“Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘Write this in a book as a memorial….” (Exodus 17:14).
Asking me to critique your writing and advise you on improving it is not unlike seeking my advice for your cooking.
I know good eating when I taste it, but don’t ask me how to get from a recipe to the dinner table. I’m completely out of my element.

I have been working at learning how to write since I was a teenager. Literally.
As Paul said about spiritual things, I do not consider myself to have attained (Philippians 3:12). So, please do not interpret any of what follows as Joe bragging on himself. Rather, it’s more like “here are some things I’m learning” about the craft of writing.
Maybe someone will benefit from it. I would have forty years ago if I’d come across it.
