We have begun to organize an online journal at NCF. At first, it was thought we might try to post several articles a week, much in the style of a college newspaper. But as we took a closer look at our resources, it became clear that such a publishing schedule would be exhausting and promote burnout. Even more importantly, it would probably kill the lightness and enthusiasm one needs for great storytelling.
That is ultimately what I hope we will pursue: Storytelling. I love the thoughtful and provoking writing which comes from Mockingbird
When one is struggling just to produce and keep on schedule, how can one be truly creative, free and reflective.
I want our writers to come from a place of delight and service, and not obligation.
Sara Grove’s How can I tell captures the spirit of this storytelling spirit which comes from overflow rather than deficit.
