10 Excellent Films About Authors and Writing

Posted on Jun 6, 2012 in Blog, Literature, Writing | 0 comments

In honor of the soon to be released On the Road film adaptation, I decided to make a list of my favorite films about writers and writing. I’m sticking with fiction and poetry here, because a list of films about screenwriters, playwrights and journalists would certainly make this list longer than 10 titles. In somewhat of a particular order, here are my 10 favorite films about authors and writing. Wonder Boys One of my favorite films, period. Probably because it has Robert Downey Jr...

WisCon 2012 – My Experience

Phew. I’m back! Despite averaging 4 hours/night of sleep and gaining 4 pounds (damn you Wisconsin and your tasty beers and cheese curds!), my experience of WisCon this year was fabulous.

This meant that I was calling Vancouver’s...

Grit, Meet Passion – Thoughts on “Imagine” by Jonah Lehrer

Posted on Apr 16, 2012 in Blog, Literature, Reviews, Writing | 0 comments

The best part about reading a book when it comes out is that you can close the book, leave the bar, turn on the car radio and interrupt the author speaking on NPR. I’m a slow reader and have a pile of to be reads sitting next to my desk.  I’m also a writer, and have an unfinished sequel staring at me with a mendicant blinking cursor. But when I saw that Jonah Lehrer had a new book about the neuroscience of creativity, I had to read to it right away. In many ways, I think of Lehrer as the...
