While true that executives have influence, don’t assume you need to work your way into a C-suite position before you can be influential. No matter what your position, you can have a powerful effect on those around you, if... Read more of this blog post »

Jennifer Niven Jennifer Niven's blog:


I’m thinking about my dad today on what would have been his 75th birthday. On his last birthday, in 2002, he wrote this little message on the back of a piece of art my parents bought when we lived in Okinawa. As a little girl, I was fascinated by the mask. I wrote stories about it. Jenge was his...

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Leo is 12 weeks old.

I. KNOW.

I blinked and the kid is cooing and grabbing things and sitting up in the bumbo seat. AND I’m finally starting to feel like I’ve got my feet under me with the whole mom-of-two thing. The key for me is structure.

Robert  Black Robert Black's blog:
To be honest, I write for myself. Therapy, I suppose people would call it. So when someone buys and reads one of my stories, and calls it a piece of shit, I can only assume they have not gained the same therapeutic effect from it, as I did, when I wrote it.

I love Bible studies. I love sermons. Both have their place and both can be tremendously beneficial in the life of the church and the spiritual diet of the believer. But I’ve observed that some sermons are actually Bible studies and some Bible studies are actually sermons. Though I will grant the...

Does it feel like we’re at war with ourselves? Like the world is split into two groups, and we can’t stop fighting? It might feel like this is getting worse and worse, despite the civil wars and world wars of the past. But what if the constant fighting across these great societal divides is not a...

I'm a big fan of two Bill S. Ballinger books, Portrait in Smoke and The Tooth and the Nail.  The Body Beautiful isn't like either of those.  It's a hard-boiled p.i. novel, sort of, but it has elements of the cozy, too.

The p.i. on the case is Barr Breed, and the murder is of a beautiful chorus g... Read more of this blog post »

So Kate book was going in the wrong direction.  We scrapped it. It was decent but not great.  It had to go.


Sometimes you just have to write a bit to figure out that it’s just not going to work.  We started in the wrong place.  We now figured out which way it will go and it’s a lot better going th...

Tom Perrotta Interview with Tom Perrotta
Fresh off the series finale of HBO's adaptation of The Leftovers, Perrotta is back with a look at sex and midlife second-guessing. "I'm very interested in sex and the way that ideas about sex and what's permissible keep changing. So the fun of the book is to take a middle-aged person and plunge them into what is a youthful world of dating and sex," he says....more
