Hat tip to Kathy Schiffer for a link to this post by Arleen Spenceley, “Being Catholic Isn’t An Excuse for Crap Writing: Lessons from a Journalist”. A couple excerpts that caught my eye:
“If you’re gonna write, you’ve got to read. And you’ve got to read good writing. ”
“Your senses are your friends. Whether what you write reads well might depend on whether you use them. “
The methods and modes we use to evangelize should be crafted and perfected – the object of a loving art. The way we speak, write, and advertise should all be approached with a awed humility. We are announcing the Most High, we should remember that we share this task with angels.
I also enjoyed the Chesterton Memes.
How about you? Read any good Catholic writers lately?
