My bigger book project is still looming and I’m working away at it, but it’s nice to be able to seize inspiration every once in a while and just run with something new and fresh.
I woke up one morning recently with a dream still vivid in my mind: I’d dreamed of Adam (yes, the famous one from the Bible) and he was mourning his wife’s death–the first death he’d ever seen from old age.
I don’t know if anyone’s ever done this angle before (though I’d be willing to bet that they have) but I thought I’d give it a try. Its earthiness and direct-ness reminds me quite a bit of Frederick Beuchner, actually (which is a high compliment, in my mind). Anyway, if I ever finish it, I’ve definitely got some markets (some paying and some not paying) that I’ll be sending it off to.
