My husband wrote this movie, not me. I can’t really imagine writing a movie, personally. But he’s good at it. Won the audience appreciation award at the 48 Hour Film Project screening in Houston this week. It’s called Analog.
My hometown has a great lit journal, which has a good blog. I liked this post on the ethics of stealing from real life in your fiction.
I’m on team Tender is the Night. I wish I had a copy with that cover on it.
“I used to feel that the novel output of Fitzgerald was like the literary version of the Myers Briggs test: whichever one a person favored was some fundamental indicator of his or her personality. Roughly it followed that ordinary and banal people liked The Great Gatsby, snotty, effete types liked This Side of Paradise, and The Beautiful and Damned was for the discerning and unconventional (I’ll let you guess in which camp I numbered myself). Tender is the Night was sort of an unknown quantity, preferred by dramatic people, maybe, or people who take pills.”

My iTunes shuffle just served me up this little treasure. Tom Petty always works for me. Happy Valentine’s Day.
I found a good home for my first published short story, at New Dead Families. They publish good work, and have the most wonderful name, don’t you think?
