Show Notes:45: Jeff Medders — Tools for Writing and Avoiding Discouragement

Jeff is the host of the Home Row Podcast, a podcast with writers on writing. It’s one of my favorites and a close companion to the Pastor Writer podcast.

This spring, Jeff will be releasing his third book, Humble Calvinism. He joins me to talk about writing tools and his process for recognizing a book idea, developing the outline, and staying organized.

We also discuss what he calls the “sin of platforming.” Jeff describes the risk of writing to make our own names known. You can read more in his blog post at https://jamedders.com/confessing-the-sin-of-platforming/

Tools we discuss:

This week I began a new doctorate of ministry program in writing at Wester Theological Seminary. Great campus, great people, and a lot of talking about writing. It was a good week.
