Editorial--Creativity and The 24 Hour Project by Nick LeBlanc

It was a great experience, it is always thrilling to see actors practice their craft, taking your words and ideas and breathing them to life, seeing the way they choose to bend your phrasing, punch up your humor, and internalize your conflicts.

A Year in Books--THE BODY ARTIST

Don Delillo is the type of writer that intellectuals and psuedo-intellectuals demand that you must experience--in at least some context--if you ever want to consider yourself a true fan of literature.  I'd like to lead by saying that I entirely disagree...

A Year in Books--SHALLOW GRAVES

The first book in A Year of Books was SHALLOW GRAVES: The Hunt for the New Bedford Highway Serial Killer by Maureen Boyle.  

This was my first-ever experience reading true crime.  I am a serious fiction-head, the majority of the little non-fiction reading I do usually being in philosophy or psychology.  So, this was an entirely new experience for me.  That being said...
