Bound by Words: Love, Tragedy and Faith in a Writer’s Group

The "lone wolf" writer is firmly fixed in the cultural psyche. Everyone believes the phrase, "writing is a solitary profession." There is some truth to the statement. When a person sits down to write, they're doing it by themselves with no one looking over their shoulder.  It's just them and the voice (sometimes voices) in their heads. People picture the writer, hammering away on the computer, lost in the thoughts of their own head and locking out the rest of the world.Like most cultural … [Read more...]

Philip Seymour Hoffman: Hollywood’s Greatest Chameleon

Phillip-Seymour-Hoffman

It's not often that I get depressed about the death of a celebrity. It's happened though. In September 2006, I woke up to the gut-wrenching news that Steve Irwin, better known as The Crocodile Hunter, had been impaled by a friggin' pancake fish. That sucked, I loved that guy.
