A La Carte (8/19)

Phases of Writing - I can completely identify with this article. “Writing a book is like giving birth to a snarling 8 headed monster. It’s so much more than sitting down in front of your laptop and typing. It’s more like a war, as your own words and ideas battle you and each other. In writing your hopes, dreams, fears and inadequacies are exposed. You learn what it is you most want in life and how incompetent you are to actually achieve it.”

Ministry of Rebuke - Kevin DeYoung just finished up a series of posts on the ministry of rebuke.

Sacred Ground - Douglas Wilson wrecks the argument that secularists can declare Ground Zero sacred ground.

GeoTags - Here’s a warning worth reading if you like to take photos using your cell phone. “Security experts and privacy advocates have recently begun warning about the potential dangers of geotags, which are embedded in photos and videos taken with GPS-equipped smartphones and digital cameras. Because the location data is not visible to the casual viewer, the concern is that many people may not realize it is there; and they could be compromising their privacy, if not their safety, when they post geotagged media online.”
