I have a couple of things to say.

First of all, some people need to blog, and in a hurry. You know who you are.

Second of all, in my catch up reading, I found a very interesting piece--a manifesto--about the digitizing of all the books in the world. It was in the New York Times Sunday magazine either last Sunday or the Sunday before. I want to know if anyone read it, and if so, if you will talk to me about it.

Third of all, I'm announcing my intention to briefly (a) take the word creative out of circulation, and then (b) repatriate it to refer to all kinds of writing. In fact, consider both (a) and (b) done and done, as of this writing. If anyone would care to discuss this matter with me, you know where to find me.

Finally, I am in the process of beginning my long-awaited (at least, long-awaited by me) movie-making venture. I am, to start, using bits of footage of my granddaughter. Right now, I am working on "The Miriam Project Part 1: She Swears." World Premiere planned for this summer.


  1. I have not read the NY Times piece, but I do want to talk to you about it--and I'm good at that (discussing things I don't really know anything about).

  2. That's good news about the movie. We still need to arrange our SLC home movies gone wrong festival.

  3. Did you make sure to get parental permission to use the Miriam footage? We'll require at least 60% of all revenue gained from the distribution of this film as well as all merchandising rights.

  4. The cool thing about my job in Michigan is that they're really into the idea of "writing" without modifiers. Teaching all kinds of nonfiction, creative or otherwise, makes one apply thoughtful art to all kinds of writing...but, I still take care to claim my title of creative writing prof. We'll see how long that lasts.
