from the writing front lines…

Oh, and by the way, on my way home from the coffee shop today I heard Garrison Keillor’s Writer’s Almanac, a great little show. Today he was talking about Andrew Greeley, a Catholic priest who has written more books than God. I particularly liked the following snippet:

“Greeley has now written more than 150 books, which have sold more than 15 million copies. When asked how he can write so much, he said, “I suppose I have the Irish weakness for words gone wild. Besides, if you’re celibate, you have to do something.”


Poisoned Pen Letters.

    “Besides, if you’re celibate, you have to do something [ie. write].”
    Perhaps that explains why so few Catholic priests write books!
    Between the pedophile scandals and the reality of an estimated almost 50% membership in the priesthood of non-pedophile, sexually active, healthy gay men, the true celibates are a vanishing breed.
