Wright’s Writing Corner: Diamonds, Piano, Chicken

Posted July 16, 2014 By John C Wright

The latest from my beautiful and talented wife: http://www.ljagilamplighter.com/2014/07/16/wrights-writing-corner-the-diamonds-the-piano-and-the-chicken/ Excerpt:   What does your character want? This is one of the number one things aspiring writers leave out of their manuscript. They tend not to tell the reader what the character wants. In particular, the reader needs to know: What is the character’s goal? What […]

The Wright Perspective: On Reason

Posted July 9, 2014 By John C Wright

My latest us up over at Every Joe: http://www.everyjoe.com/2014/07/09/politics/downfall-generation-mistrust-intelligence-reason/ If a vast, cool and unsympathetic intelligence from the remote and arid world of Mars were to observe the modern political scene of the post-Christian and English-speaking part of our world, his observation may note the lack of honesty in our public discourses, the lack of […]

The Wright Perspective: On Beauty

Posted July 3, 2014 By John C Wright

My latest is up at EveryJoe: http://www.everyjoe.com/2014/07/03/politics/robbed-of-beauty-by-the-left/ I usually write about trivial things. This is perhaps the most important column I have ever written, because it explains the central mystery of our time: why our age alone of all ages of Christendom has no fine arts, no public effort to create and retain beauty. Unfortunately, […]

How not to Redeem the Wicked in Fairy Tales

Posted July 2, 2014 By John C Wright

This is perhaps my favorite essay written by my wife: http://www.ljagilamplighter.com/2014/07/02/wrights-writing-corner-redeeming-villains-how-not-to-do-it/ There has been a trend of late that I find quite disturbing. It is the “Let’s Redeem A Villain” movie. Now, keep in mind, I am all about redeeming villains. Were I not, would I have married one of the Evil League of Evil? […]

The Wright Perspective: On Virtue

Posted June 26, 2014 By John C Wright

Because I complained, there are now fewer ads for porn stars on my page there. http://www.everyjoe.com/2014/06/25/politics/lefts-twisted-perspective-virtue/ In two senses of the word it is absurd for Leftists to spread the idea, or Conservatives to entertain the idea, that the Left somehow occupy the moral high ground rather than, say, […]

The Wright Perspective: On Truth

Posted June 18, 2014 By John C Wright

My latest column, with a shiny new graphic, is up at EveryJoe. http://www.everyjoe.com/2014/06/18/politics/leftists-think-truth-is-not-true/ It is crucial to the worldview and self esteem of the Left that they regard themselves, despite all evidence to the contrary, as being morally and intellectually superior to their honorable opposition on the Right. A century long nightmare of the mass […]

Quote of the Day. Now with Paint Chips!

Posted June 4, 2014 By John C Wright

From Larry Correia, International Lord of Hate: Somebody suggested [as an alternate term for Social Justice Warriors, SJW] Perpetually Outraged Cockroaches, but that abbreviates to POC, and that is already being used for People Of Color, which is the supposedly not racist version of Colored People which is extremely racist. Got it? I seriously hate […]

Conservatives are From Mars, Leftists are From Venus My latest is up at EveryJoe: How angels arrange their affairs is unknown.

My latest is up at Every Joe: http://www.everyjoe.com/2014/05/28/politics/why-christianity-is-more-logical-than-atheism/ I was taught my whole life that the Christian Church was a bastion of unreason, not just a nursery where men believed in superstitions as rank as a belief in Santa Claus, but also a lunatic asylum where men believed three equaled one and dead men could […]
