A long weekend
I took a long weekend to relax a bit, to write and recharge. I feel fortified. Sometimes it feels as though I need to schedule time to breathe, then when I do have time I forget how to relax. I know I'm not the only writer who feels like this. For those of ...

Despite the unexpected
The San Antonio Lit Fest happened. What a whirlwind! I can honestly say that not one the lovely readers in the image below didn't impress and inspire me. We came, we read, we connected. It was beautiful.  That said, it is not easy to put together a reading ...

Microcosm
I don't talk much about the larger world here. I don't talk about world news or even local news. Instead, I talk about me and/or writing. This is a micro blog, and I'm guessing it can be more interesting some days than others. I'll keep it short today and r...

I enjoyed discussing the challenges of the writing life and the possibilities that are made with a sense of literary citizenship. Although I was speaking and reading and even acting (unexpectedly and for the first time) in a play, I managed to also listen. ...

Rattle piece: "Scratching the Silver"
I was supposed to die before anyone had a chance to tell me about my daughter. It made more sense to let everyone think I was gone for good and renew my contract work on the North Shore, to go on saving money and building balconies beneath that angry but addictive sun. I should've been content ...

New Rattle story
New Work! I have a new piece up at Per Contra. It's synergistic to be writing a Rattle story the day another one is published. I hope you enjoy it!  "Scratching the Silver" is a prequel to "West on N Road" (published in Superstition Review). It is about the...

Ask away
People have never seemed to have any reservation about asking me for favors. Usually, I'm more than happy to help out and make the time. Meanwhile, I hate asking for favors myself. I'm a horribly busy person, and those I have to ask favors from are busy too...
