I Looked Everywhere
These are dope. Thanks Chuck!
Mr. Palahniuk, you absolutely have to grow your hair out again, it is gorgeous. As a balding man, I feel equal parts blinding admiration and burning jealousy.
It's not worth the effort to seek "redress" for that uncalled-for warning I got about committing puns here.
Meanwhile I gave away the personalized necklace and am open to donating a slew of books to anyone who is interested.
I paid a lot of money to support this blog, but at least I learned one important lesson: What subversive writing really is (i.e. puns and jokes).
Happy New Year to all. If I'm kicked off for being witty here and expressing myself in my own writing style, so be it.
Awwww. I'm a seamstress and have cheap, stretchy, red fabric. Let's do this Sir! lol
Why does this say it was published January 8th in my email? Also, I just applied for an internship at NPR today — slowly following your footsteps. Keep one eye open, Chuck.
The only rational solution to not finding the red dress photo... is to create a new one.
The world's dopiest celebrity encounter story
After seeing Parker Posey in a play, I was walking down the sidewalk with her coming in the opposite direction and we wound up doing the thing where we each tried to get out of each other's way and wound up doing an awkward pantomime.
I annoyed Parker Posey. That's it.
Here's a shout-out to Chuck's luscious hair. I can picture Chuck standing in front of the mirror just stylizing and then when it's all said and done, doing the finger guns at himself.
Also...dangit, no red dress photo :(
When I was in the 4th grade, my teacher Ms. Merola took out a small lined piece of paper and placed it on my desk in front of me. Then she handed me a pencil. And she forced me to write the pronoun "I" in capital letters until it filled the entire page. My small hand cramped up by the end. But before that moment, I would always write with the lowercase i. Maybe I was a slow learner and didn't know it had to be capitalized, or maybe this habit came from a deeper issue. I don't know.
In "Consider This" you talk about how switching to third person can communicate a kind of self-loathing or disassociation. I was wondering if I wrote a story in which the narrator used the lowercase "i" when referring to herself, would that also denote some self-loathing too?
Also...did you like how I included a little anecdote? Haha
I’d much rather see Chuck in Tyler’s chenille robe with the coffee cups on it from “Fight Club.” Would love to know what happened to that nostalgia grabber. I still want one. Actually— what happened to all the costumes from it?! Things that keep me up at night as I chase the rabbit down the hole of all things, Shirley Jackson. It’s Chuck’s fault—- but, I’m sinisterly thankful.
Unrelated but I honestly need to get back to writing basics. Do you have any advice on spending time in scene. Most of my work feels like a long monologue of someone narrating their life. How do I pull the reader back into the moment rather than a birds eye view?
Is it just me or the color black makes Chuck a kinda guy you don't wanna mess with, while in white makes him look super nice.
Gerry found a loophole in the first rule of fight club by wearing it instead of talking about it!
So do you still hate taking pictures?
