What Did I Miss?: The One Day Early Edition (August 5th-11th)

I pause today from my regular blog post. It’s been a busy few days, and starting next week, things are about to get even busier.

I would, however, like to you remind you all that “Stories High XVIII” begins its run next Thursday at Bindlestiff Studio. If you are interested in going, you can buy your tickets here.

In addition, I will be appearing at the Local Authors Book Fair two weeks from today at the Mountain View Public Library. It’s a free event, and so if you are in the area, I hope you come out to that as well.

And with that, here is what you missed: Continue reading

At this time, I’m going to go ahead and break down just what you can anticipate from me this month: Continue reading

Last week, the New York Daily News released an article on how Kylie Jenner is on track to becoming the youngest “self-made” billionaire (and I put “self-made” in quotations, for a find it laughable to assign such a description to someone who comes from one of the wealthiest families in America).  What’s important about the article itself is nothing. What I do want to focus on is the corresponding tweet for it. The tweet gives a one-sentence summary of what the article is about, before posing a question: “What are you doing with your life?” Continue reading

4 Years of “A Moment’s Worth”

If I thought the stretch of time between 2014 and last year was prominent, imagine what I’m feeling now.
