More self-promotion, please

So Bryan Parys and I started a fatherhood blog: New Dads Strut. And I’m actually liking Tumblr so far. Here we get to air all our dirty diapers. Latest post is about being adopted and expecting a birth child.

Oh, and Robert Kloss, friend of alligators and writers, interviewed me on Plumb. I talked about the merits and not-so-merits of an MFA, editing, and audience.

There was this study done (I was told this, so can’t cite) that showed that people were far more likely to see a movie if the trailer gave away the plot than if it did not. This might seem counter-intuitive–you might think we want to be surprised–but people are mostly interested in seeing things they expect to happen happen.
