You either love John C. Reilly’s Dr Steve Brule character or you’ve never heard of him. He is a riff on public access experts who often fill air time with obvious advice and often loses his way during a thought. In re-reading some of my posts I often feel that he is my writing guru and that is because 1. I tend to publish first drafts and 2 . I don’t usually edit or proof anything before I post it because I’m hurrying to get work done and the blog is just for fun.
So when someone writes in with something nice to say about the writing I’m usually shocked, but I certainly appreciate it.
