The Art of Writing

Writing is a lot like art... The subject and circumstances of any writing project are open to interpretation. But as if with a flower - God's art - too much handling can damage the beauty. When writing about someone or something, I feel the author should choose to reveal enough information so as to illuminate but not to stop it from shining. That is what I am attempting to do with my work.

The Dark Knight

All I can say is The Dark Knight was a lot better than I expected it to be. I liked Batman Begins, but it's not one of my favorites. I think The Dark Knight is a lot better. Heath's performance was awesome! But it honestly was not him. Maybe it's because I am used to seeing him in movies like A Knight's Tale or The Four Feathers or even The Order and Brothers Grimm; but this was... Wow! You know, when Taliesin was a baby, one thing I always loved to watch in him was the twinkle in his eyes. His eyes laughed with him. When Nathanael was born, he lost it for a while. He wondered why this new baby was getting some of his attention. But, after a few months, he got it back. Nathanael's always had it. My mom used to say that you can tell a lot about people by their eyes. I think that is true. When I watched Heath Ledger in his movies up to this point, I saw a twinkle in his eyes - almost an innocence combined with an intensity. I couldn't recognize that tonight in The Dark Knight. Not that it wasn't a good movie. It was. But it definitely was not what I am used to seeing in Heath Ledger.

It's Finally Here...

Well, tomorrow (or actually, later on today) I'm off to see The Dark Knight. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I know it's going to reveal a lot to me. I've read wonderful reviews of Heath's work in this movie. I have no doubt that it's fantastic. But I still think this role took its toll on him. A lot more about that will be in the book.

A Knight's Tale

Yes, I know it's extremely late in my first time watching A Knight's Tale. I have never seen it before tonight. But, boy, was I impressed. That passion that set Heath's acting apart from others was there even back then. Mmmm.. Now back to my writing.

I have felt so inspired by working on this Heath Ledger book the past few nights. It is honestly as if this book is writing itself. It is taking a few different slants that I had pictured in my mind. Oh, well, I guess it's meant to be. It's very interesting. I have to admit my religious studies are coming through a lot more in this book that I had anticipated. I love my college classes, but I admit that God knew what he was doing when He only allowed me the finances to enroll in one summer class this year. Now I have all this month to soley dedicate to my book when I get home from work. It's really amazing!

It's Here! It's Here!

My copy of Women of Passions: Ordinary Women Serving an Extraordinary God finally arrived in the mail today. This is the book, of course, that contains my article "A Difficult Decision." When my two ornery boys gave me a break today, I sat down and read some of it. It really contains some amazing stories. For those interested, here is the link to order a copy of the book. It is definitely worth the money spent. I'm making a Christmas list right now. :^)

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. We definitely did!
I am finally going to have much more time to work on the book. I finished my summer college class yesterday, so each night when I get home from work should be able to be dedicated to writing. :^) I'm looking forward to it!
