Part of my creative process for writing, well, anything involves coming up with ridiculous ideas. The kinds of things that no one in their right minds would ever want me to write. (Including me. And Emily. And any publisher.) Sometimes these things turn into April Fool’s gags. Other times, they’re random concepts that I share here (which I did a while back). Today, I’m sharing a few of those:
- We’re All Visionaries Now. What does it mean to stand out as a leader—and what is a visionary leader anyway, when everyone else is one, too? Together, we’ll discover the secrets of being the most visiony visionary in a sea of visionary leaders. Visionary.
- A Year of Living Christian Musically. You’ve heard of the year of living biblically (which wasn’t all that biblical). Now, join me for what might truly be the greatest literary adventure ever told: an entire year living in light of the lyrics to Christian pop songs. How high will my hands go, how far will my arms be outstretched, and will I drown as I try to keep my eyes above the waves during a hurricane? You’ll have to read it to find out.
- The Questionable Business Practices Barber: A Financial Parable. Bobby was feeling glum about his finances, so he went to the only man he could trust to give him advice: Kevin, a barber who only accepts cash. With every haircut, Bobby learns the secrets of sticking it to the man as Kevin reaps the benefits.
Now, with those out of my head, maybe I can get some real writing done. (Maybe. But probably not.)
