"I believe that one of the most sound ideas in dramatic writing is that in order to create the universal, you must pay very great attention to the specific."- Lorraine Hansberry
When I started the Delect Connect some years back, I insisted on calling it a "column" as opposed to a "blog" in an effort to distinguish myself from everyone and their mama who posted random rants about whatever struck their fancies on a regular basis. Nothing wrong with that, but that's not what this is.
For starters, I'm a writer. This is what I do. But I've got this Spiderman/Peter Parker thing going. By day, I write in corporate communications. By night, I'm a super hero writing scripts, poetry, articles, and...the Delect Connect.
On the Connect, you'll find prose that examines life, love, culture, and why we do what we do -- hopefully in a way that is thought-provoking, nuanced, and engaging.
Thank you for reading.
