How would you live if you knew exactly when you’d die? Would that strive you to make the most of your days, or cause you to squander the time you have. What if you carried a physical clock that ticked away each second, a constant reminder of the precise moment you’d take your last breath? Those and more are the questions that drive the dystopian series, Out of Time, by Nadine Brandes.
Over the past several weeks I’ve had many ideas for blog posts: political issues, the Josh Duggar mess, story ideas, updates and everything else under the sun. Yet my blog sat empty and there was nothing new. The creative juices just haven’t been flowing that much lately, and I’ve come to find out why. I’ve recently been in something of a valley, a wilderness, a dark side cave. My race took me to the swampy surface of Dagobah and I’ve looked inside the helmet of my enemy. I’m glad to be on the other side now, and I have a few thoughts to share if you’d like to listen.
