"Bad Writing" -- a remarkable film

A special treat today: we saw a new documentary, "Bad Writing." It's a funny, honest, and wry look at one man's quest to become a writer. Vernon Lott interviews writers who have "made it" to get their insights about writing and the literary world. If you've ever dreamed of being an author, novelist, poet, playwright, check this out. It will be available on Amazon Video-on-Demand September 7.

hidden in the spaces
where pages overlap
emerges good writing

: all a matter
of shuffling the
pages, of a

calendar, daily

Sounds great ~ I wonder if it will be released over here. I'll keep on the lookout for it.

Thank you, Anon, for your exquisite poem :)

Shell, they plan to release it on Amazon DVD-on-demand next week. It's by a small, regional filmmaker; they've been trying to get the "big guys" to notice them, but no luck yet.
