hi Rick
    Not sure if this is the right place for this comment, but can’t find an email address. Nancy Feehrer shared A Song in the Storm with me, and I just finished reading it this afternoon. Well done!! I really enjoyed the story and found the characters well developed and loved Calandra and Louis’s love story. I have been to Lucca twice and love Puccinis operas so this book touched me on several levels. I also read the earlier one about Haiti, as you know, and glad to see it in print! Best of luck to a fellow writer! I am currently working on getting out a poetry chapbook with some expert tech help from my granddaughter.

    • Any place is fine for such wonderful comments, Barbara. 🙂 Thank you so much for your kind words. It makes me feel so great when people enjoy a anything I write. Since you’ve been to Lucca, the setting must have brought back terrific memories of such a beautiful place. I’m hoping to get back there one day myself. Maybe I’ll trace Calandra’s steps.

      All the best to you with your writing. I’ll ask Nancy for updates.

      Thank you again. God bless you.

Your turn...
