Sorry, I can't, it's Football Season.
I get that I sound crazy. Really. When people suggest we go to the Oyster Festival and
I say, “Sure, the Redskins play at 8:30 that night and the Panthers are off.” Or when people ask about a birthday party and I say, “No,
that’s NC State weekend. We’ll be ...

How do you teach resilience?
Hollie hates winter swim team and I refuse to let her quit. There are a dozen reasons why but only two really matter. First, she smiles when it’s over. Her energy is up, she’s

We Got Lucky
It’s popular now to say “I married my best friend.” The sage advice from old married couples, the recommendations
of people who have experienced divorce, the ambition of young lovers is always “marry

So Long, Brando
I loved my Miata. It was little, sporty, quick, and an obvious declaration that it was just me and Charlie against the world. So in 2007 when we found out we were expecting Hollie, the first thing that had to go was the Miata. It was no longer just us. Most...

I love the idea of contrasting your protagonist with a foil. This is a good reminder to add dimensions to your characters.
By Rex Hurst In classic drama the term foil refers to a character which is created for the sole purpose of accenting a quality in a major character. For example in Sophocles’ ancient drama Antigone, the titular charac...

Be the change you want to see in the world. Write the book you want to read. Build the company you want to work for. Be the neighborhood you wish you had. Last time we got together with our neighbors, I
