Alone in the garden

he used to stand,

with a faraway-look

and a scythe in his hand,

and when people saw him,

they used to say,

“There’s Old Father Time,”

and bid him, “Good Day.”


They could not ignore him

as Time marched on

with the clock at the station

and the school bell’s, “Ding Dong.”

“The plan goes like this,” novelist Philip Roth explains. “Your grandparents die. And then in time your parents die. The truly startling thing is that your friends start to die. That’s not in the plan.”

my recent return to Seattle prompted several friends, family members, and former students to in... Read more of this blog post »

After I think my best month since I started writing, sales and reads are finally slowing down for the month. Not that I mind, I honestly expected as much and am happy that I got to experience this spike.

Now what is important, like last month is keeping this momentum for the next month. I really d... Read more of this blog post »

Not the news presses, but the book publishers who keep spewing out novels with the same plot. Full disclosure here: I read romance fiction, mostly the contemporary kind, although historical romances do have that added dimension of describing the fascinating events, customs, and dress of bygone da...

  Sometimes in negotiation, we are forced to deal not only with the issues on the table but also with concerns about keeping face. One famous instance took place in the late 1990s, when John K, the Asia-Pacific regional sales manager of Lucent, mistakenly agreed to a sale price of the network mon... Read more of this blog post »

When I read that politically incorrect, sexually explicit Jewish writer Philip Roth had died, I assumed he died from disgust at the state of the American culture and democracy during this absurd moment in American history. In 2004, Roth published a novel, THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA, which imagined... Read more of this blog post »

If i'm honest, I am a selfish person. I think everyone is. Only when the selflessness of our actions meet this can we strive to hit the middle. And It has to be about us. Our inherent nature. But when we accept this, this is when we are open to helping others. Not all of us. Fuck no. A jerk is a... Read more of this blog post »

Daniel Dunkle Daniel Dunkle's blog:
With its train heist, gangsters, and scenes of trench warfare, the new Solo movie manages to conjure not so much a galaxy far, far away as Earth at the beginning of the 20th century. And in a weird way, it works.

I went in with very low expectations. My primary concern was that Harrison Ford’s po... Read more of this blog post »

But once you've got momentum it's like you're sitting in a car that's already driving.
