Born-Again Brethren in Christ: Week #12 — Drafting, Cutting, Re-Drafting

writing-gifClick here for some background on this post.

This week, I added another 2,000 words to my article draft. I also cut an entire section — on the influence of Youth for Christ on the Brethren in Christ — from the manuscript. (I’m thinking I may have enough material here for a separate article on the evolution of Brethren in Christ youth ministry in the 20th century. Stay tuned.) In addition, I pared down one of the earlier sections (on the influence of NAE affiliation).

My goal for this article is 30 double-spaced pages (plus endnotes). Right now, I’m at 22 pages. And I still have most of my final section to write! It’s very likely that I’ll spend a lot of time paring down the article after I complete the first full draft.

(Thanks to John Fea for the excellent GIF featured in this post!)
