Rebelling Against Conforming / #RebelliousWritingMovement /

I stumbled across this awesome blog recently - and I decided to join in on a movement of the author's.

/It's called Rebellious Writing /

And, no, this isn't some bratty, stupid, immature, dramatic, pleasure, hateful link-up.

This is about writing good fiction.

Just check out some of the posts:


Objectification 




What we write matters.

Just like what we do or say matters.

Words are huge, people. Whether we speak or read them, they impact EVERYONE.

And that is why I am calling out all writers and readers.

What are you writing?

Are you filling a need, or spilling words to please and bring money?

What are you reading?

Are you causing your mind to grow or destroy?

Words matter.

And anyone who says otherwise is lying.
(That hurt? Well, those were simply words I wrote. Point.)

Fiction is ideas and beliefs hidden behind art. 

Fiction influences {brainwashes}.

People, what are you writing???

Are you writing words that make a difference or conform to the rest of the trash (sorry, but it's true)?

Whatever you do, Writer, don't conform.

Don't buckle under the pressure. Don't write for the money or reviews. 

Write for God. And write for people.



Edification, encouragement, entertainment.



Write purely. 

Write purposefully.

  5. I've heard about this lately. It seems pretty interesting.

    (Also, I have been slacking with beta reading your book. I'M SO SORRY. I know sorry doesn't mean much but if you don't want me to beta read your book anymore I'll understand unless you don't really have a deadline).

I love discussions, but nothing mean — I post a lot of opinionated articles, and I'd love to know YOUR opinions, even if they oppose mine. But, please, no insulting. Be nice and let's get to know one another ~ Keturah

Living Like The Amish: Interviews With Three "English" Families PART I

Many people are obsessed with the Amish.
I know at one time I was as well, and to a degree I still am.
But my perception  has changed with experience.

It started a long time ago when my family went to an Amish-held auction (no, it's not a place where you can buy Amish children, but a place where you can buy things from the Amish). I was eleven years old and enthralled to be surrounded by so many Amish. I loved the cockscomb flowers they sold everywhere. I bought a whole box for $2 and dried them for seeds so I could plant my own.
But then I experienced my first reality shock concerning the Amish.
I had assumed since they lived a simpler life everything about them was completely old-fashioned and natural.
Imagine my horror when I saw Amish walking around with soda cans and store-bought ice cream.

"Mom," I said. "He's drinking soda!" 


During my years living with the Amish I learned a lot about them. As individuals. As a culture. And about their history. Recently…

Inside The Land Of The Free

Hello.
My name is Greg. 
I have a lot of time to think. Too much time. Sometimes I think about my life - why I am sitting in prison. I wonder what I could have done different - my life plays before my eyes.
"If only..."
But even I know that no amount of good works would have stopped tyranny from finding fault with me.
It is cold.
My clothes are thin.
My stomach is empty - occasionally filled with food of no sustenance. 
I hide my face in my knees - as if that will somehow protect me from the horrors of this dark cold dungeon. 
They keep it cold to freeze me, this I know.
It is a part of their game - to drive a lesson into me.
As if I have a lesson to learn solely because I was convicted.
Convicted, but not  guilty.
Years. 
68 years for standing against injustice.
How many years have I sat in here?
I have forgot.
All I know is this question, "Was I fated for this? Did God grant my birth just so I could spend life as if dead?"
I cry out to God - does He hear me?
I do not know. I can no…

It Doesn't Take a Genius to Recognize Corruption

After attending the writer's conference I had the opportunity to spend a week with my dad in Las Vegas (we went to federal court trials).
I don't usually speak much of his work as I'm not sure all what to say about it. He keeps the public updated with what's happening in court, with all the many men locked up that he's trying to help out. I think he said there are like 19 guys right now that he is specifically trying to help release. 
{If any of you have heard of the Bundy Ranch Stand Off, you'll know a little of what he is doing}
I won't go into too much detail with his work. I will say if you want to know more of how to help out and learn what's going on just do some googling - my dad's name is John Lamb. You should be able to find plenty on him ;p
Anyways, I was quite shocked the first day.
Security didn't surprise me at all. Very much like an airport ;p  Except, most of the security was actually nicer ;) I was very pleased with security as far …

I'm Not Into Politics, But...

“Hey, did you hear what's happening with those guys in Oregon from Malheur Refuge?”
“No. Tell me about it!”
“A bunch of guys felt that their rights as US citizens were being violated, so they decided to take back a bit of land for the “people” as a sign to the federal government to back off, and now they are all facing years to life in prison for 'terrorism' and-” My words slow down as I see the person's face slowly becomes void of emotion. Bored? Or do they not like what I'm saying…? Have I just lost a friend? What did I say????




“Oh. Yeah.. I'm not really into politics.” They say.
“Oh, OK.” I say. But inside something feels wrong. Not into politics???
Hey, I hate politics. I despise them. So much stress, and fighting, and corruption. But… it's a part of life. Or is it???
What if I told you Fred's barn just burned down and we were going to go do some things to encourage him and help him out. Get some guys to rebuild it. Make him some meals. You, know, …
