    The Journey to Rediscover the Artist

    So I’m playing back yesterday’s episode of Oprah with James Frey. Definitely an interesting discussion between the m both and as a fellow writer I can understand how one decision sparked by pressure from the powers that be, spiraled out of control and the dung came flowing down on top of his head. I still think it’s unfair that not one of them (the powers to be) came out and said, “yeah, he queried it as fiction but WE thought, hey, it’s so gritty, we can make more $ selling it as a memoir.” Yeah–right–and then I woke up and remembered I don’t live on Mars.

When you were reading the book did you see these two words? START HERE If so, I deeply apologize. See, I read through the story, changing parts of it if I wanted to and when I went to bed or stepped away, I wrote “START HERE” in the manuscript. Also, I made other stupid mistakes during the revising process, like they’re instead of their or there. Anyway… Last month my instincts told me to…
