I totally took the weekend off and did nothing but read books I like, accomplishing little of value to the wider world. I hope my promises of productivity will keep you satisfied, dear Internet, because that’s all you have forthcoming for the next week. It’s the holiday season, which means family and more family and, subsequently, no time for locking myself away in the office and writing.
I do have some goals for my week off this year, though. They are, in no particular order:
- Read Letter to a Christian Nation by Sam Harris and compose a review/critique
- Work on a Christmas mystery, which is a story centered around Christmas time that is also a mystery (I actually already have this all planned out in my head and I’m quite excited about it, I just don’t have time to write it. I’ll get it done early next year and schedule it for publication the week before Christmas 2010.)
- Write a bit about Ayn Rand, objectivism, and Christianity
- Respond to a commenter on Reddit by way of an article about “testing” for Christians by attempting to elicit charity/donations
- Make some progress on the fantasy story I began over a month ago, but got stalled on due to finals and term paper (I had wanted to start publishing this in January, but it doesn’t look like I’ll come anywhere near that goal)
On the plus side, I did get a winter newsletter done on Sunday, though it took much longer than I had anticipated. This will go up either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. I’ll decide after I schedule this post.
I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed holiday. Merry Christmas everyone!
