Finally! The Internet Delivers: Lose Weight While Typing

| 1 Comment
Here's what I'm suggesting I do: For the next five days, I propose to allow you (the reader) into my processóin both the personal and professional sense. I'm going to work on a piece of new writing during these five daily diary entries, which will allow you (the reader) to see the creative process in action. Even if it's not very creative, at least you'll have a little something to read. At the same time, I'll be documenting my efforts at changing myself into a sleeker, fitter, and better-crafted animal. In other words: Yes, I'm trying to lose some weight.
Such is the irresistible invitation of Neil Labute, writer, director, and only the second Mormon to grace the pages of Slate's Diary.

Also in the Slate Mormon bonus pack: Chris Hawthorne on the "spooky charisma" of LDS Temple architecture. [Frankly, I'm irked that more than a few of the newer ones are decorated like Four Seasons Westins. Fosters the desire for that eternal upgrade, which is the point, I guess.]

I have a very old Mormon book it was printed in 1883 The title is Apples of Sodom. It is hand signed, To my daugher Jessamine from the auther. on the second page it is printed a story of mormon life by Etta Luce Gilchrist I was hopping someone could tell me a about this book. Thank you

Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
