I was asked to write an article for the Saint Paul Area Synod to help promote an upcoming event. Since I spent the time writing that, I didn't have anything for the blog this week. So, I'll post the link to the article instead.
This isn't the first time I've been published. I wrote a magazine article for Footnote, The Journal of the Minnesota Society of CPAs in the early 1990's. A few years later, i wrote a newsletter article for an internal publication for my work at Nextel. As Secretary of the Governing Board at Shepherd of the Hills I write a monthly article for their newsletter. And also, my first blog post about going to Tanzania was republished by Bega Kwa Bega in their newsletter. (I'm not sure if the old newsletters are online. Here's the link to my blog post: https://www.timkwrites.com/blog/we-cannot-find-kidamali-tanzania-google-maps)
Now that I'm thinking about things I've written, I remember something else. When Debbie was teaching at Minnesota Waldorf School, her class would do a play every year. For First and Second grades I adapted the plays from stories. The Golden Goose in First grade and three African fables in Second grade. In Sixth grade I adapted a roman play. She had an older translation, so I updated the language and added 4 or 5 parts so that each student had a role. Those were really co-written as Debbie would make changes to my work to improve it for production.
I've done more than I had realized. That's kind of fun to think about. It gives me motivation too, as I remember all those little steps have led to a body of work. So, I'll keep taking my little steps and see what they mount up to over time.
