Routines and ruts are shockingly similar. Have you ever fallen into the trap of going through the motions? 
I have to keep reminding myself why I am doing this. Who am I serving with the work that I am doing? What is the grind about? Why is important that my work be seen/heard? Why do I need to create anything?  I have been out of touch. I have been sequestered in the room where I am sitting right now for almost two full weeks. I forget the number of days it's been.  I forget that I am a writer sometimes and I forget to how to write more ...

What influence shape your #art  
Are you as afraid to stand out as I am?
#writerslife   #entrepreneur   #creative  
Every artist must question the influences that shape her work. Do we yield to influence because it is in harmony with our vision or do we yield because we are afraid to stand.

Visual Content is where it's at. +Mike Allton provides a useful guide to adding visual punch to your posts
 
How To Create Infographs, with ease

If you've always wanted to be able to publish your own clever infographs, but lacked design skills (like me), this guide is for you.

Using +Canva, you can piece together seemingly complex graphics and take advantage of the incredible branding and authority-building that great infographs can bring you.

I walk you through, step-by-step, how I created one of my most popular infographs, and blog posts, ever.

Canva is an extremely simple to use graphic design tool, and I'm going to walk you step-by-step through the method I used to create one of my most popular infographs, and blog posts, ever.

With enough time passing you can get over even the most surreal experiences. This story unfolded two months ago...and it seemed so far out of context. Now I don't think about unless I stumble across this post. 
She gathered a blue satin wrap about her arms and shoulders, hiding what needed not be hidden. Her legs, two silky stretches of cocoa-brown, lay bare. Silky stretches of cocoa-brown entered my line sight two hours earlier at Union Station. We waited for the same last train out of town.  A stunning girl with a beautiful voice, she shared it with me in under-the-breath tones, a guitar resting on the brown skin of her thighs, the lavend...

Not exactly unrequited #love
I made her a mixtape yesterday but I didn't want to call it a mixtape. I couldn't legitimately call it one because I didn't put any thought into the order of play.  I just put a bunch of songs on two CD's and gave them to her so she could have something to listen to on her road trip.  Last week when I first had a notion to make this (non) mixtape, I thought about really getting into it. But that would have been doing too much. That ...

Since we last spoke I started writing somewhere else....
Our term on the planet it indefinite. Indefinite seems like a long time. It may not be.

Story

Writer, Tech and Media Enthusist
Introduction
I grew up in rural North Carolina, traveled a bit while in the Army, and currently live in Baltimore, Maryland.

In my writing I examine the relationship between culture and commerce, with a heavy focus on the connected commercial environment of digital technology.

I enjoy connecting with artists, of all types, who slay the dragon of self-doubt and courageously share their work with the world; with entrepreneurs who risk failure and disappointment to produce things that make our lives better; and with people who care enough to try to, somehow, make a difference.
