The Road Goes On

Yes -- we're still here

I am an excruciatingly slow writer and I’m starting a blog in part to work on that. I recently read some good advice that urged bloggers to connect their blogging with something they do already, unless they’re willing to carve out some significant time for a new hobby.

So, for the time being, I’m primarily going to blog my way through the books I’m reading. I just finished Wendell Berry’s novel Jayber Crow and may go back to it to highlight some amazing passages and distill what I’ll take away from it. This week I’ve been reading Karl Barth’s Dogmatics in Outline and Remembering the End: Dostoyevsky as Prophet to Modernity by Travis Kroeker and Bruce Ward. Both are pretty dense – especially the one on Dostoyevsky,

“Andy’s Book Reports and Favorite Quotes” may not be riveting reading, or the best way to build up regular readers, but hopefully it will help me establish some kind of writing rhythm.

it's all about the rhythm. i'd be interested to hear what the take on Dostoyevsky is. most of what i've read says that he's in the existentialist vein, which is straight on the modernist train.
