Your Exposed!

One of my favorite movies is Intolerable Cruelty with George Clooney and Katherine Zeta-Jones.  The witty dialogue and clever writing really keeps you hooked even when the ideas or big picture seems a little out there.  A running comment is "your exposed".  That line seems to come up in my head all the time whether seriously or as a punch line but there is only one time that it's both and that's when I put my writing out there for someone to read.  If your eyes are the window to your soul then your writing has to be the french doors that are open wide to your whole heart, mind, and soul.  I know that not all writers feel that way but I'm sure there are more than a few that do so I hope that this blog can be what you need it to be.  Whether that's a place to hide yourself or a forum to enjoy being exposed is up to you.


  1. I love that movie! LOL. Especially the part where George and Cathrine are in the elevator in Vegas and Catherine's dog is getting antsy and she say "Max!" and George comments how she name him after her ex husband in disbelief. To which Catherine remarks, "I'm sentimental". I died laughing, and that part still elicits a chuckle every time I watch the movie.

  2. I recently watched the movie, and I firmly believe that the intelligent sarcasm that was used was a nice cover for all those sensitivities that we like to hide from everyone.

  3. I'll have to check out this movie cos I've never seen it. Totally get what you're saying about good writing and witty dialogue. They're two key elements to a good story.
