Jordan Catalano gets an Oscar!
Yay!…to a certain generation Jared Leto will always be Jordan Catalano. All his angst and woe that he lived through was shared by millions of fans of ‘My So Called Life’. I never would have survived that period of college without the ups and downs of Jordan, or DeGrassi, but that is another article. Here is a sample of some lingo I pilfered off of IMDB:
From “My So-Called Life: Dancing in the Dark (#1.2)” (1994)
Angela: [after Jordan give her the fake i.d] Wow, It looks real. Why does -
[Jordan tries to kiss her]
Angela: . Hey. I’m- I’m sorry it’s just …
Angela: I was talking.
Jordan: No. Whatever.
Angela: So how come -
[Jordan tries to kiss her again]
Angela: Quit it! I mean you have to work up to that. I didn’t open that wide at the dentist.
Jordan: How old are you?
I love the dentist line. For a brief moment I was back at college last night, President of Student Government again, seeing Jordan Catalano win one for the team. All I needed was to see Buffy and Faith beat each other to a pulp and the night would have been complete. Well, there is always next year.
ps: I may have to start wearing those necklaces we used to call ‘whore collars’. They were so cool.
The best writers practice writing every day, even when they haven’t got a story to tell or don’t feel at all inspired. You need to exercise your writing “muscles” in the same way you would train to play football or practice the piano before a performance.

I wrote a book. It sucked. I wrote nine more books. They sucked too. Meanwhile, I read every single thing I could find on publishing and writing, went to conferences, joined professional organizations, hooked up with fellow writers in critique groups, and didn’t give up. Then I wrote one more book.
