Bad Writing

Point me to the advance ticket sales, please!

Dan Chaon posted this on his Facebook page, which is where I found it.  Sounds like a fantastic (and potentially depressing) jaunt into cold, blinding reality.  A bit like “the Bulwer-Lytton contest meets 90% of all graduate writing workshops.”  Which is exactly how I’d have pitched this.

Favorite (and probably truest) line in the trailer:  “Yeah, I had a big Hemingway boner….”

Update on the computer situation:

Speaking of bad writing….  Obviously I’m back online now, so expect to see my Writer’s Notebook posts later today or first thing tomorrow.  I’m still going to backdate them to fit where they belong, so you might have to look for them, but I’ll also post a short message in “real time” with links to them, just to keep everyone on track.  Same goes for last week’s Photo blog, too.

Also, I have a kind of backlog of topics I’ve been wanting to write about the past two weeks but, because of this computer situation, couldn’t.  I’m full up with important projects to finish and get in the mail this week, but keep an eye open for other posts anyway, because I know sooner or later I’ll crack and write up a new blog post or two just to let off the steam.
