It’s time for me to face facts: I SUCK at writing every day for #31Days.  Publicly, at least.  At the bare minimum, Ive produced words, ideas, prayers, grumbles, moans & drivel into journals almost every other day.  If not there, I type into Evernote when I know my fingers can’t keep up the speed to […]

In late July, I parlayed all over the San Jose Conference Center, soaking up every doggone minute of the Blogher ’14 conference which was EVERYTHING. I’d been chosen as A Voice of the Year & asked to read my self-nominated piece, Letting The Stupid Little Nigger Go.  (You can watch my read-through here). //// Picture […]

medium be damned

Yesterday, I shared how I need my blog to be different.  Per my promise, today is pt. 2 in which, I hope I can explain why being a writer can kiss my bootay. One of the biggest revelations I had on my bloggy hiatus was this:  I don’t want to be a full time writer.  […]

On this day on Lake Michigan it was 55 & very windy.  I was REALLY cold.  My friend, M however was enjoying the warmth of the water.  Which pretty much proves it...different can be good.

Yo yo yiggity yo!  I am back from my 6 wk. self-imposed blogging hiatus of sorts.  If I hadn’t taken that time I was going to implode with ALL the frustrations.  So.  How did it go? Let’s just say that first week was flipping ridick.  I had NO idea how addicted I was.  Once I deleted […]
