I’m too tired and brain dead to write something witty, but the final chapters are done!
Chapter 6 – Leaders Lead, but Experts do what, exactly?
Conclusion – A New Openness
Now, the real work begins. I’m not sure where I heard it, but I’ve always believed that “Writing is about rewriting, and you can’t rewrite until you write.” Time for the rewrites!
My deadline is November 1, so please read through the chapters and let me know if there is something that I need to be thinking about or working in. And do it pronto!
While you’re at it: if you fell that these drafts are worthwhile, make sure and send them to others.
Please and thank you. You’re my favorite, all of you. :)
At this rate, I’m due to be done with my first draft of this puppy by Tuesday. Feels good to be on the edge of being done with the first phase.
Here’s Chapter 5. Whoa. I did not realize that I felt as passionate about decentralized structure until I was neck deep in this. this was a fun chapter to write. I was very interesting.
It came out like a sermon, which I write every week so it was nothing new. I did stare at a blank screen for a good little while at first, though. Until I remembered what Anna Carter Florence said was Walter Bruggemann’s advice to her on lecturing: A lecture is just like a sermon, give or take 15 minutes. I decided that I needed to approach this as if a book chapter was just like a sermon, give or take a few thousand words.
One more chapter to go. Please continue to read and make suggestions!
Chapter 5 – Letting Go: The Art of Decentralization
