Larry Crowne and Blog Posts

Posted on March 15, 2012. Filed under: Blogging, writing | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

One of my favorite movies is Larry Crowne.  It is light-hearted commentary on difficult times.  Everybody loves the hero and the leading lady, but I have learned (mostly by trying to write stories) that it is the supporting actors that often “make” the story.

For example, one of the most important characters in Larry Crowne is the unemployed, former professor, one hit wonder, porn surfing husband of Mercedes Tainot, namely Dean Tainot.

Dean Tainot counts blog replies as “writing.”  Do you?  I spent over an hour crafting a particularly long reply.  Does that count?  Or, a bit like Dean Tainot, was I wasting my time?  Should I have been focused on “real” writing instead?
