Wednesday’s work: My latest playlist

Like a lot of other writers, I use a music playlist to help with creativity. When I create new playlist, I’ll often list to it obsessively while I go over and over certain scenes in my mind. By doing this I can work out plot kinks, generate new ideas, and maintain a high level of […]

If it feels like my house move has been going on for ages, that’s because it has. I started looking for a place a few months ago. Then there was the loan application and the closing process. All of you who have been through this process before, you know just how much fun I was […]

I have this blog that I almost never post on, so I’ve decided it’s time to start using it again. Recently I’ve been thinking about milestones and such, and as I’ve been looking back over the last eight years, I realized I’m coming to the end of an era and starting a new phase in […]
