Josh Karaczewski has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area his whole life - save for a year studying architecture in Boston.

He majored in Art, taking English classes for fun.

He recently moved back to teaching High School English full time after a couple years substitute teaching, which is better on the bank account, but terrible for writing. He is also a partner in his family candy business, Chastity Chocolates (www.chastitychocolates.com), specializing in high quality small batch confections and baked goods.

He has a fabulous marriage that has produced three fabulous children.

He enjoys reading, writing, art, film, and video games.

Visitors to his blog will find coupon codes, as well as extended book reviews, news, and other information useless

At the beginning of the year I made several pledges that like all writers involved, essentially reading and writing more. Today, amid all of the requirements of life I will briefly reflect on how the year has gone so far.

On my writing:
The overarching goal for the year was to commit to do something creative every day: whether writing or art, or the maintenance of my meager publishing presence. T... Read more of this blog post »
