Dear Diary,

Today is my birthday, and I am 10 years old. Double digits.

I don't feel any different. But, what the heck--cake and ice cream!

Great Grandpa sent me a card and a crisp, new five dollar bill. Usually I get $2.00 from him. He's the one who said "double digits". I guess that m... Read more of this blog post »

I am a slightly right leaning moderate. I don’t identify as a Democrat, who have a couple of good ideas and a whole bunch of bad ones, and expect us to pay for all of it. I am likewise, not a disciple of the Republican party, who have their heads buried so... Read more of this blog post »

Are readers trying to escape into sci-fi and fantasy? Has escapist literature surged ahead of other fiction genres? I wondered if others have noticed this trend, and do they theorize, as I do, that the times we live in are so full of existential dread that readers are fleeing to other realities—e...

Brian Burt Brian Burt's blog:





On a fundamental level, writing fiction is an intimate act. It's about trying to reach out and affect readers at their core; to inspire a visceral reaction, to make them consider (or reconsider) closely held beliefs. For many writers, it's also about self-expression and self-examination -- about... Read more of this blog post »

And make us lose the good we oft might win

And let him learn to know, when maidens sue,
Men give like gods; but when they weep and kneel,
All their petitions are as freely theirs
As they themselves would owe them."
