One of the biggest issues I have as a wannabe online Christian writer is getting it right the first time. Inevitably, I find myself clicking the tab wishing moments later I had said something a different way, or not at all. I scurry over to the tab, click, and begin hammering away at the keyboard revising, adding and subtracting, rereading, amending, modifying, until with a half-witted sigh of approval I do it again – .
“But wait a second”, a voice of alarm goes off in my head, “this word would have worked better; that comma is wrong, should have been a semicolon, maybe a colon; a better phrase would be; I meant to say. . .” On and on I go.
Oh well, the bottom line is this. If you read the things I write you may want to read it again tomorrow. Perhaps I should add an button alerting my readers to wait a day or two before hitting and definitely hold off doing a because in an hour or two you may opt for .
But then, as a wannabe Christian writer, to me it is important that my effort to communicate spiritual truth be an accurate representation of that truth. So if I can say it better another way, make things clearer so that someone better understands and is helped by my humble efforts – please be kind, you may be the one the button helps most – tomorrow, of course.
