Editing

Our next book, Coffee Shop Conversations: Making the Most of Spiritual Small Talk, will be coming out in Winter, 2010. We even have a new beautiful cover design which is helping motivate us. See attachment :)

But the work of writing and editing happen now. Today and every day of this month (except when we travel for speaking), Dale and I are editing our manuscript.

We need prayer specifically this month for our partnership dynamic. Dale and I both have strong ideas about where each section of the book needs to go. Sometimes we agree, sometimes we don't. We ask you to pray for:
  • trust in one another as we edit, crop and delete each other's hard work
  • humility as we receive critiques from our editor and each other
  • zeal and determination to insert new stories so as to make the reading more enjoyable
  • desire to get to bed at a decent hour so we have enough morning hours to write well
  • A quick memory to recall all that we've talked about with each other and on the road to add to this manucript
Our deadline is May 30th. Back to work!
Jonalyn and Dale
