In the last three weeks, I have read three books by three famous authors, and all three were very disappointing. The last one, in fact, disappointed me so much that after I read the last page, I stood up and chunked it across the room. Before the bibliophiles hunt me down, let me state my… Continue reading On Writing: Lousy Finds from an LFL →
With the foreseeable forecast being nothing but rain, rain, storms, and rain, I think I’ll take some time to reflect upon all the things in life that bring me joy. Things like: When my feet stick to the tub when I first get in the shower, and then I lift them up one by one… Continue reading Channeling Julie Andrews →

Tell The Truth To Yourself, Not To Me (The image tells us that he’s a developer. But let’s assume he’s a writer.) I’m going to ask you this one question: Is writing authentically your passion? Understanding passion Long ago, I was in doubt. Is writing actually my dream? Is it what…

We were so close, one of us would spend the night at the other’s every weekend. We called each other’s mothers “Mom.” We shared a locker, clothes, even a… Continue reading Death of a Friendship →
In December of 2019, I met a newlywed couple at a Christmas party. They had recently come back from their honeymoon, which included a cruise. One night the crew put together a game night for all the passengers, which included a version of The Newlywed Game.

This was a social media project that involved, like most social media projects, good lighting, catchy hashtags, and good-looking people making looking good look effortless. And while I didn’t hate being in charge of this… Continue reading On Writing: Creating Content →
Along with freezing temperatures and delayed school starts, March winds always blow in allergies. I don’t know what exactly I’m allergic to, but whenever the weather changes here in Tennessee, I find myself surrounded by a pile of tissues, bereft of the will to leave the couch. Thus, I’ve done a lot of reading this week, mainly… Continue reading On Writing: Fear of Not Being the Best →
