Just read the news that the Joker is dead, even before he hit the silver screen.
My wife in particular liked Heath Ledger
. Spotted him in 10 Things I Hate About You
, and she said that this kid was going places. He did. I had to admit I liked his smarmy character in that movie. He played good character roles, when out of the blue he gets an Oscar nod for Brokeback Mountain
, which is a fine flick behind all the smoke and mirrors.
He was found naked, near the foot of his bed in a rented apartment, with a smattering of prescription pills and sleeping aids strewn about his form. Geez, what a way to go. At least he left something of himself behind so he can be remembered properly.
Been away for a bit, and in the meantime I've been admitted into the Horror Writers Association
and the International Order of Horror Professionals
. One of my short-shorts is in the current issue of Literary Fever (and is based on one of my Walking Man stories here), and another Walking Man story formed the basis of an upcoming story purchased by Serpentarius Magazine. So, yes, dear reader, working on your writing skills here on E2 can help you get published.
I'll try to be on more often this year. I miss you guys.
