Since I forgot to get you something, I present to you this blog post. Sorry, you can’t regift it.
Awhile ago, my writer’s group and I got together to photograph the worst possible writer’s photos our imaginations could conspire. We were limited only by the amount of gargoyle statues we owned (zero) and cats we had on site (one). Writer’s photos throughout the ages have had a spotty history filled with skulls, monocles, bizarre pets, alcohol and capes. But let’s face it: being a writer can be such a lonely business, we writers NEED our booze, cats and katanas. How else do we fight the demons that scrape our fragile minds? I think in the act of spoofing we came a little too close to the truth, so close I can see actually using a few of these in the future.
And now, presenting the SLC Write Club–a spoof on Fight Club, in that we possibly exist only in our own imaginations. And if you read all our bios it begins to sound like a terrible joke: A lawyer, a psychologist and a vet walk into a bar…
Since Russ wasn’t available for the shoot, we had Reggie stand in for him. Reggie–er, I mean Russ is a Lawyer practicing here in Utah. Although he writes legal-ese all day, Russ is a very talented humorist and science fiction writer. He is also very competent at handling all of our legal quandaries, from contracts to the best ways to thwart our enemies. Russ has a subtle humor and a near-bottomless knowledge of what’s awesome in the sci-fi fantasy field. We always love his recommendations. Russ has a very level headed approach to critique that can’t be matched!
Thank you for checking out the SLC Write club! For your viewing pleasure, please bask in our terrible writer’s photos gallery! PS-I realized at one point we all had that pipe in our mouths, even the cat. Sharing is caring!
