Two years ago I blogged through the Rule of St. Benedict on Fridays. Last year I created "Search Term Friday," using weekly search terms to highlight and revisit old blog posts.
But it's a new year so we should start something different.
What I'd like to try to do is a series I'll call "Unpublished." Behind the scenes of this blog are years of unpublished drafts. These drafts consist of poems I didn't like. Rants I decided I shouldn't publish. Posts that didn't evolve the way I wanted them to, failed theological experiments. And a lot of partial and unfinished posts I started writing but never finished.
Here and there in all that material are some good paragraphs and sentences expressing an interesting or provocative idea, insight, opinion or perspective. So what I'd like to do on Fridays is publish some of this material. Not the bad, incoherent or inflammatory parts, but the kernels of the good stuff that might be harvested from all this unpublished material.
I hope that on Fridays these fragments will make for provocative, tantalizing and enigmatic reading.
