    A little backstory: I had a deep cavity in a wisdom tooth filled about three weeks ago, and it's started bothering me a lot lately and at night. So I'm headed to the dentist this afternoon to get it...

    This may not be all that applicable to this thread, but I have felt "marginalized" in virtually every scenario I've ever been in, for my entire life. It was only when I began to recognize that this...

    Maybe I just run in different circles, but I can't think of any times I've seen "mansplaining," as described in this thread. I certainly don't do it, and neither does anybody I know, that I can think...

    I actually feel like an engineer. Some days I feel like I'm really earning my pay.

    Today was one of those days. :dizzy:

    On a fantasy fiction forum I'm a member of, I remember somebody posting what might be the best idea for a novel ever. This is a paraphrase, and keep in mind that this poster worded it better:

    Just so I understand: Trump gave an opinion on an actress being overrated, and somebody fact-checked this?

    Huh. I'd say that I can't take fact-checking seriously anymore, but I'm not sure I was...

    She can't be overrated. Just look at how highly she's rated!

    I'm certainly nowhere near Tolkien's level, and would never claim to be, but the idea of writing something that is profoundly Christian without being explicitly Christian, as you put it, is really...

    Well, I don't know exactly what I was trying to say with the headaches. One of those things I threw in because it seemed to make sense in the moment. I guess that's another thing to try to figure out...

    Yeah, me too.

    Also, it occurs to me that my ending as-is may be a bit too happy...methinks maybe I should throw in a little more bleakness. What do you think?

    I like this explanation. While sometimes I like a happy ending, the deliriously happy endings usually irritate me and make me want to go write a story where the narrator dies, or something.

    I probably don't keep mine as closely guarded as I should. Hopefully I won't regret posting about this thing on here in six months' time.*

    Asking some people about their take on my book has yielded more than one, "Huh, that interpretation never even occurred to me--and I wrote it" moments on my part.

    Here's a random thought that might help clarify my own thinking here:

    I've noticed a lot of Christian reviews--like PluggedIn--of popular movies focus very strictly on content: violence, language,...
  22. How should my faith influence my writing/art/etc.?

    Let's say that I'm writing a novel (because I am). To what extent would you say that my Christian faith should influence my writing, and what should that influence look like?

    There seems to be a...
