Lesson Plan

The first draft is you, telling yourself the story.

Terry Pratchett

I’m not writing a book, but I like the concept of starting a project by telling myself the story. I will follow Pratchett’s advice and simply walk myself through the argument that I’ll present on Disciple School.

I have a difficult time recognizing when a given piece of content is ready to be published. For some reason, I have a difficult time publishing small chunks of information about any given subject. I tend to want an exhaustive summary of that subject before presenting it publicly. As a result, I spend a great deal of time collecting information, and not nearly enough time creating content.

I’m trying to get myself past that by forcing myself into a publishing schedule, which will require me to publish things way before I think they’re ready.

I’ll start posting articles on here in small chunks, and allow the final version to develop over time. I wrote a post about the concept called learning in public, I just never implemented it.

I don’t really have an editorial calendar in place, but I do have a roadmap of subjects that I will be addressing. Rather than completing them in some linear order, I’ll start adding to them piece by piece and allow them to develop over time.

Here’s a list of posts that I’m currently working on:


It’s my opinion that Christianity is failing. But it’s not just an opinion. I can prove it.

Define ‘failure.’
