Having just compiled "Writing on the wall" with a few other people and having had the chance to write the opening chapter and every chapter intro, I am feeling inspired to write a little book.you can buy Writing on the Wall here please do... write a review as well that will help me.
Can't seem to sort the image of the book out....
I'm just toying with a few ideas, I know what I don't want it to be, but I am not to sure of the best direction to take. I don't want to do a stories from the West end or testimony book. However i would like it to contain lots of stories and as i am a self referenced person it would probably be easier to write if I did about things that happened to me. Probably more along the lines of lessons learnt. The problem with any story book is that our story here isn't finished, but maybe thats not a bad thing.
The other thing is that by writing you could imply you had life sorted and were deep or something like that!
But I could use stories from the westend and Ibiza to help kick off chapters
Thinking of some chapter headings.
1. My way, why Frank Sinatra was wrong (Dying to self)
2. Shame ( I suffer from this, with cornflake phobias and worrying about what people think)
3. Mother God (we all need a hug and God is bigger than just a father)
4. Fear no Darkness why king Theoden was right (I'm quite fearful, so could just be honest)
5. Naked Prayer (Normality in prayer)
6. What to do when you get puked on (grace would be a good one here)
7. Condoms, lighters and bibles (good ideas and God ideas)
8. Journey (Travelling here, the journey and destination thing)
9. The Orgasmatron (big events and small communities! meetings culture etc...)
10. My swimming pool is leaking (Shallow concerns in a needy world)
11. Someones urinated in my car! (why do we worry so much about the things we own)
12. Will you pray with me? (be the prayer.. )
13. Kindness (His kindness leads us to repentance)
Can anyone see an order to these chapters? What would be a good title? Do you think these could all flow together?
Maybe the kindness theme could hold it together? or the strangers in a new land learning lessons about ourselves?
I'd value some honest comments?
