Judy Blume and Stephen King, Together!
I went to a play at the Ringwald in Ferndale last Saturday. The work was written by Lisa Melinn and Dyan Bailey. Are You There God? It's Me, Carrie.
Hilarious production partly from the writing, partly from the acting, and in large part because of how well Judy and Stephen's works fit as co-inspiration.
I think both authors have produced some frightening work. They're a natural match.
I love satire. I loved Art Buchwald and Mike Royko. We are the less without them.
I have a revised outline based on a draft of a lovely work I want to publish as satire and humor, though I'm not good enough yet. Joseph Heller I'm not - at least not today.
So, on with a new work just like all of you. There are the books we want to write and the books we're able to write. Sometimes these are the same. Often, they are not.
Doesn't stop us from dreaming. Or laughing.
Go see a play. It'll be good for you.
