Simple Revisions

The problem with writing a story is... you end up doing a lot of editing later. This is even more true if you do things like I do, writing a bunch of story and then actually doing world-building and research. Ah, the joy of setting yourself up for editing, failure, and pain. And after all that, even more revision!

Binge-Listening To Music

Many have heard of binge-watching a TV show. But what about binge-listening to a song or music artist? This got me thinking: what if they actually had to perform their songs whenever you clicked on the file or YouTube video? During these times, the poor musicians would suffer greatly as they had to perform an eight-hour concert or sing the same song a thousand times within a brief period.

Trying a New Church

My mother and I decided we would try out different churches, find one that we liked. There was a Baptist church nearby, so we figured we'd start there.
Upon arrival, a man gave us a brief greeting and handed each of us a pamphlet. We walked into the sanctuary and looked for a place to sit, and a minute or two later, the service began.
A man talked a bit and gave an opening prayer before we sang a couple of hymns. Rather than a projector showing the lyrics, we were told to turn to so-and-so number in the hymnals. Different from other churches I've been to, but it's simple enough to turn to a specific number. There didn't seem to be anyone leading the singing, whereas at other churches, you often have a person or two on stage with microphones. In this case, there was just an older woman playing piano as the congregation sang.

Back of a pew, with Bible and a hymnal on either side of it.
