    Anne Lamott: "Bird by Bird" - Santa Barbara Writers Conference - Mystic Ink Publishing Voices of the Masters Series - 1996

    Anne Lamott: "Bird by Bird" - Santa Barbara Writers Conference - Mystic Ink Publishing Voices of the Masters Series - 1996

    Anne Lamott is an American novelist and non-fiction writer whose nonfiction works are largely autobiographical. Lamott's writings, marked by their self-deprecating humor and openness, cover such subjects like alcoholism, single-motherhood, depression, and Christianity.
    Her best selling Bird by Bird had just been published when she spoke to the 1996 Santa Barbara Writers Conference.
    On Amazon's page it says:
    From the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author: An essential volume for generations of writers young and old. The twenty-fifth anniversary edition of this modern classic will continue to spark creative minds for years to come.
    Lamott's life was documented in Freida Lee Mock's 1999 documentary Bird by Bird with Annie: A Film Portrait of Writer Anne Lamott. Because of the documentary and her following on Facebook and other online networks, she is often called the "People's Author".
    Lamott has described why she writes:
    I try to write the books I would love to come upon, that are honest, concerned with real lives, human hearts, spiritual transformation, families, secrets, wonder, craziness—and that can make me laugh. When I am reading a book like this, I feel rich and profoundly relieved to be in the presence of someone who will share the truth with me, and throw the lights on a little, and I try to write these kinds of books. Books, for me, are medicine.

    DEATH: (A Love Story) - Audiobook Excerpt

    *DEATH: (A Love Story) is an Award Winning Finalist in the 2020 International Book Awards.*
    WARNING! YOU COULD DIE LISTENING THIS BOOK!
    When's the last time you had an intimate heart to heart chat with your death?
    Have you ever?
    Now is your chance.
    Hi, I am your Death and I am here for you.
    No wait, don’t go!
    Aside from the fact that you can’t get away, I’m not here for you in that way, at least not now, although to be honest with you we do have a date and I am always with you whether you acknowledge me or not. If you want to know the truth I'm not your death, but you are mine. Now don't freak out on me.
    It's only a visit.
    I want to spend some quality time with you before the “big event” and seeing as you took the time to stop by and I have you as a captive audience I thought it would be nice to have a little visit and get acquainted.
    I have friends in more places than you can imagine and my eyes and ears are everywhere including all knowledge in every cell of your neurons, dendrites, mitochondria, organs, and anything else you can imagine.
    I’m here to tell you stories and share some science, history, and myths, all of which are your creations that I want to share to help you understand me more. You have seen me as Satan, Anubis, Mot, Thanatos, God, the Devil, loving, punitive, dark, light – the list goes on and on! It is my sincerest hope that our friendly reintroduction here will change the way you think of me, and maybe in some small way reflect the depth of the love I have for you.

    Charles Schulz the creator of Peanuts and all the unforgettable characters he created was a regular at the https://www.sbwriters.com/ (Santa Barbara Writers Conference) and was known to everyone by his nickname "Sparky".

    Bob Kane: "Batman and Me" - Santa Barbara Writers Conference - Mystic Ink Publishing Voices of the Masters Series - 1995

    Bob Kane: "Batman and Me" - Santa Barbara Writers Conference - Mystic Ink Publishing Voices of the Masters Series - 1995

    Robert Kane (born Robert Kahn October 24, 1915 – November 3, 1998) was an American comic book writer, animator and artist who co-created, with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Finger (Bill Finger), the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DC_Comics (DC Comics) character https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman (Batman). Kane was inducted into the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_book (comic book) industry's https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Kirby_Hall_of_Fame (Jack Kirby Hall of Fame) in 1993 and into the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eisner_Award (Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame) in 1996.
    In early 1939, DC's success with the seminal superhero https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman (Superman) in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Action_Comics (Action Comics) prompted editors to scramble for more such heroes. In response, Bob Kane conceived "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman (the Bat-Man)." Kane said his influences for the character included actor https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_Fairbanks (Douglas Fairbanks)' film portrayal of the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swashbuckler (swashbuckler) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zorro (Zorro); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonardo_da_Vinci (Leonardo da Vinci)'s diagram of the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ornithopter (ornithopter), a flying machine with huge bat-like wings; and the 1930 film https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bat_(1926_film)#Remakes (The Bat Whispers), based on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Rinehart (Mary Rinehart)'s mystery novel https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Circular_Staircase (The Circular Staircase) (1908). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Finger (Bill Finger) joined Bob Kane's nascent studio in 1938. An aspiring writer and part-time shoe salesperson, he had met Kane at a party, and Kane later offered him a job https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_writer (ghost writing) the strips Rusty and Clip Carson. He recalled that Kane
    ...had an idea for a character called 'Batman', and he'd like me to see the drawings. I went over to Kane's, and he had drawn a character who looked very much like Superman with kind of ... reddish tights, I believe, with boots ... no gloves, no gauntlets ... with a small https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domino_mask (domino mask), swinging on a rope. He had two stiff wings that were sticking out, looking like bat wings. And under it was a big sign ... BATMAN.Finger said he offered such suggestions as giving the character a cowl and scalloped cape instead of wings; adding gloves; leaving the mask's eyeholes blank to connote mystery; and removing the bright red sections of the original costume, suggesting instead a gray-and-black color scheme. Finger additionally said his suggestions were influenced by https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Falk (Lee Falk)'s https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Phantom (The Phantom), a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Print_syndication (syndicated) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newspaper (newspaper) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_strip (comic strip) character with which Kane was familiar as well. Finger, who said he also devised the character's civilian name, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Wayne (Bruce Wayne), wrote the first Batman story, while Kane provided art. Kane, who had already submitted the proposal for Batman at DC and held a contract, is the only person given an official company credit for Batman's creation. Comics historian https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Goulart (Ron Goulart), in Comic Book Encyclopedia, refers to Batman as the "creation of artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger".
    According to Kane, "Bill Finger was a contributing force on Batman right from the beginning. He wrote most of the great stories and was influential in setting the style and genre other writers would
