July Update

If you followed my Instagram feed from mid-February from late May, you may have noticed that I was posting about 500 or so words of content every day for 98 days. I’ve been depressed about the current presidential administration and I needed do something to cope with this depression and with this coping mechanism, I ended up writing a second novel, which I didn’t plan or expect to do this year, let alone any year, but as if all of my projects, the ideas are stumbled upon.

When I set out to start this project, I remember something Ben Tanzer told me or said on a podcast about how he wrote anywhere (typically during his commutes to and from work) and I took that method to heart when I started down the path of writing this novel, using Google Docs to write on my iPad, even my iPhone. Instagram kept me accountable about making sure I got my 500+ words in daily. Writing in this way was out of my comfort zone but it was worth doing, and I think that’s important for any creative person is to do things that makes them uncomfortable.

Here are some excerpts of the novel (I’m calling it Teenage Wasteland: An American Love Story until an editor suggests otherwise.)

I also have some other flash fiction over in Flash Flood, which you can read here.

Also FIVE:2:ONE published some of my ribcage poems, which you can read here.

New Work in Rocky Mountain Revival

I read some excerpts of my novella-in-flash for Rocky Mountain Revival. You can listen to the entire episode here (I come in around 9:00).

I wrote a response to the Pulse shootings, which you can read over at Drunk In A Midnight Choir. I encourage you to send donations to the Zebra Coalition.
