To All Those Who Plan to Write Their Book Someday When They Get Time



Um, you might want to get a jump on that and start NOW because the writing, revising, and sale of a book (that you didn't pay to publish) is precisely THIS complex.

Thanks to OK Go for the outstanding Rube Goldberg-style illustration! You really have to see this amazing video to believe it!

Yeah, that actually bothers me when people say "Oh, I was going to write a book, but I don't have time." As if that's all it takes to produce a marketable work is time.

Good video though, lots of fun.
That's an eye-roller for me, too, Saranna, but I do understand people like to daydream. In my mind, I still play sax onstage with Springsteen and do circus tricks standing on the back of a white horse.

Although I gotta tell you, I wouldn't go boasting how I'm going to do this someday to a real musician or equestrian acrobat. I may make up stories for a living, but I do know the difference between fantasy and real life.

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button": Did you love it or hate it?

Earlier this week, Colleen and I went to see "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", the extraordinary movie based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I loved it. Colleen not s'much.

It requires patience and a complete suspension of disbelief that modern audiences simply aren't trained for, so you've got to be in the right mood for it. The same is true of the short story, though the story and script have very little in common -- at least superficially. The story is very Fitzgerald (though it's not an example of his best writing, IMHO), and the setting -- Baltimore during the industrial revolution, Spanish Americ

APATHY AND OTHER SMALL VICTORIES by Paul Neilan is only good if you enjoy things like laughter

The only thing Shane cares about is leaving. Usually on a Greyhound bus, right before his life falls apart again. Just like he planned. But this time it's complicated: there's a sadistic corporate climber who thinks she's his girlfriend, a rent-subsidized affair with his landlord's wife, and the bizarrely appealing deaf assistant to Shane's cosmically unstable dentist. When one of the women is murdered, and Shane is the only suspect who doesn't care enough to act like he didn't do it, the question becomes just how he'll clear the good name he never had and doesn't particularly want: his own.
