The Writing Of Poetry

Blogit poets cover the entire range. There are poets whose work is so good that they continue to elevate my view of the artform. There are also poets whose work is so bad that I'm shocked they even get clicks. Most of the poetry here, though, falls somewhere in between. Part of this reason, I... Sign in to see full entry.

The Need To Purge

I decided that it was time to pull a dozen of my poems from "The Narrow Hallway Of My Mind". This is necessary, as googling a line of your poem and it routing to this site will deem a work "published". For those of you that are entering contests and trying to publish in literary magazines, keep this... Sign in to see full entry.

It will never NOT surprise me when people get away with not doing their own work. Today I spent six hours of my life creating sales literature that the corporate marketing team should have completed over two months ago. The literature still isn't what I want, since I have to print it myself on 8 1/2... Sign in to see full entry.

What Makes A Writing Forum Worth The Clicks?

Just like many of you, I have a membership on quite a few writing sites. Some are free, some are pay, some are multi-leveled—a free option until you want to dig deeper into the features, then you have to pay. Some I joined just so I could read, others I joined to post pieces of original writing for... Sign in to see full entry.

If A Picture Paints A Thousand Words, Then Why Do I Bother Writing?

Maybe it's to drop the and pick up my or. I to, though; in fact, some that I'm 'ed. But I'm so grossly neglecting my art. So tonight, I collage. Sign in to see full entry.

Plagerism Rampant In Medical Schools

A friend of a friend, an MD--let's call her Dr. Smith--is in charge of interviewing and accepting new residents at a local hospital. Applicants to Dr. Smith's program are required to submit a personal statement (as all residency programs require). An applicant's personal statement highlights the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Lord Of The Flies ... Now.

I'm sure you've all heard about this by now.....From CNN.com: "Tanner said the students apparently planned to knock the teacher unconscious with a crystal paperweight, bind her with the handcuffs and tape and then stab her with the knife." When 9-year-olds are potentially plotting a murder, one... Sign in to see full entry.

Rejected---AGAIN.

I could wallpaper my office with rejection letters. I've saved every one in a pendaflex folder I stole from an old employer. This one-line email was a new one though. "Thanks for letting us see this; sorry to say it is not something we can use, but do wish you the best of luck with it elsewhere."... Sign in to see full entry.

"Blog, Blogger, Blogging"..."you're saying the word Blog way too much!"

I am a huge SNL fan. It's admittedly not as uproarious as in previous years, but it still has it's moments. Andy Samburg's impression of "Juno" writer Diabolo Cody had me cracking up. He doesn't try to put on the voice, but nails the characature. I was not a huge fan of Juno, but appreciated the... Sign in to see full entry.

Fifty Seven Channels And Nothin' On.

Sing it, Boss. Yes, again, more TV woes. For the kind of money that floods into that industry, you'd think there would be SOMETHING worth watching on television besides crappy reality shows and M.A.S.H. reruns. I never thought that Hawkeye's hyena laugh or Lucy's "RICKYYYYYY" would ever get on my... Sign in to see full entry.
