I’m on week eight of The Artist’s Way now. So I thought I’d share what this program is doing for me as an artist, writer, etc. It’s the “etc” that I didn’t know was there. There are many issues TAW brings up that you never quite knew were there. I knew some of the issues obviously, that…… Continue reading What “The Artist’s Way” is doing for me

A couple advancements in my writing career
The word of the year for me so far is “reinvention.” I’ve always been a writer. From horrible teenage journals in the 1990s to the journalism courses of my early 20s…there’s always been pen and paper in hand. Over time, my habits and talents have evolved.

An honest mistake in a changing celebrity news landscape
This Q&A with John Mayer by New York Magazine’s pop culture “Vulture” was pretty dang funny, to say the least.
