Hello, if you're puttering around this site, you're already aware that it has two blogs with current posts (three, if you count the RSS podcast feed for The Fourth Wall).
The first, Bloggy B. Bloggington, DDS, received weekly updates of the "anything goes" format. After writing in that space for two years, I had done nearly 80,000 words of writing. Sadly, none of it really goes together. It can't make a book that I put out there in the world. At least, it wouldn't make a very good one.
The second has ambitions to be something else. In If A Story In This Blog Goes Over 1000 Words, This Whole Website Will Explode, I've endeavored to write a new flash fiction story every week (taking a break every 9 weeks, because a human being can only do so much, or so my therapist keeps telling me). I hope to get a book of flash out of the prospect (tentatively titled If A Story In This Book Goes Over 1000 Words, This Whole Book Will Explode). I'm six months in and only kind of regret the whole prospect, although in a definite plus it has forced me into a much more disciplined approach to short fiction.
Now, here a third official blog. As of late, I've watched a lot of old Siskel and Ebert clips. It's slowly become an obsession. I've even read Ebert's first book of hated films, appropriately titled I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie. I'm a little shocked Siskel never wrote a book before he passed. I've watched Life Itself, and thought it was equal parts haunting and effecting.
So, I decided to try my own hand at the criticism game. I also want to document the movies I see, as the list keeps growing and parts of it become less memorable with time. So here you'll see brief entries about movies as I watch them. Some of them might be new movies I watched, others might be old favorites. The entries themselves won't be long, as I can't rationally have this take time away from other writing. Maybe it could make a book at some time, maybe not. For now, I'm not even going to actually list the blog on the site. This might change with time, but for now, if you've found this, you're unusually gifted at searching site directories, and have given almost as much, if not more thought to my work than I have. Good job?
