The straw that breaks the camel’s back is real.

Once or twice a month my wife and i volunteer at our Church. My involvement requires studying and time invested to practice a 60-second reading. This often consumes several hours of my time.

Consistently, i have the recurring conversation with myself about eliminating this one simple activity. It’s only takes a minute to read the scripture to the congregation. But it takes noticeable (to me, but to no one else) emotional energy to prepare.

Energy that often feels like too much, when added to an already emotionally-filled schedule.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
