Why the blog 'is'

I'm a writer. I'm not exactly a published writer (that 5th grade poem doesn't count) but that does not make me any less of one at heart. You are what you are, even if it's a cliché. (If you desire, you can read more about the 'why' behind the 'am' here.)

I believe that it is important for writers to look at the writing of others, both good and bad, and learn from it. That is how this blog was born. I see such good in the writing on Bones (and sometimes a bit of bad) and I am constantly striving to learn from it.

I partly blog to promote this show I love. Here you'll find typical show tidbits - show news, cast information, programming notes, and the like. The writing isn't all I love in Bones (you can start with romance, move quickly to David Boreanaz, on to Emily Deschanel and go from there...). I want to both build up the show and simultaneously deconstruct it. You'll find in-depth reviews, as I can complete them, of every show. They aren't recaps; Fox does that for us on the official site and you can hit Wikipedia to fill in the gaps for many episodes. You'll find that I focus much more on the writing and the relational story arcs. I hope they bring to you something you don't see in other reviews/recaps out there.

I welcome comments & suggestions. Please feel free to comment on specific posts, or email me at obsessedwithbones@gmail.com.

Happy Bonesday!
