So I love that November 1st fell on a Thursday because one, I can post this post at the perfect time and two, it lets me post this post at the perfect time!
Last month I hand-copied the book of Acts, which has 28 chapters, in 30 days. Technically I actually finished in 28 days, writing a chapter a morning (or thereabouts) without taking any grace days. This is contrasting to how Sarah Ruszkowski did it. She copied five or so verses at a time, coming back to it throughout the day as she had time and a desire to.
I’m the kind of person who does it all in one go (or, at least, tries to) so the way that worked for me was doing it all in the mornings when I have time set aside anyway.
I found copying the Bible to be a very good exercise. I learned things about historical Biblical events that I’d forgotten or never even knew to begin with, came up with questions that I really should be asking my pastor, and excitement that there is literally nothing stopping me from doing more of this with other books of the Bible.
