A few thoughts about the tradition of oral storytelling and why it has persisted into the 21st century.
There is something amazing about reading something you've written in front of an audience and feeling that they hanging on your every word. It's a primal satisfaction; like what our ancestors must'...

There are not nearly enough books and stories about women and minorities (not to mention about women of color). It's time to change that.
Modern fiction has a problem: The vast majority of protagonists in novels and short fiction are men and most of those fictional dudes are white. It's a problem that's been bothering me for a while....

Flash fiction ripped from the headlines.
He pedaled down the alley. Alone. In the dark of night. A bag of groceries hung from one handlebar. Mostly crackers, jerky, eggs, a bottle of cheap bourbon. Music pumped through his headphones like...

In today's blog, broken technology actually forces me to work.
If it wasn't for the Internet, I think a lot more people would write books. It's actually a wonder that anything ever gets done when most of have easy access to a firehose of information, social ne...

Isn't it funny that even with all of our amazing devices and advances, you can't improve on a simple stack of paper folded in half for reading. I am increasingly convinced that books will never go away, no matter how great ebooks become.

In today's blog, the genesis of our latest short film.
Ten years ago, my good friend Ian approached me with an idea for a script. He had an idea to cast our high school friends in a musical and he wanted me to write the script. The resulting epic story...

In today's blog, I help edit a fellow writer's manuscript. With great power comes great responsibility.
"You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what's burning inside you — And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke." - Arthur Plotnik If you want to learn the mechanics of g...

In today's blog, I read a book so bad, the author is a character in his own book. Still, I learn some valuable lessons about writing.
I have a lot of books crammed into my little office at home and I'd estimate that I've only read about two-thirds of them. The rest are books that I just haven't gotten around to yet. I've spent ye...

In today's blog, I write an entire short story in one sitting and thoughts on why writing is both exercise and pain.
I am sore. I've been working out on a regular basis for the first time since my little league soccer days and it hurts. Muscles hurt that I didn't even know I had. Everything aches, but that is the...

Missing: One Moleskine notebook with two years' worth of notes. Reward: Hug and a light lunch (like a cup of soup or a salad or something). #writing  
Break out the hound dogs and round of the search party — my Moleskine notebook is missing. This is not a drill; this is a full-scale, four-alarm emergency. Alert the president that we are at DEFCON...

A spell of warm whether gets me out of the house for the first time in months. This one's for you, East Coast. It gets better.
Maybe it's just a fluke. Maybe it's climate change. Whatever the reason, the Mercury has been climbing around the Puget Sound. From the desperate depths of winter, we've seen an accidental glimpse ...

In today's blog, I reflect on a recent article about how writers with full-time day jobs "push an elephant into a Volkswagen." #amwriting  #writing
This week, I read a very interesting roundtable article by Liz Entman Harper on The Morning News. In it, seven published writers talk about how they continue writing while still having a full-time,...

In today's blog, I pass a #NaNoWriMo  milestone and find a mountain yet to climb.

#amwriting  
I hit a milestone today. This morning, while pounding out the novel I'm writing for National Novel Writing Month, my word count surpassed 15,700 words. In terms of writing 50,000 words in 30 days, ...
