Not A Book Tour: Miami

I had a lot of reasons to be in Miami this past October.  While my trip to Vermont had almost no relation to writing (unless I write a story about driving through Vermont), my trip to Miami was full of writing related activities. The main reason I went to Miami when I did was toRead more

Thinking Forward and Looking Back

When I sat down and wrote out my goals for 2017, I had no idea what the year would bring me. I had an idea, but in reality I knew all of it was probably going to change. I always feel like I have to keep things constantly in the air and to be readyRead more

The Loss of an Old Friend

I found out an old friend, from the days of my depression, passed away from a rare form of cancer. She wasn’t even 40, if I remember her age correctly. I had been thinking a lot about her lately, but we haven’t spoken since about 1999/2000. In fact, I don’t even know if she wouldRead more

NaNoWriMo 2018 Reflection

It was a crazy November this year.  This NaNoWriMo was probably my most productive ever.  Yes, I did hit the 50,000 word goal, but that’s not really a challenge for me.  Today I’m going to reflect on the goals I set for myself in November, how they evolved, and what comes next. I had threeRead more
