Part 2 of Movie Talk at GreenLake Presbyterian Church

Tonight I’ll present Part Two in my review of “Meaning in the Movies of 2004,” at GreenLake Presbyterian Church at 6 p.m.

It wasn’t supposed to be a two-part presentation, but you know me… rambling on and on, I didn’t even make it to the halfway point when my time ran out last time. So tonight, I’ll offer a much more efficient and time-sensitive presentation to wrap things up.

Visit the church Web site for directions and contact information.

    I mean it when I say this: The greatest joy of this whole development is seeing the joy on the faces of my writing teachers, hearing my family celebrate across a phone line, and seeing how many of you are excited about this. For me, honestly, the real excitement comes when I sit down to write the stories. Yes, I’m grateful and happy, but for the most part, I’m in a state of bewilderment that these stories I so enjoy discovering continue to resonate with others. So I’m thriled to share this with all of you, but even more than that–I’m excited to know that storytelling will continue to play a big part in my future.

    That Rocks. You suck. I have such mixed emotions right now. It’s always good to see a struggling writer succeed, (esp one that I can at least lay claim to knowing when his book knocks the latest Harry Potter off the charts: “Yes, I knew him back when. Well, not exactly knew him, but I left comments on his blog”). It’s always dissapointing when, you know, it’s not me….

    But you give the rest of us hope. Congrats.

    Well, its about time.

    Just make sure you use your new found fame to help your wife get her excellent poetry noticed.

    Also, remember to take of your family (including extended family) once you are riding the heights of literary fame.
