Tired of Promoting

In his book On Writing, Stephen King asks the question: “What are you going to write about”? He emphatically answers his own question, “Anything you damn well want. Anything at all as long as you tell the truth.” Sounds easy, huh? Especially for Christians. Truth telling is what we’re all about.

I wish. The problem is sometimes I don’t want to tell the truth. Sometimes I don’t tell the truth. I say what makes me look good, or, equally bad, I say what people want to hear.

All this to say that tonight I don’t want to write an entry. I’m tired, tired of promoting. It’s too risky, too potentially unflattering, like an unsuccessful, high school run for student council.

Seems safer to do nothing. More tomorrow.
