All I ever wanted to do was write books and be on the radio, so naturally I went to college to study advertising.

Four years later I find myself doing marketing for a “Chuck E Cheese want-to-be” restaurant chain. I was living in my hometown (Flint, Michigan), working eighteen hours a day, making great money and feeling like I sold my soul to the devil (or in this case, a giant kangaroo that looked exactly like Chuck E. Cheese).

Fall was in the air and so was change, so I quit my high-paying job to make $90 every two weeks working four hours a day, Monday through Friday on a radio station in Cadillac Michigan.

Writer's block for me has always been a confidence issue. Either I don't believe in myself, but more often I don't believe in what I'm writing. If I'm not confident then I have to change something by better preparing myself or the material.
Oh yeah, read. We all should have some go to books, poems or stories that are of such genius, it almost makes them seem otherworldly. Like these exquisite works of art could not have been made by a common man with paper and pen (or keyboard and computer). Those always inspire me to start writing again.(less)

Write instead of watching TV, write on a Saturday Night, write when you think that no one else in the world is going to read a single page of your writing. And one more thing--finish.(less)

“Clothes are on us to expose us—to advertise what we wear them to conceal.  They are a sign; a sign of insincerity; a sign of repressed vanity;”
Alex Myers, The Time Change Trilogy - Complete Collection

“Courage is a rare and wonderful thing.  We all have it, but so few of us will speak its name.” ”
Alex Myers, The Time Change Trilogy - Complete Collection

“I stood still, vision blurring, and in that moment, I heard my heart break. It was a small, clean sound, like the snapping of a flower's stem.”
Diana Gabaldon, Dragonfly in Amber

“Know that love is truly timeless.”
Mary M. Ricksen

“People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.”
Steven Moffat

“If the Universe came to an end every time there was some uncertainty about what had happened in it, it would never have got beyond the first picosecond. And many of course don't. It's like a human body, you see. A few cuts and bruises here and there don't hurt it. Not even major surgery if it's done properly. Paradoxes are just the scar tissue. Time and space heal themselves up around them and people simply remember a version of events which makes as much sense as they require it to make.”
Douglas Adams, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

“I'll just tell you what I remember because memory is as close as I've gotten to building my own time machine.”
Samantha Hunt, The Invention of Everything Else
