Joshua Holland Joshua Holland's blog:
After my first book project fell flat, I must admit that I was pretty bummed. Writing a book is the easy part. Getting published by a publishing company is a much more difficult task. Over the past year, I had little interest in writing again. For some reason I was just demotivated and tired. The... Read more of this blog post »

Adriane M. Ziemer Adriane M. Ziemer's blog:
I received the proof of my book "Amends" today from CreateSpace. It was genuinely surreal. CreateSpace is wonderful because anyone can publish their own book.

I’m amazed at how like Holly the female model looks. And the male model comes complete with Nick’s somewhat curly, David Gandy-esque hair (and a... Read more of this blog post »

We still don’t know where memories are stored. The brain is an odd and awe-inspiring machine. How else to explain the memory that just occurred to me, years past the experience?


I was on a plane coming back from a talk in California. Soon, a drunk man sat next to me. He was already a little sniffl...

Daniel Goleman Daniel Goleman's blog:

Our emotions are driven by biological impulses. These biological impulses are beyond our control, but the resulting emotions are not.

I went back and looked at the pilot in light of what I knew about the whole series. I think the problems are much more complex than just the first episode, and because I don’t completely understand what they’re trying to do here, it’s iffy to say “This is how that first episode should have gon...
