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.

Litlando 2017

I’m going to be running my Performing Your Work workshop at this Saturday’s Litlando, an awesome one day writing conference. I enjoyed doing this last year and this year is no different.

How it works is you have two minutes to read your work and me and my panel provide feedback about your performance. From my experience in writing programs, performance isn’t something that’s taught or considered important and this workshop is a way to kick that aspect of writing off for you.

Tickets are $25 ($15 if you’re a student). All proceeds will go to Page 15. To get your tickets (and maybe be a part of the performance your work workshop), click here.
